I'll be at the show and can bring most of the large item's I've got in the classifieds if the stuff is paid for. Medium tow bars, deuce/m37/CUCV/ and other parts.

Some things I'm looking to buy at the show:

m36 side rack assembly like pictured. I really only need just the 4 stakes for one.

Good m35a2 front bumper, straight and not rotted.
Good m35a2 passenger fender (I've got a gasser fender but would like the multi style). A bit of rust is ok.
m59 or m215 dump truck cab protector:D
multifuel engine stop cable
16ft chain with pear links (BII for m35a2 w/w)

m37 passenger seat bottom
original yellow bridge plate numbers in good shape

I am looking for a cargo cover for a M105A2 trailer that is in good shape, doesn't have to be perfect, that is also a reasonable price. I am sure there will be other stuff. Looks like maybe new front axle zipper boots for a 1984 M923 that last longer than 2 years like my current ones.

And if all the modern modes of transport aren't available the mule is always ready to work for the big loads. Come by Kublos and we"ll be there to help.

Couple years ago we had some real cold temps. Anyone remember seeing my lizard at that show?
Why, yes. I remember your lizard. As I recall you were quite proud of it and I don't blame you a bit. I'm still jealous of the number of cuties from the wedding reception over in the pavilion who were giggling while lining up to get a turn petting it. It's not every guy who can stand around holding his coat open for a line of gals to pet his lizard.....

I thought you were going to pop smoke and head to Texas? As we discussed last year this may well be my last Sussex show as Household 6 and I are PCSing to Fort Retirement at our Stokes County, NC place by fall.

It looks like I'm bringing an M923A2 with trailer to Sussex. We've got 6 spaces in the usual covered outdoor building with Ed K. from the LZ Army-Navy. I need to thin the herd on parts so I don't have to move the stuff to NC. I thought I was going to make Jim Henry's Denton, NC show next week but my civvy cargo trailer needs a new axle that won't arrive in time for that. After the move that show will be only an hour away from home though. I've never had a show closer than 4 hours before.....

Forgot about the wedding party but the elixir that night probably helped with that. I now recall they sure kept coming back for that shine.

Contract is signed on house IVO Corpus. First load goes out in mid May. Second load goes out in mid June. Weather should help fix some of the family health issues. I will still have to come back here to work until I get transferred. If need be, I can hang it up in 22 months and just be an Uber driver (LOL).

I'm also selling as much as we can now and I wont have much in the way of milspec stuff left by move except the mb and common 1. No shows close to there and being near the water and not planning to get storage; time to downsize.

It'll be good to see you again.

CARNAC the.....whatever.

Well, we'll have to tip a glass to our moves and p[ending retirement....

We're downsizing from two of these Morton buildings here on our farm to a place with no shop until I can build one so I still have a lot of stuff to sell. I coldn't find a Sussex buy, sell, trade thread so I started on here:

http://www.steelsoldiers.com/showth...x-Buy-Sell-Trade-Thread&p=1999667#post1999667

Here's why I still have stuff to clear out.....

There will be NO drones allowed during the show, reasons start with , 1>> The Fair grounds has a no drone policy, 2 >> The MTA now has a NO drone policy at ALL MTA events since our Insurance carrier said so ... while we were updating for this years show.

It is amazing how snooty the drone guys are getting ... Man it cant be that bad... LOL ... The Black Hawk may be coming Sunday 11 am . So far so good, almost all the channels have been hit... So to be real we could not allow anyway, .......

:recovry4x4: LOL :)

Ok,
some big things I can bring for sale...

800 series hood. Has rot in front but straight. I don't want much for it and would rather see it go to someone who needs it than scrap yard. Make me an offer reasonable enough to warrant bringing it.

900 series air cleaner assembly 100$

m818 fuel tanks in very good condition 150$each with mounts.

decent M35 cab 300$ must be paid in advance.

(1) 800 series rear axle converted to S cam brakes. All new parts on it . Perfect for a 5 ton bobber project. Brakes, drums s cams all like new. 1000$ not negotiable. Must be paid for in advance.

5 ton bobber kit complete. 700$ and must be paid for in advance.

complete TH700 setup for cUCv conversion. It is from a civvy diesel and I have everything including TV bracket. Trans is in unknown condition although it drove around in my yard and seemed functional the truck was in too poor condition for proper road test . 600$ and must be paid for in advance also.

i need time to pull some of this stuff so if you want something, sooner is better.

i can provide detailed pics if you contact me and give me a number to text to.
more stuff to come....
