    Walking Dead - Daryl Dixon's New Bike Replica Build

    The mesh is welded. I will tell you this was THE BIGGEST PITA to get right. For the exhaust ones, I ended up making a mold and using a shop press to form the shape of the inserts. As for the throttle cable, yeah, just went to one. So far, so good. Been running for about a year like that...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    THEN, she starts running a little hot…at least according to the gauge. Before this the gauge didn’t work, but I narrowed it down to a wiring issue and got it up and running. The needle tended to live right in this area, occasionally creeping into the red. Either the sender is bad, the ground is...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    I REALLY need to work on providing more regular updates. A lot has happened since the last one. So picking up right where we left off: Got the transmission and transfer case pulled off. Found out what that awful noise was when pushing in the clutch. Looks like the input shaft sleeve was...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    Many updates, but sadly none of them are Twister related. I had stopped work for the last couple of months in order to remodel the garage to a proper workshop. I used Google Sketch Up to model the cabinets I liked and everything else that needed to go in the garage. After settling on a layout I...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    At this point, I am waiting on funding to arrive for paintwork. Therefore, I decided to tackle some smaller things while waiting. Starting with the headlight buckets. The reason I wasn’t able to adjust them… The harness must have been the only thing holding them in. I looked around for...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    All right, it has been a while since my last update. Things got a little challenging a few weeks ago when I started resealing the bottom end. The kit that I ordered was an Omix-Ada lower end seal kit that included the oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front main seal, oil pump seal, and a few...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    Got the Goodyear Duratrac 33/12.5/15 tires put on today. The bed of the truck looks too high, the whole truck is raked forward. Turns out, there is a 3” lift block in the rear. Possible on top of 3” lift leaf springs. When I get a chance, I’ll take the blocks out and see how it sits. Also...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    Alright, alright, enough of the interior. What about those exterior bits?!? We will start with the front of the truck and work our way back. 1. OEM Flat brush guard. There are two types, the “V” shaped, and the flat-ish one. The flatter of the two is the screen accurate one. 2. OEM Chrome...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    On to the interior bits: So what’s on that dash?!? In shot number one, we see 2 compasses and a camcorder. In shot number two, we see one of the compasses, a handheld radio, and the camcorder. In shot number three, we see a Nikon SLR camera. 1. A vintage Airguide Scout Marine Compass...

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build

    Twister - Jo's Jeep J10 Replica Build Now that the Daryl Bike is pretty much done, I needed something else to fill my time with. This project has been a long time in the making. Ever since I first saw Twister, I fell in love with full size jeeps, especially the J10. A couple of years back, I...
