Re: Benn0's build up thread

Sales guy emailed me, the car will be ready on Monday. I dropped my rims off to get fitted with the ST Maxx, they will be ready on Monday too. And I'm off to straddie for the weekend, it's all happening....

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Shame you won't have the GC ready for your Straddie trip...
If you are really keen to test it out as soon as you get it you could always do a day trip to Bribie. The inland access track is pretty nice and soft at the moment, so is a good fun test (though if this rain keeps up it will make it easier going and a bit less fun)!

Re: Benn0's build up thread

When did ST Maxx's start coming out in that size? They would have been my pick also but it was either ST or STT for that size when I was looking. Nice rims too.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

They just started landing late April apparently. Just picked them up this morning, cost an arm and a leg, they better be good.... Sorry for the crappy pic quality, just too busy at the moment.

The weather on straddie was awful, raining on friday, had to do a 20km run back up main beach to pick up a mate who arrived late on the ferry. It was a real struggle with no spotties on the cruiser, and the rain pelting down. Then getting back over the dunes was more like mud than sand, it was so wet and heavy. At least my maxtrax got tested, they work.

Anyway, I pick up the Jeep tomorrow, just ringing around insurance now, looks like NRMA are doing the best deal for me.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

So Benn0 - what are the chances of sleeping tonight. Excited or what...?

ETA: I'm excited and it's not even mine.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Dunno, didn't sleep much on my camping trip, still catching up.... the adrenalin will be kicking in when I hand over that cheque though, should be a fun drive home from Mt Gravatt.

Looking forward to the pics when you do get it home.

Re: Benn0's build up thread

And after 5 and a bit months I finally have it in my garage..... funny how much bigger the garage looks with this in there than when I had the cruiser....



Next I have to start pulling bits off it and stick new bits on it.....

Re: Benn0's build up thread

Very nice.....but I'm curious,

Why did you option your Limited with the 18's and then go and buy another set of 18's?
Wouldn't it have been cheaper to just get the Coopers fitted to the car when it arrived?
