    G'Day from another Aussie. Just a warning and if you have been lurking no one on this forum likes rats of any kind.

    thanks simon as stated only call it that because of the amount of rat nests in it when I got it....but will drop the term to suit the site...no problem ( I don't like rats either)
    cheers joe

    Joe, I've had Rat issues here as well (mostly with the daily driver as the engine is often a warm place) and I hear others about the place have the same problem due to the cold weather. Disinfectant in a spray bottle on the engine works well but mix it with something like eucalyptus about 50 / 50 mix. I have heard of new cars being total write offs with the wire loom being eaten.
     

  5. Welcome! Good to have you here.
