The other wonder mechanical genius my 88 Trooper

Still waiting for parts so I get another habit

Well im waiting on parts so I can get the carb conversion kit in. So i had picked up a trailer for 400 $ and it came with a boat, right? Well i took the boat out and floated it today , well I actually motored around in it a bit. Its about 95 % done , I am waiting for some stuff from EBAY like a small stereo... and my fishing rod holders A trained eye will notice a change in the motors I went from a 6 hp to a 7.5 hp in a trade for an SKS I had lol got to love guys who like classics. :chef: and with out further adieu heres the 1 weeks worth of hour workdays compressed into a short playlist
So with the interior lights being fubar'd ever since I bought it . I have decided to do something about the nonworking lights.

Next is an anderson plug for my fridge . Summer is coming :ylsmoke:
i really should do that in the future . these were cheap ,available , and already in my piles of assorted electronic crap . ive had to rethink my plans since i blew up the Pavement Princess . I think i have a plan.. But first a trip to Kamloops to get my muffler replaced. The darned thing blew apart down the seam, on the way to Kelowna. Its about 4 months old So I'll have a few words with them about materials quality :exclaim: And i wanted to go ice fishing...
Gutting the old crap out of the way, now I have a shiny Weber in there. lots of space for a spare battery now.. and a space for a something or other when i turf the Cruise Control that dont work

Carried on the gutting of all the useless stuff under the hood. Got rid of the Cruise Control sputnik and some more EFI stuff thats no longer being used. I got the tachometer working according to Johnny5ives video vice Shooters instructions. Still waiting for the rad for my Rodeo [in on monday ] but i can run it as is now, with caution. Parts to make the Trooper's auto trans are also in the mail be here in a week or so.
