Jerry Can holders x 2 fitted to car trailer

For Christmas i received a lockable Jerry can holder and during the week i picked up another one so thought i would put them on today.
Here is the finished product

I had to make up some custom brackets to get them to fit,

Car Positioning Jacks - GoJack

Well super cheap had 20% off and i have been eyeing off these bad boys for a while, looking on the net most are $300ea and SCA have them for $187ea but with the 20% off it comes in under $150ea so i could just not resist grabing a set.

Think i will grab another two latter as it is a bit of money to spend but they come in massive boxes and you can see they are well packed,

Changed Front Brake Pads

I knew they were close to needing changing but this afternoon i could hear the tell tale noise coming from the front passenger side wheel.
It sounded like you have something metal stuck in your tyre and as you drive along you can hear it, anyway pulled out the pads and sure enough they were down to the backing section

Driveway 1 - Splitter Frame 0

Went for a little drive this afternoon which was a lot of fun and after swapping cars over to try each others cars out, we get all the way home and turning into a friends house he took the angle straight on and the splitter frame underneath the car hit the concrete hard.

I didn't think it broke anything at first and didn't bother to check but when i got home and jacked the car up for a closer inspection i found it had damaged it quiet badly, here are some photos of the damage.

Here you can see marking out the top section to see what size i needed to cut out and all the angles etc.

Ducting design & installation for Intercooler and radiator - Part One

For a while i have been putting off the idea of ducting the intercooler and radiator on the car mainly because of the complexity of what is on my car.
