It's done.  Whew!

Armed with my documentation, I hit DMV as soon as they opened.  After careful review of my paperwork, the only puzzlement was how to calculate sales tax.  NY obviously wants their share.  After a couple of phone calls, I got sent home to do some photocopying of receipts.  All major components, they say...

So, I photocopied and I photocopied.  I ended up with $2069 worth of "major" components that were not taxed at purchase.  This stuff includes CL purchases like tires and trans and other purchases like seats and glass.  I included lots of photocopies of stuff that shows that tax was paid too.  Two copies of each, one for DMV and one for Sales Tax.

Hit the office for Visit #2 right after lunch break. Other than a glitch with the VIN on the ins card, I walked out with plates.  He also advised that the title will likely take a while because of the document review and that this type of transaction requires a mandatory tax audit.  I should expect a call from the (DMV) tax department.  Bah!  >:(

Not pretty but functional...

1" square tube frame with 16g tacked to one side,
a hole cut for glass, one manual wiper



Old pic, now hinged on the bottom as all jeep windshields should be  ;D

Well, as sMike predicted, Geico dropped the Willys.  >:(

After some phone time with their underwriter, I learned that it was because it was a replica/kit. If I wanted to keep just liability on it, I could include it with some other vehicles in my fleet. So, I transferred the Corolla to them.

Hopefully, that's the last of the drama.

Beginnings of a hood made. It'll stay like this until I can figure out a way to roll the sides, then just rivet them on...

I think Jeff Hall can help you on this. He just got an English roller when I stopped by few months ago.

While on the Helldorado trail in Area BFE, the short side axle shaft seal started leaking profusely. Again. Grrr.

Pulled the front assembly out and apart today. Both side lip seals looked fine. Pushed the sealing housings out and there wasn't any good evidence of o-ring or RTV failure. I guess that doesn't mean that the RTV didn't fail.

Bah!
