Body Progress

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

With the roof repaired, I was able to return to the body on Wednesday. From sanding the body, I can see this isn’t the first time it’s been repaired (fiberglass patches and some bondo). Below are pics after applying the fiberglass filler and applying some sandable primer, but before any bondo. I’ve since applied some bondo to fill in some holes, nicks, and cracks.

1947 CJ-2L Kamloops, BC, Canada, $9000


This is one of the nicest looking 2L’s that I’ve seen. Given it’s proximity to Spokane, it’s highly likely it’s a 2L out of that area.

“1947 Willys Jeep converted to pick-up. Archive photos. Original engine swapped out for older Ford Ranger engine, charging system converted from 6 volt to 12 volt. Starts, runs, needs some brake work. Original engine included in price. Barn stored in winter. Looking for younger, more mechanically inclined owner!”

If Not For The Mosquitos …

• CATEGORIES: Features

After several days of near 100 temps, on Monday morning we had a storm blow through that brought a refreshing rain storm, during which I opened the sliding glass door in our bedroom, but neglected to close the screen door …

On Monday night we went to bed. Before falling asleep, I read some news on my phone. Strangely, a mosquito began buzzing me. I swiped at it and it went away, but soon followed by another mosquito.

Ann was still awake and as annoyed at the buzzing as I was. So, I turned on the lights. Looking up to our sloped, vaulted white ceiling, it was clear that there were more than two mosquitos, more like 20+. Thus began 20 minutes of me hopping on the bed and furniture attempting to kill as many mosquitos as I could.

During the process, I spotted a mosquito against the outside wall above the door. That’s when I saw it. Not the mosquito, but a bulge in the paint near the ceiling, like an upside down hotdog half. I gently pressed on the bulge and it felt like bulging paint, but not drywall. Ugh … given no rain was expected and many mosquitos were dispensed, I went to sleep knowing what the morning project would be … find the leak!

I was on the roof by 6:30am, but the source of the leak wasn’t readily visible. I started at roof peak, then worked my way down the roof. It wasn’t until I was right over it that I saw a broken branch barely protruding from the roof. In fact, it was almost even with roof, which is why I hadn’t ‘t seen it. I reached down to pull it out and the piece as about 3″ in diameter, but only 4″ long. My guess is that the branch got blown off our back trees, impaled the roof, then broke off, leaving the embedded piece. The fix isn’t difficult, but it’s still time consuming.

Next, I was about to go inside to investigate the wall damage when Ann called me over to examine our Polaris Ranger’s spray motor. It had stopped working. One multi-meter later, I tracked the problem down to a blown fuse.

As Ann went to go spray, I went inside to make some Dutch Babies, prep some lamb for the Trager. I was just finished with all that when Ann called me on the phone. “Quick,” she said, “get out to the pasture, two calves have caught them selves up in the hotwire!” .


By the time I made it to the pasture, the calves were freed. So, we removed the wire (and will upgrade to larger wire).

Some mornings just aren’t easy! The good news is that I tore out some of the dry wall and it appears there wasn’t too much damage. The pierced-roof must have happened recently, I saw no indications of long-term moisture damage nor any mold. We’ll let it dry/air out for a few days before I patch it up.


Funny thing is, if not for the annoying mosquitos, we might not have spotted the damage!

Odd Jeep Printers Block on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

This block depicts an oddly shaped jeep (?). It almost looks like a jeepney.

View all the information on eBay

“Vintage Printing Letterpress Block
The block of wood is approximately 4 inches by 1.6 inches. 0.9 inch thick wood.
If you need exact measurements, please let me know.
Subject matter is:
Jeep or similar vehicle with things on the roof.
There is a sign also that shows which way Canada is.
I haven’t tried to polish this up or anything but it probably could become shinier if somebody decided to do that.
Some of the pictures where it’s clearer or shinier is because of how I positioned the lighting in the room.”

And Now, for Something Different … Chesire, OR $34,000

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Perfect for towing your jeep to remote places?

“This bus has been my labor of love for many years but I have moved out of state and it’s time to sell. It DOES run and drive. It’s a 1970 GMC 5500 chassis with a Wayne body. It’s has a GMC 305M 60degree V6 in it, I replaced the motor in 2014 using the M designated components from the original 351 V6.

All of the components that are too high and too wide are removable. The wood stove pop out lifts off. The top of the second floor middle loft room, which we use as a closet, comes off and is built to be lightweight. It stows on the deck for transport. The mast is hinged and folds down easily. It isn’t just for looks, that’s a projector screen and there is a projector stand as well. Movies on the deck are a ton of fun.

It’s plumbed and wired.

240v 50amp. 3 dedicated heater circuits. 1 electric hot water heater, one gas tankless heater. Each room on it’s own breaker plus an outdoor outlet.

It’s got a 30g blackwater and 60g grey water tank plus a mecerator pump for pumping your business uphill. The kitchen sinks uses an electric hot water heater and the shower uses the tankless.

I have a clean title in hand. It has already been converted to RV status.”

1953 CJ-3A Farm Jeep North Canton, OH $7500


UPDTE: As Bill notes in the comments, there has been some odd activity with this Jeep.

Seller believes this to be a Farm Jeep based on the serial number. The hardtop is a Kelly “23” series top. Thanks to Tom for sharing it.

1953-cj3a-farmjeep-northcanton-oh6 1953-cj3a-farmjeep-northcanton-oh7 1953-cj3a-farmjeep-northcanton-oh8 1953-cj3a-farmjeep-northcanton-oh9

“Serial Number 453GC1 10049 indicates a 4-cylinder, 1953 production year. The fifth symbol C indicates a Farm Jeep. About 10,617 CJ3As were produced in 1953, but only 85 serialized Farm Jeeps were produced in 1953, this Willys is number 49. Less than 10 of these are listed in the Kaiser Willys or databases to still be intact or running. While it has been resprayed, the original color was Pacific Blue, and the original paint can be seen under the hood and inside the fenders.

Farm Jeeps had reinforced frames for the additional implements as well as upgraded springs. The frame and suspension are in good shape. The engine and drive train are fully functional, and it starts and drives reliably. Steering is reasonable for the condition, however much of its 27,000 actual miles has been off pavement, while it can be driven on the road, it would need adjustments to feel comfortable above 45 MPH.

No updates Tuesday

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Well, I’d planned to do updates, but the weather was perfect for sanding and patching the race body’s big holes with fiberglass (and smaller holes with fiberglass putty), so that took priority. I might be able to have all the body prep done by tomorrow evening.

With the highs around 90 degrees, it’s not too hot, so this week is perfect for prepping and painting the body and front clip.

Initial Color: Kubota Orange

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

After one of the nicest April, May and June I think I’ve ever experienced, our summer highs in the 90s have finally arrived. However, work goes on when it can.

We have settled on a temporary color, Kubota Orange. It’s the rattle can color that we think looked the best. I don’t want to do a nicer paint job just yet, because I don’t want to take the time right now to get the body and front clip completely smooth (in case I want to do the mounts differently). Instead, I want to get the jeep running, so that I can test the anchor points to make sure they hold like I hope they will and that the front clip doesn’t rub on the body.

Yesterday I made four of the six front clip mounts, with the final ones to be made today. Here’s the orange on the fender (only two coats). It’s a little darker in person.
