Yes going classic plates soon I hope plan for now is to just keep it all stock, already have the manifold tubes and check valves, just need to put them on, one side has a copper wire holding the check valve to the tube, leaking like an sob!

You were correct Marn! Had a long chat with a nice lady at the DMV a couple weeks ago.

A good old leo friend did the VIN inspection (so I wouldn't have to drive cross town to the DMV and risk a breakdown in the untested truck) so that's done.

Got insurance today, a whopping $13 a month more!

This time next week I should have the classics plates on it.

Still have a few things that need to get done before I can go wheel it or go very far from the house haha, tires, brakes (front at least), radiator (leaking when hot above the lower hose), and the left outer tie rod is worn out bad. But it should be fun for now to roll around the neighborhood!

Maybe I should use your rig as the inspiration for the next model I build?

Awesome! But I'm afraid you'd have to cut some rust holes in a few places and splatter some rust on the white steelies!

Man you're good. I built models most of my childhood but I've never been able to get results as realistic as that. I could make them look like new but not old like that. I tried mud once but I couldn't get it to look like what I pictured in my head.
Nice work

Spent 3 hours at the DMV today and finally got my "classic vehicle" plates, no smog checks for the truck, forever. (unless I drive over 5,000 miles in a year)

Haven't posted on this thread in a while because, well, I haven't done much to the truck in the last few months. When I bought it I promised myself I wouldn't dip into any real money, and have a separate Jeep truck money stash . I've been able to do that so far and I'm ready to buy some new stuff!

The official first trip to the gas station went great, almost gave an old lady a heart attack at the gas pumps when I fired it up to leave then when I got home about an hour later after it was parked, some of the tires were almost flat. Well time for some new tires! I'm going to put some new tires on my TJ and put those on the truck (same size), they're only a couple years old with lots of tread left.

Currently compiling a list of stuff to buy, should be a fun May!
