Ze Ugly

A couple of days back I mentioned that our car needed a lot more work than we originally thought. Here's the terrible list of things that are broken:
  • The shock absorbers are completely shot.
  • The brakes are gone. That includes the hoses, the pads and the discs.
  • The engine is losing oil, which means the shaft seals need to be replaced.
  • The water pump is broken.
  • The generator is about to give up the ghost.
Fortunately we've picked up a new sponsor: HSW Autoteile. Not only are we getting all the necessary parts from them at cost, they're also giving us an excellent deal on the work they need to do. But that's not all! They're also throwing in a box of the most important replacement parts. For free!

All in all it's a pretty sweet deal. The car is being worked on as we speak, which means our chances of actually reaching Mongolia are currently increasing by the hour.
