P&O Pacific Pearl Twin share "Ocean View" cabin 4126 Mid Ship July 2016 (Now the CMV Columbus)
 
04:31
Just a quick walk around of our cabin on the P&O Pacific Pearl in Cabin 4126 on Deck 4 mid ship, The P&O Pacific Pearl Left the P&O Australia fleet in March 2017 and entered service as the CMV Columbus in April 2017 The Cruise on the Pacific Pearl was between the 18 - 22nd July 2016 sailing from Sydney - Moreton Island - Sydney for 4 nights. It departed Sydney at 4pm Monday the 18th July arrived Moreton Island 8am Wednesday 20th July, All the Shore tours took place we then set sail again at 8pm Wednesday 20th July then arrived back in Sydney at 9am Friday the 22nd July 2016. There was Mum and Me sharing the cabin, As my Sister and me treated Mum to a 5 day Cruise to Moreton Island for her 50th Birthday and we flipped a coin on who would go with her in order to utilize the full capacity of the twin share rather then pay for the whole cabin for one person we thought screw it 2 of us can go so one of us could share the experience with Mum to fully celebrate her 50th birthday which was on the June long weekend 2016. Excuse the mess as we were in Holiday mode, As for the music I had to put a standard YouTube track over it as the usual typical YouTube copyright system was having a whinge claiming copyright for the on board in cabin ambient music that was playing when on channel 35 on the TV which is P&O's Safety video channel before departure and "Bow Cam" which is in the bridge overlooking the Bow and out to sea for the remainder of the cruise.

Grafton XPT arrive / depart Wauchope  Realtime with steam train
 
03:39
The North Bound Grafton XPT arriving / departing Wauchope on the NSW Mid North coast. The XPT arrived 7 minutes late at 1.55pm instead of the scheduled 1.48pm. The same day (22/8/15) LVR (Lachlan Valley Railway) were also doing steam shuttles between Wauchope down to Kendall or Wauchope to Telegraph point pending on which section of track was clear and they could get the signals for. It was a blast seeing a 1940's American Built Steam locomotive with 1940's Australian Built carraiges along side a 1980's built Diesel Electric both operating in 2015 at 35+ years of age on the NSW Mid North Coast. I also went on the steam train which will be uploaded in a different video.

Mitsubishi Magna (Verada Diamante) Dash cam accident footage
 
01:15
Just a quick clip from when my 2001 Mitsubishi TJ Magna Advance station wagon which had a TJ Magna VRX body kit custom fit to it and converted to 5 speed Manual with a full leather interior riding on 17 inch alloys. It was a great car and not your average station wagon, This is from the day it was written off and rear ended by a Toyota Camry which was also written off. The accident occurred on the 28th May 2014 at around 4.50pm, thankfully I wasn't shoved into the car in front hard enough to set off the Dual Front Air Bags. Excuse the language during impact as it's a typical Aussie response. the At Fault Driver who hit me accepted liability as they were lighting a cigarette at the time of impact, They said they were doing roughly 50 - 60kp/h upon impact. I had a safe distance between me and the car in front as I could see the tyres touching the road, It's just the dash cam that makes it appear I'm closer then I am due to the 160 degree fish eye type lense that dash cam had on it. My car was subsequently declared a 'Statutory Write off" which instantly meant the registration was cancelled and the car deemed for "use as parts only" due to the tow bar taking the bulk of the hit and bending like a banana and snapping all 6 of the retaining bolts pulling the chassis rails in and the tongue piercing the spare tyre well. The At Fault driver accepted full responsibility and ended up with just over a $30,000 insurance bill.

1971 home made trailer rebuild with Toyota Hilux tub: Part 5 Road worthy ready for rego.
 
08:26
In this 5th and final part of the trailer rebuild, The trailer undergoes it's "Blue Slip" which is a road worthy certificate and identity check. Essentially it just says the trailer is roadworthy and it's what the VIN number and identification states it is. The trailer passed with a small amount of hassle as initially the mechanics just stated it needed reflectors which was a small detail I had over looked which were simple at $10 for the 4. It also needed the left hub tightened as there was more then 3mm play at the top of the tyre, So all they said was required was tighten the castellated nut on the hub drop a new split pin in and it'll pass. So I do the required minor things which took less then half an hour and took it back for it's 2nd clearance inspection, Upon doing so the Mechanics then claimed they told me the bearings were screwed and it was clearly listed on the form the 2 items needed were reflectors and new bearings. As seen in the video it does not state any thing about Bearings only reflectors and "Suspension free play at rim" which they then explained was the castellated nut just needing another 1/4 turn and a new split pin. I took it home put new bearings in it and a bit of extra work trying to out smart the mechanics and following VSB1 building small trailers under 4.5 tonne which is found at this link https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/vsb1/ (Australia only) Upon doing that I then took the trailer down again this morning being the 6/2/16 (that's the 6th Feburary 2016 not the 2nd June 2016) I had everything done as required and the mechanic still failed it on the basis of "Noisy bearings" end result the RMS rang them blasted them and I got the blue slip, As the RMS said you can not keep adding repairs after you have submitted the initial blue slip to us online and given the customer the hard copy. So they got in the dirts from the NSW registration mob and it looks like they will now be investigated to see what other vehicles and trailers they've stated to do additional repairs on or overlooked roadworthy items on. So other then that the total cost of the trailer for all parts and registration fees the total cost was was $601.75, All inclusive of everything required and upgrades like the tyres. If it wasn't for the bearings and extra stuff required for blue slip that the mechanics kept adding it would have been around $450 all done and dusted. I hope this series has helped some one some where and shown that it is easier then it looks. I am no means a mechanic or a professional, I did this in my home garage with a basic tool kit that consisted of an Angle grinder, electric drill and bit's, Socket set and a hammer and rubber mallet. If you take your time and do your research for your local regulations as I had to follow the federal Australian Design regulations for the basic overall trailer which was VSB1, Then do the specifics for NSW registration which is it's "Home state" where it's "Registered owner operator" lives and as per the regulations if the owner moves to say Queensland or Victoria the New South Wales registration will have to be transferred to Queensland or Victorian registration and comply to that states regulations for registration prior to rego expiry or within 3 months which ever occurs first. This project took me 5 weeks in total from the 30th of December 2015 to the 6th Feburary 2016 from clapped out trailer to blue slipped legal ready for rego. I mainly did it an hour here or an hour there and wasn't overly pushing my self to do it. So any home handy person can do it with a basic tool kit. As a result this now 45 year old trailer that was ready for the scrap heap will now see at least another 5 10 maybe 20 more years of life.

