The trip is fast approaching. Shaun is already on leave and undertaking some last minute vehicle preparation.
Today he was working on the Colorado and he happened upon this little nasty with potentially big consequences.
Shaun was rotating the tyres and spotted a broken spring. Panic set in because of time frames and $$$$$ but as per usual we get things sorted.
After ringing around half of northern NSW and SE QLD he finally ordered the parts and hopefully they will arrive in the coming few days.
In all fairness, the springs have been on the vehicle since we purchased the Colorado 190,000km ago.
It certainly isn’t something we need right now, time-wise or financially but it sure is better than being in the middle of nowhere and having something happen.
Thanks to Shaun’s attention to detail and thoroughness, potential disaster has been averted.
