I think thats a fair price.

On Goldfields OKA Facebook there is some pictures of your new rig. I like the storage box on the engine hatch. I think this was a OKA option. I have asked Alan if they have anymore, which I dont think they do.

Good idea on the wheel bearings. The fronts have a tendenacy to get water in them, if left can destroy the spindle etc.

On my last OKA, Robin service mine and as last thing we did the bearings, luckily we did, they had water in there sometime.

It pays to check them if you do any water wading. I destroyed the bearings within a few months, I was working between Laverton and Lenora at the time, had lots of rain and was driving through muddy water etc every day. Didnt take long for them to get destroyed.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind on the bearings. The compartments on the top of the engine cover are handy, the trouble and strife loves it because she has some where to put her gear and have it readily available and not tucked away in a glovebox.

Probably also acts as an insulator for noise and heat as an added bonus.
