Hey Fflintstone, long time no here! Just thought I'd stop by to say hi.

I love that Honda your kid rides. I used to commute on a Honda XR-650L and was an awesome bike on the trails.


In case you're wondering, Paint is Krylon Ultra Flat Olive Drab Part# 4293

Nice to here from you! I don't get any feeds from you on facebook.
I have had an XR250L and then an XR600 R that I turned into a supermoto once I got my KTM.

I am really hoping to do a lot of riding with him this spring. and spring is coming. we have had two days above freezing in a row. (snowing now!) I was outside in a T-shirt yesterday! last week I went to work twice at -23 and once at -13!

Love the bikes. My mom hates motorcycles, so when I was 13, I bailed hay on my Gfathers farm. Saved every penny. Bought my own XR100 at the end of that summer. My mom was pissed but my Grandfather was so proud that I busted my *** and worked for what I wanted.
Have a great time riding w ur son.

I ordered my stainless brake line kit and new flex lines as well.
I just have to find the time to put them on.
while I have it on the hoist I am going to spray some rust converter on the frame and undercarriage. I ordered a gallon of corroseal from homedepot. just waiting for that to arrive.

I still need safer tires and nothing worth wile has been coming up used on CL. a local company has some new 33 12.50 15s for $750 OTD and for only $10 more they have 35's! I just need some cheap steel rims if I am going that route. my jeep would look killer on 35's but even as little as I wheel I think that would help grenade the stock axles.

I have been looking for some 16" steel crown vic rims and was going to run a 255 85 16 mud tire, but I can't find cheap steel rims in either size to save my ***.

my new toy!

just spent the weekend picking up my 94 RMW. I drove down to Virginia to pick up a rust free example. I really hate rust.

pretty much blew all my booze and hooker money to buy this so unless I sell some other toys it is going to be nothing but little repairs and upgrades for a while. the only thing "broken are the rear window struts. I will have the wife glue up the edges of the headliner and the missing clips on the drivers door.

I have to find and unplug the air compressor for the self leveling shocks. the PO had new KYB shocks put on the rear and the lines are just sitting there.

so here is my wagon:










and here is the money shot. the reason I drove 1800 miles this weekend.















I really only plan to put rims and tires, a CV sway bar, modern head unit, light window tint and maybe a cold air intake on it. it will be one of my summer only cars.

today at the parade.

the jeep has been sitting on the back burner while I try to get my vintage convertible on the road but I drug it out for a local family days parade today.
a friend from church is the photographer/editor for the local chain of newspapers and posted these pics to facebook. my son had his friend over so he got to throw candy out to the kids too.

I am doing my public service message here. please remember common safety when working on our toys be it ford dodge or GM.

I was in ER all night and some of the morning due to a friends car slipping off the jack stands and partiality crushing my side. they say God looks out for fools and drunks, and I have to say it was true. I should not have had any part of my body under the car while he was repositioning it. thank God for his watching over me. fortunately no broken bones but multiple contusions and abrasions. it felt like my ribs separated from my sternum. despite two Vicodin I still cant get to sleep.

so they say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I still don't like it when other people copy my idea.

I almost didn't notice the jeep in the background,

found an old pic

I haven't been on in a while and my jeep is still hibernating for the winter but I found a pic of the first jeep I owned, just after wife 1.0 and before the digital age.

enjoy:

good news on the jeep front

I haven't really been using the jeep much in the last two years. the tires are really starting to dry rot and I just don't have the spare $1000 for wheels and tires. not to mention the brake lines look pretty scaly.
well I had two good things happen in the last week.

First we spent the weekend cleaning out the basement. I found my 9 slot Willys jeep grill, so this summer I can graft it into the TJ grill. along with the grill we found my half doors, I was worried they were destroyed in fire # 2. It looks like the inner panels were moist likely gone but at least I have the half doors & uppers.

The second bit of good news is I sold a van I had bought to flip and made enough money to buy wheels and tires for the jeep.

I had already bought new stainless brake lines and rubber lines and my BFF is coming up to visit in two weeks and we are going to get the jeep back into full working order.
