What a great coffee club meeting, 9 people attended and talked for 2.5 hrs non stop. Peter has just arrived back from a CSR trip, Robert has just done the Simpson and we were all happy to hear about their adventures. Chris is preparing for a trip to the top area of WA and Robin is preparing to do an adventure across the Simpson again and on to the national gathering at Trilby Station.

It was good and with one of the "Kids" showing up the youngest coffee lover age is now down to 23 which substantially lowered the average age of the group - however I had a word to him about skippy study for tomorrow's fluid dynamics exam.

Thanks to advice from a member he rushed home and rewired the light bar on his roof to only come on with a manual switch and labelled it "Work Light" and now has 1 less defectable issue - if this keeps up the coffee club venue will have to move to a bigger premisis and the kids will fill it up looking for good advice.

Thanks Everyone.

Don't forward facing roof mounted lights also have to have opaque covers on them when they are on public roads, to be legal?
At least that is what one of local RWC testers told me.

Hi Shaker
I'm not the expert on this but it is my understanding that the key point is wether it is defined as a driving or a work light.

A work light should not be used driving and should only be operated by a manual switch (illuminated) and labelled as such.

I have actually requested a ruling on this but no written answer has come ( 1 month waiting).

Last year I bought a 2007 Rodeo diesel dual cab, immediately realised that I didn't like it & decided to resell it.
It had a light bar on the roof, which I would have removed if I kept it but decided that it might appeal to a purchaser, however our RWC tester wouldn't pass it, so I removed it anyway & gave it to the purchaser.

Section "E" para 4 Vic Roads motor regulations , sort of says you can have the lights , but don't say how you can hook them up or where you can have them on the vehicle .

Thanks everyone it was a good way to spend a morning. Look forward to more when I get back from my travels.
What other people think of me is none of my business.