Mitsubishi Magna Wagon custom built trailer (Verada, Diamante)
 
07:45
This is my 1994 Mitsubishi TR Magna "SE" spec Station wagon that I built and customised into an enclosed trailer. It's complianced as a june 2010 Trailer here in NSW Australia, Everything from the B pillars back is stock standard. The only non factory items are the draw bar, front skin and 7 core wiring harness. I built it in early 2010 as one of those random projects that I thought I'd never complete, 5 years later after use and abuse and yes it is fully registered and road legal in NSW Australia. It's receiving a full overhaul to take it from a standard general purpose trailer to turn it into a Camper trailer. It's mid way through the full resto, all the wiring is brand new, The interior is good condition used parts, The doors and tail gate are dent free 2nd hand units. It's just a matter of finishing off the front and rest of the body before it can be repainted and the roof racks re powder coated. I love this beast and the attention it brings, I can be parked some where and people come up and ask about it and say it's cool and a good idea and take photo's. I've also had on occasion people honk their horns in traffic pull up along side me and say it's cool and offer to buy it. I am not going to sell this particular one but I am willing to build them for people out of what ever car they want at cost if you supply the parts required or supply plans to do so, In order for you to be able to go to any AUSVIS station that does Blue Slips in NSW to have it blue slipped and complianced ready for rego. Any questions or comments please put them in the comments below. If your going to do nothing but bag it out don't bother commenting, As at currant I've made one other trailer similar except out of a 1983 Honda City 3 door hatch back which is half the size.

2002 Holden VX Calais Project
 
10:22
Project scrapped and the Calais was inevitably sent to the wreckers, As the insurance company stated it was a repairable economic write off. But entered it onto the WOVR register as a "Statutory Write off" meaning it was unable to ever be re registered ever again in Australia and was suitable for parts only. So as it sits in this video is 2 days prior to the NSW Registration being cancelled and it listed on WOVR (Written of Vehicle Register) Although it went to be parted out the leather interior ultimately ended up in a VX SS Commodore, I was given it so ended up selling it for Scrap metal value of $300.

Mitsuibishi Magna (Verada Diamante) Dash Cam footage with after accident photo's (Long version)
 
02:08
The Footage off my dash cam from when my car was rear ended in May 2014, the At fault driver who rear ended me accepted full responsibility and ended up with just over a $30,000 insurance bill. My car was listed as a "Statutory write off" meaning it can never be reregistered and driven in Australia and can only be used for parts / scrap. The Grandis in front that I was shoved into needed a new rear bumper, Paint and a tow bar (as the tongue bent as my radiator support hit it in line with the chassis rail) My 2001 Mitsubishi TJ Magna Advance copped the bulk of the damage to the rear as seen in the pictures at the end, It was written off due to the damage of the towbar snapping the bolts, bending like a Banana pulling and twisting the chassis rails rear of the rear axle inwards and the tongue of the tow bar punching through the spare tyre well and bending the rear part of the exhaust. The At Fault driver and my self were with the same insurance company and they decided to give me the agreed value of $6000 rather then spend the $2200 straightening the rear portion of the chassis and putting a new bumper, tail gate and tow bar on. I'm glad they did as I would not have felt safe driving it afterwards knowing it once had a bent chassis. The At Fault drivers car was repaired and her premiums near doubled as well as copping a couple of fines including Negligent driving. The first 2 pictures are of what my car looked like just 2 days before when I had just finished the custom rear bumper making a TJ Magna VR-X Sedan rear skirt fit the Wagon bumper. I only got to enjoy having the full kit for 2 dayson the Wagon and it never got to make it to the spray shop to have it properly painted in 2K rather then acrylic touch up paint. As the whole car was going to be redone in the existing mawson white with a clear coat put over the top with some Blue pearl in it. the following pictures are of the damage and how far the tow bar was pushed in. the last 2 pictures are of my currant car to follow on with the wagons legacy and look except in the form of a 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi top of the range with the Wagons body kit custom fit to the larger front and rear bumpers, the side skirts went straight on (as the Magna and Verada are the same platform the Magna is the lower spec where the Verada is the luxury spec) the first pic is how it started the 2nd is how it currently sits. The original short 1:14 video only clip is also available to view.

P&O Pacific Explorer triple share interior cabin tour, Cabin 9061 Deck 9 forward starboard side.
 
04:22
Just a quick walk through of cabin 9061 interior triple share on the P&O Pacific Explorer in December 2017 on the Christmas Cruise. The cabin was was Forward on the Starboard side next to a through fare, It was a nice quiet location when the kids from another cabin weren’t thumping around at all hours and the parents did absolutely nothing about them even when people were trying to sleep at 2am. Excuse the Mess as it was the first night of embarkation and after travelling overnight we were stuffed and just crashed. Filmed on my iPhone 7 Plus. Music: Across the Ocean by JR Tundra, YouTube Free Music Library *Just a Quick note about one of my Videos from the trip* I also have the footage from White Bay Cruise Terminal sailing under the Harbour bridge for the sail away party. But after uploading it and receiving 2x copyright notices for 2 songs, Appealling the copyright claims as I stated I do not own the music which was being used under fair use in Sydney Australia on a London England Registered Ship and since we were sailing under our own power we were under "Maritime Law" and P&O crew stated to get cameras out photograph and record and to Instagram it so there was a Verbal "It's OK to film despite the music in the background" since how P&O would have the respective licensing to use the music they do in a public domain on a cruise ship operated for Profit. They also stated when it was and was not ok to film due to international copyright laws this instance they said it was OK. Both songs were credited to their respective artists and studio's being Mark Ronsons Uptown Funk and Tina Turner's "Nutbush CIty limits". Youtube and the "Copyright claiments" denied the appeal of "Fair use and Monetised my content for their profit despite me not monetising it in the first place upon uploading knowing it had third party music in it I put it up just for people to see and experience it and know what to expect when sailing out of White Bay Cruise Terminal Sydney Australia, So I removed that footage from Youtube and sent a further email stating they do not have my permission to monetise my Video and they are in breach of Copyright laws by monetising my footage that they do not own. As I was quite happy to have it up and not Monetised as it was and gave credit to the respective parties so neither party earnt anything from it, But as soon as they said they had monetised my footage I deleted it from Youtube so they could not profit from my footage on footage that was uploaded and never originally monetised unlike my other footage. As having done my Certificate 4 in Digital Media I'm familiar with Copyright laws so I know what I can and can not monetise, The only downside lacking to the quality of my clips and why I am going with the "Raw" uploads is because my home Computer isnt quite powerfull enough to run the programs I prefer to use for editing and takes forever to render. As when you end up with some video's in excess of 10gb in 1080p 60fps or even 4k to edit and compress that down to a bite sized portion of under 500mb for Youtube without losing any quality takes a lot of computing power and a i5 4gb ram machine goes OH HELL NO!!! even my 6 month old i7 with 16gb ram has the odd OH CRAP!!! moment.

