What did I do to my Ural today? Well, I handed over a bunch of money to the Previous Owner, took possession of the signed title, rolled it off the back of the hauler's truck and pushed it to the top of my driveway.

Loaded it on to my trailer and took it in the the shop to get a list of things fixed.
1. Leak at the rear drive.
2. Leak at the alternator
3. Leak on the steering damper
4. Low fuel light out
5. Neutral light out
6. Parking break fixed
I told the shop to fix the leaks and if the parts for the other things are not in before the weekend I will pick it up and bring it back when the parts come in.

That's quite a list. Seeing the mention of "fuel light" I assume one of those new fangled 2014-2015's.
Where did you bring it?

Took an old avionics control panel knob from work, drilled it out, and epoxied a whittled-down spare key inside to make my gas tank "tool box" more convenient to access. I plan to leave the "key-knob" in the lock until such time as I leave an item of value in the 'box. Then I'll just lock 'er up and throw away, er, stow away the key-knob!

Had a pretty good selection of knobs from which to choose, too!

Also had some rub-on transfer letters, so I went ahead and labeled which position is locked and which is unlocked, since I have a "goldfish" memory.

Simple, easy, and I'm pleased with both the looks and convenience.
