Receiving a Ticket in an M-38

Bill shared this odd story of a jeep owner getting a ticket. The comments are odd/amusing, too. The writer claimed the jeep is a WWII jeep, but it looks like an M-38.

Kaiser SV-102 H Military Audio/Visual Wagoneer on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s

Bill spotted this highly unusual audio/visual jeep called an SV-102 H.

View all the information on ebay

“Available for you to consider is a 1967 Kaiser Jeep 4×4 6cyl w/3spd manual 3 on the tree. This vehicle has been stored away indoors for years. Engine spins freely and will run you will need a radiator , carb rebuilt, 2) 12 v batteries (24volt system) most likely clean up brakes and will need fuel system flushed with new fuel. This is a very rare unique vehicle. This Jeep was used in Vietnam for Audio Visual. This Jeep is out of Fort Knox. I really know nothing of this particular history of actual usage and very little information to be found on the web.

I understand it was a very low production vehicle with very few left inexistence. What I do know it is a great conversation piece. It really grabs attention. Check underneath pics. Floors, frame all very solid. Floorboards all solid, rust free….The patina is awesome. Has not been touched since back in the day….Rear barn doors… Seat in great shape as well as dash. Just a unique vehicle..”

Some Days, An Inch is a Mile!

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE: I got things turned around and mounted the headers. I also got the sliding door done correctly, the first time :-). I think I measured about 17 times, lol.

Slider before trim:

2022-01-22-trim2-lores

Slider after trim:

2022-01-22-trim3-lores

==========

As mentioned, I’ve been working on trim for our master bedroom. Ann wanted a Craftsman look to the trim, so I put together this look to the header, constructed out of four pieces, two of which require the table saw and planer to meet the right specs (I love having the wood working equipment at the ready!!). The first iteration of this turned out great on Wednesday.

2022-01-21-trim2-lores

Still needing to finish two other doors, both 36″ wide (closet was only 29″ wide), I decided to do both headers at the same time on Thursday. I measured. I remeasured. I cut. I painted. Everything seemed to be assembling fine. But, somehow, I wrote down the wrong initial measurement, one inch too narrow, which led to this foul up (albeit, much stronger language was used when I set the header atop the boards in this photo!

2022-01-21-trim1-lores

Yep, I was exactly one inch short! *%@*@!! So, I spent Friday rebuilding another set of headers exactly one inch wider, lol …

On the bright side, it turns out, after walking through the house measuring doorways, that we have two different doors in the future tv/office that have 35″ doorways, so the now-extra headers will work perfectly in there … whew!

“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

Willys MB tub, grill, fenders, hood
M38 windshield
Spicer 18 transfer case core(needs rebuilt)
Short width Dana 30 axle with factory disc brakes from a CJ5
