Re: The Land Lubber

I wanted to use plywood and a kreg jig to eliminate the need for so many 2x- style boards. One of my wife's many skills is being a seamstress. So making a pattern was not much of a challenge to her, but I found it very unpleasant to say the least. (and just because the curve is perfect for one wall, doesn't mean the next one will). Glad I got the pics up, I have been on Jeep forums and off road forums, and have not had the same challenges for posting pics, but I'll get you guys something to look at. also I think it should be said, that the teal floor paint, and soon to be other colors on the floor, is only a layer of paint for overkill, I have old paint sitting around and I wanted to coat that cheap wood with something. anyway happy building/nervous breakdowns.

Re: The Land Lubber

If you still have the stock exhaust ie large muffler under the battery box. What I did with my 1996 AARE
was to take off the muffler and take the elbow that comes out under the motor and facing forward and
turn it 180 degrees to face the rear and install a small resonator on it and take the tailpipe from the original
muffler and cut a short piece of straight pipe out under the bumper. Found a resonator with 6 inch outside
diameter and about 18 inches long but 5 inch inside diameter all the way through this eliminated the 4 in
inlet muffler which reversed the exhaust flow and came out the same end at 5 inch. So from the elbow out
its now all 5 inch. The resonator/muffler I picked up at Oreillys Auto parts.

The Land Lubber

Finally put the app on my phone. Now I should be able to post photos easier.
We are still converting away. Hung a tankless water heater most recently. Hopefully from here on out no gaps in updates. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1438694918.574554.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1438694937.508473.jpg

Gotta ask...is that water heater an "indoor" or "outdoor" model? I see the vent stack but that doesn't tell me much.

It is indoor. I will cut the vent when we plumb it in. We looked at both, and the indoor is the one we chose.

Roger the "Indoor". A lot of folks are not aware that the outdoor (cheaper) models can produce enough CO2 to be harmful if not totally isolated and vented to the outside. Glad to see you went the safe route.
