A while back I picked up @qube's Mpars.

Today I finally got around to getting them fitted and balanced.

looks superb, Adrian.  My photography took on a particularly nocturnal phase while our bairns were young, that was the time I could get out without impacting domestic situation.  Ready to shoot with you whenever you like.

yes, that is the baby in the baby capsule in the back seat ..

@Olaf super keen to shoot photos in the future. At the moment it's pretty hard for me to lock in a time but that will change...eventually.....i hope!

Thanks @qube!

Yeah, could do with an update but I’m holding off as long as I can.

Ha, as you know the glass is more important (along with the nut behind the lens); D700 is still a great bit of kit with lovely colours.  Only sold mine a few months ago, trying to shift my 3rd D3 which is taking some time.  D810 on the horizon, for me, I'm no early adopter.  We'll get to shooting when you find opportunity.  I'll IM.

And a couple more....I’m pretty stoked with  how the 18’s look and feel.

Quick clean yesterday, and for once it didn't rain overnight so it's still clean today!

Thanks man. 

Yeah I had to get a couple of new ones on the front....been sitting on these rims for a while waiting for some spare money to come round. Went for the cheaper option of hankooks @ $215 a corner. My tyre guy wasn’t very impressed that I was swapping out the 10,000km old RE003’s and S001’s for these.  I’m just going to hoard them for now.

Warrent time today. Took it to VTNZ as I was confident there weren't any issues. Turns out the orange film on the rear indicators had cracked off and they failed it because they were white. A quick trip to Repco and it's all sorted. 🙂
