In Normandy XXX Corps included the 50th (Northumbrian) Division which landed on Gold Beach. It quickly overwhelmed the German defenders of the 716th Infantry Division and linked up with the British 1st Corps by the end of D-Day.

Why the decals are there I have no idea, I bought it straight from the British military, so it's something that some one there added.

If anyone knows anything else then if love to know!

For the record and to satisfy my penchant for correcting things that I can't fix...

Its a european feral boar, not a wild peccary. But I lived in south texas for a few years, I know there's no difference to y'all.
Wen't out hunting (pre internet) for this fabled "javelina" the likes of which I had never seen. It was a damn feral pig... the likes of which almost everyone had seen. "Only we in texas have javelinas" Which is true...outside mexico, but not what people were hunting. Maybe you are.. if you're extreme south texas.

You need to check you javelina facts there buddy, I know javelinas and they exist in places other than Mexico and Texas. Next you Texans will claim you invented Chinese food, NY pizza and Baseball.

yes... they exist in mexico and along the border.so .. new mexico.. maybe arizona... western louisiana...
south/central america as well.

Unless you're talking feral pigs.

they're everywhere.. well.. I've never seen them in places with harsh winters.

Razor backs, boars, feral pigs are not ... javelina/peccary.

Again, I know I can't change texas... just sayin.. they don't have peccary in europe.

I think I will research ridiculous claims made by texas though.. thanks for the idea. Texas texas uber alles... uber alles in der welt..

They exist in my front yard hence my screen name (javelinadave).
Remember the SNL skit about Da Bears? Two weeks late I see Da Boys stickers and shirts for sale. Stolen logo that I'm sure the thief said he thought of it in a dream after eating TexMex which is actually MexTex.

yea.. but big european boars are considered "manly" in some circles... peccary (AKA JAVELINA!).. never.
Wasn't texmex texmex when texas was mexico?
Anyway.. this all started when I read the wrong guy's location.. so its a problem all across the border... the confusing razor back and peccary.

I do like this texas fact...

I installed a set of Front Runner Gull wing windows today so that I can get my Portlandia food cart operation going. Swedish meatballs anyone?

Installed a new Mantec "raised intake". Sealed all the connections with copious amounts of silicone so now I don't have to worry about dunking it. The piece between the interior plenum and the actual duct had a 1" hole in the bottom of it that I sealed up. Is there supposed to be some type of flap on that hole or is it just a drain? Is there a replacement part that is sealed or is it just something you have to deal with?

Maybe use the same kind of spit valve that is on the bottom of the air intake for the heater or is on the bottom side of the air filter for a V8?
The hole may be for draining any condensation that develops?

This is a nice historical write up:

What I"did" today...

Sad day...My driveway is such that ice accumulates all winter due to little southern exposure and it has been raining so it is wet as well. As a result I hit the classic (waiting in the driveway to be towed for coil conversion) with the 110 coming back from running an errand - driving the 110 since the DD (Classic) is inop. As I turned the wheel to go left of the Classic it slid straight in. The 110 faired ok, the Classic is a different story. Now, what the Classic needs pretty much represents more than I think I want to invest. Coils, bushings, windscreen, and now fender and bonnet (and a weird acceleration issue when cold). Sad day...undecided what I will do...probably sell the Classic on (or part it) and buy something boring as a DD, like an AllRoad or something.

Technical content: body work.

Oh that just plain sucks!
I live on a dirt road. In winter the ground can be frozen even it's warm enough to rain. Result is a Zamboni quality skating rink.

Installed new seat bottom foam on both sides. Thanks Zack!!!

Super easy and inexpensive. 20 year old foam was just disgusting.

Pulled covers off, washed and reinstalled
