Peter & Annie's Syncro at Camden

Syncronauts

I thought you would be pleased to know that Peter Coe stopped in here today on his way home to Port Macquarie with his 'new' Syncro Camper. He is very very pleased with it, and it is quite a nice vehicle. He already owns a T3 Trakka 2WD and immediately noticed just how much more solid it feels on the road.

Here are a few photos for those that get this via email

Regards
Mark.

Mark,
 
Nice bus Peter has there - he will get to hang out in Hart in syncro land Port Macquarie.
 
We have planned another stay in late December again up that way and hopefully if we don't get washed away like last year with a leaking tent we will be able to all catch up.
 
I would get rid of that Bull bar though - the approach angle looks fairly bad with that attached.
 
Cheers,

Scott

Scott,

Good point.  That is a completely ridiculous design.

 

Peter,

If you want a good front bar, try to get the Trakka or similar.  I will post a picture tomorrow.

The mounts look like they are running underneath the spare wheel carrier.  Could this possibly be so?

Hey guys, checked it out. The spare wheel is accessed ok. But look at these photos I took of the mounting underneath!!!!!

 

Peter

 

 

 

Peter,
Forgive me but that roo bar would be far better utilised as a gate in a sheep dip or else sink it with the next naval ship finding its next life as a tourist underwater dive site.
 
Absolutely diabolical in every respect on a syncro in terms of design, functionality and appearance. Did I miss something? It easily takes the wooden spoon as the worst ever syncro roo bar. Did you get the name of the designer/builder of this monstrosity? WE need to know who to avoid.
 
You'd be way in front just taking the whole lot off and simply stay with the original bumper bar already there.
 
Cheers.
Ken

I think our ugly steel bullbar plus clunky brackets was probably
runner-up for worst Syncro bullbar. We removed it on the weekend and
the improvement in appearance was dramatic. Looking forward to a test
drive to see whether removing 30-odd kg (including plastic awning
roll) from the front will make a big difference to the ride. Just goes
to show that not all successful mods need be expensive! Now just need
to source a nice alloy replacement, or avoid those bulls....

I think you both should provide photos of Exhibit A and B and post them here. We can then vote which is the worst ever ............ ok

Australia's #1 job site If It Exists, You'll Find it on SEEK

Will do. I assume posting photos is allowed?

 

Peter

 

Peter,
Absolutely yes. Attach them to your email reply to the forum and even better for educational purposes and posterity, file them into the photos section of the forum. Beware, the latter is mind boggling for a first time user.
Cheers.
Ken

Thanks Les. I set up an album called “bull bars” and put up three pics I have. Will add some better ones tomorrow. I would take off that monstrosity but doesn’t it provide some crash protection?

 

Peter

 

I agree Ken. It is a shocker. My T3 Trakka has a lovely alloy white one that replaces the front bumper. Much nicer unit. Once I replace the shocks I have to get new wheels/tyres and then will sort out the bull bar.

 

I will be putting the Trakka up on carsales.com tomorrow to see if I can get a sale.

 

Cheers, Peter
