So now what is the plan for this incredible machine that you have built? Are you planning on keeping it and then eventually being buried in it? Or is it going up for sale and you will be moving on to the next project?

I have about 10 shows booked for this summer .. so seat time Smile
I also have some mags interested in shoots .. so we'll see on that ? I have my 2WD (supertoy)I want to get in next , so if the Trekker dosnt sell , then it will ultimatly become my tow rig for the 2WD to more shows .. which was my original plan !

I have had some offers to buy .. just to low yet to sell

Well, I hope you keep it and have a chance to enjoy all of that work you did over the past few years. I have no idea how you would even come up with a price for something like that when you have put the amount of time in as you have.

thanks ..
yeah I dont have to sell .. I have just had a few people inquiring to buy !

did a second show
west side daze in West Kelowna ..
First hiway trip .. it's not real far from home , so this was a good thing .. didnt have a good nights sleep , as I was thinking of all sorts of problems .. but alas .. she ran flawlessly

arrived at 9AM and started to set up







Trekker got great acceptance , but again .. most people didnt know what it was , they just thought it was a ~ truck with a canopy !!

some interior shots for you ..

My Vid camera ran out of batteries though .. so sorry no "moving vids" this time ..

so calculated my fuel economy this evening .. from this last trip , I avereged 24 MPG .. I know the tires throw the speedo off ,and all that stuff .. so I guess I will have to calculate it from a " map" milage .. to get a more accurate # ..

I also noticed some "belt squeel" so I ordered the URD pulley to replace the stock one .. it should add 1-2 lbs of boost as well

so I have decided not to put the URD pully on just yet .. but I did want to change the oil in the nose , so a little "how to" or how I did mine .

locating the oil plug is the first thing .. on the second gen (black supercharger) is is located on the front right of the nose just behind and below the hose bracket



I started by removing the bracket to allow more room



and proceeded to remove the plug



There are a few different ways to do this , I chose to use my brake line bleader



worked great , old oil removed





I removed 80ml of oil , so this is what I replaced
I used a IV style to do so



but it all back together , and tightened up the tensioner .. and DONE
