    Goodbye old friend....

    Sad day today. Speed is no more. I guess the NASCAR, Football, and endless bobble head sports commentators is more profitable than showing grass roots racing.:angry::angry:

    2012 what a year!

    Been awhile since I've posted on the forum, but have been checking it as often as possible. 2012 started off ok, went to h.e. double hockey sticks in April for me... Job was "dissolved" and had to go into full panic mode for two or three months. I have a daughter in college, and all those...

    1953. I was at an old lock shop getting some cylinders re-keyed and came across this; Sorry for the cell pic. Interior is not complete, but the rest of it looked good. Engine ran like a top!

    Axle welding question

    I need some advice from the experts. I am going to be installing one piece axles soon, and thought I would take this opportunity to weld up the axle tubes. I have a 220v buzz box welder that should have plenty of oomph to weld them. I need ideas on the best welding rod to use and a starting...

    I have the chrome wagon wheels on my 8. Two of them are slightly bent, and they all show signs of wear and tear. Has anybody ever used these as a replacement? I would need to make a template to drill for the center caps and walla!

    Rust Never Sleeps - 84 Rebuild

    I thought I would post a readers digest version of my rebuild of my 84 that has spanned the last 18 months. I have to say that this forum has really helped inspire me, and keep me motivated to stay with this project. I have restored two YJ's in the past, but really always had my eye out for an...
