I went to see Georg and picked all of this up!

1997320

I'm glad I prepaid back in December! They'd be there for a few more months collecting dust if I owed him. Now they can collect dust here at home. This is a bit of a milestone as every major component is complete and back in my posession. Now... I need to get the body work on the tub finished and the modifications to the frame done so I can get them both off my property to media blast (and powder on the chassis). Then I can start working on a rolling chassis and collecting all the small bits. The temptation to stop resto and just put it all back together as a rolling project is EXTREMELY STRONG!!! :stop:

Came in through Soldier Meadow, through Fly Canyon, up through High Rock past the cave and the graffiti. We turned back just past the bend in the canyon where the trail goes up and over the bend. I guess that is just past where Mahogany Creek comes in. Then we turned back and left via Smoky Canyon.

The Build Phase has Officially Begun!

Chassis Mods are Done!
Well with more than a little help from my friend @hairy_apple, the frame modifications are complete and I just have 12 bolts and four bushings to pull before I can drop this thing off for powder coating.

Ryan does some outstanding fabrication and welding. He was able to salvage the ridiculously poor quality Saginaw power steering "kit" into something usable. My rear shackle mounts are reversed and the front chassis forks are fully boxed.

Good thinking with the baby/dog gate! Was that anticipatory planning, or a response to previous incursion? :)

The gas can mount I bought from Front Runner didn't work out, and I need cans on the roof for the next month, so I went with a much cheaper solution - 2x2, wood screws, and cinch straps.

The front runner mounts have some potential, but I'd have to turn the straps into more of a cage and bend the walls of the basket out a little. Decide later.

Look at Mr Fancy Pants with his wood blocks! Ratchet straps alone aren't good enough for you?

Just kidding, looks good to me. I'd throw some carpet scraps under the cans to stop rattles/squeaks.
