    I have had a few over the years. None that ran.
    last one I sold a year and half ago went to California and is now in Southern Oregon getting a full customization and will be competing against the mini truck for most bad ass mini bus in a couple years.

    I am keeping this one. Jones and company are building me one bad ass ride.

    Thanks Scott!!!   I agree, Looks fucking awesome.. I love it…   So… Next??   I need to do a tiny tiny bit of welding on shit that would be easier after I blast it again and clean things up and apart too…  Also need to build a seat…..  Humm… May do that next.. it is necessary… and I want it to be good and stable, sturdy and make gobs of room for you… Probably feel funny to people that aren’t huge… but who cares.. the Owner is… 😎 😎  I want it to be comfy for this Shrek wanna be owner… 😎  Stay tuned!!!  I hope I can do it in a day… maybe..  Also need to make a few hinge pins for the gates and straight that latch before I forget… 😎 😎

    You guys may find it hard to believe, But I was able to fish that nut plate back in there, get the two screws in, drill a whole on each side of and in the center and plug welded it back in!  I was worried about the other side, so I did the same to it… Cold welds on the inside… bummer.. but nice to know… I had to weld the deck lid tab on anyway…  So it’s not really just scuff and shoot part…  anyway….

    I got all that and whole bunch of other shit done yesterday.. I got all your removables looked at, welded on if necessary, and transferred to the blasting department..  😎  😎  I am going to weld in them safari tabs and look around the shell for ANYTHING else to weld…  I want to put down the welder for good on this one…. 😎  😎    Then…. I think I should build your seat base.. I am going to make soo much room regular size people think I enlarged it…  😎 😎 😎

    I didn’t take any pics..  I just worked… 😎
