Bonnet catch loop had worn 3/4 of the way through due to the thousands of corrugated kilometers this poor thing has done so i welded it up and dremelled it back into shape ... no shaking bonnet now :)

I had to remove the Rear Suspension Tower Brace that I made up earlier when I fitted the canopy so I did one the same as I did on the comp truck ... it has stood up well so we'll see how this goes on a tourer.

Pulled the water tank out again, couldn't see anything but the tank has to be in place to test it ... I changed the inlet hose clamp for a smaller one to get a better grip on the barbs then cut a section of carpet out and siliconed it down, I then made a "Dam" so that if it leaks again it will just drip out the drain hole and not soak the whole carpet again !

it leaked so had to pull it out again

had some alloy checkerplate with a curve in it that I failed to straighten even when I tried jacking the Ute up on it so I cut the bent bit off and smoothed the edges to make a jacking plate for soft ground, it can fit under my swag for storage.

Found a good Bighorn on an Alloy Rim in the shed so I removed it and fitted it to another Toyota Chromie as the second spare so all Rims and Tyres are the same.

What is the OD of the leaky hose, Shane? Try a small t-bolt clamp if you can find one that fits. EFI clamps are basically the same as t-bolts, so they could be an option too. Much betterer clamping than the worm drive style clamps.

its pretty hard to see but i suspected it was around the fitting so i pulled it out again last night ... cleaned everything up and left it to dry.
this morning i siliconed the thread and put it back together but i'll leave it for a few days to harden up before testing it

Where does that run Shane? From the driver's seat to the inlet manifold for some extra poke :lol:?
