glad to see you making progress...I like the top gives it that early 70's dunebuggy look....all you need is a fat set of paddle tires in back...lol...but seriously...is the top aluminum? And altho I might not be seeing it correctly is it a multi-piece top, for easy transport and storage or did you just take it apart for cleaning and modifications...in the pics it looks like you used poprivits to put it together(the top)....and as fer as the plastic custom bumper mounted gas tank, im gonna have to sue you for that I have a patent on it...lol...I use an old 6gal boat tank as my temp tank...found it in a trash pile one day heck ran two of my trucks off it for almost 3 years...lol anyways last question...did you manage to get the glass for the top with it? if so there is a fella on close to the last page listed under "postal jeep parts(on ebay)" selling window gasket by the foot for cheep in strips up to 25 foot just thought you'd like to know...keep on jeepin on

Yep. all the holes are for the different farm accessories that could be bought back in the day.

All lights are LED (front,rear,side,dome) except the headlights, turn signal indicator and in the gauges.

On board bottle opener is mandatory There is also a Pepsi version that I will get and put on the other side.

Yep. No linkage. There is a master on/off switch and each motor had their own on/off.

It is my son's Power Wheel 6 volt jeep. Used to be red, but I painted it blue/gray with a black interior. Went to Harbour Freight and picked up some wheel barrow tires and modified them to fit...

Here it is when he first got it 5 years ago



Here it is with the new wheels



Cant find a recent picture of it now...
