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?

I'll probably call George tomorrow and see if there is some rubber part that goes in there that has desinagrated

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!
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

BULBLESS!! Yep. Was warm enough to do something today so I got around to replacing all lights outside the truck and now other than reverse and fog I have no more bulbs. LED all round now. Although one marker light doesn't work I have to chase down the problem with that sometime.

No worries. Mine is a mess too. Nice idea and cool integration. I've always used typical plates to mount d rings. Like the recess as I've caught mine on inclines before.

Not so rare. Once I had the disco lined up too.

Oh yeah I found a note on my seat in the series. Some guy wants to buy it.
