    Hi there,

    I saw JP with a silver Pajero on Lynwood yesterday (2x). He was very friendly, and even stopped to ask if everything was fine, since I was standing next to the road, waiting for someone.

    It is a 2.5" Skyjacker lift, yes. Coil springs and nitro shocks. Fitted it myself. You just need to modify the bracket that bolts onto the stabaliser bar bracket, since we have RHD here :)

    What bird is this?

    Hi guys,

    Please pardon my ignorance on the subject of birding :-[

    I saw this bird in my garden over the weekend.

    It seemed like it was eating a rat or something. Is it a type of falcon?
