Thanks to all the volunteers, Pearl's Pond is ready for the MAR with a little signage. We have all but three trails and the island to use.

The problem with a LWB headliner, most any RRC headliner is that damn panel in the sunroof assembly.

The biggest thing is the plastic and metal clips that hold the panel in the track. There seems like no way to remove them without busting them, and no way to put them back in place again.

Lucky 8 is giving away a Powertank to the best photo from the weekend, as well as sponsoring the RTI ramp and the repair/install center. If you are thinking about modifying your truck this would be a good time to see what Justin has and how it goes on. Gear and a Beer will be shooting on site that weekend as well.

Discounted Pre-Registration ends tonight @ Midnight correct ? Saving $20 is usually enough to get a bunch of these cheap bastads moving.

that is on par with last year, so I expect about the same turn out. Some folks wait until closer to the event and watch the weather. There will be a good number today as well.

Clips! What clips, I don't remember any clips and mine is holding just fine, except that I have to redo it because its bubbling again!
Got a guy near me that relines it for $100! This will be the second time I'm doing this!

Hope there's a MAR next year, because I'm definitly attending!
Can't wait to see some pics!

Joel,
How much did you say you wanted for the RRC hood?
I'm looking for the off white color (Chawton White maybe?) for a 1990 RRC. We emailed a while back but never got a price.
Thanks!

- Discovery 1 stock rear bumpers, various D1 bumper endcaps
- COMPLETE rear jumpseat setup for Discovery II, Lightstone Beige, every nut/bolt/panel/bracket etc
- DOORS! I have lots of doors, if I don't have your color my doors are cheap enough to paint.
- RRC doors in Alpine White and Avalon Blue, Disco doors in willow green, chawton white, alpine white, silver, black, oxford blue, probably more I can't remember.
- FENDERS I have D1, RRC, D2, and RR4.0/4.6 fenders in various colors, also hoods!
- D2 interior parts in IMMACULATE shape, from a low mileage truck cared for my an OCD owner. Still smells new even. Carpet, door panels, light beige seats front and rear, etc.
- Range Rover Classic coil spring conversion kits, one OME kit and one RTE kit (NLA!)
- Disco 2 rear air suspension-to-coil spring conversion kits
- decent set (4) of 265/75R16 mud tires, 6/32 remaining, high quality remoulds imported from the UK
- single tires, 255/65R16 Toyo Open Country, Falken LT235/85R16, Dunlop Mud Rover LT235/85R16 and 265/75R16
- One pair of real nice Michelin 205/80R16 tires, unused RRC spares, can get more details (and maybe more of these) upon request
- Two (maybe 3) Michelin 235/70R16 tires, unused or little used original spares in excellent condition

- HEADLINERS! If you have a D1 with sunroofs, a RRC LWB, and maybe a SE7 D2 with sunroofs and rear AC- and your headliner is sagging but you do not want to tackle a recover yourself, then I may be able to bring a recovered headliner to MAR with me and you can burn your old one in the bonfire. More details forthcoming.

... and more. I will keep posting updates as I come across items.

Oh the hood is cheap. Make me an offer, and I will bring it.



Does anyone know if there will be a slow race this year???

When you take the sunroof panel down from the roof you will see what I mean. There are plastic clips that hold the sliding panel in the tracks. You remove those and the sliding panel comes out so that you can re cover it. "Installation is the reversal of the procedure"

For you fishing and boating types, Orvis will be out on Sat doing some demos, and they have donated to the raffle and auction again this year. Appomattox River Company will also be out with some demo kayaks and canoes, and they are donating a kayak.

No word yet on the chocolate fountain or helicopter rides.
