If you make hay while the sun shines as the old saying goes, you end up playing in the rain.

The Kit makes its presence known when it sees fit...

Hint: The more you look for it, the more it hides in the bushes.

Are you accusing me of sensationalism?

With just enough sightings to neither confirm nor deny its existence; in all seriousness I really do need to get that damned thing detailed and photographed and posted...I just keep not getting around to it.

I'm in agreement, here.

Believe it or not, it gets used every other day or so; I have to go through it once a week and re-provision/re-stock it so that it continues to be useful. If I was on the ball - and I almost NEVER am - I'd take one of those opportunities to create a photo spread.

I am almost 100% sure that I'm not you, but there's no real certainty in this life. We could be the same person; the universe is a very strange place.

See? Listen to Beasley...he knows what's up. Also, you're right: if my cameras were all up and running I'd have this thing photographed by now...and the funny part is that I just inherited a sodium vapor light and a 4x5 monorail that are functional but in need of rebuilding, so I have even more cameras that are not up and running, now.

I'm not sure that this is at "epic" levels, yet - that's usually Level 20, in 3.5 Edition, mind you - but I certainly appreciate the compliment and the inclusion in the dictionary. It takes a lot of XP to reach epic levels...and right now I'm just working on getting enough caps to order a cable shifter and my long-awaited stickers...and those are just two of the projects that have been happening at Muppet Underground, lately.

On that note: Last night I worked on yet another revised priority list - that was Spyder's fault - and I ended up with about thirty different items enumerated on the paper; everything from better cargo retention in the rear to extra fuel capacity, and from air filtration to ground clearance...with a shower somewhere in the midst it all. I've got a LOT of irons in the fire, and as this build continues to slowly move forwards I find that I have more and more work to do. I'm starting to see my progress to-date as having generated about 1/3 of a solid build, so the sensible focus is to start filling in the gaps and being able to spend a bit more time enjoying my work by taking it off-road...the latter of which is starting to be more possible because my back is finally feeling up to driving for more than 20 minutes at a time. I'm going to spend a bit of time today going over what I think I need to fixate upon for the next few months and what resources I have to draw upon, and then post that list up for public scrutiny and insult; I figure that with the always-welcome input everyone provides, I can get a solid plan in place for what Muppet Labs will be focusing on in the next few months. So...stay tuned.

This kit is really starting to remind me of The Silence. We all are super interested when its brought up, but as soon as we look away, we all completely forget about it. Slightly less terrifying than the Dr. Who version, as its not secretly running our lives..... Or is it?

About your back, do you have suspension seats? I didn't see any on your front page.

Excellent analogy! The Silence were only slightly less terrifying than the Weeping Angels. Especially when people would just show up with the marks all over themselves, keeping count...

Finally got to the end, long time reader, first poster to this thread.
Amazing.
Sundowner, your borderline OCD attention to detail is fantastic.
Many of your issues/solutions have assisted my build since I began reading many moons ago.
Since my wife really doesn't enjoy the Jeep as much as I think she should, I have to add my request for a detailed explanation of the mysterious "Girly Things Kit".
Not to mention, thanks to everyone else for the multitude of off topic discussions this thread has sparked. Guns, zombies, bewbs, Firefly, and on and on.

If you can wait about 16 hours, I have some old engine mounts sitting at home and I'll take some measurements for you.
