So this is somewhere between the jeep and the pickup truck(s)?

Much more sane a project than the Jeep, since I only took the motor out, and didn't disassemble the whole thing. More fun than the rangers, but probably less sane.

Now the cabin has a Jeep CJ6 rolling chassis, and a body getting prepped for paint in the basement. One ranger parts truck outside. A VW Bus without an engine outside, and a VW engine project in the basement. Need more parts storage racks.

Need two washing machines on the front deck and a busted wood stove on the lawn and it would be just like Vermont.

When I moved in I had three broken wood stoves, a busted bath tub and at least three mattress springs scattered around the field.

One 55gallon drum conversion stove is under the porch. Another wood stove in the basement, and at least one more in the wood shed. The bed of the old truck is the base of a scrap metal pile that is accumulating for pickup that includes a washing machine, and dehumidifier, and at least one lawnmower.

Ken, I remember back when skating was just getting started some folks were towing mattress springs behind their snowmobiles as "grooming apparatus".

And old washing machines are a great source of free sheet metal. I once patched the rusted out drivers side floor of a Buick with a chunk out of the side of a washing machine.

I tried towing a mattress spring and it certainly didn't work well for me.

Don't know about the sheet metal, but angles from the bed frames make up the structure of my trail roller. Also the frame for my track setter. Steel scrap is very useful.
