I'd say that's between you and your DOG.

Passing off road is a no no? Damn I've been doing it wrong for at least 45 years then. I thought that passing everyone was the point!

I will start using turn signals to indicate I am ALLOWING you to pass, not that you are passing me. If I don't get them installed, just consider me flipping the bird to be a signal that I am allowing you to pass.

Please don't puke in trail when you get past me tho, you dog?

I puked one time, I think it was allergies, drainage made me nauseous, and the blistering pace that I run would make anyone puke.

I need to get around to pulling the CEL codes (intermittently on, but ehhh) and probably swap the shocks and check the plugs and air filters (cabin and interior). Most annoyingly, the hitch mounting points on the body are totally rusted out as seen here:

Damn! I can't say that I've ever seen a Astrofari rusted that bad under there and with all my bone yard picking that's saying a lot. I zoomed your first pics, I was thrown off on the year by what looks like paint coming off the mirror arm, making me think it was the older thinner arms.

Reading the codes is easy.



Use a paper clip or similar to jump A to B
Turn the key to the on position
Engine light will flash once short pause then twice (12) three times
Then count the flashes to acquire the codes, it will always be first of two numbers, short pause then the second number
Example 5 flashes pause 2 flashes = 52
When done it with flash 12 three times again

Rear shocks are pretty easy, PB Blaster and some heat may help.
Front shocks on RWD vans, I've always had to break the top of the shock's piston rod off. I use an impact socket and a breaker bar. Push down on breaker bar, rotate, push down, rotate, push down. Pretty quick actually.

Spark plugs are done through the wheel wells, remove the splash guard and they are a straight shot between the body and sub-frame. I use a about 18" worth of extensions with an impact universal joint just behind the socket to make the job easier.

No Astrofaris ever had cabin filters. I'm partial to Amsoil air filters, dry and re-useable.

Check the RPO codes in the glovebox, see if you have a G80 (limited slip rear diff). If it doesn't have it, I highly recommend swapping one in. Really helps these vans get around in the snow and off-road. I get mine from LKQ, cause they can be had for $126. Usually found on the AWD vans.

I have known John a long time. We have had many discussions involving politics. He has influenced some of my thought and I think maybe vice versa. The thing that separates John from most liberals is his willingness to be open about what he wants. Also, John is not a hard core socialists/fascists/statists/wannabe dictator more commonly encountered. Not even sure I would call him a liberal, more of a libertarian with an expanded view of the social safety net.

Nodabs, Nonubs. Tomato, Tomatoh.
It is kind of funny, the Nodabs is because I am a trials guy. Nonubs is just making fun of the fact that I am missing a part of a finger on my left hand.
It is hard to be ridiculed because of a vicious accident.
I was working at the St. Louis Zoo as a feeder for the tigers. We had one particular Siberian that one day took a liking to my left hand. I hope it was the best meal that he ever had.
Or I could just be telling a tall tail, hard to tell the difference.

I had no idea that Nonubs was digitally challenged. I just try and butcher everyone's screen-name and Nonubs came to mind. I think it all worked out quite well.

My buddy in OKC, his lady friend lost a part of her pinky trying to separate his two bitch dogs during a fight. The dogs are Dachshunds. They never found the tip of the pinky. I think the dog ate it. He had to buy her a press on prosthetic. I have heard of Press-On Nails, but not entire fingers.

Not sure which story is better, Dachshunds vs. Tiger, but they're both good stories.

My politics are complicated. I took a test, it said I was a left leaning Libertarian. I would agree with that. I came to realize that the Left/Right paradigm is all part of the Rothschilds NWO plan. Keep us fighting each other and we won't have time to fight them. I'd bet $100 all of us on here have more in common than not.

I think Paul might of just paid me a compliment. One of the few I have received on ADVRider. Thanks Paul.