Mitsubishi Verada and Mitsubishi Magna custom Trailer (Diamante)
 
06:02
UPDATE as at September 2017: The body kit and plastidip has been off the car for over 12 months and only the spoiler and mags remain, The front of the trailer has been reskinned with a more aerodynamic front and I am in the process of making it 100% and filming dribs and drabs for an update which I'll hopefully compile by years end. The windows of the trailer have also been tinted with opaque privacy tint allowing in at least 95%+ of the natural light but prevents pearing eyes. If anyone between Sydney NSW and Brisbane QLD has a 1991 - 1996 Mitsubishi TR TS Magna or KR KS Verada Wagon that you want to get rid of I will be happy to come and pay you for it and strip it for parts then and there or if it is still drivable I will be willing to give a resonable price for it and get an unregistered Vehicle permit to drive it away. That way I can stock pile parts for it as the 1991 - 1996 TR TS Magna KR KS Verada Wagons are starting to get harder to find and I'd love to get the complete rear brake system off one in order to put onto this one and custom fit the brake lines and throw on a Hydraulic overider coupler so the trailer has brakes as at 400kg empty in the wet under hard braking the car isnt exactly happy and the ABS has trouble keeping up it does just but I'd rather have that extra braking capacity and independent system on the trailer. Back to Normal Broadcasting below: A better look at my daily driver which is a 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi with the TJ Magna VRX body kit custom fit to the Verada's larger bumpers which included widening the front skirt by 8cm in the centre and 8cm in length on the rear side pods. I also added a 2nd exhaust port for the eventual install of a dual exhaust system. Both Bumpers just need another coat or 2 of fibreglass to finish the bulk of it before they can be fully sanded smooth and painted properly, The bonnet will also be repainted as at currant it has Plasti-dip on it due to the typical clear coat peel from this era. Also in this clip is my custom built trailer Made out of a 1994 Mitsubishi TR Magna and a quick walk around of both. From the Back of the trailer to the front facia is 2.6 metres and the total length is 3.8 metres, I don't know what that is in "imperial" as some of us use the Metric system. As its easier since the whole of Australia uses it (and it makes it hard for the one family member of mine who still insist on using the imperial system in a country that uses the metric system) Total length of the car and trailer combined is 8.5 metres which is 1 metre longer then a standard Toyota Coaster 21 seater mini bus.

5917 Steam train shuttles Wauchope NSW, Lachlan Valley Railway LVR
 
19:01
On the weekend inclusive of Friday the 21st through Monday the 24th August 2015 Lachlan Valley Railway were doing steam train shuttles from Wauchope on the NSW Mid North Coast roughly 4.5 hours or 400km north of Sydney Australia The Shuttles were running from Wauchope to Kendall 30km south or out to Telegraph Point 30km North on the "North Coast Rail" Main line which is all standard gauge single track apart from the odd dual track area, It all depended which way they could get the clear signal for out of Wauchope as it wasn't a "Regular listed passenger service" like the XPT or Freight. So it had to fit in between the listed regular train timetable. This is a bulk lot of clips thrown together combining the down and up run from Wauchope to Kendal return, The down run the Loco 5917 went tender first and was restricted to 40kp/h. Upon the return trip it was able to do line speed of 85 - 100kp/h as it was going nose first. As seen there is some tight bends which is why freight trains and the Australian XPT (loosely based on the British HST but heavily modified for Australian tracks and conditions) are limited to 140kp/h rather then the 200kp/h cruising speed they were designed for. But with scenery like that all is soon forgotten about the speed and you just sit back relax and enjoy the view. Also excuse the wind noise there wasn't much I could do, I even taped a cotton ball over my camera's mic but it didn't do much to dampen the wind. This isn't the full trip as I filled up a 64gb SD card with full 1080p HD and didn't take a spare as I thought 64gb would be enough for 45 minutes of footage......... Obviously not Also sorry about a couple of the clips the Youtube stabiliser obviously doesn't like them (even though it was all one clip when uploaded)

Australian Cruise Tips and Tricks, For Domestic and international Cruises on P&O Australia.
 
43:47
Shorter better videos to come, As I'm still learning as I go in the way of editing and video shooting. This is one of my longer Videos soley aimed at tips and tricks for Cruising in Australia with P&O Australia, I've also included a few tips and tricks on what I do for packing and in preperation for a cruise. Apologies up front as I had a "Humbug" hard lolly in my mouth while talking at the start and didnt realise my new mic was sensitive enough to pick it up. A few note worthy tips are - If it's a family trip and you have room Set up a "Cruise Control" section, For me it's in my spare room with a white board and pin board with all details etc. For you it may be as simple as white board markers on the fridge and magnets. - While organising to pack get a different colour for each person, So in my instance I used Black to be applicable to all of us, Blue for me, Pink for my Sister and Green for my Mum. That way we all know to take like passports and ID then have our specific packing lists for each person. FOr instance I may take my camera gear where my Sister may need to take her lady products so we hve a genericc list we all need then do our own individual lists then tick it off on the white board as we go or add stuff as needed. - P&O Australia us Australian Dollors and Tipping is not Mandantory, P&O Australia allow you to reward the crew for excellant service but Tipping is not Mandantory it is purely optional. In saying that they do not add a daily servioce tip charge to your on board account. - All on Board prices include the "GST" which is the Australian Goods and Services Tax, So if an item is say $34.95 on the shelf then it is $34.95 at the register as the 10% GST is included in the Price *Except where Duty Free is in place* - Cruise Cards, You can either link your Visa or Mastercard Debit or Credit card to your Cruise card for on board spending or if you prefer cash you can put cash on your card within 24 hours of embarkation at the reception and can check your account using the kiosks on board by simpley swiping your card. - Paperwork, I keep all my paperwork in an A4 display folder everything from the brochure for the sale I booked with to the receipt from booking to the eTickets to the flight, train and transfer details so it is all together in one folder and easily accessable. - P&O Australia do not allow any alcohol to be taken aboard due to the small minority who did the wrong thing ruined it for the rest of us. P&O's Alcohol Policy https://www.pocruises.com.au/faqs/things-to-know-before-you-go/can-i-bring-alcohol-onboard Now as for a few items I take include Cruise Bag Tags, They are proudly designed and made in Australia by an Australian company based in Sydney since 1959. Clear Cruise bag tags start at $2.95, Strap to hook them on your bag are $0.50, Lanyards are $1.95 and they have Cruise bag tag holders to suit most cruise lines. http://www.cruisebagtags.com/ Seagate Wireless 500gb hard drive, App is available on iOS not 100% sure about android but it allows you to wirelessly transfer files between your phone and tablet to the Hard drive using it's own inbuilt battery and WiFi Connection which you can set your own password etc to. I bought mine off eBay at the following link http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Seagate-500GB-Wireless-Mobile-Storage-Portable-Hard-Disk-Drive-Red-/152604324010?hash=item2387ed30aa:g:Ik4AAOSwa~BYVK8w DSLR Back pack http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Waterproof-SLR-DSLR-Camera-Soft-Backpack-Case-Bag-Rucksack-For-Canon-Nikon-Sony-/401344009341?epid=1292388374&hash=item5d71f7947d:g:2coAAOSwN2VZOmNF Travel cable organiser I have sewn on the front of my DSLR back pack http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Electronic-Accessories-Storage-USB-Cable-Organizer-Bag-Case-Drive-Travel-Insert-/321919641424?var=&hash=item4af3e7e750:m:mqWMDFAoOqsI6-KItvPgONw Water Hydration Back Pack (Camel Back) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Outdoor-Hiking-Cycling-Rucksack-Water-Bladder-Bag-Backpack-Hydration-Packs-NSW-/272563932538?var=&hash=item3f76138d7a:m:mVWkonquvX63sNKbFvX43pg My DSLR, Nikon D3200 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Excellent-Nikon-D3200-with-AF-S-18-55mm-f-3-5-5-6-VR-Red-1-year-warranty-/152641001334?hash=item238a1cd776:g:QXYAAOSwmNlZaAjY DSLR Mic, Cheap unit but happy with the results. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BY-VM01-Shotgun-Condenser-Microphone-3-5mm-Directional-Mic-for-DSLR-Camera-O5-/292181620379?hash=item440761b69b:g:0eoAAOSwgApXB1yJ

1971 home made trailer rebuild with Toyota Hilux tub: Series preview trailer.
 
