It's cool. Besides, this way I can still blame my lack of activity on Imped for not answering his PM's...

Some of the newer non auto focus modes had a problem with the aperture lubricant getting on the blades, gumming them up. Had two do that. Nice F model. Had a cherry FII back in the day.

I may be mistaken, here, but I think that's either a converted CJ6 or a 5 with a rear stretch and some sort of custom top.
Its a Sno Ball CJ6. Special commission from the government in 1956 to be used by the Air Force and US Forest Services. I believe only 20 or so were made and only one remains today. Im sure if you get creative enough you can build one yourself. perhaps with a scrambler tub instead of a 6? either way, that thing is bad ***

The F is a September '68 edition, and belongs to my dad; Annabelle uses it a lot and gets some pretty nice results. I'd like to have an F2 at some point, but my current assets/efforts are dedicated to either finishing that enlarger, building a 5x7 field, or being allocated towards the sourcing of one of these.

Look at you being all knowledgeable and stuff! I'm going to pass that information along to the guy that originally sent the picture to me; he's got a JK, and - personally - I think this is a great look for that model Wrangler. Thanks for knowing what the hell is going on!

My general rule of thumb is to maintain enough weaponry to start a small war, and enough ammunition to finish it.

Be careful when you steal things; I know where you live. By the way...what'd you end up getting for Crimmus that came from the mall, along with the best Italian food ever..?

It's pretty funny to see people complain about lack of progress.

This thread was started less than a year ago. He has already made something no one else has with his deck cover. He, like most of us are on a limited budget. He also seems like the type of guy to do something right the first time and not piss away time and money rebuilding things 1,000 times.

Plus he, like myself, seems to have a kick *** woman in his life. It's hard to make an argument to work on your Jeep when there are more important things in life.

One of the reasons this thread is the monster it is - is that he is gracious enough to answer nearly every post - no matter how sidetracked to post may be.

Anyway, nice work.

I do try to get it right the first time, even though I'd change a thing or two about the deck...and I certainly have a hell of a good woman with me; that second part is by far the most important. Speaking of my Wonderful Wifey, we'll probably be doing some simple work on her LJ this weekend; perhaps it's time for that thread to start...?

I do thank you for the compliments and the understanding of my very limited budget. Hopefully some useful information and building will show up soon.

Ventilation is certainly allowed. Here's a response: That SUCKS, man. A person that steals presents on the doorstep should be consigned to The Special Hell...which - as we know - is usually only reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.
