It's time to put some build logs up about my car but first a little story of how I got to this point.
Before now I've always owned sedans and figured there was no point owning a 4wd; firstly because I lived in suburban SA and second because I felt it was better to use other peoples 4wd's rather than my own. Although I always owned sedans it didn't stop me from 'modifying' them to be like a 4wd. My first car, a 2000 Daewoo Nubira had 6 driving lights, rear drawer and a 1.6m UHF antenna fitted (along with the 12inch subwoofer that I thought all the girls would fall in love with). Since moving up to the NT just over a year ago for my first big time job I saw more and more need for a 4wd. For those of you that have driven around Katherine at dusk you'll know why a sedan isn't the best idea.
It was after doing 1600km in one day by myself from Yulara to Katherine for work that I decided I needed to buy a 4wd so whilst in Darwin for the next 3 weeks I searched for a car (I live in Alice Springs so it was a strange idea to buy a car whilst away). I looked at all these dealers in Darwin but this one car in Alice springs kept popping up and I kept dismissing it. Finally it hit me, I had to get it, there was no better deal out there than the one in Alice. After some favours from mates to look at the car and a trip to the bank I was now the proud owner of my first ever 4wd.... from 1600km away. I tell you what, best thing ever to come home to sitting in the driveway.
I bought the car with 95k on the clock and with a small list of mods that included ARB deluxe winch bar and roof rack, Lightforce XGT spot lights and some Cooper AT3's with 70% tread left.
