Safely Equipment Repairs
arrived at the cabin and Stephen's place, the first order of
business was to make a few repairs to Paul's 1965 Kaiser Jeep
CJ-5. Last trip, the drivers side seat belt mount had ripped
out of the body where it mounts to the rear fender well. The
seatbelt was an older style lap belt and because safe equipment is
important, especially when your manual brakes are marginal at best
when wet, it was a good idea to repair the seatbelt mount.
The lap belt might have been a minimal safety harness but it was
better than nothing. Perhaps a 5 point Simpson Racing
Harness would look cool but it would be serious over kill for this
While Paul was busy fabricating and replacing his
seatbelt mounting bracket, the rest of the gang was checking out
the scenery out side. Looks like there will be plenty of
firewood come spring time.
