You ever see those makeover shows where a team of highly capable people come and work on a project that turn out to be real before-and-after showstoppers? Shows like Overhaulin’, and such. This past weekend, I had my own version of the “A-Team” show up and put Porkchop into working order. And it was jaw-dropping – not to mention humbling – to be a part of it.

Willys Jeep: Engine Bay Paint (Pictorial)

Quick and dirty pictorial of the painting of Porkchop’s Engine Bay. With the issues surrounding the electrical, I figured I’d take the opportunity to repaint while the wires and several other pieces were out of the way.

Willys Jeep: Badger Mockups and Brake Lines

May 10, 2015 1 comment

This is really just a quick blog with some photos to show a little progress (very little). I’ve been mocking up the steering and the brake lines to make sure that everything fits before I tighten everything together. A couple of things that I would love to have some advice on, however, are the proper placement for brake lines and the correct angle for the steering tie rods.

Geeks with Jeeps Week in Moab, Utah (Pictorial)

April 29, 2015 3 comments

I’m going to be posting some of these on my 500px account, which will require more work because of keyword tagging, etc. But for now I thought I’d simply post the main photos here (there are over 100, so take your time.

No, I didn’t take Porkchop or Badger (they’re not ready for travel anywhere, and even if they were they couldn’t have made most of the stuff we were doing).

Enjoy. (oh, and please don’t steal. Reposting with attribution is fine).

Pleasanton Auto Show (Pictorial)

IMG_0526.JPG.200Yesterday my wife asked me if we could go to an auto show this weekend. Yeah, I know – she’s a keeper! Here are some of the pictures that I took of some of the cars (there were over 3000 there, many were for sale! It’s amazing that I actually didn’t walk away with something!

I tweeted some of the pictures as it was happening, but apparently my “multi-photo” tweets didn’t go through, so here they are. When I get a chance, I will try to have captions of what they are.
