Right. Behind a grey? Something you’re not telling us I think though you did hint at a 283 earlier.

Hey Gaz your ute is looking good the repairs look awesome please keep the photos coming, I think I'm going to see your ute before you get to my place :errr:

Glad you didn't have the drama with your tunnel replacement that I did, I suppose thats the difference when you are dealing with one unmolested as opposed to god knows what was done to mine before I got it.
