It's Christmas Eve here which always makes me think of our mate Pete Lawler who wrote and can be heard here singing this song with the band he played bass in Weddings Parties Anything. Pete and I were sharing a house when we started building the Spirit of Sunshine.
Happy Christmas Everyone whichever way you slice it.

Here's Pete..

Wooohoooooooo!
Does your mate understand polarity?
It's OK, we've fixed the winch...
Best news in ages, we might have both tanks there if Gray gets off his papoose.

The Chev has been running on the Motec. Yet to confirm when we get it to dyno. It is coming here first for a trial fit so we can plan the air intake arrangement. Foils being made for the front and rear axles, fronts will cover the tie rods and well. Also investigating a cover for the king pins and steering arms...hows that?
