Can't "Like" a post with those MV misfortunes, but good to see you posting.I went with "XM1027", but the project is gone. Lost everything last fall when the land under my storage unit got sold so someone next door could have a bigger parking lot, couldn't find a place to land everything so I had to write off $250K worth of vehicles, Tents, parts, spares, materials, and tools to save my financial future (still rent and have been trying to buy a house - can't have an "eviction" on the credit record right now). After the first M1009 Blazer got wrecked by a suicidal Uber driver (who I managed not to kill despite T-boning him while he blindly crossed 4-lanes of traffic in a Honda Civic), I went and bought another one in better shape, and was mid-rebuild on it. Had it stripped down for a full paint job - couldn't even land that so had to give it away for a dollar to save it being crushed. Set me back 20+ years, and about 95% of my capabilities - made me question whether I wanted to see another sun-rise...
The flip side is that the guy who bought the land for his big parking lot, runs a company which does paving and fencing serving the commercial real-estate industry in the S.F. Bay Area, he bought the land to consolidate two sites which were hemorrhaging cash - and that market is imploding now, so with luck he'll be out of business by the fall.
I'm basically out of MV for a few years at this point.
