How much would one pay for a 3sp crash box these days? I will need one soon and people tell me these are kind of rare now, a guy I kind of know has two and I have noidea what they are worth these days as I am from the days when we chucked them out when doing celica conversions.

Countdown

Well.....last training hike tommorow. Looks like it will be a 10 hour one. Should be a good "leg stretcher" ready for Kokoda in just under 2 weeks.

Have I done enough training?...Have I got the unwanted weight out of my back-pack??...Will I last the distance??.....the answer to these questions (at least) is Yes :)
I have dropped about 5kgs since I started training some months back and I can now handle my pack loaded (approx 10kg) on a long hike, don't have to stop much and I can recover quite well on the short straights/flats.
I recon I will return and say I should have done more...but at this point I feel I have at least done enough :)
I still haven't had any alcihol since X-mas/New Year and have stopped the snacks after tea...as well as reducing the other carp I had been eating.

HR body

After 4yrs of my HR sitting in the shed waiting to be stripped ready for a birthday I finaly got the old girl down to a rolling shell. I won the lotto on the shell as the floors are great, the rails and around the tank area are in tip top shape. My doors and front panels have the usual rust but over all a good result. I will post piccys tommorow, two whole days and a few longnecks and a kick in the arse by some mates is all it took to get me out in the shed so glad I bit the bullet and started.

Thing behind rear spring shackle on HK-T-G

Back in November 1969 dad bought a brand new beige (Pharoah Gold) HT wagon, complete with big banger 161 and three-on-the-tree quickshift. Being 11 years old at the time, I was all over and under it like a rash. One thing i never worked out was the purpose of these attachments on the body near where the back of the rear springs attach. You can see them clearly in this pic from Dusty's shed.
