    I had a set of saw horses for the M38A1 build a few years back, that I didn't make. I liked the simplicity of them, but wanted to build a set that were capable of holding the weight of not only the body, but the body and frame later on. Putting on some wheels worked well for rolling the whole mess around.

    Boodogboo, we needed some good cold weather for a change. It's fun to watch the Wally World shelves empty of milk, bread, and eggs every time a flake of snow is in the forecast.

    Every so often blind squirrels find acorns without worms in them.

    Just remember - when you're working on old Jeeps - every Yee-Haw has an Awww -Pooh hiding behind it.

    Have a safe New Year guys...

    Same to you Sir. You are correct in your statement. The sun does shine on a dog's butt every once in a while. At bare minimum, he has good bones to start out with.

    It has been asked about the measurements for the stock placement of the rear spring hangers on the wagons.

    These first photos could have been better. The first two pictures are from the lower rear frame rail to the mount.

    I managed to get a few hours in a row to strip some more paint off the wagon. The dash board and firewall were the first priority, then the floor boards. I managed to make it past the front seat mounts, mid way to the rear seats. The nylon brushes that harbor freight sell cuts through the paint fairly quickly. In my opinion, they work much better than sand blasting. The next step will be replacing the floor boards.

    I want to try these on the Donaldson oil bath air cleaner I found for the '48. Sand blasting an air cleaner and getting it full of grit doesn't seem to be that great of an idea.

    Which size and grit seem to do the best job for you?
