    Note that for a rust converter to work you need rust on there, IE dont clean it back to white metal just knock off anything loose with a chipping hammer and hand powered wire brush.

    Got a bit of an oil leak from the pinion seal on the rear diff, breather was clogged, cleared it out and hoping that solves the problem. Always seems to happen this time of year

    Cleaned up a bit this arvo while having a cold Tuatara APA. It's not as bad as it looked but I'm still a bit worried about the active rust inside the chassis, going to buy a rattle can of fish oil and spray as much as I can in there



    Tried to fit the alloys & BFG muddies off the Surf on but the offset is way wrong. Gonna just wire wheel these steelies when I get new tyres and respray them white

    Rear diff is still seeping so that's a job for later in the week. Need to pull the bashplate off the gearbox/transfer case/PTO and work out where the oil is coming from there, too

    Much better without the underbite I reckon. Considering trimming the brackets off the winch housing and just leaving it like that. Who needs a bar?

    Also what's the approved temporary fix for a hole in the exhaust? It's blown through and sounds like a fuckin semi with a bit of throttle.

    Section of tin can (watties spagetti with extra cheese) to cover hole and some, exhaust cement smoothed on before tin can, then 2x exhaust clamps done up tight.....

    Temp only .....
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    Did a bit of work with the angle grinder on the winch housing, need to get a new bit fabbed up, nylon rope and a hawse fairlead, will take another 50mm off the approach angle. Also been de-rusting and repainting the bash plates, lots of stuck/broken bolts with the rust. Also changed the rear diff pinion seal which was seeping. Note improvised impact wrench. And patched the exhaust. Won't pass a WOF when it's due I assume. What would a full new 2.5" stainless exhaust cost, roughly?

    I figured I may as well spring for stainless and have it last?
