I might be in the same boat soon ... I'm wanting to get a larger secondary tank (about 175ltrs) but to do that I have to remove the spare wheel. I might put the wheel in a cover and then place it behind the drivers seat ... if it'll fit. Otherwise I have to fork out $1300 for a spare wheel arm to sit at the rear of the Cruiser ... Hmmmm ... cyclops

My old Nikons were easy enough to strip and clean. But everything is plastic these days thus 'disposable'. Hope it works out for you.

the rain is really pissing me off. I need 3 clear days to finish a bathroom on a job about 140k out and get back home here for a mate's mums funeral on Thursday arvo. 40mm today and flood warnings out at the moment. If it's still raining tomorrow, that's blown it. Can't beat the weather, I suppose.

After having to cancel our trip with Scols to get some much needed work done
on the rav4,We are only half way there to getting the car fixed,And $300 later,
The mechanic must be as deaf as a post because he was the only one who cant hear the metal on metal screaching comming from the right front wheel..
So i got him to take the front wheel off and check the brakes the bearings
but still cant find the culprit!!!But the noise is definatley there!!!!

Got HER Territory serviced last week. Bit hurtfull but, $700+. But shouldn't complain, took it to the Ford crew here and they actually found some of the noises I've been hearing for months. Previously serviced by a mate who missed the noises. Think I'll stay with Ford a while
