Re: The smoking lamp is lit..

Sounds like you found a guy who was very attached to his A1. He probably had some special sentiments for that truck and we all know how that goes. No amount of money can leverage that separation..

The smoking lamp is lit..

The Smoking Lamp Is Lit One of the more interesting aspects of MV ownership is the occasional visit from someone whose curiosity cannot be contained any longer or, they are simply seeking help with an older vehicle and believe this would be a good place to find it. Having a bunch of jeeps out front...

Re: WIZS M151 to Live or Let Die?

There is another option. In three words - Don't go overboard . As long as the body isn't in such a state that is ready to collapse in upon itself like some black hole, make judicious and necessary repairs to the mechanicals and enjoy it for a bit, as is. Rome wasn't built in a day. The joy of having...

Re: Source for 24 volts?

All due respect, I am not posting to argue with you George. I am merely trying to report that I have done (and will continue to do) the exact same thing we are discussing here, with no ill effect whatever. These LED lights just aren't asking much of the inverter. Now, if he said he was wanting to us...

Re: Source for 24 volts?

George, for his stated purposes he'll be just fine running off of one battery. I can assure you of that. I previously stated I do that very thing and there are no ill effects even if a parade lasts for hours (which most don't). If he's lucky enough to have a power inverter that will allow him to hoo...

Re: M3a1 goat pic. request

Two words...

Hearing protection.

Not because of the engine noise but because, if you need to have back surgery because of all that 'maintenance', you're never going to hear the end of it.

But seriously, you have yourself a keeper there. Congratulations!
