More new wheels. Found a set of Koya Drift Tek's, 18x9.5" +24 all round with Nankang NS2R semi slicks in 235/48/18. Took a bit to make the guards work, especially on the drivers side but wrapped with how they finally look and drive.



Took it camping too.

Nothing really exciting. Installed a Duspeed OTR, managed to do it without removing the condensor bracket by making new mounts and rolling the radiator back slightly. This required additional trimming of the rad shroud but I'm happy with it and it all came up fairly nicely. Nothing really new, its still a weekender for now but in around 3 weeks it will become my daily once again.

Cheers mate, was probably putrid too as that was the mud rain day too. For whatever reason is the wheels look so much better in person than in photos. Not sure why but oh well.

Blacks rims tend to loose their punch in pics.....irrespective of the rim design.

So took it away camping over the long weekend. Really needs some new shocks, also way too much weight for it at the current height but anyway. And yes that's a jetski in the tray in the second photo too. Also a few random other shots of recent times.



Bed setup on NYE


Freshly waxed



Random old photo, this was early 2018 some time back when I had the turbo taxi too.

Finally got round to painting the mesh in the front. Looks a bit better now.



Was running the start line at Round 1 of the Vicdrift Championship over the weekend, looked kinda cool parked on the Thunder Dome.

Went down to the local Holden dealer to get a photo of the Maloo under one of the HSV service signs. Unfortunately the sign was already taken down. So would like to find another dealer locally so I can get that shot before all the signs disappear for good. Anyway, a couple of photos.

Now that's a great idea.
Might have to go see if ( the 1 and only= that I know of) near me still has any signs still up and get a photo with my vs maloo.
