People in Seattle just park wherever is convenient I noticed lately and then flash there emergency blinkers.
You'd go insane over here Defender. Parking legally is lost in the UAE. So long as they are not blocking a fire hydrant it's generally fair game.

^^^Did you have the seats redone or did you do some used ones?^^^

I got all my parts for my rear end rebuild now. Just have to schedule the job with my old man's buddy.

I also got a new Rancho SS. I had a Tenneco SS for about a year and it already wore out. Night and day difference in going over bumps. Now that is goes smooth over the bumps it feels almost sports car like


The new Rancho is pure beef

Yeah I went to Dubai and Abu Dhabi a few times and had noticed laws as far as vehicles and driving were not much enforced reminded me of Russia.

I just got some new "nightshade" and am currently waiting on it to dry.

I removed and masked off the yellow and clear areas of the tails. I did some light sanding on them using 2000 grit wet dry just to lightly scuff.

Only am doing one nice light coat. I do not want or need some flat black unsafe tails but did wanna give my ZJ some "swagger" something for it since I been spending a lot of time on my Q45.
