Broke ground today



Mocked up sitting at ride height(ish). Looks a little crooked because passenger side tires are low.

Sitting right around 88" wheelbase, which is subject to change, but looked about right.

Have a box coming from ruffstuff, shits getting real. Plan is to get the motor/trans/tcase mocked in during Christmas shutdown so I can move towards getting the linkage setup and start laying out the interior. If I would have remembered, I would have brought my windshield frame with me to mock up as well.

Hoping I can make some real progress this winter, if the ice doesn't get too thick on the lakes ;)

It's nice that you have steel in your blood.

Once I get it in the jeep I'll make the final call, but I'm looking at making my own elbow to spin it towards the passenger side

got some plates and bracket drawings off to the laser place, and I brought home a brand new millermatic 211 tonight


The kernel is coming home next month so I can actually work on it at home and hopefully get somewhere with it.
