We interrupt this regularly scheduled restoration…

…to bring you a possible change to the time frame.

That’s right, I’m getting restless.

Ike is a fantastic and fun Jeep. I am consistently impressed with what he can do, even in his 60-year-old, rusted-through, leaking every possible fluid including gas state. He’s like the old man that just won’t give up his independence.

Either that, or he’s the old man yelling “I’m not  dead yet” when the body cart comes rolling through town.

In any event, I’m starting to rethink my time frame for striping Ike down to the frame (you see what I did there?). The only reason I was going to wait until March is because that would be the end of the current vehicle registration on the old guy. The more I think about it, the more I think I might be wasting some good cool weather to do some heavy lifting, in the hopes that the weather will cooperate enough to actually get some driving time in.

So, now the question is, do I really start tearing this thing apart in December during the holidays, or do I try and hold off until March and do much of the hard work in the “summer” Mojave heat?
