    Barra conversion completed now to get it passed by the engineer. Need a weighbridge ticket and his certificate. Sorted all the little issues with elec fans and speed sensor etc. Test driven around the neighbourhood a few times and it is basically sorted.
    Have contemplated trying to get bigger tyres and a better GVM towing capacity included in the engineer report. But engineer advised that GVM upgrades are very hard to get through right now and getting the tyre size increase will involve testing and higher costs.

        Have been a bit slow on getting weighbridge and Engineer approval. Other projects have surfaced

        Still collecting parts though purchased 5 265 X 75 x 16s (almost 32's) and some 4.11 gears front and rear gearsets and Dana 30 auto locker. Still trying to get hold of a reasonably priced SYE and double cardon rear driveshaft.

        These parts will be added after engineer certification.
