I was invited to bring my Jeep to a USAF concert earlier this week in Irvine, CA. This update has a full recap of the event, plus a look at the essential ‘Jeep’ books a Jeep owner should have!
A small update this month, I take a look at how I shot the studio-looking photos of the Jeep without it being in an actual studio! Then I showcase some finds at a local militaria show including another TM manual, a WW2 Jeep toy, and some wartime jeep photos!
This week’s update includes a trip to Lyon Air Museum with the Jeep for an event and then a photoshoot around Old Town Orange! I continue work on a friend’s Fuel Filter and start work on his Air Cleaner for a full restoration. Finally, a look at a ‘smaller’ Jeep project I’ve continued.

Then, I finished the MD Juan grill display that I had worked on in August which is now hanging in my garage. Finally, various flea market finds including tools and how to identify correct Schrader screw type tire valve caps.
