Apparently, the shroud is a fused piece - SA asked if he can drill holes in the bumper and screw it - charges are for some super glue and those screws. No separate labour charge for this.

I owe you big time for helping me with the fog.

What the...!!!


And with regard to the lamp that has been fixed using a screw, I do hope that it is not "screwed" onto the bumper itself but also has a nut at the back. Else the running will cause it come loosen itself.

Siddharth,

Jeeps have grease nipples for differentials and other lubricating points. I think they also have breather vents too. Water gets in through these holes into differentials.

Gypsies, do not have lubricating issues and hence, the water seldom enters the differentials.

I used to buy these kind of stuff in the military supply store near russel market. That 22-23 years back in my NCC days. Not sure that shop is still around.

I used to use this kind of shoe in my college life. I had few of them. I bought all this from Darjeeling. There this kind of shoe is very common.

sometimes if those grease nipples get jammed , its tough just to get the grease in , water getting in from the grease nipples? anyway sir, like u pointed out i guess we gypsy guys dont have to worry too much

jokes apart, I see no planned OTR for the next 2 weeks at least. I think people are done with OTR's for 2008 now as quite a few folks are planning vacation during the next week or 2.
Maybe if someone plans one, folks will fore sure join -- as iceman has mentioned.

PS: @PAVAN: just kidding man. Don't take the post seriously.

Cheers,

Heard during a recent OTR:
"Guys, you are not jerking together. Come on, jerk together "

I am, of course, referring to the synchronization of 2 4x4s trying to pull a stuck 4x4 out.

Dirty guys (like PP says; PP as in Porky Pig not THE PP)
