Fixed my reverse camera (first one from Jeff had a broken wire caused during my installation). I had ordered a cheaper one from ebay which was essentially junk and now reverted back to my second on from Jeff. Nice reminder to not be cheap (every time I try it back fires).

Also cleaned it after two long weeks of use and rain. I hadn't seen it that messy ever

Hottie!


Added coolant, oil top-up, and gassed the AirCon during my lunch break - just a light one today after last nights' late-night window sprayer reservoir headache; some of the plastic items are showing their age, like the pump nozzle that broke straight off into the tubing

New battery this week sorted a lot of niggles that I haven't had time to address during the summer break - splashed out on a proper one from the main dealer as a prelude to finally fixing my wonky suspension. Just one more damper, that's what I keep telling the wife....

Replaced Front bumper Upper Attachment plastic... Too many screws and junk just to get to the dang thing

Then I saw a gnarly scratch next to the kidney grill, and so some touch up paint is en route!

andrewwynn will become famous soon enough

Just received the personal plates for wife's copy we call her Lumba2 short for lumba-lumba meaning dolphin in Indonesian.

Also added a stencil :


Replaced the front wipers because they sounded funny (like flipping over too much). Turned out the noise was from a broken wiper linkage! So rather than buy a new one for $4-600 or used for $200 decided to fix it with some good old fashioned steel sweat and swears. I posted details on the what broke thread.

Got a local shop to Drain and fill Front, Rear Differential with SAF-XO fluid. The drained fluid appeared to be factory fill.
performed Transfer case adaptation reset. The VTG fluid wear fault was set, now cleared.

Agreed, very nice !

I've been avoiding my beast todo list. Getting started on the easy ones first.

Well pre cat O2 sensors changed, 10 min job if you know what you are doing.

The bosch units from Amazon look exactly to match factory originals that were on X since birth.
