Vintageflathead found this hefty box at a second hand shop and donated it to our collection. What a great find! What a wonderful present!

The next day I could fit the new hose. It was a snug fit, but that means there' s less risk of leakage. So the repair is a success!
Officially the 4 wheel drive script was intended to be used on the tailgate, so it seemed logical to add it to the tail gate of our Jeep. A test drive showed that the choke and carburetor did not work as intended. The Jeep had not been used for a while and some linkages were stuck. After freeing these everything worked well and there were no electrical problems behind the dashboard and no leak from the tank. I think I need to get this Jeep out more!

While clearing out the rubbish left in the garage after a messy rebuild of the roof on our house, I decided a second workbench would be a good addition. I also moved all the crates that were on a shelf to the shelf under the new workbench. This feels much safer as there will be fewer itens that can fall from the shelf onto an unsuspecting car. The photo above shows the new bench. I wonder how long I can keep the worksurface clear. Below the number one bench at the other end.

I re-edited some video highlights of our 2005 trip to Australia. Amazing nature and beautiful desert and tropical forest tracks. It was an unforgettable adventure.
