Knightsbridge Overland Seat Covers

I just installed new Knightsbridge Overland seat covers. I believe they bought the patterns, etc from Kexby. Im very happy with the fit and finish. I asked for grey covers with black piping and the owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. The only trouble I had was with getting the headrests off the seat. Once I figured that out it was a ten minute job.

Hopefully it's safe now to mention this and I don't jinks myself by saying that this week I've logged about 200 fresh new miles on my tdi and, she's running great.

She was actually running really rough over the weekend which was a bummer. It's been a challenging build/swap at times so I have to publically thank Dave Bobeck for his patience and sticktoitiveness, to say the least.

I was telling Dave today I've been leaving for work early and driving around at lunch because it's just so freakin fun to drive. Left work early today and plan on calling in sick tomorrow too.

Vain parking spot so I could stare at it while having coffee this morning.

Picked up a couple of horse stall matts from Tractor Supply today. It was nice to see they are made in Canada.

Spent some time working with the grinder and welder yesterday. The rear cross member was badly in need of some new life. Still needs some more sanding and paint, but it's solid and free of rust again.

This morning the wife took some screen, sewing machine, and 550 cord to fabricate window screens. The are built like pillow cases and we slide them over the rolled down windows to keep the bugs out and allow ventilation when the two oldest kids sleep in the rover. With three kids we do the smallest kid in the RTT with the wife and I with the two oldest in the back on foam pads. Florida bugs and bears will get you! Click image for larger version

Tested out the window screen socks and they worked great. Zero bugs overnight and kids loved it.
