Its looking pretty dead in here. I used to post in here a little as Rabid_Tortoise
. Probably been 7 or 8 years since I've been in here. Some of you who've been around that long may remember me from a couple Bash's in 04, 05, and that time frame, if there's anyone left around. I had a yellow CJ with awesome tires. OlllllllOCJ
is my dad. He used to post a lot more than I did. Still does from time to time.
My Jeep has sat unused for the past five years or so. I've recently decided to pull it out of it's hole and resurrect it. Thought I'd liven the board up with some photos. I might come in and post random photos of the progress just to help keep me motivated.
Right after I pulled it out:
It's leaking brake fluid and power steering fluid, and probably everything else that can leak. It's a lot more rusty than when I last looked at it. Paint is cracking and peeling off. It's got plenty of other issues.
I've pulled it over to my place and starting taking stuff apart. It won't be a restoration in any sense of the word, but I want to make it safe to drive, lift it a little, put some decent tires on it and start hitting trails again.
As it sits currently:
Progress is slow with work and other priorities. Eventually I'll get it back up and going.
