    I’ve been in brief contact with Greg at Boxeer. He made plans for a power steering pump last week. Hes sending them out to get cut on a CNC machine. Maybe we’ll have those parts in another 6 weeks.

    I also asked about DPF and all the plugs on the wire harness for it. He said not to install it and leave everything unplugged.

    Hes putting together a box of parts for us. Like exhaust flanges and throttle delete flange. Stuff to use for fabrication.

    The big tires looks sweet. Makes the whole van look bigger and more capable. The wheel well will need a little trim. Also thinking about trimming the lug studs shorter and going with closed end Porsche alloy lug nuts.

    This reminds me of a MOG , it’s gonna be a badass off-road machine.

    A type 4/bus high torque starter arrived today, compu-fire brand from empi. I need to find a tdi fuel filter assembly, euro 5 glow plugs, and a air to water intercooler assembly.

    Hopefully, that high torque starter will get it done with a Subi diesel. If Not, Andy turned me on to the VW Jetta TDI starter. That and an adapter from Rocky Mountain Westy, will get it done.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Been getting some conversion parts from Boxeer. Which means we can make some more progress. Power steering pump bracket is probably headed our way today. I need to get a 3.0 h-6 power steering pump now.

    Also been thinking about the new tablet type display. You guys should pick out whatever you like best. I’m thinking bigger is better? Probably mounted in the center of the dash or near the shifter.

    We usually use Apple products, will that run the software? I bet a normal size iPad would work.

    Yeah it’ll work on any devise. Bring one next time. We can do some mounting bracket research and/or make custom.
