    Panel beater for small jobs ?

    Anyone know of a panel beater who may be willing to do a very small job, western 'burbs area ?

    No dents or paint damage but resting my guard against Pete's Simex rubber for a while skewed a few things just enough to be annoying.

    Give Jarrad a call on 0406 416 001 - located at Prestons

    He is a member who helped Dave and I build our LJ's but he hasn't been active for a long time, but hopefully he will eventually get his Zook registered and on the road (and then a track) soon.
    Was our Around-Oz trip really over 12 months ago???? The grass is greener on the other side......

    That'll learn you! Shouldn't be crash tackling bigger cars!! I'm just amazed it stayed there after being run into twice....I must've remembered the hand brake this time.

    My car setup trails my experience one step at a time. Next trip I'll have brush and Simex bars up... : )

    Yep, 29x7.5 in 15's & 16's.

    There used to be a bloke in the club that ran them on a Vit about a decade or so ago. Had to look twice the first time I saw them.

    I've just checked out those Simex sizes. Very interesting. They're even narrower than the stock tyre which is 205. I like pizza cutters on the Jimny. And, by tyre calculator, they're slightly taller than what's available in tall and skinny in 15 or 16". They'd make an excellent "special occasion" tyre.

    Do you have a favourite seller so I can get a price ?

    lol, I like them, on my 3rd set across 3 vehicles.

    For purchasing, Dynamic don't sell direct to public so you usually have to order them through a local tyre shop. Last one's I bought through prior employment then had a PITA of a time finding someone good enough to balance them. I'd imagine you'll have a lot less issues getting 29's balanced than 35's.

    They're on eBay for $235 so that's an indication of what you might pay, maybe $250 fitted & balanced depending where you go. From memory Jon Driscol paid about $275 - $300 or so for 2 x 32's last year from somewhere on the northern beaches. Can find out where if you like?
