Thinking about scrapping spare Subaru engine for build money. No scrap places are open today, anyone know what I could get for ~200 lbs of aluminum?

200$ maybe. You'll have to pull all the aluminum heads block ect from everything steel or they probably won't give you *** much. I'd call and ask. And idk if you'll get 200 out there cuz I've only been to flint scrap yards and there is a lot more competitors

It's all in pieces anyway lol. Only steel is bolts, rods, cams etc. May try to sell it yet.. Dunno. I know all these parts I have are expensive but I sure as hell don't have the time for a buggy build. Would rather have some bumpers on the Heep, unless they aren't gonna give me **** for it all.

Started tearing apart the jack Jason gave me. Don't know if I can make it work again, lots of it is pressed together in a permanent fashion. Couldn't spend any more time on it tonight.... Came home to find the mower leaked gas all over the garage, which filled the basement with fumes. Not good.

Well, I need to make up for some lost income from this past week, so my winch and my rear tire carrier are up for grabs....

Gave the camper a test run in Atlanta this weekend. If you look close in the pic, you can see snowflakes. There was a dusting on the ground this morning. Good news is everything in the camper worked fine, more or less. There's a few things I want to tweak. Heat kept us nice and warm, but is noisy as all hell. Toilet has a small leak somewhere at the fresh water inlet. I need to fix the table and inside shower hose.

Ordered a new steering stabilizer for the 2005 today to replace the leaking skyjacker unit. Also ordered some BS for the camper.

Considering upgrading the front trackbar to get rid of my raised axle mount / drop pitman arm to eliminate bumpsteer.

They say a WJ swap takes care of that too
