Picture was cropped to protect the innocent. Actually, it was parked on the side of the house that needs siding the worst...


I understand the siding thing.....still not finished with my new siding! Raining now & plenty of farm work to get done, then the Jeep to repair.....I'll never get caught up!

As i mentioned earlier the cab looks great...and just for the record, the blinky light doesn't make you a dork...you ARE a dork, but it has nothing to do with the light LOL. Just kidding of course. Nice work!

I texted him earlier with a close up of the light and the message that I was a dork. Wondered why there wasn't a response.

Anyway you will still be lots warmer out in the sleet,rain or snow. But what about a wiper to keep the windshield clean?

Thought about it, but I think it'd scarf up the plastic fast. Maybe a snow brush on a wiper arm tho...

Clean it real well and coat with Rain-X. Great stuff for windshields. Ice doesn't stick to it very well.

That's using the old noggin'! Great way to use what ya got.


:ditto: Nice Job! I am a big fan of the "use what you got on hand" crowd! Did you find that garage door lock bar or not??

Please don't tell us you bungie corded a outboard tank to the roof.

When my brother and I were teenagers, we got ahold of a VW, and wanted to turn it in to a dune buggy. It had been
in an accident. We got it straightened it out enough, and got it running, except the gas tank had been punctured.
So we roped and outboard motor tank to the roof.
I'll never forget dad bouncing off the walls, when he got home.
And that was that.

:bigrofl::bigrofl: at least you got home

Alan, you must have made an awful mess putting that thing together to cause you to crop the pic! Looking great!

Yeah I wondered on that too?? No way would I have thought bad siding in the pic.

I texted him earlier with a close up of the light and the message that I was a dork. Wondered why there wasn't a response.

I am guessing cause he wanted to share the fun with us:D
Nice job on the project will be waiting for some better pictures, just don't park on that side of the house again:poke::smilewink:

OK, As promised, here is how you put gas in the SS12. Redneck Style.
Here it is as it was last night.
SS12 Snow 1 (Large).jpg

Start by Undoing the nuts on each side of the hood.
SS12 Snow 2 (Large).jpg

I found (2) 5/16" double-ended bolts for this attachment point.
SS12 Snow 3 (Large).jpg

Once both of the Rods (garage door parts) are disconnected,
you can tip the cab back
SS12 Snow 4 (Large).jpg

And lift the hood to fill 'er up.
SS12 Snow 5 (Large).jpg

Managed to get a pic of my Blinky Lite
SS12 Snow 6 (Large).jpg

And just to show Casey that YES, I do fit... (putz)
SS12 Snow 7 (Large).jpg

Alan, looking good. I see that mullet of yours is starting to come in good again. :)
As for the fill'er up technique, I have an idea for you, and you will like it... cut a hole in the hood for the gas tank cap LOL.
