What happened to @PickleRick? I don’t feel like I’ve seen any comments from him lately. Wonder how his build is going

    You guys can keep this stuff up north.   We were in the 70s over Christmas break.  

    The snow/sleet started last night around 12am. It's supposed to continue until tonight along with 30 to 50 mph winds.  We are already at 6 to 8 inches here and a foot plus up towards the mountains. 

    I'm not getting anything done to the 4runner today. I'm close to a test run before I move to body work. 

    The engine and gauge cluster wiring took forever.  

    I picked up a 1991 mercrdes 300d 2.5 turbo diesel for the little ladies discovery.   I felt like I didn't have enough vehicles in the yard and I got it at a price I couldn't turn down.

    Headgasket on the disco began puking coolant the day before Christmas eve so on Christmas eve I was stuck installing new head gaskets and arp head studs on her v8. 

    With all machine shops closed and it being an emergency repair I trued the aluminum heads on a concrete block .   Not my idea of fun.  I bought us another  60 to 80000 miles to finish the 4 runner before a rover diesel conversion starts. I love completing repairs like a 1920s rural farmer.
