They where using a DR engine but it kept flooding because the DR engine was far to powerful and forced to much fuel into the F-15 jet engine

The solar panels are Sunrise Solartech (1580mm x 808mm). Brand new. 190 watt. Serial numbers begin with S5M0911111. Careful if you are being sold panels without boxes.
The trailer is a grey tandem trailer with high bars on the dropsides. It is a flat top, meaning the wheels are under the tray, no mudguards. Manufactured by Westbrook Trailers. I'm unsure of the rego but the plate will have been removed by now anyway. I'll post a pic if i can get one.


I'm offering a $5000.00 reward for infomation leading to the recovery of these 78 panels and the trailer.

Contact me on 0427 258101

Cheers
Bruce

Now to the thieving pricks who spoiled my day,
One of you idiots walked into the wire you cut and left behind some blood, so the police were happy to send the sample away for DNA analysis. Hope you have a prior. then you'll be mine, mine do you hear. HaHaHaHAHAHAH.
Sorry to hear of your loss, with a bit of luck the guy will get a good infection off the barb wire.

Maybe 205, but just noticed this in Cycle Torque. One of the real hard men of Aussie motorcycle racing, gone at 56.

AJ was THE hard man of racing. i seem to recall a story from the SWann series in the mid '80s when Honda Aust got a RS500 3 cyl 500 2 stroke gp customer bike to run from Japan. AJ got the ride over Mal Campbell. He then broke his ankle in a stack in the first round. He then proceded to walk around normally for the next few weeks so he could keep the ride on the "exotic" GP bike. Then there was the 309km run down Conrod complete with a 3 foot wheelie over the last hump. Hard man, ? That barely describes him. Ride on AJ you were an original!!

There was a guy by the name of Even Green from memory, who wrote an article about young guys killing themselves in hot rod cars.
Apparently the cars fault and not the drivers

So the V8's were taken out of the XU1 Torana's, GTHO Phase 4's were canned,
Chrysler E55 Chargers 340CI engines were detuned, out went the new process 4 speeds
and in went the 727 Torqueflites, out went the Chrsyler 8 3/4 diffs and Borg Warner's installed.
