Starter Dog removal and mysterious van spotted

This charming J (or JB) was spotted driving on a Melbourne freeway (M1, Bourke Rd exit) early today, a cold wet morning. Thanks for the shot James, apparently the van is immaculate, no registration details. Does anyone know anything about it?

To remove a the starter dog - crank nut - balance pulley nut (whatever it is called) with the engine in the car, try this tip - put a big wrench on the nut, support the handle on the chassis (this spanner has a rubber handle, but a block of wood will do to protect the body) and crank the starter over for half a second. This takes the hard work out of removing the nut! Not my idea, but it does work very well.
