This is my previous suzuki, the one that really got me hooked on suzuki's Cool
just after i got it!

Drawers

Snorkel



Action




I went in a competition that started up down the south east, didnt get many photo's from then but got a few from the second one.
By the second one i had lockers front and rear Wink
Had a ball, the bog holes were deeper this yeah. i didnt better my placing from last year, mind you there were more purpose built cars there this year and more serious competitors. but all that didnt matter after my last run where i made it through the 2 bogholes when others were by passing them. What a rush, i was amped after that run, and my navi(dave) was so pumped up  we were yelling and hooting all the way around the track! i think i'm hooked on this stuff!




I wasnt touching the bottom here, i was floating. Seriously! The mtr's worked like paddles though.










Dry track










After doing the comp two years running, it never was run again. But i can say atleast it saved me money and from fixing rig again Laughing

A mate with a vitara, bought a front cut from overseas to upgrade to a efi 1.6.
So i bought his old 8v carby 1.6 and put that in mine.

Installed



Because i wanted to keep the car low and not install bodylift, i had a plan on what to do with the intake into the carby.







I then did a half RUF (Rear springs up front) conversion, by redrilling the rear perch not extending the front of the chassis.
Wished i had done it years ago. Rolling Eyes
Ok here is a couple of flex shots, happy with the front now. Droops alot better now. Rear needs to be softer, but i'll need to leave it as is for the trip towing the trailer.







From when the motor went in, then RUF went in it was all moving quickly for our big trip.
The trailer arrived after being made over the last month interstate.
Very happy with it, quality build and design.







I had to hurry and make the rack for the canoe, which was hard to suit a soft top.



Took the trailer for a spin loaded, took a couple of pics in the rain.
Tows well behind the sierra leave tomorrow morning

Did the trip in the suzuki sierra towing the podtrailer(which performed faultlessly:cool:)
Did a stack of 4wding, the parks are awesome down that way and the facilities are excellent in the camping grounds. CALM do an excellent job with your parks in w.a thats for sure.
The wildlife and fauna in the area are superb!
ok, i'll just throw up pics now:p oh yeah lots of pics warning!!!!!!












Even though we went and saw 50 odd whales with calves at the bight, this one topped that. not more than 15m off a rock we watched it for a very long time. awesome:D

The trip was from just south of Adelaide right across to Walpole in Western australia and back. Quite an epic trip in a sierra towing the trailer with canoe up top Cool
