It was on one of those fantastic Khutse Trips, organised by Keith Richardson, that a few LC fanatics sitting around a table  :meeting: in the middle of the bush, enjoying their icecold G+T and discussing an itch that someone had, which was very infectious to all of us, namely importing a 40 from Aussie.  ???

Not long thereafter the itch materialised into reality and a scratch was not necessary to release the itch but rather the purchasing of 6 x 40's!  :drinks: Three in one container.  :whew:

My 40 on the rollback with Jean's in tow on the way to the docks. Egbert's came from a differnt location to fill one container! This was March 2007.


4 Months later in my Garage. July 2007. The clearance and police inspection did cost us some time and extra money!  :'(

With the lift I also fitted wheel spacer to give the 4" additional height a bit more stability and gave the 40 a more beefy look !  ;D

Disassembly started in March 2008!  :'( A few pics around the major rust spots. In hindsight I was actually very lucky, as all was repairable.  :drinks:
