A good part of the last four days was the #4 Discovery route. It is always different. Great neck of the woods. We got a little wet but still a lot of fun!

Changed all cooling system hoses, T-Stat, and flushed the radiator in the wife's 90. She took it for a test drive after.

Changed the gear oil in the front and rear diffs. The oil in the rear has been in there about 5 years and it was kind of thick. Kind of like syrup. The front seemed fine.

It was yours that made me do it though! Even used the same paint (Krylon Satin Ivory Silk). I like the look a lot and takes a lot of the MOD out of it while still maintaining its character. Despite the somewhat hatred for the Tithonus tops, I was crawling around in the back of it today thankful for the extra few inches.

Did my video load for anyhody? It was the odometer turning 70000 miles. Uploaded to the youpipe. Barely caught it. So satisfying watching them roll over, though.

Got a front Ashcroft locker to match my rear Ashcroft locker.

Built dual solenoid manifold mount, plus integrated air pressure regulator to keep the lockers at 85psi, wiring block.

Overtym cranked trailing arms (raffle win too) finally installed as well as the cb is temporarily mounted while I figure out if it's where I want it and the 2m radio...
Need to tune the antenna still...
Moved the battery around a bit to see if I can fit 2 in line with the truck (can't need the side to side with my Delrin floor spacer... getting finally ready for that project in the near future..
Installed a 7 way trailer plug, waiting on the brake controller to finish that up hopefully early next week before URE.

Unsuccessfully chased electrical gremlins in a place as stupid as blinkers. I'm convinced hell isn't filled with intense heat, but rather filled with old rovers with wiring issues.

98% of all aux wiring issues are earths and dirty connectors.

That was it. Found the gremlin, smote him, buttoning everything back up and drop the bulb on the concrete. It's not noon yet but I think it's time for a beer.
