    Finally had an opportunity to update my thread with the latest rig. Had the VE for over 6 months now but unfortunately the boat has been garaged all Summer because of the permanent floods on the Murray.

    Looks the good mate im very jealous. I think a set of black mags for the boat trailer would finish it off just right.

    Great looking combo, I agree with whiteman69 black mags and your boat trailer painted black would be the finishing touches.

    Hi Simonk,

    Very nice rig mate, just not sure about the roll cage on the boat? ..................... JOKING!

    Wrt the black Pentagons, did you get these as is on the car or had them painted? If so, how much $?

    Thanks guys. I'd love the trailer and wheels to be black but I've got bigger priorities.

    E3 4 me, one or the previous owners had the wheels painted. I accidentally scraped one on a brick wall the other day so I got a quote to have it repaired. I think they were called advanced wheels in Moorabbin and they quoted $200 to respray the wheel so I guess $800 is a good indication for you.

    I hope your carefull launching and retrieving with that, we used a VT for one year to tow the boat and have now gone with a 4x4. The VT rusted badly, even after cleaning and using fish oil every time, rims were rusted to hubs, hubs rusted to studs, underneath rusted to rear axle and before you ask no we didn't drown it, but just being that close to river or ocean is bad for car.
    I always wanted one, but now i'm to responsible to enjoy one!!
    ONLY JOKING!!!
