Just stumbled upon the 404 pix archive within the RMM site, and thought the members might like to see some photos of my hunting Mog. It's an ex-Swiss Army '63 which I have enjoyed for the past four years. Each September we travel 2500 Km (round trip) from Gibsons -- just north of Vancouver -- to Prince George, in the centre of British Columbia, to acquire a Moose. Loaded with a small Quad, six weeks of supplies, and pulling the trailer on several 1000 metre climbs, the Mog averages 12.5 MPG (Imperial).
Cheers . . . .

This how we spend our summerholiday.
From dirty yellow to classic bleu in 3,5 weeks. With temperatures rising above 30 degrees celcius!
Almost finished, except for the wheels, the bottom and the inside of the cabbin. But our holiday came to an end.
So, much work left for next summer!

Thomas Ezendam comments: The picture in this message from David shows his oilpan. As the pump of the M130 engine sticks out more to the front he had to enlarge the oilpan. He just added room for another 2 liters of motor oil: 8 liters now.
