The Story:
During October 2018, a truck went into my lane and written off my 2005 H6 Liberty which I only owned for one whole month... So after discussion with the CEO of the family (my wife)... It was time for a turbo. Found this car on facebook and after have a good long chat, a test drive and a few hours of consideration, I put a deposit down and bought it :D
 
What does 'Tatay' mean?
In filipino it means dad, my liberty was abit of a grandpa wagon so I called it Lolo (grandpa). Since it looks more like a dad car and the fact I have a two year old, it is now a 'tatay' car :)

So yesterday did some work on the car. The rear garnish was missing, so as soon as I bought the car, I drove down to pick'n'payless in Blacktown and got me a rear garnish for $50.
 
First jack up your car.

Took off some bolts and bolted in the new one.

Twas a good 30 minute install. Now it looks complete!
 
Next update, I will probs get the 18x8.5 Rota G forces preped and painted ready for tyres.

Nice easy fix on that rear garnish - makes it look 100 times better!

Shame to hear about your old ride. Hopefully this one will last much, much longer!

Cheers

Kevin brought his car past today, it was a little dirty but the car has big potential to be a really good all-rounder. Keen to see where he takes it!
