    I have been tinkering with things again.Two weeks ago i made a snorkel for my truck from PVC down pipe.Tested it out then on the weekend i painted it and stuck it together.I like it,might be too much for some though.

    Also added something i have been threatening to do for years.Beefed up pissa jets for the wipers.I removed the hoses that went to the bonnet pissa jets and ran it to these.

    This arvo i had a muck around with the bass boat yak.

    Have been playing around with different ideas for awhile.If you want a hand yell out dean.Supercheap auto has cheap cans.Go spend $30 and you have near ten cans.The colours i have used are machinery grey,creation blue,terracotta,brunswick green,the old faithfull mission brown,lime green,matt black,gloss black,gloss white.The Pattern is created with leaves cut from the bush out front of my place.Plus a chainsaw bar and chain.

    That shed looks familiar, and the camo is amazing, as the Japs say "if you can't hide something, make a feature out of it"- looking good .pete

    PVC snorkels work great and are whole lot cheaper than the commercial offerings, a couple of my mates have made their own, Love the paint job too

    nice mate!

    You have all bases covered..... cross a deep river, you'll either make it thru or jump into the bass boat and float out!

    What did you buy?I can tailor the camo to suit mate dont worry hahahahhahah.


    I have a lot of bases covered now.My collection is growing.Not drinking has its advantages.I can spend more on toys.
