Time for some fun.
 
Feb 2012
 
 
Mar - April 2012
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
27 Sept 2012
 
I spotted this on the way home from work at the local yard on the main highway. I instantly wanted it because I used to own it. Here is a quick history. I had it for 6 months (simply added some lights and a battery and got it on the road) and sold it 2 weeks later to a family friend. I lost contact with them for a few years to find it in the yard. I find out from the yard that they had it sitting for 3 years in the shed because of the rear left brake slave cylinder blew and half finished installing a new one. I went to the bank and handed over the money.
 
It arrives on the 10th Oct. (Delivery for 3 miles is $65! Angry)
 
Specs:
 
LN46 with an L engine
Minimal Rust
Unknown modification plate (maybe seatbelt change)
fiberglass canopy and styleside (little rust)
Rear Bench and front bucket seats in good condition
Steel Side Steps
 
Forgot to get a photo of the engine :(
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Plans thus far are to get it on the road before Christmas.
 
Aiming for dead standard with 33x12.5R15 BF Boodrich All Terrain T/A's.
 
If anyone can help out with parts or cheaper shipping that'd be great!
 
 
P.S. Here is a photo from behind the quadbike (my work toys)

Vision has some LED lightbars that are frickin insane! their 8" one is brighter than 4-8" hellas and only draws like 3 amps! but they are a bit expensive but damn bright and last longer than the rig they get put on.
90% of the USA's issues can be cured by removing all the warning labels.

I have used LED light bars before but at the moment I just want the interior lights and indicators in LED. If I had the cash spare I'd definatley be getting one but a 12,000lbs winch is first on the list after it is on the road
