It was 4 days before the OVLR summer rally. I had been going over the Land Rover, topping off all the lubricants and greasing what could be greased when I noticed the front frame bushing had torn out of the frame. There was no way I could get it repaired in the time I had, so I resigned myself to go in my Honda, and come home and find a welder to have the repair done. Al came to the rescue and offered to do the welding after work on my way up. He does excellent work and I was really fortunate to have him offer to help me out. Al was a real life saver.
