Well its been a long weekend... I am happy to announce that at 10:45PM tonight I was able to get it started. Fired on the first attempt after purging the injector lines. http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a135/lateapexsti/?action=view¤t=IMG_0964.mp4

All that remains is to finish bolting up the fenders, hood, and replacing the "good" steering box that leaks out fluid faster than i can pour it in.


Hey Sean, Great to meet you and the gand from Defenderville. The rigs looked great and I wish I could have stayed more and "inspected" each.... I saw the video and seems Felicia did more than organize the tools, she had the magic touch that started the truck on first crank!!

Great to meet you guys,

Tom

Hey Tom,

It was great meeting you as well. We had a great time this weekend and so far there have been no problems with the new Rig. Hopefully we will run into you soon as we are just down the street in Los Altos, or at a upcoming event.

Felicia, Mike, Bill, and my wonderful Fiance Elizabeth made it possible for me to make it to this years event. I cannot thank them enough!

Saw your rig also Sean; but didn't get the chance to check it out; so many things going on @ the annual, Bill Burke, dinner, raffle...

Next time - hope to join you on the trail w/your D90.

All the good folks of "Camp Defenderville" ;-) team effort and I would love to come down and visit the shop and turn some (properly organized) wrenches... Cheers, Tom
