    If you remove those tanks, you'll have plenty of room for a lithium battery pack...

    Lithium Battery !!!! OMG you want me to carry a bomb around under my Wagon! ..... That's something you never see, a Prius drive train swap into a Wagon or about anything else for that matter. I expect to see Tesla offering electric car kits any time now. It seems like anything that pops into …lan Musk's head is a reality in just a few minutes.

    Gary - Since I've been working on my CJ5 for a few years and my Harley Shovelhead before that now my SAE wrenches get regular work outs. The other day I was stunned and oddly a little hurt to find a 12mm nut on one of the Wagons oil lines. For consistency, if it were a regular bolt it would have been GONE, but since it's part of an oil line I am stuck with one metric part.

    Hmmmmm, drifting along with no apparent course ........
    Okay so it's been done, was a joking throw away comment anyway. I'm not much of an environmental anything. It's my goal in life to buy a bull dozer to dig a hole large enough to safely burn tires............ Easy now, I'm just kidding.

    So, why is it good to have multiple people viewing pictures? On another forum a member noticed that the '51 is missing a grill bar, the top one. I never even noticed it was gone. Of course as these things go the missing bar is absolutely screaming at me ... "I'm MISSING!" Some are available locally and will look at them today. THe nice thing about the early grill bars, they are not stainless steel or plated in any way. Even a cruddy one can be cleaned up and painted.


    Edit: Later in the day. Found, bead blasted and primed. Now to mount the grill top bar for a full set.

    15 minutes and a Saws-All later and look what happened:IMG_0759.jpg

    The yellow tank was the water tank, before that according to the text on the tank, it was an Oxygen tank. Exactly like the ones an aircraft O2 tank. It really is a nice piece of engineering. Now I'm wondering what it can be used for. The fuel tank is obviously an orphan from who knows what. It is in nice condition both inside and out. After getting accustomed to them being under the Wagon the bottom seems down right empty now.

    That is a ww2 airplane O2 tank. Lots of uses. My friends Dad used them for air thaks for a home made compressor.
    You can get a stock repo tank out of poly. Very thick and comes with strap mounts. That is what I am using. most likely cheaper than finding one then having it cleaned

    That is not my regular gas tank, it is one that was mounted right behind the drivers seat, under the floor. Not a good location, especially since it was in the middle where a drive shaft would need to be. The stock tank is draining right now. The gas is a VERY ugly very thick coffee color. It will be pulled and inspected tonight.

    The O2 tank would add storage capacity to the shop air compressor.
