Some Parts On Order

The time is nearing for some maintenance jobs that are due. I put an order through for a few parts that I believe need attention. Below is the list.

Power Steering Filter
Transmission Drain Plug
Fuel Filter
Transmission Drain Plug Seal
Oil Drain Plug Seal 
Valve Cover Gasket Set
Air Filter
Engine Oil Drain Plug 
Windshield Washer Nozzle
Hydraulic Suspension Filter
Transmission Pan Gasket
SLS Filter Seal Ring
Brake Pad Sensor
Front Grille Screen
Front Centre Grille Moulding - Vertical
Front Right  Grille Moulding - Horizontal
Front Left Grille Moulding - Horizontal
Windshield Washer Reservoir Cap

There will be consumables that need to be added to the list like power steering fluid, SLS hydraulic fluid and transmission fluid, but those will be purchased locally and not online like the rest of the parts.

More to come when the parts arrive!

Putty fun for grown ups!

Not much has been happening lately with George. Over the Christmas break, we headed north to Birubi Beach, Anna Bay to see some friends and we drove home taking the long way through Yengo National Park along Putty Road. I hadn't driven here before and I'm so glad I did. Man, what a drive!

As this trip was over the long weekend, I stuck to the speed limits, as I always do :), because there was a double demerit penalty for all speeding offences. Even at speeds within the limits, Putty road is a fun drive for the driver without upsetting SWMBO in the passenger seat.

I also managed to change the gas strut for the hood which is a quick 2 minute maintenance job.