00:38
Just a shout out, I will soon be uploading a short multiple part series about doing a resto mod on a 1971 Home made box trailer. The 5x7 foot box trailer was built by an elderly gentlemen here in NSW Australia in 1971, The Trailer was in regular use up until the annual registration expired on the 6th of November 2013 and wasn't renewed within the 3 month window to renew it without putting it over the pits (Blue slip here in NSW Australia which is a road worthy and Vehicle Identification inspection) The Trailer has since sat on a 13 acre Property since then unregistered and neglected. On Wednesday the 30th December I will be going to collect the trailer from my Cousins and the Hilux ute tub. There will be a Multiple part series of I'm not sure how many short episodes there will be yet, As I'll try to keep them between 10 and 20 minutes long. I am hoping to do at least 6 mini episodes showing from pick up to getting it re registered inclusive of the following. 1) Day of Pick up 2) Strip down 3) Rust removal and paint 4) Installation of the ute tub onto the frame 5) Wiring up the lights 6) Registration process and if it leads to it other episodes may include - Delivery to the owner - Cleaning and detailing the paint work - installing bed armour (spray on rubber coating) - Canopy search and install - Other custom hacks and tips for building custom trailers. (and yes I know it's a "Basic edit" but it's hard to do a proper edit when you have an uncooperative computer that decides to pretty much freeze every time you open the Adobe CC suite)

Port Vila Water Taxi Cruise ship to town (P&O Pacific Explorer)
 
12:25
Just a short real time video of the Port Vila Water taxi’s from the ship wharf to the main town, Filmed on the 22nd December 2017 using my iPhone 7 Plus. It cost us $5 per person in this rickety little boat with about a dozen other people with the water line literally no more then 10cm from the top rail of the boat, 1 or 2 more people would of made it interesting with how low we were in the water. Over all it was a great experience and to see the damage from a Cyclone that went through a couple of years ago (around 2015) and they just left the damaged boats where they laid after the storm to literally rust away.

1971 home made trailer rebuild with Toyota Hilux tub: Part 1 Picking up the pieces.
 
09:56
In this first part of the 1971 Home made trailer rebuild resto mod, I pick up all the main pieces in order to start the project. These parts are as follows inclusive of the prices to show how cheap and easy it can be if you just look around in your local classifieds, Either in the local newspaper or online such as "Gumtree.com.au" here in Australia which is similar to craigslist in the US. - $75 - 2012 Toyota Hilux Dual cab Ute tub - $0 FREE - unregistered home made trailer (off a family member but oldies like this can be had for less then $200) - $22 - UVP (unregistered vehicle permit) which allows me to legally tow the trailer or drive a vehicle from Point A to Point B without any registration as long as it's in a road worthy condition. Spending $22 for trailers and $26 for cars for a UVP for 24 hours. Further updates will come as I do the build and I'll also keep a running tally on cost so everyone can see how cheap and easy it can be. DISCLAIMER: I am not a qualified mechanic or motor vehicle repairer, I do these trailers / projects as a personal hobby and do the relevant research to make sure they will meet the local state / territory / Country regulations. I have made sure this trailer has been built in accordance with the Australian Design regulations "ADR's" and in accordance with the Vehicle standards bulliton 1 building small trailers under 4500kg and in accordance with NSW local regulations for registration requirements. Any info or techniques I give or use have worked for me and if you decide to use them I will not be held accountable for personal injury, Loss, Damage or legal action caused to you by following my techniques. I strongly advise you to do the research for your local area / Country before undertaking any project that will essentially require registration to be legally used on the road. My Projects will always be built in accordance with the requirments for New South Wales Australia. Over time I will endever to improve my video quality as I figure out the best techniques and lighting to see what works out the best to make decent HD Clips. I will also pursue to make more Clips of Trains, Planes, Buses, Car's, Travel as they occur.

An upcoming Merry Cruisemas (Christmas Cruise / Travel Series)
 
01:22
Join me on the 17th to the 27th December 2017, As my self, Mum and my Sister go on a 10 night Christmas Cruise on board the P&O Pacific Explorer. This will be our first family holiday together since we went to Perth Western Australia together in July 2003, We’ve travelled individually since to various places around the world. But it was well and truely time we made a trip together before Me and My Sister start our own little families and it’ll be a bit more expensive and difficult to organise with partners and kids in tow meaning 2 - 3 cabins rather then just the 1 for the 3 of us considering me and my sister are both in our early 30’s. While on board I will also be having my 31st birthday 2 days after we set sale, Then we have all our ports of call being the Isle of Pines, Lifou, Port Vila and Mystery Island then sail back to Sydney in the few days to do so it’ll be Christmas Day. It’ll literally be set sail the 17th Birthday on the 19th first Port on the 20th last Port on the 24th Christmas on the 25th and back in Sydney on the 27th December. During the trip I’ll be getting footage of - The XPT with the first class car A day sitter / sleeper car and Car B standard seated first class and possibly the Buffet Car. Most likely a time lapse from Sydney to Kendall. - P&O transfer shuttle from Central railway station Sydney to White Bay Cruise terminal. - Transfer from White Bay Cruise Terminal - Circular Quay Vila Barangaroo, The $12.50 Ticket includes the $9 WBCT - Barangaroo, Jump off that ferry stay on the same wharf and within a couple of minutes The Barangaroo to Circular Quay ferry will rock up to take you round to Circular Quay. The Barangaroo to Circular Quay leg is an additional $3.50 if booked online, We will then catch the train from Circular Quay to Central Station I opted to take that route as it will be easier with less walking for Mum who has a spinal fusion and nerve damage in her right leg so the less walking the better. Alternatively you can walk the 5 minute Wynyard Walk to Wynyard Station and pay around $3.90 for the train from Wynyard. - Cabin tour on the Pacific Explorer. - Various activities on while on board like the Christmas Carols on the top deck. - Various Shore tours and activities on the Islands Plus any other items I think may be suited worthy for upload or personal viewing, If there is anything specific you would like filmed etc while on this cruise or any of the islands please drop them in the comments below and I’ll do my best to get that footage for you.

