RL, You may have to change your shop name to "TOWMASTERS". Looking good, nice detail work on the fog lights. I likes the flatbed also!!! Glad to see you've hired some help. I see Ol' Yeller just doesn't seem to get to excited. ...RM

p.s.

"Also, the shop has been hit by temperatures in the 70's & the yard work of cleaning up the neighbours' leaves in our yard has taken priority. Never thought I would be glad for rain in the next few days."

Same here RL, we got leaves a falling too!!! Time to get the boys outside!!! They don't like raking leaves and yard work at all!!! RM

Scott, The Off Road CJ only had enough room for this small engine (to small for a HEMI) to keep the hood in original position and hide the fact that the hood opened. On the four wheel driver version, once your add the gearing for the front drive you have no room. Another two wheel version with large scoop on top of a lift off hood could hide a Hemi!

Randy, to answer your interior question completely. Once the roof was removed on the off roader CJ, the rear cargo area was scratch built by boxing the perimeter of the area then using scribed evergreen sheeting as flooring. The seats were attached to the framing. The roll bar was next to give the body support. A jeweller's saw was carefully manipulated to open the hood. ..RM
RL, :confused: who wrote that last paragraph, me or you??? RL or RM :p:p Glad I could answer my question, Thanks!!!...RM

Nice little red rider RL :thumbsup::thumbsup: I don't believe I'd take her out in the snow either. Would be a shame to crunch a fender. Hey I've been noticing your "One Guy Garage" seems to be growing. Glad business is holding up for you. You may need to change the name to Canadian Customs or... or...or... Anyways, Happy Holidays to you too!!! RM

Looking good RL, for a 1.00 grab bag, how can you loose??? It'd be worth that just to have the pieces in a slavage yard, but to put her back together, and run it, Oh man :thumbsup::thumbsup: Nice save for a 200.00 plus car...RM
