Second hood chop went way smoother, however I cut it a bit too high for my fenders. Oh well

Great inspiration... You''ve obviously burnt some welding wire in the past.
those welds look good.

I'm still building equipment to build my jeep. since I can't do 5 bends so
close together on my brake, I am now building a big bead roller to allow the
one problem bend on a regular CJ upper body design.

..Sherpa

oh and EBAY is your friend for LS motors..... I search L83 and L99 all the

time.......

So I searched on eBay and while there is a good amount of stuff, ms seems pricier than if I order shit ready to go from Tilden.

My brake is shady doing that upper rail bend, u gotta do em in the right order and the two close ones u gotta kinda clamp and pray. First one came out perfect. After that I fucked up 3more and let a buddy do it haha

my brake will do a correct thickness test bends on anything under 36" wide....... after that
it slips. and I clamped the piss outta that sheet stock. since my making my own full length
sides on my tub, the peice I'm bending is just about 5 feet..... slip city.

--I always wondered why pistachios can't touch the ground when you harvest. we harvest
almonds and actually they need time on the ground to continue to dry before we run the
pick up machine...

Pistachios have a wet Hull and must be hulled immediately. They go straight into trailers and on the road. If not they start to break down and stain.

I had the same dilemma, sell the stock 300 and its a no brainer, order the atlas and its a hell of an upgrade for $400. Plus you wont have to rebuild the 300. Nice build thread

Okay so took the jeep up to swamp lake....




So at the time I took the picture I figured Id lost the tranny mount. Somewhere between there and camp I broke a motor mount too.




Broken mount

Sorry no good rock crawlin, had to turn back at a mile and a half. Only one way to fix this problem....
