Default Phil's New Year's EVO

She's home and in the garage. Searail couldn't get her started to put her on the truck yesterday, and they said Jan 3rd was the next possible truck... so we made a snap decision to go up to Edmonton and get her.

William met us there, but it was getting late by then, and all stores were closed. We tried drying the plugs and boosting/swapping the batteries, but to no avail. It was COLD last night too... my wife had to work this morn so she headed back to Calgary and William picked me up at my hotel at 8AM (on a Saturday morn!). We went back to the car, armed with some battery terminal misc (so I could swap in a Yellow top) and some new plugs. After I put the new parts in, she fired right away!!

GIANT thanks to William for sticking with it, and getting me around town, esp after my ride left. He went above and beyond, and far exceeded any obligation/responsibility he had to me... I'm happy to say the car is now home, and is even better than I had hoped, from what I've seen so far.

This is the third that William has brought in for me, and it won't be the last!

Here's a blurry garage shot, just to prove it's home...


More pics to follow soon, when I start a build thread. Gotta go get the Pajero ready now for a New Year's Day snow run tomorrow!

Happy New Year's EVO everyone and HUGE PROPS to William for looking after me once again!!!

Nice! I bet it feels good to finally have it in your hands. I also approve of that cute little guy in the bottom left

Glad you got it home Phil and it got sorted out with enough time to enjoy our new years. Cold is right, still freezing from last night / today

She is a real beauty, no doubt. Can't wait to see it all cleaned up.

Well done William! And, that's great to see Phil. Another happy story. Post photos when you can.
I didn't know Edmonton got cold... Its been cold here in Nagoya too. It got down to -1 last night...lol. Honestly, there are a lot of things I miss about Edmonton, but the cold weather isn't one of them.

Wow, looks awesome, can't wait for a build thread!

+1 for William helping out, giving my bro a huge hand with some tire issues he's having.

Kudos for William for helping out so much. Love the dog...It's almost like he was added in afterwards. Love the car as well. Definitely a nice collection you have going on there.
