Any of you locals still have an LT95? Clay? I have genuine front and rear output seals I don't need.

Warning: Don't be disappointed when you watch this clip. There's not a single S. African guy sporting flip-flops and spotting anyone, anywhere.

Possible change of venue / date?

Shameless self promotion, I know....

But would the NOVA guys consider a change in venue/date for the Month of October? (I am told that a bunch of German flight attendants may be showing up....)

Put a new drag link on my discovery yesterday but do not have a grease gun. Does anyone have a grease gun you can bring to happy hour? Thanks!

Thanks man! Yes new sloes are on and look damn good. A little rubbing going on when I hit a bump. which takes me to my next question, anyone have a set of longer than average trailing arms to sell? Need to push those rear wheels off the front fender flair some.

Or cut more. Maybe Jeff can bring the battery tools. Are you sure that's where it's rubbing?

See how much thread shows in front of the nuts on the trailing arms. That's how much room you have to safely put spacers/washers in if you want to just push the wheels back a little.

If/when you want to get castor corrected from radius arms, talk to me - I have a set I don't need.

We can deduct it from the GBR DS, right?

Billy-
You are going to want a grease gun at some point for the drive shaft(s) alone. I have both the full size and mini versions, some go automated too.

Keep your eyes peeled for Rovertracks trailing arms to pop up on Dweb and the like if you want HD versions.

Will be there tomorrow but prob not till 7ish.

Thanks... i know i need to grab a gun but at Caps game tonight then tomorrow right to HH from work. I'll grab one after the HH for sure. Thanks for the Rov Tracks Trailing Arms will keep eyes peeled. Galpin, the cutting option might be the way forward, too. Jeff is looking for the rivets I'd left over there on Sunday... if he's got them, come cuttin and readjusting the fender flairs may be the way forward. Deffo rubbing on flairs in front side of back tires. not a whole lot of room in the front either. open to suggestions.

Billy - had dinner with your dad (and the rest of the NOVA early Ford V-8 group) in Hershey last week! He told me about the new Disco. Sounded great.

Amazon Prime and the grease gun will be waiting for you tomorrow.

Should have pointed out you could also consider Rovertym rear links

http://www.rte-fab.com/products?page...category_id=10

or Rockware
http://www.rockware.net/rover2.html

if you went new for the trailing arms.

Kilroys. Starts when the drunks show up (call it 5ish) and ends when they leave (depends on turnout).
