It will be a shame Ryan, but then again you dont want to rush it so much that you get the wrong result.
I know another Moke in a similar situation, very close, so I dont think you'll be alone in the "Almost finished it" line.

You've done heaps in just a couple of weeks from a bare shell  8), hopefully everything else can/will just fall into place and Mark 2 will make it to Shep under his own steam  :)

Ryan

Don't rush it.....! You want a spectacular result, and will be disappointed forever more if you short change yourself now.

Now...for Shepparton....just bring Smiley! (and a large poster of progress shots of MKII!)

See you in a couple of weeks!

Ryan,

Best to  take your time.

Otherwise you make the rest of us look bad ;)

Looking good by the way. It's always more difficult to meet deadlines when you involve other people/specialists.

Cheers,

Ryan,

Just slap it together and get it there, amongst all the other Mokes who is going to notice. :)

No pressure Ryan but I do know what a dead line is like. It was only a year ago I was as in your same predicament. Well except for the hormones going through the minister for finance.

1 week left, getting a little nervous now. Haven't even started stripping motors and gearboxes yet.

As I left it tonight.




Back into the work shop straight after dropping the kids at school tomorrow.

Hopefully can get a start on motor or gearbox over the weekend.

It will happen. Won't be painted but I never wanted it painted yet, anyway.

Tick tock goes the clock.

Anyone else still building for this event?

It can be done, though your rego inspector may be a little less flexible.

Good luck if you go for it.
Cheers

Well hello everyone... Its been a while!!!

Went back through the post and well a lot has happened since the last update

1. 2 Kids

The oldest is already on the tools with Dad (how time flys)



2. New House

3. Renovation (Sort Of) Complete On Said New House

4. And some small progress on the moke



With the announcement of the SA Moke Event, its got me back in the shed to get this one finished and sorted so we can attend (finished or not im still coming!)

So What's Left To Do

Paint the dash and heater
Wheels Powdercoated
Engine to be sorted (doesn't always want to start)
Wiring to be finished
Rego

Sounds so easy... I thought that 4 years ago until i had kids... Think it will take 12 months!!!

Great to hear you have had a big shot of enthusiasm Ryan.
It’s only a short list right ?  ;D And with the extra hands you should make short work of it  :)
Cheers
