Here a few pick from the Anne Beadell trip my syncro was just on. My parent took my syncro as I was stuck at work. Alll up there was 2 syncro's one T3 2wd, two other 4wd and about 4 early kombi's. They tell be they had lost of fun and had very few issues apart from corication related stuff. anything plastic that could brake did, even the headlights broke loose. the door broke a catch and the suspension bushes are now being totally replaced as there was about 5 mm moment in the upper control arm. The interesting thing was the two syncros broke there rad. fan brackets but the 2wd didn't. I guess the extra weight of the syncro fan was just to much. anyone come across this before? Anyway I will post a full list of the damage and how we upgrade stuff as I get a change. P.S. you have to love race tape.Cheers,
The pic showing the right front view shows what appears to be a manufacturer’s sticker on the bull bar. It would be interesting to know who it is.

Hey careful what you say there Michael about not being the prettiest. She does have feelings you know. IF you think that bull bar was heavy, as I said the original Telstra one was 3 times heavier. Did you take out all the cupboards that I built to fit in your gas tank? How did you fit this new locker. Are you happy with the gas conversion? I took that girl up Gulaga near Narooma once along a v steep fire trail. You should have seen the look on the bushwalkers coming down the track, Sheer astonishment. Now she's got diff locks? Wow.
Love to see some interiors of the old girl, I'll
attach some pics for you when she was a bit more youthful.
