Re: Gota love the little things
Right now for the CJ its the little things i am doing.
The house is the big project.
I'd like to build another slightly bigger jeep (i have most of the big parts), then restore CJ. But the house just keeps asking for more. Im also waiting to see what is going to happen with a road course they are trying to build locally. If that actually happens, i'll probablly not build another jeep, and put something together for the road course. Proabably a miata with a v8. A new version of the poor mans cobra, when they used to take heallys and MG and stuff V8's into them.
Heres the list for the CJ.
Build a new front bumper and move the winch on top of the crossmember, I dont do mud any more and that bumper was built for the jersey pines soup.
New springs, mine are shot out badly.
Install my 60 chevy pickup taillights, retro and flush.
First thing though is figure out why its running like crap. Probably a carb issue. I cant seem to get more then two years out of a rebuild on the carb. Probably from sitting to much. Todays gas sucks butt.
The big list for the house.
Install new oil tank. It started leaking and we pumped it out and now i just have to paint the wall behind it and bring the new one down the steps.
Install new basement window, that i put in last year, but we broke the glass carring the old oil tank up the steps.
Rebuild the back bedroom. And i mean rebuild it. Who ever was the idiot that added that bedroom on was a moron. Didnt do a damn thing right. So the whole bedroom is going to come off and be rebuilt. To big of a job to do myself, so im waiting on prices.
The wife wants a deck, to bad for her. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
And then late this winter or spring start making plans for the pole barn. My dad is getting ready to start getting out of buisness and sell the shop, so we will need a place to play and him to still do some work.
