Afternoon everyone
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:07:56 PM »
 Hi everyone,
 have been the very proud owner of FFR 49 668 for the last couple of weeks. Been slowly fettling her since. Went over the pits yesterday without a hitch, licensed this morning, happy days  ;D

Hi over there and welcome.
Is that Burns Beach?
I see a rear step fitted from the airlift on the driver side over to the one on the passenger side? Maybe... more pics please :)

Hi Karlyb and welcome to the REMLR Forum.  Did you have to do much work on the Perentie to get registration ?

Thanks for the welcome. I removed the aerial mounts, tool holders, disguised the airlift brackets (with aluminium plate), installed locks and keyed ignition, padded the rops and generally tidied her up. She had one oil leak from rear diff filler that just needed tightening up. I did all this before the inspection and she sailed through. The only thing I forgot about was getting her weighed, so off for a weigh-in we merrily went, returned with said weigh ticket and all good. Should have reduced her weight before hand but clean forgot.
No complaints, think she is a keeper. First time Perentie owner although have had 2 Lightweights, a 109 and a 90 in the UK, have been Landy less since we arrived here in Australia 10 years ago.
But the Landy bugs` bitten again. ;D ;D ;D

Hi Carzee, certainly is Burns Beach, and it is a kind of step, just for the purpose of getting through the inspection, didnt want the hassle of re test so just knocked some alli checkerplate and angle together, same with the removal of aerial mounts and tool holders, just for the inspection. ;).
