As I am still working on the trailer getting it 'bush" ready I discovered a couple of wheel nuts not fitting as they should.

At first I figured it might have been the new paint on the studs but after knocking a stud out this arvo I am positive that the studs are recycled ones.

Company I bought the trailer off states studs are Landcruiser but rims were Hi Lux (not sure if the studs are the same ) when bought.

Going to order 12 Nissan studs and nuts so that everything is interchangeable from truck to trailer as I am running alloys on truck and steels on trailer.

Seems to me manufacturers want to cut corners all the time.

There are other impurities in the trailer design but I will be able to rectify them....at a price.

Willem,
I made the mistake once of buying a set of 6 trailer studs and nuts which said "to suit Nissan/LandCruiser". They were the right size and shape, but wrong thread. So I got my money back. I wouldn't be too critical of the trailer company - this is how this stuff is supplied to them.

Cheers
Phil

Take heart my old friend, at least you found it at home and not halfway down the Canning or some other equally remote place.

You're not wrong, Duncs

BTW......have you been out to Radium Hill Ruins? The old uranium township lies east of Olary.

No idea Mary. I would expect it to be 20 to 25km from the highway but not through Olary. I think that the Olary Pub is still operating but not being a pub person I cannot say for sure

Hi Willem. My experience with landcruiser/hilux rims is...same stud pattern, same studs, same tolerances. Not that this helps you now but.......

I take it you will be letting them know of your displeasure of discovering this?

Cheers, Muzz

Hi Muzz

No, not worth the argument and aggro.

I knew that I would have to bring the trailer up to my specs and it was a lot cheaper than those in Melbourne.

So I will wear the repairs.

Cheers

Got any happy snaps of the work in progress???

e.g.
1. Like new, before the mods
2. framework/alterations of mods
3. nearly there
4. "Willie-ised" & completed

hey, BTW, saw some fan bludy tastic Blues last two Saturday arvos on ABC 2. It was the 1997 Montreaux jazz festival. 4 hours of live electric guitar, organ, piano, accoustic guitar, the lot, some getting to R & B style; just great. The cook had to go up the other end of the house - she said something about it being loud.
Searched the net - or more specifically iTunes & SoiundBuzz, but got nuthin'. Pity.
