Spent several thousands in Adelaide getting it ready for trip, including new springs and shocks, servicing, front driveshaft unijoints, inner tie rod ends, etc etc etc

Then 244 made it from Adelaide to Perth without any major problems.

.We spent a day with Robyn at OKA Kalgoorlie/Coolgardie. He gave it a service and we changed all the filters etc. Just prior to leaving he suggested we check the front wheel bearings. Sure enought the grease had gone off and lucky there was no damage to the bearings. So both front spigots where removed, cleaned and regreased. Robyn suggested they should be done every 50k kms and that he has several fail damaging the spigot.

Then drove 244 to OKA Factory, where I discovered the leaking master cylinder was shot, Luckily I am putting a new roof on, it would have been a bugger to get out without removing window,

I pullled the doors,roof apart and removed front windscreen,

Now it sits at OKA to get several things done, some include,

New front inner door skins and scissor lift for windows
New one piece roof
New windscreen
Second hand master brake cylinder
New freewheeling hub steps
NT Aircleaner and snorkel, including all new panels to suit.
New larger shackle pins.

Might be some more mods getting done, depening on funds and time.
