9th April 2009: Latest development, modification!:
I bought proper bash plates from 'T0me' of www.delicaclub.com and installed them today!

The first proper 4WDing test!
This is the 'where' - Forrestdale, about 20-30 mins south of Brisbane.
Learning the clearance. It's not that much actually... about 15cm or so....
Saw this easy-looking climb spot.
No problem, there were deep groves which I had to avoid but it climbed beautifully.
There was a soft sand patch too - used normal 4H and went through, stopped, went, stopped reversed, turned.... All with no problems.
