Fremantle to Valla 2022

Post by griffin »

so gearing up to drive our 11 window to Valla along with Mark (Spriggo) Spriggs in his 11 in July
Fitted some nice 175/80/15 Dunlop Grandtrek tyres to increase rolling diameter and hopefully speed up the trip, bugger to fit had to use a ratchet strap to compress the tyre and get them into the wheel arches..

yes yes will have something though not a lot of stock to sell, more likely some silver weld through panels, buttys bits and some aircooeld accessories gear to show off and will likely do a free freight promo for the weekend for any orders. Too hard to bring too much and will be away for a while as going to Old Bar and reVolks too (winter cruise if I can get away with being away)

Accom booked at the Valla caravan park (was at showgrounds but...)