QANTAS QF11 747-400 SYD LAX gate to take off Real time. 21st March 2017
 
19:04
First up apologies about the screaming kid, On a Long Haul or any flight there's always one screamer and a few passengers were getting a little annoyed as the parent wasn't doing anything. After takeoff one of the flight attendants gave the kid some "Entertainment" I don't know what it was but the kid was quiet for the rest of the flight until we touched down in LA. The Plane was a QANTAS Boeing 747-400 Rego VH-OJU, Flight QF11 depart Sydney 10.30am Tuesday the 21st March 2017 landed at LAX Tuesday the 21st March at 6.15am. Real time footage of QANTAS QF11 on the 21st of March 2017 taking off from Sydney, From Gate to Take off in Real time. If you want the Juicy bit for the take off it starts from 14:40 where we're just lining up for the run way. This was my first ever international flight from Sydney to Los Angeles, I spent 2 weeks in LA, Vegas and surrounds. So I'll be posting a few more videos in the coming days. Filmed using my iPhone 7 Plus, I had it pressed up against the window but for some reason it went a bit trippy and the audio was off in a few places so I do apologise for that (the joys of having a folio style cover covering the screen while recording I wasn't paying to much attention to what the phone was recording)

2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada (magna) 5 speed manual 0 - 100kph run
 
00:49
Filmed using my original GoPro Hero Motorsports edition. Just another quick run of my 2000 Mitsubishi Verada V6Xi that has been converted to a 5 speed manual over the original "INVECS II" 4 speed sports mode trip tronic auto At the start I am in an 80kp/h zone then enter the highway which is a 100kp/h zone and get up to 100kph then slow back down to 80kph at the end due to road works. The drive train fitted is the following 6G74 V6 3.5 litre 163kw (219hp) 317N-m torque (234lbf-ft) at 4500rpm Mitsubishi 5 speed Manual transmission. Kerb Weight 1510kg as a standard Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi 4 speed auto. The last Video of the Verada I uploaded I got a number of messages from the Holden and Ford fan boys stating how their beloved Fords or Holdens are "better then a Japanese piece of crap" and that it's only a "Mitsush*ty". To be honest I don't give a dam about your Holdens or Fords as I've owned both having 2x Ford Falcons(EA S Pack 5 speed manual, EL Falcon Futura Auto) and 1x Holden VX Calais and I was far from impressed with them. I'm not saying they are bad but they are just not for me, If your a true car enthusiast you respect other peoples rides regardless if you like it or not.

From Gate to take off on board QANTAS QF12 LAX - Sydney departing LA at 10.30pm Sunday the 2nd April 2017 arriving in Sydney 6.30am Tuesday the 4th April, It felt weird yet oddly satisfying totally skipping Monday mind you on the way over we gained a day on the way back we lost a day. The view and safety announcement from the "SkyCam" and screens from Gate to Taxi to Take off. The Air craft was a QANTAS A380-800 Rego VH-OQC "Paul McGinness" I was in seat 65A which was a window seat over the wing with a Bulk head behind me (and an emergency exit door behind that) Granted some say it's a "Bad seat" because I had the toilets to the right of me but the flight attendants closed the curtain and most of the passengers slept the whole flight and generally used the right asile to use the toilets. I had Seats 65B and 65C next to me free so I was able to put a blanket up between the back of my row and the row in front to create a little cocoon arm rests up to essentially create a "Budget first class" in Economy". I Had the 3 pillows and I'm not a small guy at 6 foot and 120kg but I managed to sleep comfortably across the 3 seats for 9 of the 14 hour flight (fell asleep after dinner service around 7pm Sydney time which was about midnight LA time and woke up around 4.30am Sydney time ready for breakfast service and landing in Sydney at 6.30am, Doing it that way the jetlag wasn't to bad got home felt fine and crawled into my own bed about 9pm Eastern Standard time for a full night sleep and up around 7.30am) Line up for the run way and take off occurs from the 19:00 minute mark

Tropic Thunder Jet Boat Port Vila 22 December 2017 Part 1 of 2 (P&O Pacific Explorer)
 
17:35
On the 22nd of December 2017 while on Christmas Cruise on the P&O Pacific Explorer from the 17th to the 27th December, When we docked in Port Vila I surprised my Mum and Sister with a Jet Boat Ride with the local Company "Tropic Thunder Jet" in Vanauatu. Their Facebook page is in the link below so be sure to go check them out and like and follow them and support a small business https://www.facebook.com/tropicthunderjet/ We were on the 9am group had an absolute blast even if e did have a slight mishap, As the Radiator cap popped off and the coolant started spewing out. But our skipper took it in his stride called over one of the other local boats who was doing the Snorkelling tour and went to get some coolant to continue the ride. He was gone for a good 15 - 20 minutes while we were moared in the middle of Port Vila Harbour, Yeah the boat over heated SO WHAT. the group of us couldnt of given a flying rats that we did as what a place to break down in the middle of Port Vila Harbour, So while Uri our skipper went to get more coolant we just sat there enjoying the peace and quiet and the Serenity of where we were. After Uri got back with the coolant we then continued on our way which is why this video is in 2 parts as I stopped recording then started to re record and I'm being a little lazy at currant as I just bought a new laptop so I'm transferring everything onto it (as my 6 month old Lenovo laptop didnt like its trip through the X ray machine and the Hard drive rolled its eyes went stuff you and gave up luckily after I backed everything up to an external hard drive) So this is Part 1 of 2 enjoy Part 2 is linked below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlwAxEPVDJA&t=25s

2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi (Test Video)
 
00:28
This is just a quick test clip of my 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi with the TJ Magna VRX body kit custom fit to it. I bought the Verada in June 2014 after my 2001 TJ Magna Advance wagon was written off (Rear ended) and I've been slowly customizing the parts to suit the Verada's larger bumpers. As the TJ Magna had more body hugging bumpers where the Verada are slightly longer making the Verada an overall 8cm longer then the wagon all because of the bumpers. It is still a work in progress so it is by far not perfect, I'm working on it as I can while keeping it as my daily driver. The biggest job was replacing the tired motor and 4 speed auto trip tronic auto of 301,000km for the low kay motor of 96,000km out of a 2005 KL Verada and a 5 speed manual conversion, That was completed in Feburary this year, It's still running a 6G74 3.5 litre V6 and now a 5 speed manual transmission. It's not usually dirty but the council is in the middle of fixing a main road that has dirt all over it and we've had some wet weather which turnt it to mud, That and combined with the coastal sea air living right on the beach it doesn't stay spotless for long. It's known as the Magna / Verada in Australia but abroad like the USA and New Zealand it's known as the "Diamante" The Magna was in production from 1985 - 2005. If this test works out half decent as I do modifications and stuff for it I'll probably make some tutorials as I go which can be applied to virtually any vehicle with the same concept but customised to your own specific needs.

It was an amazing cruise, Sure there are larger more expensive cruise lines but for me personally I prefer the smaller ships as I find my self more relaxed on a ship like the P&O Pacific Explorer. Where say the Ovation of the Seas I'll find it hard to unwind as it's like a huge floating apartment block shopping centre.

P&O Pacific Pearl Tangalooma island resort Moreton Island ATV Quad bike shore tour full real time
 
36:17
On board the P&O Pacific Pearl for the Moreton Island 4 night cruise, I did the ATV Quad Bike tour which was $59.99 for a 1 hour tour which included the briefing and the actual cruising around the Tangalooma island resort on Moreton Island which is the worlds 3rd largest sand island located just off the coast of Brisbane Queensland Australia. Considering it was my first time riding a motorbike in 20 years, The last and only motorbike I rode was a Pee Wee 50 when I was 9. So fast forward 20 years at the age of 29 I rode a ATV quad bike for the first time on the beach and tracks of Moreton Island, I think I did alright for my first ride in 20 years only having to ask how to get it in gear once as I was expecting to have to tap down to engage the gears but you actually had to get your foot under click it up once for 1st then 2nd 3rd 4th then reverse and push all the way down for Neutral. Personally I would have found it easier with a Heal / Toe operation having heal for up shift and toe for down shift but it was all on the one and you had to have your foot below or above the shifter toggle in order to change gears other then that it was a sweet ride. The ATV's were Honda TRX250TM's, I found them to be rather tail happy with light steering and at times on full lock even at 15 - 20kph found my self understeering so I had to give it the off kick up the back side to bring the back end around on some of the corners. I didn't bother to edit the footage it's just how it came off my GoPro in it's "RAW" state at 720p and 60fps using an old original GoPro Hero 1 motorsports edition as I wasn't overly fussed if that one went overboard or got broken compared to the Hero4. For some strange reason it did 2 files one of around 32 minutes the other of about 4 minutes so I've just pinned the 2 together to get the full adventure. I do apologise for the tyre being in the way but that's the only location I could mount the GoPro being on the front rack as they wouldn't allow me to put it up higher on the roll over bar.

