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

    I'd be up for that! Need to replace the accumulator and rotors/brakes on the RRC first...

    Sounds like a plan, I live 15 minutes away so I can make it for sure!

    A hour ago i had the idea of checking out the air filter. Maybe i could whack some dirt out of it...
    So I popped the hood and pulled the filter. Set it on the ground and half the Mojave desert poured from the filter onto my driveway. I ran for the air gun and shot air into the filter standing as far back as I could as I released the other half of the Mojave desert into nor-cal.
    I can't believe how much silt Max was able to pack in there.

    Just took it for a test drive and It feels like I did an engine swap! WAYYY better!!! I can't wait to test my MPG's again after I do some more tune-up stuff. I think I'll be maybe even near 15 now! haha
    I used to half to floor it just to get up a little hill by my house without dropping in speed, now half throttle does the trick. Still a gutless v8 but much better.

    A buddy told me my engine was moving all over in the engine bay so i checked my motor mounts out... one is ripped in half and the other looks like it's about to.

    And just fab'd up a nerf bar for the bumper so I can nerf my buddies in traffic again.

    Yeah, Max told me the motor mounts go pretty quick so he gave me two good ones just in case they ever failed.
    Just stopped by the Land Rover dealer ship again... they already know me...
    Bought a tiny little exhaust gasket for 28 freakin dollars.

    So tomorrow I get to do motor mounts and exhaust leak fix. Fun

    At least someone is not afraid to wheel it. Maybe PTSD from Calico.
    It just seems to be missing something from the truck. Just a little something missing. Hmmmm.

    Wheeling is lame, it's all about having 3 projects, but spending all your money on tools and having none left over to finish anything. Glad my hoopty is actually being driven, I was bored with it and have been for years, I'll drive it about as much now as I have for the last year.
    If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you have an electrical problem.
