Brings me to today.

Picked up two prices of 3/16 steel. 13X62

Making some mini boatside rocker guards.
Still need to do some cutting and then weld/sand. Got one side done




what a day.


Im so tired and only got one side down. I may be rolling with one for a while unless i sack up and just power through it.


let me tell you it was a pain welding these up. I did it in about 12 passes per edge so 24 total. I did get a chance to get some good practice in though..

Here is the results and final pics!


Best i could do with flux core action


Bleh that took forever


And here we go all sanded nice and smooth



And the final look!

Got the other side almost done. Got some paint on the first one and have it mounted for good.




Sure beats paying 499 for these that i copied the idea from

Thanks!

The lights came from Dealextreme. 26bucks shipped for 20 of these LED bricks.
They came with 3m tape on the backside and 2 little tabs to use screws.

Said F kilby and made my own alternator pulley. Went to the local mower shop and got a v belt pulley that fit perfect agianst the serp pulley and the hole lined up that i was able to fit a socket in it to hold it centered. checked it for runout and welded it to the serp pully.

Now i just need a tank.

Made some tube fenders today. Pretty simple but still took a while to get the cuts done. They are not finished. The side and the top will be skinned with 3/16 and welded and blended in to look like a solid peice.

I wanted to keep the inner fender so i did them this way.

Another giant lapse in updating..

got the side plates welded in. Had a bad headache so only got that far just sitting inside on the couch now veggin out.





Made it through the mini rubicon and over the giant rocks i never attempted in my blazer.

Made it over a few other crazy lines.

Made it up the steep part of the alamo that my blazer made once, BARLEY and the other time broke my driveshaft.... Needless to say i walked up it.

Jeep is doing excellent.

bought a "broken" 2hp oiled compressor off craigslist with dual 2g tanks for 40 bucks.

Cut the tanks off and split them up. used a tank, the regulator, gauge, and water seperator and stuck em in and hooked em to the york.

Pulled compressor head off and found the reed valves were sideways, put em back in place and now compressor works awesome. So made a bracket off my 20g garage tank and stuck that on there. It is a ton better than my old setup.

Loaded up for camping/con with family




I was actually able to fit all my crap and had some room left over. I think I am gonna make a little trailer for quads, and to fit stuff on there instead.


One thing that happened on this trip is halfway in the loon side I got out to look around and looked at the front end for some reason and saw that one of he u joint caps on the driver side axle was halfway out of the ear. Looks like the snap ring fell out. I haven't done the full circle clips yet. So I puled the shaft out and took a keyring and cut it into a half circle and put it back together. Worked like a charm and I was able to wheel into lil sluice and back without an issue.

Also helped a guy that broke chromoly shaft in his locked d35 rear on just 33s. Found him at around 330pm he had been out there since 9am. He couldnt get the c clip off the broken stub or get the locker out. So i got that out for him in a few mins and watched him do other things the hard way before we left. He wasn't the smartest

Here is my Rubicon trail fix.

Stock clip on left, modified cut keyring on right.




Pulled the axles and ground out the yokes to fit full circle snaprings. So should no longer be an issue.
