Building a racecar is all good until you have to take it racing for the first time. It's stressful leading up to a track day, stuff needs to be prepared with to-do lists that read “New parts to be installed, needs a new tune, major service- change all fluids, pack tools, bring fluids”. Many either forget or don’t think until a mate or the girlfriend asks “how are you going to take it there?” and it's “oh, crap, FML!” followed by a mad rush to find a car trailer and a tow vehicle.
She is a run of the mill, heavy duty, 2-tonne, double axle, braked car trailer. September 2016 saw her inaugural tow transporting Simon’s Levin to Wakefield Park Raceway, Goulburn, 2 hours south of Sydney. The old girl did a solid job transporting the Levin coupe but was in desperate need of TLC and low car friendly mods.
Issues that needed to be addressed:
Onto the makeover.
A workshop full of tools and a fridge stocked with beers equals awesome ideas! That being said, operating a power tool while drunk isn't cool so be safe kids and drink responsibly. Shout out to Stella. We're also drinking Asahi at moment cause JDM.
Since our first photo shoot with Rosamina back in October, we've been talking about a follow-up shoot. Greaser calls Sydney home and for our next shoot, we want to show off our home city.
We finally got around to hanging all of our pictures, and man what a difference. It's way more homely and inviting but the workshop lights; great for wrenching on cars, is doing nothing for the vibe, it feels way too clinical and cold. So next on the list is to set the mood with some warmer lights.
As we're getting busier we are finding less time to post. To keep the blog alive and kicking, we'll post short blogs more regularly and once a month we'll get all D&M.
