Maybe jack a wheel and do a pinion count, my tag says 5:29 but was changed. Be easy with no engine or tranny.
4.65 would be pretty tall with the .65 tranny ratio.
Bonnyville salt flats time!!!

Todays Pictures

Randy welded up one of the engine compartment panels.

.



.
Mark, Rick and Randy cleaned up the stainless sheet after removing the plastic coating so that it would cut easier and cleaner.
.
.
Mike was getting another piece measured in preparation for the assembly.
.
.
Randy and Mark worked at trimming the stainless to fit the engine compartment panel with a plasma cutter.
.
.
Mark held the stainless piece while Mike performed a final trim to get it to fit onto the welded engine compartment panel.
.
.
Meanwhile on the outside we were in the middle of a very heavy thunderstorm that caught Nancy Rempbert running around to close up the outside compartment doors.

Default Haircut time at the Cantina Dupree

Donna trimmed Nancy, Randy and I and then tried to find something on John to trim so he didn't feel left out.

Another rainy day, Chief, along with a cold makes it hard to remember just how good you were feelin' just a week ago about it.

http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...792#post235792

But time passes quickly, and the groceries too tend to add up quickly don't they? Especially when you are feeding the whole crew! And wow, just wow, it's now up to 6k??? That's wild! Maybe it's time to treat you and Carol to a little grub if it's you both alone who are footing that whole bill?

Don't know, but just saying, and none of my beeswax...but that's a lot of do, ray, me for anyone to have to shell out for food unless it's your kid's wedding!

its just money,and it was just a joke.
Fact is,everyone here has been cooking and bringing food,thats what WOGgers do.
But,we do eat well,and the fun never stops.

Good to hear Chief, and while I don't have much to offer other than my cooking skills, and a couple other things, , I too have been following this thread and wish we could have been there to partake in the restoration, the comradeship, and great food.

You all make us interlopers, jealous of your good times and work.

Carry on!
