Have a $50 CL 4x4 TH350 to pick up tomorrow.  Good for core only but will probably have it rebuilt and use the D300 case that has the adapter already on it.  For now.  I know I will want OD once it is road-ready.

Also a new shop tool to pick up tomorrow!  Hint - sparks will fly!

Happy (early) birthday to me...



Mahany Welding had an unbeatable deal with full warranty.  I'm so excited!  Why does it have to be so cold out?

Keith & I were all excited when we saw a new Miller box show up at my bro-n-laws local shop to replace the Mig that was taken to PA... then we saw that it is a stick... still have not asked him why a stick.

Have tank from the old unit and new Miller came with a regulator.

I have a bunch of casters that I can use to upgrade that cart or make something better.  I'm leaning on something a little more terrain-friendly.  The current set-up does not roll well on the stone driveway.

Also remembered that I have a TJ poly fuel tank with pump/sender and accel/brake pedal assemblies I can use.
Trans core picked up yesterday.

Today's goal is to get steel ordered.

Here's a couple pics of Dave's Willys. He's a local buffalo guy. It's stretched 6" in the door and another 6" in the wheel well.

Injected 350, nv4500, atlas, currie built 44/9" (true hi 9 center section)

Box tubing frame, etc.
