Everyone take note that he a) arrived at an HH b) in a Rover c) has more miles on this than prob the last 3 Rovers combined...(except maybe the Disco he drove to MAR in 09).

You'll also note the look of disdain I'm (almost certainly deservedly) giving Lav.

I was actually wondering why you were so angry...that time of the month? And I don't mean HH.

I think it was general disgust with Boulevard of Broken Dreams that is Kilroy's. (and yes, it does say that on the wall).

Who wound up staying behind to wash dishes?

Anyone have a steering wheel puller I can borrow? Got a replacement turn switch to hopefully fix the damn headlights.

Ironically I just went through this, and have been talking with Billy (that bought the yellow 90, Murph's old truck).

From what I could gather, you can easily make one...just a flat piece of steel with 2 holes drilled into it at the same distance apart as the 2 threaded holes that are behind the crashpad on the steering wheel.

Then you just get 2 1/4-28 thread hex-head bolts, and pass them through the holes in the homemade steel piece and into the threads. As you tighten, it should pop the steering wheel right off. We're going to give it an attempt this week I believe.

Welp finally pulled the steering wheel and changed the switch. Same thing happens and the new switch didn't fit the wiper switch. Did pick up a rubber mallet to use on the steering column instead of my fist.

Giant Snap Ring Pliers

Bought the heavy duty internal/external set just for the sake of my turbo housing re-clocking thing. Anybody needing to disassemble their turbo or do anything else involving huge snap rings (Hey, no questions asked) hit me up. I won't be needing them again for a while.

NOVA guys - did anyone see the Washington Post story on the recent LeMons race at Summit Point? They featured a fellow named Matt Bartlett who claims to have restored a Series III 109.

Is he inside our teepee?

Saw the article and Matt's team at the track. There was a Series 88 parked w/ VA tags in the paddock for the weekend. The BMW E30 in the background is my car in line for the tech inspection. Short weekend for us. Overheated and warped the head.

Grab three other yahoos and pull together a team! It is a blast.

What do you mean doesn't fit? You know you could have plugged in the new switch as a test before pulling the steering wheel right?

That pic there is Matthew Yip's series III. He's been to a couple of NOVA Happy Hours. Matt works for OG Racing and I believe is officiating at some of the Lemons races.
