I need to decide on some wheels and I really like the white I picked in the sunlight.


I definitely need to get the hood installed.
That is absolutely beautiful. Wow...

Do have a current tags for it?

^^^ Thanks Jim. I put on my permanent historic tags I had from TN just to drive it around the neighborhood. I am going to get it insured, titled and tagged sometime in the next few weeks. I've got a bunch of different things going on in the short term so I may wait until a lot of that has passed. I should be driving it around by mid-May with no problems.

You sure have been busy!! Yep the white looks very nice out in the sun. Mike are those seats pretty good for long rides on the trail? I've kept my eyes open for seats and with the price of new ones I'm thinking getting a set from the salvage yard would be the way to go.

Great job on everything.

Another Cleaning

Thanks guys. Yes Jim the seats are pretty comfortable and I like the extra lumbar support they have as compared to most seats.

People sometimes comment about how clean it always seems to be, I can assure you that I am not a clean freak. Every once in a while a good garage cleaning becomes mandatory. You have no idea how many of my tools are lost in limbo.


So while I had the Jeep out of the garage, I took the time to put away all my tools and give the garage floor and good once over with some Mr.Clean, water and my broom. I wanted to pull out the pressure washer but it was kind of buried and I was running out of daylight. Check out the difference in the color of the epoxy floor right at the garage door line. Kind of funny how the part out in the "elements" is better than inside the garage.

Absolutely stunning, Mike. Somehow, I would have expected a crowd in your driveway. I know if I was your neighbor, I would have been there! But then, you make beer, so I probably would have been there anyway!

Thanks. I miss my R1 too. I loved the torque and 2nd gear power wheelies. Ultimately, I would love to have a new track prepped R6.

Scott, you're welcome for a beer anytime. I actually did get a few neighbors to come over and take a look. I also got several from others as they drove by.

Oh Man, when Jim pulls out the poke stick it's serious.

I promise there will be pictures of the Jeep with the hood on by this weekend.
