It's been awhile since I last posted so I figured I'd add a few new pictures and a brief update. I honestly haven't touched the GPW since about November, as I haven't really had much time and when I have had the time the weather has been wet and cold. I will say, though, that I did briefly hop in and start the old girl this weekend and couldn't have been happier. I primed her 6-7 times, pressed the pedal a few times, full choke, and she fired up almost immediately! Is spring here yet? :D

Although I wasn't jeep focused this weekend, I did fortunately get the chance to spend all day on Saturday in my garage working on my MC and some garage wiring. It was about 35 degrees outside, but had the wood stove fired up and had it to a toasty 71 degrees inside - just warm enough that the jeep's canvas smell started to engulf the entire garage :P

A few shots I took admiring the GPW:

First project of the day: belt changes on my other 'antique', the 94' M900

And lastly, installation of some new outdoor garage lighting 8)

At first glance it kinda looked like Man's Best Friend was wearing VR goggles....which would explain why cat videos on You Tube are so popular....

LOL! Yes, for sure!

Also, very funny, Chuck! Unfortunately, this good boy is frequently beat up by cats, so the only cat videos he might watch would ones where he could learn to attempt to out smart them! :lol:
