OK it took me the entire day to get it done but I was able to make a safe haven for my M1009 build. Still Beware. Lost for Words and First in Line are creeping on us all. I seen he had activity yesterday. I am no CSI technician as far as computers but I can see when he is on line. When I went out to my garage it was full blown mess. Rebuilding and painting my barn project had taken over the empty bay. P1000274.JPG After sorting, burning and cleaning up things I was ready to put Built in a Barn 1 back in the bay. I still have room to work on my barn painting and repair project. The bay is clean and dry. P1000275.JPGP1000276.JPG Now Built in a Barn 1 has a safe haven to stay out of the rain and sun till other plans can be made. I was going to wash it but figured why introduce water to it to stay dry. And it will get dusty in here anyway. Dust protects against moisture. P1000279.JPGP1000278.JPGP1000280.JPGP1000281.JPG And every thing is accessible. Thank you for the support. Take Care and Be Safe.

Rick,
Now that you may have your latest build for a while you should rename it with something catchy like you did with Easter Find.

1986 CUCV M1009 Decade after being wrecked of course is too long. Built in a Barn 1 is is good but still too long. How about just Barn Built 2 because Easter Find was Barn Built 1

Been so many I lost track. I started redoing CUCV's back in 1995 and have been doing it ever since. I also built a members M1009 SSDV I believe is his user name. Thank you for the support. I have 2 more to go. I am still pondering NOT to make the convertible. It would be like hacking up a 1969 Z/28. It has value being what it was from new after that it would just be a hacked up M1009 to many. I want it to retain value and not just be another hacked up CUCV. There are lots of them out there. I don't want to add to that lot. Thank you for your positive encouragement. take Care and Be Safe.

Yup, Rick did my current M1009 and, unlike my first M1009 purchase (not from Rick), I couldn't be happier with Rick's work. I picked my truck up right after I got back from the sandbox in 2016 and I have driving and towing with her ever since. She runs like a top, hasn't really skipped a beat and is still looking great.

Rick, if I could afford it, I would love to buy the current project from you in a heartbeat. Just for grins, if you want to PM me a price, I can see what I may able to do. One never knows.
