I've been thinking about that too. I was wondering if we should get together at a Swap Meet and un-load contributions for the cause. The only place that come to mind to me would be Springfield. It would cut my mileage in half so that I could go and return on the same day. Would we count the value of the parts donated and sold towards project SHARES? I know with money tight maybe donating parts to sell would get more people involved if they thought they had a piece of it. An other idea would be if peoples "Want List" was made known here before Ebay. It's hard for me to gather the nerve to sell anything and make people think they need it. If someone makes known what they need and it's around maybe it'd be easier to donate money from the sale. I'd hate for my donation to clutter up your clean garage or new trailer. You may need the room when George gets his place clean. GPster

I have a spot at the Coldwater swap meet May 12 and 13 to sell unneeded parts we have to raise money. I will have more room than I need, soif any one close has something they want to sell, bring it.

Untill I get the Jeepster pushed back into the garage this weekend and the tarp off of it I can't remember what I may have. Except for that '42 - '48 Ford radiator I think the rest of it would look like an S10 yard sale. I'd like to be there to help but I'm still trying to catch up from the five days I used for the "Hooley runs the Ohio Mile". If I don't get the chicken coop (should be coupe?) done soon I may be spending "Mother's Day" in it. GPster

I found a pair of new Delco shocks in my horde that may be usable. They appear rather short with eyes on both ends.

Do we know what length range we need yet?

Okay, Tony asked for an update, here it is.

The basic frame is done but will need further welding. The body is almost done, it needs some attention to some dents, and TLC all over, and some minor welding. We have a racing seat, it needs to be modified a bit, but is near new. We have all four wheels, and the front tires. We had slicks, but they were sold at a profit, and the money used for other parts.

The front axle, and suspension is made, we need to narrow the steering rack, and make mounts for it. The rear axle housing is made, still needs the brace final welded. The rear suspension needs the 4 link brackets modified, but is otherwise done.

The tilt front end needs extensive welding, and panels made to blend in the grille area.

We have a powerglide to go in it that has been rebuilt.

We need axles, rear brakes, roll cage, floor, windows, shifter, and many small things that have not been addressed yet.

The total spent so far is $1570 Wer have $100 on hand. The sale of the BBQ trailer will give us more

thanks for the update.

just tossing this out:

It was mentioned early on, as this project was discussed.

We did not want the project to become a job performed by 2-3 ppl. It seems that it has become a 4 - 7 ppl project. It is difficult for the folks at the western end of the country to get involved physically.

I had no new answers or different ideas that were not discussed before.

Shipping can get expensive. Moving the project via trailer is an option, yet costs are involved there too.

Are we still on path for a V8 or use any chevy based engine for the powerglide trans on hand? I dis like adapaters, yet the common BOP adapter to chevy bolt patterns is inexpensive. Proper converter setup spacing is required & simple

I am more than willing to move the project to another area to work on it. That was my original idea. The problem is we need some one who can store it between build days, and enough people in the area to make it worth wile.

As far as engines, most any GM engine can be coupled to the Glide with a simple plate adapter

Nothing has been happening. We have $800 cash available to work with. We have not started on a roll cage yet. I have picked up some tubing for it. It has been a hassle trying to find a time where we can get together to work on it.

I'm up for a build day. Summer is winding down. Hopefully there will be more time to get together.
