    I liked the picture with the Christmas lights and "Alabama snow" on the windshield. It was an inspiration!

    To this day, there is still residue from the "snow" stuck on the wipers.

    I have been plugging away (pun intended) and filling little holes that were cut here and there and also buying copious amounts of parts from various sources! I mounted new brackets for the fuel tank and got it installed as well and then had to cut the aftermarket seat apart to make some adjustments to get it all to work together. Slowly but surely making progress!

    The big news is yesterday was was Sweet Chee’s 79th birthday! Hoot toot!

    *I threw in a sideways pic for consistency!

    Nice work Mike! It is coming along really well. I love the 79 year old part. I like to think these old Jeeps are here to remind us from where we came.

    The oil can is priceless. I have a couple of those around. All copper. They remind me of the Wizard Of OZ.

    Evey time I see a vintage Jeep fuel cell in its well thought out location..., I have to think of the picture I think gmwillys shared of a soldier, cigar in mouth, sitting on that fuel cell! I guess when the bullets are flyin', a good cigar is still the finest thing.

    Don't be a Herbie is right up there with "there is a village somewhere deprived of an idiot" borrowed from the English.
