Now I've gone and done it.

Just couldn't resist these wheels/tires. 35" and cheap on eBay. Picking them up tomorrow. Now I wonder how much it will cost me to lift Hanky enough to be able to run them. I don't think the 6" I have now is enough. We'll see tomorrow!

Scoutco Products. Mustang Style rocker stripes

OK, thinkin' about this stripe for Hanky. The paint that I have for it is about this color too (hopefully it is still good after sitting on the shelf for um, like 10 years.).

Workin' Down Under

Whoo hoo! Got the Aussie in this weekend. Started on Friday and with Brian's help, it wasn't too bad. In about 4 hours, we got it out, the Aussie pieces installed and the carrier back in. On Sunday I put the axles back in, tested it and took it for a short spin. Seems to work perfectly. Can't wait to test it off road!

Cool, man.

The preponderance of evidence pointed to a thermostat malfuntion as the cause of my ruptured hose, boil over problem at Pinelands. So, yesterday I set about testing it. Pulled it out and did the kitchen pot method, along side a new one and sure enough, the old one didn't budge. There you have it. New one is now installed and we should be good to go.

Also gave Hanky a bath, since the rain washed most of the mud off anyway. Anyone have a good way to turn my now-gray tire sidewalls back to black?
