All kids in house !!!!

Finally today I got back the 3A.
It looks really small at the side of the MB

Tomorrow I will start plumbing the brakes and fuel line.
Just ordered new set of gauges, headlight bezels, correct tail lights and front turn lights.

When I arrived from the office this afternoon, I found my kids playing camping in the little CJ

You've got a great collection!!

Can you share some more details on the 3A? I see some hanging pedals and a saginaw swap... what else is did you do to it? (I don't suppose you put the old 5.3 to use?)

Ahh, the innocence of children. You are a lucky man to have such a wonderful family, and two nice Jeeps!

Thanks for the compliments.
Yesterday I worked on the brake lines. Still need to wait some parts to arrive.
I`m using a Samurai booster and MC...should do the job fine.
Also I did a replica of the original "4Wheel drive" stencil.
Finally a pic of the engine....a lot of work to come....

How tall are you?

I am 6'5". I am trying to figure out how I am gonna fit in my 2a. Obviously I have to do the wheel well mod. How does that seat set in your rig in relation to the curb? (where the rear part drops 5" or so to the front floor pan.

Fantastic job on the stencil, I just painted the same one on my A1 yesterday from a "bought" stencil and there is no difference between yours and it.
