finnaly feeling better ,must be the crazy weather ,working on the qtr cut prepping for install ,then a buddy runs this commander in for some needed attention. brakes almost flat tire and bid on spotting it in
this thing is trashed out.SOB runs good though .love how the calipers have Jeep casted in them. going to try and gett the cut at least clamped on today.
got an idea for this battered hood .more on that later.it is fixable .

The TJ ,weel she wrecked it ,slid off the road and wipped the qtr right off the thing .peeled the sheetmetal off ,ripped the spot welds clean, couldnt save it .
and the jeep hood was folded over the windsheild frame.


the Ford hood is a junkyard find and he didnt need just a gotta have it .small ding, other than that just a color match.was ford oval blue.

Nice Vans RV-7! I fly R/C and have a 1/4 scale RV-4. Love those planes.

I replaced the flares on my 97 TJ last fall and found rot in my tub, I'm gonna need the same thing done to mine, same side. That will be expensive but I'm hoping to get the whole thing repainted.

Yea Van really knocked out of the park with the RV series .I to fly R/C.but have gone to micro electrics. we kit bashed the RV-4 to harmon rockets
the beauty of the RV-7 is you can build it a bunch of different ways and get a fully aerobatic all aluminum 2 place beast for 50Gs
