Re: Banner photo

Hmm I'm happy for anything thats Suby and off road related - I don't actually have anything really that suitable haha. If it can be done, maybe we could create a shortlist of different members photos with a poll for selection. It can be done but I will have to ask for that permission to be unlocked...

Re: EJ head bolts - how many times can they be used?

Bennie the bolts are not stretch limited but they should be replaced if this is the second time they have been used.

How hard would it be to throw up a photo for the main forum banner. Spruce this new forum up a little! And, give us some eye candy when on here...
what photo do you have in mind and I can see if I can do it but it may be up to an admin with more privileges that me or El_Freddo

Re: Meet the Admin / Moderators ...

I’m liking the new titles Toonga, I didn’t know who or how that was done. As for the Mod status, I’m now counted in - short learning curve but it’s going well ;) I’m looking forward to some new activity and members as well as more activity from “returned” members. Cheers Bennie Many years ago I was...

Re: Engine and gearbox painting - got hints/tips??

Bennie not a problem Corax had a gearbox done a while ago it came up really well With the cost of air compressors, I might have to look into the cost of having someone do this for me - then weigh up whether it's worth buying my own or having someone do the job professionally (the professional job i...

It also looks like your build thread is due for an update! Personally I like the look of some big wattage driving lights ;) Are you able to upgrade the gl...
