In the process the Gladiator had gotten moved around to another location, where its been sitting. But I fully expect it to be coming back home under its own power!
Had picked up a 3 piece bumper set with brackets for a pretty good deal.. should come in handy at some point
Some of the new orders started rolling in.... got this little gem.. (thanks FedEx for keeping the package right side up
What's inside the large mysterious brown box you ask? Well..it's a brand new, fully built AX15
It's some nice new shiny stuff, from this great company I didn't even know was in my backyard (2 hours upstate from me)
Now the parts are all starting to stack up, and the evenings/weekends are gonna be full of wrenching
Got an HEI in that white box in the picture too..Other stuff not pictured but will have pics up soon; AX15 bellhousing (external slave), all new brakes including front Disc brake conversion, vacuum brake boost addition, tires (some nice 33x12.50's by Cooper AT3 XLT, really happy with all the Coopers I've had so I can't wait to see how these do). Wheels will be soon to follow, looking to stick with the classic look so I may be getting some WheelVintiques 62's..Can't wait to get the parts into the Gladdy and start making some real headway.
Also the big kick in my butt to get the ball moving on my project, I'm set to attend the Built to Heal event at the end of September, it's an event to raise money for the 4 Wheel to Heal. (yeah, I got a LOT of work to get done to be ready)
Of course I had to buy myself some swag to support the cause.. and it just looks so damn cool..
