Default poking fun at models

I think I'll be OK, Bill. He has an avalanche, a wrangler, and a wagoneer which I craftily avoided. hehe!

Besides you should hear him tease me about having to turn down the welder when sticking stuff on my "thin" Toyota frame. *rolls eyes.* Toyota recovery vehicle" Jeep centerpiece at Easter dinner table...stuff like that.

Eh, we both have fun on the trail though.

Yeah just the front bumper. I don't see too many 80s that color, it's pretty cool. But how often can you get such a clean turbo system for an 80 in the US? You can always go down to Toyota and get the supercharger...

Your right I can...and if I need to warrantee it or replace a part I can always just go to Toyota again! I have ample power to crawl over the largest speedbumps at the mall! Now if it was a V-8 100 series.....Christos screamer sure is sweet!

Default damn

I wanted to make the meeting, but our 7 week old had different plans. When is the next one?

Anyone have any suggestions for a auto upholstery shop in town? My driver's seat is coming apart at the seam and I would like to get it fixed before it gets worse.

Did my first baselining of fluids on the 96 LC yesterday. New dino oil with Auto-RX and synthetic on the shelf for after the treatments, drained and filled 4 qts of new synthetic ATF, and pulled a huge bolt out of of of my BFG's and patched her up. Still need to find the rear knock sensor and clean it up to hopefully fix a CIL code. Then on the the diffs and/or birfs. Anyone doing their birfs soon?

Timm

meetings are always the first weds of the month. we do have the spooky night run coming up (29th iirc).

if you want to hold off a few months on the birfs, every spring we have a birfield packing party.
