Hey, I'm here! I just post where the action is generally, which currently is ozfalcon. I reckon if we could get more people posting in the social and off topic threads, this forum would have a new breath of life.

Well, I been a bit quiet lately.

Nothing to report on the Outback.......... New AU injectors are working a treat, I am somewhere between 8-10L/100km, on a ute thats just clocked over 260,000km.

Real happy with that, my tuning etc paid off.

 

I decided that I would start to learn to Tattoo, mate in Holland had a shop, I used to draw a few things up for him.

I got a great score on some Micky Sharpz Machines (New and Never used), and a not so great score on a Tattoo "Pro" kit........ LOL.

 

I just been practicing drawing and doing a few tattoos on practice skins........ heres a few pics........

 

Micky Sharpz- Micro Dial Liner........

Micky Sharpz Brass Contraption Shader........

A couple of my first Tatts, forgive the lightness, the ink does not hold well in the practice skins after washing them..........

Few mistakes, but I'm getting better. Only had the gear for 2 weeks.

 

Will be moving house in the next 2 months.........again........... luckily there is a nicer house, large block and best of all....... another 6x6m shed........ hehehe.

 

Hope everyone had a safe Easter.

 

Jack.

You Can't park that Holden in MY Driveway.......................This is Ford Country.

 

 

I had my Ute raised when everybody was lowering theirs so I could drive over shit.

A Country Ute need to actually be able to get over a speed hump... or it's no good for the farm.

Well your better at drawing than I am Jack, I think I might have to stick to fixing fridges instead.

 

Xelisty,

Well Im gonna have to tell the new owners not to try that trick, I hadn't gone too crazy with the BA as I bought it on my P's, just did the springs, wheels, sound, extractors & cat back, air intake and power tune but it was the second car I owned and the first that was any good so I loved it, 12 year old car with 200,000 k's and all it needed for road worthy was 2 tyres. So it better be looked after better than the one you sold or id be a bit disappointed I reckon.

I just watched mad max fury road,well it certainly moves along quite quickly,a lot of old bits were re hashed from the first 3 movies,but overall i was impressed ,the bit i didnt like is where you get to see a mock up of the intercepter in the begining ,then nothing untill later in the film,a lot of hype in magazines and reviews were foaming at the mouth about the interceptor in this new film but you only got to see just a small bit ? That car made these films famous and i was hoping to see a bit more than was shown,i figured max was going to get the hardtop back after it was stolen from him ,now fitted with 2 supercharges and blow everybody out of the water in it !

Seppos........ always rehashing movies..... always miss the point of the original......

Well I been busy getting mates XE ready for burnout comp. Just got a few lil things to go.
Also got car trailer rewired and 5000 pound winch, battery box, tool box and all new axles fitted.
3 weeks until it hits the skid pad. Will get some test run footage up soon as she gets to test pad.

When I havent been doing that I have been practicing tattooing..... on myself.
These are my first 3 tats on skin.
Bottom is my first, Top was second and Middle was one I did a week ago.
Getting better every time.

Lol. Nah.... he was a holden driving nancy boy on meth.

Now, if he drove a Ford.......
Hahaha

Tattoo Expo this weekend in Perth.
200km there... 200km back.... and opens at like 12pm.
I'd have to drive there have a look for 2 hours then fly home to feed the dog.
$80 fuel..... $30 entry.......
Not sure if 2 hours is worth that, even though I love a good drive......

Jack.

Hi lads, does anyone know if drew442 is still a member or know his whereabouts? I was talking to him a couple of years ago about buying some parts off him and lost contact with him. Before you ask, no he hasn't taken my money and ran. I hadn't got the chance to pay him.

Well since I haven't been active in nearly 4 years lol I thought I would come on and say hi :) still have my 78 effie and I'm getting back my 85 xf soon that was the reason I joined here back in 07 sold it in 09 it's now stripped and unregoed and has no engine or gearbox lol but should still be worth getting it back in about a month hopefully. Will end up being another project. If anyone here actually remembers my escort thread I did years ago it should be fun :)
