    @Chris.QCR The anatori is river 1.. and the camp site is right at it. No worries bra.. run a normal road maggot van threw it. There are several others after it. They change all the time. Far more dramas with them.

    The rivers are painful 4x4's get stuck on rocks. The bits where you cross the rivers changes all the time.. It's true quad bike country. They go ok.. but even then you have to float them over some bits. Big days turn into epics in that country.

    I guess if this event does not fly and nats 2019 is full cooked. Then where lies the future of OS? I'm not saying I don't get the growing up thing either. X2 kids and responsibilities right here. But shit..... it needs to go one steep deeper than a internet forum.

    @Chris.QCR Do you have access to work to do all your builds?
  8. Wow ok real banging heads stuff. looks like a lot of that could be just supplying the data. Would not surprise me if there is a program that they punch it into and out spits go, no go based on measurement given. ?
  9. Is the design approval a knights of the round table discussion? Where by all the LVV guys all get together and decide if they are happy with the idea placed in front of them ?

    PAINT THREAD

    I see POR15 being slagged all over the net they reckon it was good now they have changed it too much and it's not as good.... I bit the hook and decided to use PA10 (international paints) is it same bum different undies kinda thing ?

    POR15 full of shit!

    I think a lot of it is down to the concentration of the converter. Most of the DIY super cheap stuff is 50 % phosphoric. Don't rate it. media blasting is the go.. But I have been using a higher strength phosphoric and a buffing wheel on rotation. eventually you get there. Then straight on when its dry with my be loved PA10 I have no idea on panel steel but this is chassis.

    POR15 full of shit!

    Just been threw the whole por15 thing. just did my datto rails & K frame and spent a lot of time looking at the right thing to use ended up with PA10 (international) though the mix is not as good as it use to be apparently you know back in the old days.. you don't paint it on rust if you can help it. It's only as good as the prep work. It has slight acid content this aids the etching into the steel to hold it I don't think it's a rust kill per say.