1998 Toyota Camry CSI, First start after 350,000km timing belt change.
 
01:16
Just a quick start up and idle after replacing the Timing belt and service in my Mums 1998 Toyota Camry CSI with the 1MZFE V6 3.0 litre. When the timing belt was done in June 2015 the car had 352,000km on the original engine, It is still going strong doesn't use any oil, blow smoke and it still runs as smooth as can be. I generally change the timing belt on all our cars every 5 years or 100,000km which ever occurs first. I also change the oil every 5000km and the filters (oil, air, Fuel) every 10,000km or 6 months which ever occurs first. The biggest issue we've had with it was the front suspension was a little tired so both struts and springs were replaced. It goes to show if you look after the mechanicals on any vehicle they'll last. Since the timing belt was done the Camry has done a further 2500km without Fault. Before any one says "The steering wheel's on the wrong side" technically it isn't its on the "Right" not the "Wrong" side being right hand drive being in Australia where this Camry was built in the Toyota factory in Victoria.

Mitsubishi Verada (Magna) first fire on new engine (6G74 V6 3.5 no exhaust)
 
00:17
The first fire up of my 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada with a fresh low kilometre motor which is a 6G74 V6 3.5 litre. The first fire up is with NO EXHAUST, The manifolds are in place but not connected to the Y pipe. there's a little bit of ticking as it does it's thing for the first fire up and gets all the fluids circulating which went away after about 5 minutes. At the same time it was also converted from a 4 speed triptronic auto to a 5 speed manual. The old Motor had 300,998km on it and was only removed due to a suspected blown head gasket, Which was not the case it turnt out to be a faulty thermo fan only kicking into low speed. Which resulted in the temperature rising to 3/4 temp every time the car stopped or reversed. The Thermo fans were fixed and the new motor has a low 106,000km at the time of install and was removed out of a 2005 KL Verada GTVi, The very last of the Magna / Verada range before being discontinued in 2005. So my car has the body of a late 2000 Model but has the younger 2005 model Power train in it.

XPT Ride south bound Wauchope - Sydney Central 17/12/2017
 
00:56
Just a short clip of a ride on the Australian XPT train, The XPT shares the same basic design as the British HST but the XPT was majorly redesigned in order to handle the not so perfect Australian track conditions and climate. Mainly it had uprated cooling groups to handle the 40+ Degree Celcius days, Better air con / heater units, redesigned bogies, Derated and regeared to handle the at times 1 in 32 climbs and tight bends not experienced by the HST on the British mainline. So this is just a short clip of what the XPT as as a passenger like my self can expect to see along the way. This clip was taken about 5am not long after we entered the Sydney network, As it was an overnight service from Grafton I joined the XPT at 12.24am at Wauchope on the NSW Mid North Coast then we arrived in Sydney at 7am and this clip we were still around 2 hours from Sydney in the Hawksbury River area. I was in Car B seat 4 which is a "First Class" seat, All seats on the XPT are the same comprising of Car A day sitter night sleeper (seats 3 sleeps 2) Car B First Class seated Car C First Class Seated and Buffet Car D on is Economy pending if its a 5 6 or 7 car set. The difference between First and economy as the seats are identical is generally the leg room from like 12 inch to 14 or 15 inch and a slightly better seat pitch. It doesnt sound like much but on a 7 hour trip from Wauchope to Sydney Central it makes all the difference. If I am unable to get Car A being a day sitter which I generally end up with a day sitter to my self I aim for Car B in Seats 1, 2, 3 or 4 or 50 - 54pending on direction of travel. As they are the first row of seats in the car and have a fixed table and added leg room. I'm just over 6 foot and can be seated and have my legs fully stretched out and just have my tip toes touch the wall. Plus it's close to the luggage rack and Toilet in the vestibule so you end up spread out rather then crammed in.

17:35
On the 22nd of December 2017 while on Christmas Cruise on the P&O Pacific Explorer from the 17th to the 27th December, When we docked in Port Vila I surprised my Mum and Sister with a Jet Boat Ride with the local Company "Tropic Thunder Jet" in Vanauatu. Their Facebook page is in the link below so be sure to go check them out and like and follow them and support a small business https://www.facebook.com/tropicthunderjet/ We were on the 9am group had an absolute blast even if e did have a slight mishap, As the Radiator cap popped off and the coolant started spewing out. But our skipper took it in his stride called over one of the other local boats who was doing the Snorkelling tour and went to get some coolant to continue the ride. He was gone for a good 15 - 20 minutes while we were moared in the middle of Port Vila Harbour, Yeah the boat over heated SO WHAT. the group of us couldnt of given a flying rats that we did as what a place to break down in the middle of Port Vila Harbour, So while Uri our skipper went to get more coolant we just sat there enjoying the peace and quiet and the Serenity of where we were. After Uri got back with the coolant we then continued on our way which is why this video is in 2 parts as I stopped recording then started to re record and I'm being a little lazy at currant as I just bought a new laptop so I'm transferring everything onto it (as my 6 month old Lenovo laptop didnt like its trip through the X ray machine and the Hard drive rolled its eyes went stuff you and gave up luckily after I backed everything up to an external hard drive) So this is Part 2 of 2 enjoy Part 1 is linked below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bA4UDdIUt_0&t=41s

620/720 class DMU arriving at Wauchope ex NSW state rail
 
00:48
621/721 DMU arriving into Wauchope on the NSW Mid North Coast during the Centenary of Rail in April 2015. Over a 10 day period between the 10/4/15 - 19/4/15 Wauchope was celebrating the Centenary of rail for 1915 - 2015, 621/721 was doing shuttles on the 13th - 15th April 2015 between Wauchope down south to Kendall, Then up North to Telegraph Point on alternating trips. On the official day of the anniversary there was a full re enactment of the first train into Wauchope. Unfortunately during 621/721's Visit while in the siding overnight it was unfortunately vandalised and on one side of one car was heavily tagged with graffiti. Thankfully it was seen to ASAP and pretty much came straight off with no damage to the normal paintwork.

