Why would you bother putting spacers on it?

Looks like we have a run up to Exmouth in a week or so. So I got into the oil leaks that formed from it sitting for so long.







Turbo looks great for the boost its pushing.




And chucked the wheel spacers on and did an alignment. I went for one and they don't include camber, that's extra, but he told me the wagon was in spec. 1.30 is max... wagon was at 1.30.. you could see it cutting v drains as it drove. bought shims myself and now its all good. Top dollar wanted.. but piss poor quality provided. didn't have to pay for the partial alignment at least.




It's all good - tyre shop


Fixed myself:



Then it was time for the Canada day celebratory drink

Are wheel spacers legal in WA?

Can't have them like that in Vic, tyres outside bodywork. Our constabulary will give you a ticket for that. (The law is something like 'tyres must be totally covered when viewed from above'.) Our local lot get to use the rule a lot on long weekends and holidays.

Personally I reckon it looks great You sir, have some skills!

Not legal. not stressed.

They pop out about 15mm in the front. the rear looks fine and the mud flaps cover from the rear so shouldnt have any issues.

I do like the look myself. took it for a test drive today. everything is smooth and stable.

Small update as normal, basically trip north was great, even got the missus into the water for her first ever snorkel and she loved it.

We had 1 issue and that was the front brakes started siezing up due to what was later discovered as rust. most likely from the old girl sitting for a year at a time before moving again. I was able to do a temp fix and get us home safely though. otherwise flawless running for over 2500kms.



Then we have the winning feature, a brand new jerry can holder to replace my old one I had powder coated. it looks amazing and the strap is mint.






Onto the photo of how the rig returned home, so yes, it does get used:



And after some hours of work:








I may do a small trip write up on the blog. ill see how it goes. enjoy

Small update before it goes for its photoshoot.

Basically needed to redo the temporary mudflaps. A shop did them and they look, well.. quality. So I touched them up. best I could with what was left.









Also did a quick lick of paint on the vertical window runners to looks a bit cleaner.



Also removed the hitch for a cleaner rear look as its not a nice factory rear bar.



And prepped for tomorrow nights shoot with bakerboy:
