Just had a great w/end at Coffs Harbour, the reason for the drive south was to catch up with Mr Ketsi himself. Had a lazy arvo, a few  :cheers: & a feed & a few more  :cheers:. Went for a drive on Sunday up to Dorrigo via the Waterfall Way, then over to Platapus Flat for a bite to eat on the Nymboida river before wandering back down the mountain to Coramba. Pic to follow. :cheers:

 ;D I finally did it! I spotted a shiny silver Patrol with dual tyre carriers and canvas bag on RHS spare.  It came out of Ramsay? Drive onto Reservior Rd and headed to Smithfield, right at traffic lights (Stanton Rd?) about 6.30am? Have piccy on phone... not a good one though.....
Think it was another Paul too.... Did you see a little MAN truck in the rear view.....

Ahhhhhhh, you got me. I was heading to Cooktown for 3 days of fishing with a few mates from work. Wednesday night in Cooktown was pretty messy.....hehehehe


Had to stop at Smithfield to pick up a mate and his boat, had the joy of towing it to Cooktown.... :cheers:

It was great to meet you Bushman :cheers:. I also ran into barneys while having a long chat with JT at the trackabout stand. It was great to meet a few people from the forum at the show.

Spotted a white pathfinder down Swallow road today, right near where we were tipping greanwaste from the cyclone clean-up.
Looked very much like Matto's tug.

So you picked my rig from the passenger mirror 5 cars ahead  ??? I better not rob a bank if it's that easy to pick  :police:

Does your Prado have a lightweight flap thing at the back? If so, it stands out horizontal when you get over about 40 (which is rare on the 4 I'll admit). Not sure it'll stop too many rocks.

It does have flaps on the back, not sure i'd call them lightweight, these ones are a little bit more rigid that i am running at the moment. so i wouldn't have expected that.. i'll have to get the gopro out and record some video.

i pick out most modified 4wds, they give me something to drool over in the traffic  :cup:

actually joff are you talking about right at the back hanging off the tregg? if so this is part of the stonestomper..helps to cover a gap between the mesh and the bar.
