Progress Is Slow, But Bumpers Have Been Added
After seeing this lead shot, I'm guessing that you're not wondering so much how progress is going.
Anyone who is able to complete a project on time has either cut corners or has gnarly amounts of money and resources. Since I don't want to cut corners and I get paid about enough to live in a cardboard box, you can see that progress is slow. Off Road Evolution is doing a great job on every piece of Jinxy that they work on, but someone has to pay the bills, so I always encourage them to work on their customer's vehicles rather than my big, red magazine project.
But nevertheless, we are making progress! The suspension pieces that needed to be ordered have finally come in, the axles are basically completed save for some new electric Ox Locker shifters we are going to try out, and I think we'll actually be able to roll Jinxy into a paint booth in another month.
But this month we got to work on some new bumpers for Jinxy. The bumpers that were on it were close to what I wanted, but some corners had been cut on the front one, and the rear one was just too heavy for the way I wanted to use this truck. I worked with Off Road Evolution, driving their fabricators nuts, imagining and then revamping each idea two or three times. I'm just glad they didn't push my truck out in front of a bus with all the changes and additions I kept making. But once done, Off Road Evolution had built some bitchin' bumpers for this 1994 Dodge Ram project.
