Thanks Clay. Not a show car but is a tidy unit. Good to meet you on the weekend. Cheers

We arrived back in Adelaide late yesterday after nearly 4 days on the road.
Now that I have the wipers working thanks to Clay lending me a wiper motor, only rain was yesterday afternoon.

I did have break down on the way home. Front uni joiner on the tailshaft dropped a cap out.
Only 25 km's from Jamestown and with the help of Lennies, we were able to get a replacement with fitting at the Stihl dealer.
Go figure. Quick drive back to the car, bolted in and off home in the rain.
Also go to have a back out vehicle and driver, thanks Anne-Marie :heartt:
Cherers,
Roger
