Dare. We've seen what Jones boys do with vehicles on a dare.

Damn, that's pretty aggressive. I'm off to go figure out why my wipers are blowing the fuse. I hope it's not the motor!

Rock Show down in Stanton Va has a dear door off a disco for sale with wiper motor for $250.

Anyone know if the motor will do the trick?

I doubt it. Defender wipers are cable driven like a sunroof.

I just made it down after a multi-hour delay leaving home. I needed to take the Rover back to the Spring shop to get them to break loose my lug nuts they installed with a 3/4 " air impact tool and they discovered they they installed by shackles upside down while they were at it.

They fixed it all at no charge while I waited - but I waited.

I will try to post up some photos tomorrow.

Last nights scenic run was excellent. The trails are excellent. Here's a pic of my son's first go behind the wheel. He's hooked. Clay
