That's the back road to the visitor center above the Yosemite Valley. I think it's Glacier Rd. The third pic is about 10 or more miles back woods between Pagosa Springs and Durango Colorado. Had to use 4wd the whole way. The first pic is of course Morro Bay. Check out the license plate.

Starting to pack for our trip to the GatorNationals.

By the way if anyone thinks I'm being foolish about posting that we will be away, our son George will be house sitting while we are away.

A 64 CJ-5 and a 2012 Arctic. I haven't towed the 64 yet but it will probably make a few trips this summer. I just finished the bumper to attach the Roadmaster.

Roger, that '64 put me in mind of the '60 CJ 5 we had in the late 70's. After we blew up the 4 cylinder I dropped in a V6 salvaged from a 67 Buick Skylark. This photo was taken in Michigan sometime late 70's, early 80's. The young man in the back was our "little brother", we were part of the Big brothers program.

Looks like the same Jeep. I got my first Jeep when I was 14 and haven't spent many years without one since. I started with a surplus M38 and have had just about everything they have made since. A Jeepster, a Forward Control, and a 4dr Unlimited would just about complete my personal Jeep slam.

Little update on my Jeep

Time to work on the inside of the Jeep for a little bit. I bought some original parts awhile back. One of the pieces was a seat. The seat cover was in almost perfect condition with one small exception. The seat frame was rusted out in the area of the right rear mounting bolt area and as it turned out the rod used to hog ring the seat cover to was also rusted out. My original intention was to have the two seat covers swapped, the good cover swapped to my good frame, have them leave the other cover of the rusted frame, weld it up and then put the old cover on that frame and sell it. It turned out the old frame was not savable, so I have just the cover. I think I will just hold on to it as it is not that bad.



As is always the case you start one project and another pops up, the inside of the Jeep looks pretty sad

I guess I will have to do something about it. I have been want wanting to get to this rust for awhile now.



I have used this paint a number of times and it was a pretty good match, but this time it did not match up that well, but makes little difference as it is under the capet. Here is my tool of destruction. It works well.





I taped off the area after grinding and sjhot some primer and then the paint and then clear on top. As I said above it did not match as well this time as it did in past projects, I was closer once I cleaned up all the over spray from the primer, and I really should have taken more car and covered EVERYTHING with drop cloths before spraying.





A little soap and water cleaned up the rear very nicely.



I can never leave well enough alone, so when I saw the seat frames, they had to be sand blasted and powder coated. Both front and rear





So how do you tell a crazed jeep fanatic? Well look for the guy out in his driveway in the freezing cold cleaning the carpets in his Jeep. Another piece of original stuff I picked up was another complete carpet set. I have cleaned both the set of carpets that were in the Jeep and the set set of carpets that I picked up used. i will install the best and then sell the other set. They actually came out pretty good.





The newly cleaned carpet and the freshly powder coated seat frames really look good together.



Another item I picked up was an NOS roll bar cover.




It did not come with the foam pad needed to go under the roll bar cover so one will have to be made. I have extra if anyone needs some


We cut the pieces, and then trimmed them to fit. The piece that goes over the top is just a square piece 60" X 1/2" X 9" and fits perfect. The short piece that runs down the back side of the seat 23 1/2 " X 1/2" X 9" has to be trimmed at the top to go around the seat belt bolt and fit the intersection of the rear brace. The piece that goes around the rear brace has to be trimmed to fit the rear deck of the wheel house and the intersection of the top roll bar. 36" X 1/2" X 9". I then used tape to hold the foam in place to put the cover on, I taped the whole length of the foam to give it a uniform thickness and left it in place.




I have some wrinkles in the cover, and hope they will come out over time, I will go back and try and straighten them out as time passes.




As always I wan to thank the help of the car nuts that show up to eat my food and drink my drink, and help out.



So it is time to start packing for our long planned trip to the Gator Nationals, It will be good to see green grass again.

Just a note, for anyone that thinks I have been foolish in posting my trip plans, my son George will be staying at our house instead of in his apartment taking care of the fish and taking a vacation from his room mate.






Hey, I'm always looking for NOS parts for this Jeep (tow hooks, light switches, Garnet interior pieces, etc. keep me in mid please.

As always I have updated my web site with more pictures.

All I can say is great job Glenn. And I will try to make George's party while you are gone! Your Jeep looks great by the way. Enjoy your trip.
