General Discussion / Re: Sub Structure for Deck

That's something for me to think about.
I want to install decking around our spa, on top of the pavers.


Did that for a client once and they wanted to keep it low so we used 50x50x1.6 square galv joists and a heap of window packers with construction adhesive for levelling and then wingteks for the decking with dampcourse between the galv and decking although you can use bituminous paint on the steel if you're not fussed about spillage.

Construction adhesive to the packers and pavers/concrete is just to hold the galv joists in place while you fix the decking as it's not going to move once it's all decked

You want straight in timber then always use LVLs for flooring- https://www.chhsoftware.com/designit/

Add a bit more to the front guards and you could probably get it Registered.
And whats with those discoloured lights.

Add a couple of steady bar  mounts to the doors  with LED Spots  and it will be a nice shooting wagon .

And it is snowing atm at Glenn Innes, 100 klm away.
Go figure.

And blowing 40km/h+ winds (gusts 75km/h+) all day today another 100km south in Armidale...

Snowing/sleet in Uralla as well... think it had an effort here, but it's warm inside so I didn't go out to see.

Not in the man cave but out in the paddock...........close to a man cave  ;) !

We ( 0vr 55 & myself ) took one stock Kia Sportage and added a little love and know how to turn it into the best little farm truck in Stanthorpe  ;D
Thanks to the infonet we found that Jeep rear springs fit and give about 3in+ in the rear along with Rav4 1998 rear shockies.
The front was lifted with the help of 35mm ally spacers machined up by my son.  Bolted on some slightly more argressive rubber and your done  :cheers:

A couple of LED Light bars to see in the dark and it was beer o'clock  :cup:

Running 15psi the little beast climbs almost anything !!

Currently watching Jake and Elwood on SBS.  (The Blues Bothers.)

A Standout movie of its time!!!
I get the impression some of the cast paid their own money to be in the film.
Probably not true, but entertaining all the same.
