Just when you thought I was done roaming the "WIP" halls, I'm back already. Couldn't wait to get started on the JJ Tribute hauler. The paint will be the same, basically decaled the same.

Not sure about wheels and tires, but, I guess I'm gonna need 8 of whatever they are.

This might take a while. Can you say, "Got Bondo?"

First pic is extended crew cab, second is bed / hauler platform, (pull out ramps will be on rack in bed under hauler ramp),
3rd is the whole enchilada, 4th is the "Dachsund" shot and finally, what's left over.

Darn your eyes Luis !! I did not need a project attached to a project that's attached to another project. This is the worst idea to come down the pike since the previous worst idea to come down the pike.

So anyway, I'm thinkin' the front should be the BBQ since (wait for it) that's where the grille is, plus the windshield will make an excellent hinged cover for it. Then the back can be storage for coolers, supplies and ice. At least you can keep ice there until you fire up the grille. Needs a cover too. Hinged on the side maybe..........

If anyone gets annoyed because SOMEBODY just added a week or two to this build, I've set up a Hotline. That number in Cali is 1-800-HIT-LUIS.

That would be Jungle Jim Liberman. You can see the car build in On The Workbench and the completed model in Drag Racing. If you can't find them, let me know and I'll grab the links. Right now I'm busy working on Luis' stupid BBQ.

Naw, I'll handle it. I'd prolly get kicked off after harrassing you when you post pics of it.

I went to the 1-800 call center. They were taking the operator out on a stretcher cuz the switchboard overloaded and blew up. :o

Outstanding, now I need 10 wheels instead of 8 !! Not to mention the hydraulic ramp. Could you see Jungle firing up the car on the ramp, blip the motor to jump it over the cab into the staging lanes? Naw, too "Dukes of Hazzard."

That is soooooo kewl !!

Here's the aligning, reinforcing pieces installed. The rear side windows will be cut in just behind the front side windows at an angle similar to the front of the front side window. Didja' get that?

And, of course, several hours were wasted today on Luis' trailer..........

The Deora has been used as a base for so many different variations ever since it first came out!
A few months after it was first released guy here in town entered one that was extended into a custom car carrier.
It wasn't near as radical as what you are doing though! Just extended out back with dual rear axles and a finished wood cover that I believe he sat the custom car Cherry Pie on!
I remember seeing one in a magazine from the late 60's or early 70's. Can't remember what Magazine it was back then though.

Looking forward to seeing this one done! B)

See that little trailer looking do-hickey made from leftover parts? Last picture in post # 11, just above your post.. BBQ grille in the nose, storage in the back.

Admire your gumption!


Thanx, Dog. Know where I can pick up some more gumption? I'm running low after starting this.

Starting on the frame and interior tub. Lots of room to play with. Might put in a hot tub. KIDDING !!!! But I am open to (inexpensive) ideas.

MEASURING ????!!!!???? I've heard of people using sticks with marks and numbers on them. Is that what you're talking about??
Sorry Tony, everything I do is "Eyeball Engineering" with a dash of Kentucky Windage thrown in for good measure. The only way I knew it wasn't plum on the first mock up was, when I laid it on the right side it felt flat. Then when I put it on it's other side, it was like a miniature rocking horse. It looked right, but no. I took a slice out of the seam between the wheel wells and it straightened right up.

So, out of 12 cuts (I did use tape to guide me), only one correction.

I'll do another update later with pics. Got the interior fitted and starting on the frame.

Thanx for peekin'.

Ah!, see this is were we all get confused with what people write, when I asked about where the BBQ was, what I meant was who's place was the BBQ at?, probably at Luis's. My Bad.
