    Me too... Is that actual plates or a wrap of some sorts?? Either way I think this whole thing is pretty awesome... One day, I'd love to get into doing something like that... Is that a racing lawnmower in the foreground??

    Yea me and my son built it a few years back, he won a lot of races with it.. Wasn't super fast but it always stayed together and was there in the end... Clay was always patient and a great driver...

    That's awesome... I would have loved to have done something like that over the years... used to play with riding mowers, and tweak them... I had an old one back in the day that we ditched the mow deck and turned it into a go-kart... and had lots of fun with that beast... not sure whatever happened to it.. But would have loved to have done something like that with it...

    We've had a lot of fun with the mower, he doesn't race it anymore he's moved on.. Hardest part is getting started, all projects roll on after that....

    I am building my 1993 XJ for the Gambler 500 (OG500) in Portland, OR.

    I am still trying to come up with a theme/shtick to go with. So far...I think it is going to be the "B Team", as in a knock-off of the A-Team....

    I bought the hoopty for 500 in running/driving condition, but barely. Reconstructed title, 226K miles, Auto, 4x4.

    It is deck liner (similar to Rustoleum bedliner, but lower quality) black, mostly, where it hasn't worn off yet...

    Seems to me there was an old pod cast on the XJTalk show, now Jeep Talk Show that had an interview with a guy that had done it with an XJ. He said he had a problem with long sharp corners, the oil pickup would go dry and loose oil pressure. That is if my memory serves me correctly
