Thanks! that brings us up to last weekend since May. Lot of work done, a lot more to go before another big trip in Feb.

What we're riding depends on where we're headed!

I have a ktm950 for camping/exploring/adventuring, a husqvarna te310 for singletrack slaying, and a gasgas txt300pro for trials.

My dad rides a ktm 950, husqvarna 250 2t or 4t depending on his mood, and a montessa trials.

we have a lot of fun

For the trials bikes! And awesome build!
You MUST MUST MUST get an EGT gauge before you tow in the hills again! I cracked a piston on mine doing a long uphill on cruise control @ 12k lbs not even towing my trailer that day. After I replaced the motor, I put in a egt gauge. I was shocked how quick it went up. At a steady 12 lbs of boost, egts will go over 1300 degrees easily.
The vans don't have an intercooler like the pick ups. Careful-tunes are made for trucks.
I don't know why Ford went back to sealed beam headlights. My 95 has pretty darn good capsule headlights-but even our 2003 Ford van at work has the old style lights.

Love Huskies. I raced a '73 and a '75 400 for the better part of a decade. Won many, many races with them and could not wear them out.

Thanks everyone. it's been a fun project so far.

Question? why can't I edit or delete any of my posts? Apparently I posted twice a couple times.

Gracias.

Its anything but durable. It ends up being nothing but a mess and a waste of time. An expensive waste.

But yes- very KICKASS bus!!

Yup.

Never paint it over anything you care about, though. It leaches through to the paint underneath and causes discoloration.
I have a friend who literally "dips" his $30,000 car every two weeks. I think he may be addicted to the fumes or something. But I've seen my fair share of "dip" and I'm not a fan.

interesting... I plastidipped some of the dash pieces on the DEV.. mainly because my phone and such wouldnt slide around.. then I did it to some exposed A/C ducting and it stopped the condensation on the outside of the pipes when I run my custom dash air on deep freeze..

I was digging the stuff!
