    With wof at the end of the month thought I better sort me shit and get it ready. For the past two months the tray has only been held on by two m14 bolts. that and mud flaps, got some flaps on super cheap but their a bit small. Should be sweet for wof, I’ll keep an eye out for plastic to make some more. new tail exhaust too. Took it from 1.75” to a mighty 2” and the muffler from 600mm to 500mm.

    Ash’s 85 Toyota crumpy

    Went out again today for a bit of a play. Headed up to the ship wreck, came across a bloke in his 2wd company vehicle bogged a couple km’s away from the exit. Super smart cookie after snatching him out we were a couple hours from full tide. Decided to head for it and made a dash for Wilson’s. Getting around the trees we had to wait for the waves to pull out and plant it around before the next wave. Made for some excitement, but turns out ye ol crumpy doesn’t like drinking salt water. made some horrible noises and with the dizzy being wet it ran mostly on 2-3 cyl for some time. This meant for unburnt cyl where its basically key banged its way down the beach for a couple km’s. so much so, my muffler literately exploded like a dive bottle in a fireplace, then continued driving thowing massive exploding flames out the mangled metal. pulled up on the dunes and cranked out the gas cooker for some dinner then headed home. And of course what do you do when your muffler explodes? Go through a tunnel https://youtu.be/o63FcbIIBvc https://youtu.be/eD4YRBY7ulk

    Hit the beach on Friday night, definitely a big difference with the alloy tray. Lack of traction in the rear is very noticeable but can make it up more dunes now so long as I get my gear selection right and carry momentum. went to the scrappy on Saturday and put it on the scales. Dropped 110kg with the new tray so happy with that! maybe replace the front bump with an alloy one will help shift the weight back onto the rear.

    Clutch is sorted. I’ll pick up a release bearing and slave so I can start booting the spare box to it to test it. still needs skimming and balancing so if anyone has recommendations for that it would be much appreciated made more progress on the tray. One of our fab guys is going to weld in the supports for me. Need to make new tail light hoops to suit the slimmed down tray

    Just sitting on there atm witch is why it doesn’t look level. Can probably refab to falcon mounts. fit and wire lights and we’re go! tail gate and sides are so light I can easily wave them around with one hand. Sits a bit high but the deck rails are sitting on the chassis rails. I’ll mount it up, maybe keep and eye out for some scrap alloy lengths of C channel that’s not as tall now I just need to get a proper tow bar setup and it won’t look so half ass farm truck haha maybe proper step too

    Progress. Picked up all new stainless fastnings for anything it unbolting/replacing, unfortunitly some are to short so I’ll haft to wait till I get some more but happy with how it’s going. measuring up and doing mounts to the rails will be more of a mission it’s looking. see how we go. Maybe make spacers and cut and tack plate?? Open to options or ideas on how to do it

    Stocked! Found an alloy tray for a good deal. She’s far to big, being off a 05 single cab falcon it’s far to long and hangs over a fair bit each side. fortunitly, it’s all bolts a riveted together so should be a piece of piss to get to mod. The entire thing aside from the chassis mounts is alloy, me and mate could lift it easily. So cutting 800 or so off the front and 150 off each side i should be able to lift it by my self without the tail gate and sides on. finally get rid of that water logged angle iron mess on the back! And being lighter save on gas too
