It saddens me to realize that for the past several years I have been neglecting the Marks. I would throw half ass attention to them when I would have both the free time and motivation, which is a rare combo. I’ve got a list of maintenance to do so thinking I am going to shop this out soon and get back to enjoying them when possible. First up will be an Exhaust for Hyde, and then brakes for the Vert. Then hopefully a stereo upgrade for Hyde, and a new Top Motor and Hydraulics for the vert. Then new carpet for the vert. then….. the list goes on……. And on……. Neglect is the enemy. And I have been out of touch with the Mark VIII lifestyle.