XPT NT35 Sydney - Wauchope Car A Day sitter / Sleeper car
 
00:33
Just a short clip of a ride on the Australian XPT train, The XPT shares the same basic design as the British HST but the XPT was majorly redesigned in order to handle the not so perfect Australian track conditions and climate. Mainly it had uprated cooling groups to handle the 40+ Degree Celcius days, Better air con / heater units, redesigned bogies, Derated and regeared to handle the at times 1 in 32 climbs and tight bends not experienced by the HST on the British mainline. So this is just a short clip of what the XPT as as a passenger like my self can expect to see along the way. This clip was taken about 3pm outside of the Sydney Network in the XPT's Regional network where it's right at home performing NT35 which was the Sydney - Grafton Service but I left the XPT at Wauchope. I was in Car A and in the Day sitter which had seats 13 14 and 15 with my Mum and Sister which is a "First Class" seat, All seats on the XPT are the same comprising of Car A day sitter night sleeper cabin (seats 3 sleeps 2) Car B First Class seated Car C First Class Seated and Buffet Car D on is Economy pending if its a 5 6 or 7 car set. The difference between First and economy as the seats are identical is generally the leg room from like 12 inch to 14 or 15 inch and a slightly better seat pitch. It doesnt sound like much but on a 7 hour trip from Wauchope to Sydney Central it makes all the difference. If I am unable to get Car A being a day sitter which I generally end up with a day sitter to my self I aim for Car B in Seats 1, 2, 3 or 4 or 50 - 54pending on direction of travel. As they are the first row of seats in the car and have a fixed table and added leg room. I'm just over 6 foot and can be seated and have my legs fully stretched out and just have my tip toes touch the wall. Plus it's close to the luggage rack and Toilet in the vestibule so you end up spread out rather then crammed in.

Timelapse Drive around Port Macquarie NSW Australia
 
00:40
This is just a quick time lapse of a drive around Port Macquarie NSW Australia, Port Macquarie is a leaisurely 4 and a half hour drive north of Sydney up the F3 (or the "M1" as they now call it) and Pacific Highway. This route pretty much included general housing areas, Industrial area, "Main Drag" of Ocean drive, Port Macquarie CBD, Passed Town beach, Oxley beach turnt around at Flynns beach, Back down Gordon street onto Hastings River drive then down Boundary street to Port Macquarie Airport. That was all followed by going back along Hastings river driver turning right up onto Clifton Drive following it through and turning right onto John Oxley Drive, Then left onto Lake road back into the Industrial area followed by turning left into Central road to the end then end on Hindman Street to have completed a full loop outside the North Coast TAFE.

Heatherbrae to Port Macquarie NSW Australia Pacific Highway (M1) Timelapse
 
00:34
Just a short timelapse of the Heatherbrae to Port Macquarie NSW Australia time lapse. The drive was around 220km taking 2 hours 15 minutes roughly to do in 100kph and 110kph zones. As late as 2006 this stretch of highway was only single lane each way with a 80kp/h speed limit, The duplication is still being completed North of Port Macquarie right up to the New South Wales and Queensland Boarder with some sections open and others still under construction while others are yet to start. The last section of the Heatherbrae to Port Macquarie section to open as a dual carraigeway was Bulahdelah in June 2013. The Pacific highway "M1" is notorrious for fatal accidents so they are trying to complete it as fast as possible, The latest fatal was in early September 2017 involving 4 trucks nose to tail with 1 of the drivers unfortunately passing away. The accident occured in Telegrapgh point just north of Port Macquarie where they are currently doing roadworks and nearing completion of the Dual carraigeway section of the highway. Since the project started around 2006 the travel time from Sydney to Port Macquarie has been cut from 11+ hours down to just 4 and a half hours to do the 400km drive up the F3 and Pacific Highway "M1", So yes it may be taking a long time so far 10+ years to do 1000km or so of highway but each new section is well worth the wait and cuts even more time off the trip between Sydney and Brisbane. It's no Autobahn but its a pretty scenic drive.

KJ Verada Auto Acceleration (Mitsubishi Magna / Diamante)
 
00:16
Just a quick 0 - 100kph acceleration video of my 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi, On a slight uphill gradient, Also take into account it is a 1500kg vehicle running a standard 6G74 V6 3.5 litre with a 4 speed auto transmission (yes I know the TCL off and engine light are on it's caused by the traction control solenoids failing its a common fault on this model that doesn't affect the drivability, It just means you have no traction control not that I need it as it doesn't snow where I live. The car is now a touch faster as a 5 speed manual with a fresh motor with less then 100,000km on it and drives a lot better with better fuel economy and has given the car a whole new lease on life. I'll get a video of the Manual 0 - 100kph soon when I have time.

2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi 5 speed manual Power run / Cruise (In Cabin, Magna / Diamante)
 
18:56
I've had a couple of people ask me what it's like to drive my 2000 Mitsubishi KJ Verada V6Xi after it was converted from a 4 speed triptronic auto to a 5 speed manual and with the uprated 163kw engine over the stock 150kw motor. The difference going from the V6 3.5 Litre 4 speed trip tronic auto with 150kw to the V6 3.5 Litre 5 speed manual with 163kw. The difference was just incredible it was like night and day, It went from being your run of the mill town car / highway cruiser to a beast that you can flog the balls off then jump on the highway stick Cruise control on and it becomes a great highway cruiser. So in short it went from being fairly limited in it's athletic ability but now it's more spritely and uses it's power more efficiently in a range of driving conditions as in this clip where I drove in town, on a regional road on the edge of town, Flogged it out onto the highway did a 0 - 100kp/h threw cruise control on it cruised. In this clip the speeds varied between 50 - 100kp/h with a mix of town and highway driving. I was trying a new mount for my small action cam (it's a cheaper version of a GoPro it was only $49locally) it was stuck to the sunroof using the suction cup mount then the action camera mount goes into it as normal. Next time I'll mount it to the windscreen rather then the sunroof as this clip I was aiming to also get the speedo in shot.

1994 Mitsubishi Magna (Verada, Diamante) Trailer Update
 
14:06
A couple of people have asked for an update or suggested a couple of things to do with the trailer since my last video about it in Juky 2015. So without further delay here it is. A few things I have done are as follows - Opaque window tint $20 for 6 metres on eBay my first attempt over 12 months ago and it will be redone eventually, As being my first attempt it didnt come ut 100% so I'll end up redoing it properly. - Front skin has been done in galvonised / Rust treated sheet metal that I picked up from a 2nds yard and for the time being it is all pot riveted / bolted together then once I am finished and happy with how it is I'll fully weld it and then give the whole trailer a sand a skim coat of body filler and primer and prep the whole thing for paint properly then paint it in either it's original colour of "Mirage Silver" which is like a kashmeer goldy silver colour, Sapphire Blue thats on the Verada or the Crysta blue thats on the replacement panels underneath. All are metalics apart from the Sapphire blue which is a Metallic Pearl. I would do it all in one hit but due to the registration requirements in NSW Australia I'm doing bit by bit in my spare time and keeping it road worthy and road legal at the same time. As what people from others states like Victoria and Queensland dont realise when they say you should have done it this or that way etc and pick every single fault. They tend to not realise that NSW has a stricter set of guidelines for registration so I have no option but to sacrafice the odd thing I want to do to it in order to keep it road worthy road legal in order to renew rego every year. As it weighs over the 255kg threshold at 400kg and it is now 5 or more years old since it was complianced since it's a June 2010 compliance it's classed as a 7 year old trailer despite the body being 23 years old as a 1994 model. Due to that in order to re register it each year I need to - Obtain a "Pink slip" (road worthy) to say the trailer is 100% roadworthy, All lights work, Tyres have more then 1.6mm of tread etc) - Once it has a passed pink slip it can be re registered its a catch 22 pain in the bum to have an annual road worthy but good for that annual check up with a fresh set of eyes. As for the car I removed the body kit shortly after my previous video as I got sick of the police pulling me up and admitting because it was because of the bidy kit (Funny how a factory TJ Magna VRX body kit attracts unwanted attention on a car body style it was designed by Mitsubishi to be on)

I may not do things conventionally or "Politically Correct" I just do them from my point of view, So sit back and enjoy and all feedback be it good or bad is taken with a grain of salt. If you get a reply consider your self lucky if not I may be still wrapping my head around your comments or giving it a bit of thought.

