Episode 8: Driving The Impossible – Peking to Paris
“The first time we didn’t know what we couldn’t have known.” quips Chris, a veteran of the rally. He returns to Beijing with Derek and Kurht in June 2019 with a new strategy. The novice teams fly to England to meet the organizers.
Meet the Olivares Family, owners of Sand Rail Fabrication, and builders of some of the best off road machines and roll cages in the US. Derek takes on the job of rebuilding the carbs and shares why he became a mechanic.
No detail in the rebuild of the car is overlooked. K&H upholstery is commissioned to rebuild the seat to original specs and Richard is hired to rebuild the engine to increase performance and minimize failures.
