    Thanks guys. :thumbup: Time for an update............ Car Port. I built the carport and the Hilux proved invaluable. I bought a fancy new saw. Dyna-bolted a joist to the house wall giving a nice fall. Then came out from that with level joists/rafters. I fixed galvanised shoes...

    Thanks Clive. :thumbup: I tried taking it easy and spent 2 days doing nothing when I last got out of hospital but I found it really depressing as it gave me too much time to think and dwell on the fact I was only half way through the treatment and still had another 3.5 months of chemo and...

    Radiator Cowl and Viscous Fan. So years ago I stupidly sold the genuine KZJ70 radiator cowl I had as I was running a body lift and so it wouldnt fit (radiator mounts to body and so goes up with a body lift). I'd been running an alluminium cowl I knocked together years ago but I was never...

    Thanks guys. :thumbup: Apologies for the slow reply/update. The treatment has been going well, still no sign of any cancer remaining/come back and the doctors are all very impressed and happy with my progress. I'm almost half way through the intensive chemo/blinotumomab stage now. I've got...

    Hi Jozef, Thanks. I must get another update up soon as I’ve done a few bits on my LJ78 lately. That second tray is standard on 70’s that got the winter pack which included 2 starting batteries, heated fuel filter and headlight washers. There’s quite a few LJ and KZJ 70’s in NZ so I’d imagine...
