Got rid of all the rattles in the Land Cruiser doors... weatherstrips fitted, and one bit of bailey channel replaced. Much quieter now... can nearly hold a conversation in it...

Kiwis will do anything to drink at the beach, it seems.

This group of New Year's Eve revellers got busy at low tide on Sunday and spent the early afternoon building a sandcastle in the middle of the Tairua estuary, a holidaymaker, who asked not to be named, said.

Upon building their sandy fort, members of the group were reported to have said the liquor ban didn't apply to them as they were "in international waters".

Wouldn’t recommend Dynamat on vehicle floors.  Inside doors, yes.  Recommend Dynapad for floors and internal firewalls.

Sorry OP .. I Should have Noted the Dynamat was set up  as removable Mats in the Floor pans and under front seats to allow for hosing them out, The transmission tunnel had it stuck on .

That is not why Dynamat is not recommended for vehicle floors.  Dynamat is not the correct product for vehicle floors.  The correct product is Dynapad and it will provide a superior sound insultation for floors.   :cheers:

problem with a lot of these carpet places, they don't have a great selection of carpet colours to match your current stuff.. I tried Knox Carpet that people have raved about for decades, but they had about half a dozen colours. Great service - made it while I waited <10mins but the wrong fuggin colour.. hard to mistake, the car was in their doorway so he could match it :( and Nissan only want $900.00 - not for the complete car either, I didn't price the rest.

After Tuesday's ripper of a storm that took the roof off the Clarence Hotel, the show grounds pavilion roof and main grandstands roof.
It also blow the roof off one of the toilet blocks, yet the toilet paper stayed.
How is that possible?????
