8920 The Mail Order GP

Postby Michael C » Thu Jan 05, 2017 3:23 pm

My wife has been joking that, with all the parcels containing GP & related items that seem to arrive on our doorstep, I'm building a 'mail order jeep'.

Today was no exception: a nice heavy parcel this time, with four reconditioned shock absorbers for the GP.

Sounds like Radar from The TV show MASH sending a jeep home piece by piece.

Glad to hear it's coming along.

Well, Danny, the trailcam images are kind of like watching grass grow .... in winter. Lots of little things happening, like assembling the gear box, transfer case and so on, but nothing major. You'll see what I mean with the following images ...

Those pictures are really boring Mike.... Maybe you could dance around in your kangaroo costume every fifth frame or so to lighten things up??

I did say it was like watching grass grow, so you were warned!

(And I only wear the Kanga suit in the house - that tail gets in the way in the workshop.)
