What did you do to your GU today?

Recommended Posts

I bought it from Perth4x4"]http://www.perth4x4.com.au/ a few weeks ago. I can't remember exactly how much, it it was around the $500 mark. They are meant to be a lot stronger than the lokka auto-lockers, and a mate who helped me fit it (or did fit it ;)) has got a lokka one and he confirms that the springs/pins are much more robust in the spartan

Emptied it after getting back from 3 days driving around the flinders. Had an awesome time. Only minor damage to the rear bar.. have to fix that one day..

Now to plan the new rear draws, got a few ideas.....

Removed the remnants of the hinge cover :( Nissan wants $219 prepaid and it's 3 weeks to get it from Japan. So, the hunt is on.

The hungry Nissan Parts man has been defied :D $35 is a lot better than $219, even if it was black. One coat of paint applied, second coat tomorrow and a week to harden, a light polish and she'll be whole again. The Holt's Polar white is a little less creamy than the real deal, but won't really be noticeable between the black spare and red/amber taillight plastic.

Took my aldi winch off rotated gearbox than couldn't get it back on I have to try tomorrow when I get more patient and fixed my spotlight from rubbing on the bullbar

I need to do this on my tigerz. I used it last weekend and getting to the handle could be easier if it wasn't pointing towards the engine!

What did u have probs with? Lining something up? Interested to hear how you go.

Turning the gearbox was easy as I just couldn't align the bolts upto the bullbar and hold the winch in place at the same time

Took roof rack off and draws out of the back as I don't have any big trips planned for a while. With all the crap out of the back the car looks like it sits 1-2" higher.. all the gear must weigh a bit!

Can put the dogs in the boot now, my rear seats can get a clean!

Still got half the flinders in/on the car.. might treat it to a wash and polish this weekend if I can get motivated.

Cheers if I can get a mate to help me get the winch in and out I'll give it a shot this weekend.

Fitted Anderson plug to rear kaymar bar. Used 6B&S wire and got under the troll to cable tie it along the chassis. I protected the wire with that bendy curly stuff that has a slit in it and it slides over the wire.
