Sometimes leaks are good. My under side is oily but it has NO rust.

Just been trying to ignore the problems with the Eagle and have some fun lately.

Here are some pics for you guys to enjoy before I come back and pick your brains about some issues I'm having.

Took a cruise out at Stanton Creek. The primitive camping area you can drive to inside the park. (Glen Canyon National Recreation Area)





And debuting new plates! :) I was worried about this but some people have been calling in SOAR EX 4 rather than the SOAR BY 4 I was intending. Oh well.

I love that last shot, on top of the rise looking down on the hood.  That rack looks like rocket launchers!

I have not been around here much, but came back today to see how things were going. It is nice to see your SX4 on the road again! I have been crazy busy working on these Mercedes-Benz Diesels, and have been on those forums. I don't have an Eagle anymore, and I sure do miss having one. One day maybe I will get another one.....Rich

Right...surely you can fit a Mercedes Diesel in an Eagle! And yes, I'm very happy to have it on the road. It still needs some things, but for the time being I'm just ignoring them! :)

Well my plan was to take the frame from my old SX4 and stretch it 14" so it fits under a 300D body. I know it will have nothing Eagle on it, but the frame did spend it's entire former life under an Eagle. ;D
