Thumbs up to the proprietor of Farkaway Electrics
« on: February 21, 2016, 08:24:53 AM »
Needed to finish up fitting up the winch and controller etc..

So got a message (its ok, don't call 911 it wasn't on the phone) from Captain G Farkaway sayin he was free in the arvo...

Headed over there round  4 (take note -the Berwick Inn has no bottle-o!!! so still o him a slab), and a couple of hours later, Captain perfection (no corners cut EVER, and everything spot on) had the Albright mounted, wired up to the rebuilt winch and running cables into the cab so he could fit incab switches on the center console - pretty switches that light up and all.  :cup:

First test run of the winch saw CGF nearly on the ground pissin himself as when the winch ran, the parkers on teh car went on too... and at first so did every ****in light on the dash.. It was to be known as a safety feature...

So we spooled all the plasma and sleeves on to the winch, then we decided against the safety feature so he fixed that :cup:

Albright much neater and tidier than the large control box.

While he did that I fitted up the LED kit to the cargo area interior lights - all I can say is  WOW!!!! - you need to do it.. that's all I'll say...

So once again many thanks to GG of FAE for his time and attention to detail.. and teh man with a tool for every situation. I want that crimping tool!



PS.. that isn't a cubby house, you could easily live in that. its the same size as a mates flat in Malvern he pays 220/wk for
