I am waiting on the verdict on my head, after driving off the trails without a functioning water pump! On the brighter side I have some lovely demister vents, and wing covers from the Lav bling collection to install, courtesy of the ONSLS's URE 12 auction!

Vin bar code

Here is funny,

Took my 85 LR90 for its safety inpection, I always sit out side watching when the guy walks to the rightside, they stand there for a second before coming to get my to drive it in the shop.

Same happened today so I drives it in and go back to my coffee, kid comes up to me and asks where the Vin bar code is, without thinking I says supid boy, I will say he is a new kid to the shop.

It's getting that I park up put my name on the list, and the guy hands me a pass sheet. Gotta love the US of A, no poking sticks or high idle diesel tests. I do miss the Ministry test (MOT) yea right

Drove up to Uncle Douglas's farm in Gods country, Va to do you do in the head gasket on my 200 Tdi. After the head was off we took it over to uncle Doug's supersecret machine shop to check the head any problems. Found a little warping and had that fixed up. Then back to the farm to reinstall on the truck. After that was completed uncle Doug worked his magic and tuned up my truck. Then it was off to Uwharrie to test it on the trails what a difference! Thank you Uncle Doug! Sorry for the stupid iPhone pic.

That sure is a sexy two step ladder you hauled up all the way from Florida. Goes with the patina of the 65yr old barn pretty well.

After finally getting it to start...

I figured it was time to get a ladder so I could use the rack. The rack is off my series III 109. I cut it short and welded it to fit.
