Nice looking truck. You're right about it being quiet, I was one of the regulars and even I don't check in much now.
I've got a Calmini'd Vitara commercial which I have an ingoing love/hate relationship with - as in I love to hate it. When it works it's great, but it often, well, doesn't. I'm in the process of replacing a couple of split heater hoses, just waiting in some silicone elbows, and the it's hopefully 'laning time.

Yep, I have periods where I try and post a few things to get people talking, but it still doesn't create much action. I thought Munkee would have replied, but not even heard from him.

Jeez, Don't bring me into it! I'm on here every day, but life is hectic at the moment. Got a few projects on at home, so time is limited!

My Ugly Truck sailed through it's MOT a few months ago (YAY!), the MX5 is going for MOT tomorrow (just spent a LOAD getting it ready), I'm building a koi pond at the moment which is killing me, and trying to polish a few bikes for a show the weekend after next \m/

Ube, you going to warwick? :popcorn:

Unless something serious and unforeseen happens, then yes. Hopefully bringing the RatBastard, too.

Roadkill is on, but it's going to be next year before any major (supercharged!) progress :)

Surely it's fair to bring you into it seeing as you're the club chairman now? :-?

Sort it out Munkee!

The club Facebook group is starting to get livelier so some of you guys should head over there too.

Hello 'all' ;)

I still check-in from time-to-time, but it still seems quiet on here :(

We're still active, 'laning at least once a month (Yorkshire tomorrow!)

Currently maintaining the big blue S200KYS Jimny and building up a more basic / lighter / daily driver red Jimny too, as time permits...

Nice Vit' Dean! B-)

:hal:

Last trip was to do Strata Florida and some other 'lanes in the area...
