“I’m currently working on a hand built rock buggy that started life as a 1946 Willys flatfender Jeep. I’m still working on it when time allows but I’m willing to let it go if someone wants to make a decent offer. This project is still a long way from being finished but the chassis is fully welded, suspension is complete minus shock mounts, drivetrain is positioned, engine accessories in place, radiator mount half finished, etc. A lot of tube work, body work, all the small details, and finishing work are still needed. You could say it’s basically a good rolling chassis.

100% of the work up to this point has been done by me over the last several years. The frame is 2x4x0.125 box tubing and the round tube is mostly 1.5×0.120 DOM. The 2” roll cage tubing is HREW I believe. Motor mounts, radiator mounts, most of the suspension link mounts are hand made since I didn’t want to compromise with pre-fab stuff.

Thanks to Rick and Paulette for letting us take their Jeepster for a spin!

Day 16: Monday we drove from Cincinnati to Columbus, Ohio, via Roger and then Rick and Paulette’s places.

Monday’s trip took us from Cincinnati to Columbus, Ohio.

The first step towards facing your problem is admitting you have a problem. Yes, I have a problem. I have Jungle-Jim-itus. After saying our goodbyes to Scott, our first stop of the day was at Jungle Jims (just happened to be on our way, sort of). Our goal was to explore the gluten free aisle, then check out the coffee aisle. We were fairly well-behaved and managed to leave with only a few items.

2018-05-16-jungle-jimes-map

When you need a map for a grocery store, you know you are in a big one!

Our second stop of the day was at Roger Martin’s house, where he plans on holding another Southwest Ohio FC gathering this summer. Since we won’t be around for that event, I got to have some early hands on FC fun. Roger’s been working on a green and gray FC-170. It runs great, but needs some more body work. He pulled it out of the garage and let me drive it around his property. I liked that it didn’t have a windshield!
