MY12 MG Overland CRD...clean and dirty
 
Thought I'd throw up a few pics of my new(ish) toy.
The day I got it from the dealer

Since then I have been inspired by some of the small mods done by others on here.
Chrome mouldings off

Chrome badges off (I've left the Overland one on at this stage, may still take it off)

Planning to paint the grill and rear brow Mineral Grey and to gloss black the rims, probably in the New Year now..
Will look into painting or vinyl wrapping the chrome window and rear step trims too. If I can get hold of some painted door handles that will be done as well.

Last weekend I went away up into the Victorian high country with my caravan and went on a little bit of a 4WD trip too.

The water was only 1ft deep at the most, so no issue there.
The factory tyres are Kumho Solus KL21.
Pretty crap tyre if you ask me and I was a bit concerned when we hit a very steep, rocky and rutted climb, but they got me there and have suffered no damage, so I was slightly impressed by them.

Great pictures and destination- thanks for sharing. Love the color of your ride too, looks really nice. I'd love to see a shot of the Jeep crossing that stream if you have one.

Is that Craigs Hut in the photo? I thought it burnt down.

Yep...............it burnt down in 2007 in the bushfires up there and was rebuilt by popular demand.
Amazing to think that it was originally built as a movie set too..

Thanks.

We are planning a trip through eastern Victoria in April next year, so we might check it out....