Mitsubishi TR Magna / Verada Trailer update
 
05:16
This is just a quick update on the 1994 Mitsubishi TR Magna turned trailer. Since the last Video it has had a couple of items done inclusive of - Fresh coat of rust killer gloss black paint. - New Suspension struts, The Brand is "Gabriel" and the specific variant I used was "Gaurdian" the specific part number was "81147" Where the info I had at the time about them a couple of weeks ago stated they were designed for Australian conditions, Until I get at least 5 years or 20,000km out of them I don't trust the marketing hype to much. Until they prove them selves worthy on Australian roads then for now I'll just see them as a run of the mill cheap USA made unit at $52 each compared to the equivalent KYB or Monroe which was the original fitted shock are $152 each so $100 more per unit. http://www.gabrielshocks.com.au/ Window tint 6 metres was $29.95 with free shipping from Pro Tinting supplies from Chimside park which I believe is in Victoria (Australia) They do every type of tint you can imagine as a reasonable price. It was my first attempt so it's not the best but it's better then none. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271434565674 - Tyres were $140 the pair and I mistakingly said they were Mayrun MR500's they are actually Mayrun MR800's (Silly me got mixed up with the ones I am running on the car) My tyre shop / Mechanics just wanted to get rid of them as they were the last pair so I got them at cost as they have discontinued the Mayruns from their stock line and replaced it with another budget tyre range. As for the front reskin just put it in the comments below what you would do as I am looking at 2 possibilities, Option 1) re skin it with a fresh sheet of galvanised sheet metal in 1 piece rather then multiple due to patches over the years, That way it will still have the flat front. Option 2) Put a more aerodynamic front on it by having the lower half sit vertically and out to where the jockey wheel is adding close to a metre to the body work, That way it goes from full width to the width of the draw bar. Then have the top piece drop from the roof down on an angle then have the winglets to the side to the body, Essentially allowing as the air stream from the car hits it it'll then be deflected up and around the front of the trailer and helping with fuel economy especially on the highway by reducing drag rather then have the wind straight off the car hitting a vertical wall. It'll also allow me to put a new floor in and remove the transmission tunnel. So post what you would do by simply saying "Aerodynamic" or " Reskin as is" For those who may want to build one them selves within Australia, All you need to do is follow VSB1 which is at the following link https://infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/vsb1/ Then check with your local Registration mob for what needs to occur to have it registered. In NSW it will require 1) Blue Slip (Road worthy only need to do this once initially as long as you don't let the rego expire, If you do make sure it's re registered within 3 months of the rego expiry as if it isn't it will need a new blue slip and essentially need to be fully re registered with a new number plate and generally a headache) for this you will also need the weighbridge ticket so they know the weight of the trailer so it can go on the compliance plate which they will attach. 2) Compliance plate / New VIN number as a new trailer, Generally the AUSVIS station doing the Blue slip will organize this step during the Blue slip process. 3) Once the Blue slip and compliancing are all done you can then go to the RMS and pay the rego fees and it's all done ready to go and you just renew the rego every year without an inspection by just paying the registration fee. It's easy to do, Just make sure you document it well take all the info you need and say it's been built in compliance with VSB1 building small trailers under 4.5 tonnes and you should have no drama's. If you have drama's with the inspection process for roadworthy do not hesitate to contact your registration authority about it to arm your self with some more info. As that's what I did and an RMS inspector actually turned up at my mechanics to physically inspect him self and do the blue slip process and complianced it on the spot after my mechanics refused to by stating it was unsafe.

Eastern Creek Pit Lane V8 supercars hot lap  Australia Supercheap Auto
 
01:18
A couple of short clips from when I won a V8 Supercar hot lap through Supercheap Auto and got to ride shot gun with the one and only awesome Tim Slade. Tim is one of the drivers for the Supercheap Auto Racing team, His regular car which is nick named the "SCAR machine" was involved in a bit of a punch up 2 days prior and was being rebuilt ready for the next race. As a result of that Tim was using a close friends / co driver from Walkinshure racings car which is the blue "HHA" Holden Commodore. This particular day was in August 2014 and was specifically a "Hot Lap" day for fans to pay in excess of $250+ for 1 single hot lap, Luckily for me since I Won the hot lap through a facebook competition that SCA were running I ended up with 2 laps and got to hang out in the Pits, hang out in the drivers café / bar, had a one on one chat meet and greet with Tim Slade, Autographs, Tour of the SCA truck that they transport the cars in essentially treated as a VIP. It was an outright awesome day and was an experience I will never forget, As actually going to the races and watching the race is an experience in it self but actually being in the pits and being involved in getting the car ready for the day and actually being able to start a V8 Supercar race car is a whole different experience in it self. All these clips are short and taken in pit lane and from the drivers café, Unfortunately my computer keeps having a panic attack when I try to compress the 2.85gb file from the actual hotlap down to a more bite sized size to upload (took 17 hours then went NOPE, tried again then the computer crashed twice, so it obviously doesn't like it for some reason)

The two clips being Real time drive Port Macquarie to Bonny Hills via Ocean Drive NSW Australia And Real time drive Bonny Hlls - Port Macqarie via Pacific / Oxley Highways NSW Australia Are just 2 Raw trial video's filmed in 720p at 60FPS using a GoPro, Pending on the Views and feedback when I go over to the US next March / April. I'll make the effort to get up front footage and have 2 versions being Raw and Edited, To give people front row seats of what it's like essentially "Through My Eyes" as I start to travel more. I prefer the Raw uncut realistic look but at times I will edit when the time calls for it (Hey I didnt sit through 2 years of TAFE doing my Certificate 4 in Digital media for nothing). So these 2 will be the base of if I start to do a "Travel VLOG" each time I travel be it by Road, Train, Plane or Cruise ship, If I can help at least one person with my video's be it for travel or one of my builds for me they are a success.

Lighthouse beach Port Macquarie NSW Australia  Time lapse
 
00:32
This is just a short test time lapse of Port Macquarie's "Lighthouse beach" one of 8 local beaches. For a short 32 second time lapse equated to 25 minutes of shooting on a timer, I used the standard "Time lapse" feature on my iPad Air running iOS 9. It is by no means high definition coming from an iPad camera, The song is one of Youtubes Freebies called "Heat wave" which seemed fitting since it was 30 degrees celcius at the time of doing the clip and I had to do the old Hot sand shuffle in bare foot. It's not fun being bare foot on hot sand.
