            • What a great fleet you have Peter! You have your trail rig towing your trail rig, while your trail rig is waiting impatiently for its turbo.... Way too cool!

                              • PR was awesome-- worked my *** off on the new-to-us house (Joanna's Grandfathers House) & still got a day of Jeeping in with some stellar friends.

                                The stars aligned today & I got almost a full day in the shop.

                                First thing was to fab up a set of folding sawhorses to replace the $35 Home Depot plastic horses. The hinges had shattered & I did not feel safe getting under this thing with them there. These are much better. Pay me now or pay me later!

                                I then donned the welding jacket & sweated my *** off getting the last of the floor welded in-- no pics, but it came out well. The last of the sheet metal work is at hand, but I didn't have the stamina to don the welding gear any longer. So looking forward a bit, I tucked into getting the trans cross member finished (yeah, it's been sitting for months). The body will be ready to fit on the frame soon & this thing needs to be in!

                                Cleaned up & ready for the insert

                                a 1" thick chunk of plow-edge steel. The Bridgeport was used to get it to fit well.

                                crappy photo, but you get the idea. Just have to drill for some plug/rosette welds along the bottom & weld in some caps. Then it will need to be tapped & drilled & painted.
