Love the thread title. Glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor during this. Good luck! Subscribed!
Thanks. The name of the Jeep and the idea of a "flame off" restoration was suggested in the other thread.
Being the honorable man that I am... I stole it fair and square!
Today will probably be the last day for a bit working on the Tonka Jeep/Phoenix. We're expecting the first winter rain later this week and I really have been avoiding dealing with the garage. And I've just about stripped down what I'm tossing so it needs to get moved and tarped for the garage demo. After the garage is up I'll be able to do more with it.
I'll most definitely be around in other threads, but it may be a bit for an update in this one. I really want to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity to me. It has really lifted my spirits and believe me they were down! Thank you again so much. I've said it before but I am humbled by your friendship.
Looks pretty good from a distance!
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
Hey WindKnot, looks like your in Arizona? I have a couple parts jeeps (cj7's) if you need anything I'm down in Safford south eastern az. Axles old seats (needs upholstered) complete 4.2 leaf springs wheels except I'd also happily donate for your rebuild message me if you'd like to take a trip down and pick over my stuff
Wish I could just send ya a prefab garage. Like was said earlier, keep an updated list of stuff you need. I don't have many parts but I may have something you need. I'm glad to see your spirits are up and your going to rebuild the Tonka. Wish it was possible to have something similar to an Amish barn raising. The members here would have you back on the trails by Christmas. Love the thread title too btw.
Been out of pocket for several days. Not sure what to say. Man, I hate it for you. I can't even imagine. I will be keeping an eye on this thread and maybe I can help in some way. Dang, I just don't want to believe it. Your attitude is great and makes me want to work on mine.
Jack's expression in your first post pretty much sums it up. That is one determined dog that wants to move forward and get things done. Dogs often project the attitude (for good or bad, this case good) of the master. I would suggest you make him your assistant project manager/ram rod for the projects ahead.
