Dads homewrecker willed down

Postby Caitybug » April 21st, 2017, 1:12 pm

Got a mighty big project on my hands.
My Dad got this jeep years ago in a box and built it up I helped along but
was a lot younger and was mostly the tool bitch unless he needed small hands to get
in a tight spot lol.
Throughout the years we had TONS of fun in his baby named the home wrecker.
The trans and motor are locked together he worked on it and moved on to the next
toy (Kaiser 715) then after that one get got a duce(one big bitch).
He got sick and diagnosed with terminal cancer and had less than 2 months to live,
I moved back home in Fl from SC to help him out with my daughter.
We were going to put it back together but he lost use of his right arm and hand completely,
Between that chemo and radiation he wasn't the same and had a hard time staying focused on
a conversation let alone a full blown project. He ended up making it 10 months and passed away on Dec 20 2016.
He willed down his M151 to me because he knew i always wanted it and loved it.
Im excited but am beginner status in mechanics so expect some simple crazy questions.
