Feeling Like Christmas

This was Crsmp5 (burnt toast) original idea, I thought I should promote it to it's own forum as it is has been so popular.

Yea interesting on "No doors".
That original posting of yours had over 5000 views on it more than any other post, that's why I decided to promote it.
It will also be easier and quicker for me to get to post so lets see how it goes.
I am hoping over the next few months to add some new stuff I have been collecting waiting for winter to set in so I can work inside.

Happy holidays

Not very Christmas like here in eastern Pennsylvania. All the snow has melted over the last 3 days of rain and temperatures approaching 70F. The ground is a swamp everywhere, y don't dare step or drive off the pavement.
Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 30's, we could use a good freeze to make the mud easier to deal with.
My Kub is doing great though, it's been about 15,000 miles since the restoration, it's been a pretty reliable driver.

Andy with the polished one is pretty comfortable working on the injection pumps, he's resealed quite a few of them.

yea.. i know i wanna visit him for the glass guy... i worry bout dislodging the silly shim.. if i do then it gets crunched it ruins the pump... so pay 1k or ball up and do it myself... i got uk contact now.. missing door kubvan guy.. he just brought 4 rover pumps back... sittin here in ohio looking for owners.. :D $425 shipped.. so i guess if i screw up one from him is still less then paying to have mine done... i just hate the cost of screwin up..

kinda want a "expert" to over look what im doing 1st time out... to catch me screwin up if i were too.. pluse i can ask whats that for type of questons..
