Sorry guys, just haven't had the time between work, rock climbing and riding bikes (looks like 2011 is the year for rediscovering the joy in riding bikes). Yesterday, we were at the pump track till past 8pm and today I ended up putting 38 miles on the mountain bike.

The new pump track 10 mins from my house, with Todd (one of the planners of the track) riding his daughter's bike:

No no no... Not rock climbing, rock CRAWLING. In order to do that you need to finish your rabbit rig:p:

I really like the bunnies in the cups.

I think this project is going about as fast as my horse trailer rebuild. One year and counting.

I feel so lonely. It's almost December again. All I wanted last year for Christmas was Izwack... and an update... and I'm sitting here... all alone. No explorer updates.

My buddy's have these Jeeps and they're all like "yea my shit climbs rocks... blah blah frickin blah" and here an glimmer of hope for the Explorers comes along, building, correction OVERBUILDING, what is a piece of history, marvelous machining and extreme engineering - all from a handsome stud, and he leaves us out to dry. His excuse - biking?! Wtf. You go from welding and cutting STEEL and ALUMINUM and CARBON FIBER to... BIKING!!! You could at least MAN it up a little and say 'working out' or playing with some ladies, somethin', anything. I had looked at this thread, grinning... telling my Jeep friends, their off-the-shelf out-of-the-magazine lift kits were nothing when compared to this AWESOMENESS...

BUT... in all my hazing, quality takes time. AND NOW IT'S GETTING COLD. So get your ass off the couch and do what you do best. Make me proud. Make us all proud. We're gonna have to sit back and raise our glasses for our glorious leader. Something. Sheesh. :)

Sorry guys - no real progress. I tried to work on it over the X-mas to New Years time frame but my Atlas 6" lathe broke working on the steering/throttle components - which is kind of good because a 6" lathe doesnt really get me anywhere. So I bought another lathe (a 10" this time) from NY. After I modify the lathe stand, I should be making some progress on this thing.

THis pic has so much win.

2 piece, solid aluminum bunny cake pan.

Maybe a cake will get this rolling? Now, who can make the cake?

Hmm, lets try a different approach.

Elmer Fudd is on his way over to get the Wabbits. Only way to stop him is to finish the build, and use it's awesomeness to run the Fudd into the Mudd.

Your move.
:D
