  • The Hilux at MotorEx

    Last year was a big year for me, I really put my focus into moving forward with the PS13 project and put off any offers to take the Hilux out on track. You have to understand that track days are not the easiest things to do, from the trade stand preparations that happen a month […]

  • Red Line Oils

    My plan for this season was to enjoy what I have, get back to the track and keep everything maintained to the highest level. Although this is a one man operation I do call on help in the form of product support from time to time. These pages have opened up a lot of great […]

  • Garage Time

    It’s that one thing you cant buy, time; I have been grappling with the concept of time vs money. Some people have all the money but not the time, some have all the time but not the money. Where is the happy medium? Where is the sweet spot? I work a 40 hour week to […]

    It’s been a while since I pushed the start button on the Hilux, it’s still such a relief to me that I am able to just jump inside this, push the button and have some fun when the opportunity arises. The opportunity came about after a chat to the Geelong Revival Staff, I wanted to […]

  • Garage Tour Video – My Workspace

    Let me begin by saying this is something I have always wanted to do but never got around to it, the interactive garage walk around video has been rolling through my mind for a while now, I never like to do things by half’s and a go-pro walk around wasn’t going to cut it for […]

  • Garage spring clean

    Over and over again, the idea of making a dash ran through my mind. I decided to make it out of fibreglass and so it began, a huge mess and hours of sanding. But first I needed to make up a frame, something to allow the shape to flow. Once I had the profile sorted […]
