    Reptar - Previously known as The Green Machine.

    Just traded the race truck for a vehicle most of you are familiar with.


    Rawrr












    ^ After 4 hours of cleaning. Round 2 tomorrow... Then as soon as I get the highboy back on the road I'll be able to tear down Reptar to do some under-side clean up. I need to be able to eat off any part of the suspension or axles. The ocean took it's toll on the pretty-ness so it's time to be pretty again now that it's away from the ocean.
    Other than tearing it down and putting it back together all shiny and new, I really don't have any plans as far as modifications go. Max set it up very nicely.
    I might do something with the rear to bring it up to par with the front... and I might change the cargo area just a little bit so I can sleep in it. Nothing better than being able to sleep in your truck on the trail.

    I'll be starting on little things tomorrow. It has a gnarly exhaust leak so I need to track that sucker down. Both pinion seals are leaking, rear latch is broken, can't get the darn hood open, and some other real minor things. Should be in tip top shape soon!

    Reptar will be seeing just about every northern california trail along with a lot of nevada desert. And a lot of malls. Those curbs don't crawl themselves.

    You need to fix a tail light too! Think it's the passenger side.

    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.
