Actually, I have 4 10#ers in the shop. My FIL has been in the fire equipment service industry his whole life. I'm pretty well protected. As long as the mud-dobbers ain't got to them!

So you're coming to the swap meet? I thought you were setting up a craft table for the Folk Festival. You going to the festival too?


Windshied frame is painted. Wait til you see the Jeep! Garnet tub, black fender, green WS frame. It's BEAUTIFUL!

It's smoking pretty bad out of the left bank. Maybe I'll rebuild Clay's engine for my 7.

A can of Krylon can make it match the fender if that green don't do it for ya!

Whats the scoop, 7's gotta be a daily driver now?

And what about the 4.3, did you ditch that idea?

Well... there's probably nobody worse than me for changning gears. I still want to do the 4.3. BUT... I have a 'Migo who wants to buy the van. He has offered $1200. I am thinking hard about it. That would cover the tires for my Jeep, or paint and body, etc, etc. Clay just got a job, and he starts Thursday. Now 3 of us need dependable transportation. Beth wants my truck, Clay can have the van, and I will drive my Jeep. In the meantime, Clay and I will shove his engine in his Jeep, wire it up, and haul it to the nechanic and let him make it run. I am out of time.

If I take Clay's engine and build it right it should be pretty fun. Just listening to MY 258 with headers and turbos gets me excited! So yeah... for now it's Clay's engine... unless I change my mind again!!

Here are some pictures of the fun we had at our house yesterday. We finally got our carpet installed in our den. Home Depot has been riding the carpet horse since March! Looks nice, and now it's complete... but I don't have a finished picture.

Here are my two youngest digging potatoes. These are Red Pontiac.

And my WS frame. It was sprayed with Ospho several times and stored in the shop. I sanded it with 150, blew it off, wiped it down with Prep All, primed with 2K primer, and finally sprayed with this "Ready to Spray" single-stage paint that my auto-paint-shop-guy mixed for me. I thought I would like my Jeep to be the color of self-etching primer! When we painted Clay's rollcage I liked the green so well that I had a quart mixed that matched it. I believe it would look good with black accent, but I'm not sure I'm liking the color. Not really enough to give it an honest shot, but you be the judge...

I was referring to Clay doing something on your CJ after all you have done on his. not sure what happened with the avatar. I tried to change it unsuccessfully and now there's none??? Are you changing from garnet? For greens my fav is the OD green that Jim is doing.

Paint looks good on the saw horses! Looks less good on the jeep with all the color clash. I like it, it though. Reminds me of a light olive drab

I dunno Chris... the new owners told me my membership was expiring a couple months ago, but it doesn't expire until September. Eddie got it straightened out for me.

Color clash? What color clash?



We had a fun day today. It isn't very often that you get to physically meet a forum Jeep buddy, but I had that privilege today. HALOjumper and his wife came to White Springs today for a special function, and we ended up spending the morning together. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them, and it was like seeing someone that has been a friend for years. We walked down to the local historic hardware store and took a few pics, then we went to eat at the local hole-in-the-wall. Here are the pics from the day.

Well that's just really cool to get a chance like that. How come no one comes to Illinois? Could it be because of the professor?

I'd go with khaki paint. Then you can be like Billy G.

Gmakra.

Jim is 100% correct. Any one that doesn't like the color just tell them it's a CJ and KMA.

O' , if you worried about the primer, paint it Black.

Maybe, :-) . But since the new job and all the traveling you've been doing , people all over the nation are moving.
There has also been a 8' fence with a razor wire top put up around Goofy Ridge.

Morning Scottie!

Edit, Gators?
