One week later,still smiling

Hey all,
Thanks for the welcome.
Bought my LR week or so ago and haven't run out of excuses to use it yet
Where I live, even though very high brow! No Land Rovers, so they guys in the pumped up Wranglers, etc are a little taken back.
Lots of thumbs up from young and old, so I wonder how people know about them?
For me it was early 70's TV shows like Daktari?
Drove it up from NYC last Fridaybevening on Broadway from Bowling green to Inwood and to say it caused a minor riot is an understatement.
Red light mayhem , everyone wanted it...Yea
Stopped and talked, gassed up, bought some fruits and veggies at La Marquetta
It was a blast and proves they are as iconic as we think
Tonight is a 1000 car show at Bear Mountian State Park, and I can only imagine the questions
BTW -it takes place every Wed nite till late fall 5-10pm
Since this is the technical section?
What type of oil goes in the front drive swivels ?
Rovers North said 90 weight?
Don't know that that is right
Also
No fancy wheels for now, just painted my Nato's silver and they look brutally good
Installed 4 jump seats, new drivers bottom and all is good
Keep the faith
And...God Bless America. Former USAF

Swivel grease is better than 90wt IMHO unless you are taking it in water all the time and need to drain it frequently.
