we've got electrical gremlins to chase in the green open (Cheyenne). running lights = blown fuse :roll:

tires need tubes and mounted on Cheyenne

she also needs some sort of bumper....


i'm gonna hafta try to call for a favor to get lockers in since i banged up my wrenchin' hand.... can't get the thirds out without tearing it back open.

sliders are definately a no-go in the amount of time left, so the lack of a locker may be a good thing if i can't get stupid :twisted:

the red open (Georgia) just needs the cooling system put back together after installing (not replacing -- it didn't have one) a t-stat and replacing the 35 year old heater hoses. then she'll be ready to load up and roll out.

and three nights to get alla this crap done? yikes..... :shock:




so, how's everybody else coming?







i really should be out there working..... damn this finger.... :-(

Ahh, sorry to hear about your boo-boo. Image Without lockers, the Sammies will eat you for lunch. Image

All I've gotta do is fix a flood light and install a couple of rock lights. You fellows aren't afraid of the dark are you? Image

I love night crawlin!!!

I don't have lockers in the front of LJ either, the Sami's are going to reign! :ohno: It will still be fun.

How many from your club will be coming?




My List

I need to re-arch the driver side springs. I will do a How-To while I am doing this.

Do some body work... oh wait, that will be wasting my time.

Sew three sets of seat covers.

I think that's about it, I hope I'm not forgetting anything.

I just re-arched the driver side leaf springs on Ranger and hammered out some dents in the hood and a couple other places, so I am now ready all I have to do tomorrow is double check my camping gear and go get ice and beer, oh and some water and I'll be ready for when Russ, Smuz and I all meet up in a little town called Riverton Kansas, right on Route 66.

Russ just called and he is 4 hours out so I'm going to head on out of here right after lunch and head towards Disney.

I think I'm probably the only one that hasn't left to go, I'm sure Tweeder has already left since he has a 4 hour drive.
