Looks good and strong. I made my own so I could get it the height I wanted it. Can't bear bending over all the time on standard ones!

Looking good, Dave...

Handy tools, those cordless drills/drivers. When I didn't have my 14.4 Volt 3/8" Skil I thought it was one of those "superfluous" tools; now that I have it I can't happen but wonder how could I ever lived without one!

rebuild one drive shaft with new boots and then remove the knocking drive shaft and replaced with a decent one. Then with hoodoos help, replaced the rear wheel bearing. (Thanks John)
Tomorrow is prop shaft off and check breather on front diff and try and find the leak on the front diff, and maybe add some carpets back into the car.

We'll give this thread a try.

Went to bed on the couch at 5:30am then jumped on by Nathan and woken at 7:30am. Watched the kids while the wife went for breakfast with her sister and mum. Got the decorations up for Noah's 4th birthday party. Read the boards. Played a quick flash game. Changed a couple of diapers. Met the grandma-in-law for the first time (she's staying here till monday) Looked at the kids new $678 bunk-beds the wife got yesterday. paid $926 worth of bills ( missed a couple last month :oops: ) Looked at the Niva with the father-in-law. Had the party and Ate two hot dogs and cake. Dropped mother-in-law off at the mall and put $55 of gas in the concorde came home ate more cake and coffee and started writing this :P

Still haven't had a chance to bolt the doors back on :(

Chow 4 now

Nope.. Unless you consider ... I whistled at some girls.. smoked some cigs and drank some beers but there was no wrenching involved. unless trimming your nails is considered using tools :P I wish i had time to do more Bloke stuff. At least now i understand the full purpose of the thread now.

You aren't implying my teste's are going to fall off are you.. at least the wife has a firm grip on 'em so they won't fall on the ground :P

Cutting nails only counts if you use an air powered sheet metal nibbler or an angle grinder.
