The blast goes right down in the seam but the powder doesn't so it stays nude I reckon.

The trip was awesome thanks. No emissions testing here. We have 1 tenth of your amount of people in the same space. The time will come though. What we do have though is "fob in a smokey car" where you can call a number when you see a smokey POC and they'll get a visit from the authorities. That's cool.

Holy cow I've put on weight! Yesterday post-movement I was only 88. I knew it would be a mistake saying I had a Vespa :face palm:

Look at the first sentence of this article. Sheesh!

So I'm close to pushing the button on a CJ10. Not quite the FSJ truck I'd like but it will help me get there and should be a lot of fun. My question is did these come out with a diesel from the factory or is it only an Australian option? Current owner says it's how it came new. Nissan diesel presumably 4.2L no turbo. Has a few little problems but nothing I can't fix. Interested in your input good Sirs.

Edit: disregard, I found out they came out with a 3.3L.

Been doing a little research on these vehicles and I think it will work out ok.
Straight up I'll need a fuel tank (got thrown out for some reason), kits for clutch and brake master cylinder and a few other things.
Wifey said "no" if it wasn't registered, it's not so I guess have a small battle ahead of me.
Has been used for roo shooting so there's a hole in the roof where the spotlight was (they put a hole in the roof and have a handle straight to the spotty for moving it around).
Has a big steel tray and drop sides so it will be a good work truck/bench.
Wish me luck on picking it up tomorrow. 3 hour drive there and hopefully no nasty surprises when I get there.
The only picture I have so far:

Different CJ10. Tugs were CJ10A, the CJ10's that were exported were trucks.

Gazzo's CJ10 truck

Well it turned out to be a pretty sweet CJ even though it's not a particularly good looking one. I'm going to start a thread so if you're interested head over to that. It will be titled the same as this post. See you there.
