Daytrip Saturday 21-4-12 Shed Party Ivana Flexalot
« on: 22 April, 2012, 04:17:22 PM »
Once again to the Beachshack and Annex for another bash at Ivana

Present
BigBaz, Beachbums, Howezit and ET who was brought to our play date by Marge who had a chat with us all and a look at the car before getting herself out of harms way and leaving ET to play with us.

Amidst much discussion work progressed on Ivana work commenced with pulling out the starter motor to give it some more love. It is definitely a sook as it only wanted to see fresh air and have a spray of silicon and it works again.

Further securing of the drivers seat, it was deemed that 2 bolts maybe insufficient for it to safely hold in place when the more portly amongst us were at the wheel.

Finally for the day the navigator/winch monkey seat brackets were fabricated and installed along with the seat. Installation and use of available fittings and fasteners throughout the day is a testament to the agriculture ingenuity amongst us (Stop shaking your head ET)

Eventually rain stopped play conveniently at beer "o" clock and then it time to get her back down the back paddock time. For those who have been there you know it's a tight squeeze but after jamming my buttocks into the seat (I think that was just tighter than the gap between the shed and the fence) I managed to get it down there without a scrape. Actually felt pretty good having a drive adds to the excitement as we get her ready for action.

Beachy is still twitching to take the grinder to the old girl and hopefully next session we can start work on the suspension.

Good afternoon we got something done and cheers for the beers beachy, roll on next time.

Looking forward to the next working bee I must admit. Supervising takes a lot out of a bloke but hey someone has to do it.

Learnt a few things tho... Baz and Bunnings on a Sat arvo don't mix, "Knuckles Mcgarrity" swings a mean spanner and NEVER get between Beachy and an Angle Grinder. Very reminiscent of Selfy with a Chainsaw actually  :D 

Note to self... having the seen the engineering prowess and fabrication skills involved with the seat mounts remember to stand an extra few metres back when Ivana is in motion  :o
...

If it's Tourist Season why is it illegal to shoot 'em?.

"3 Tits... Awesome"

The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

I'm not having a second childhood, I'm stuck in my first one.

I think me and you will be okay on those seats ET it's those of a meaner build who may not have as much assistance from gravity as you and I who may have to double check their harness is tight.  ;D

... got plenty of cut off discs?

Apparently Beachy has put on an Entry Fee of 1 box per attendee. Something to do with cage and folding windscreen mods
