Welded bumper up, it's part way finished. Need to lay winch in to get the thing fully boxed in and I would like to have the grill and engine in place prior to burning the bumper home.

Got clocking ring spacer made and installed

Need to clear for the top 2 holes with the DD machine dual clocking ring for D300 to Ax-15FWIW
Pulled front axle out of the way and welded the frame back together. Fishplated the outer. Tried to get fancy and put a "509" in but it'll probably end up getting filled with weld and ground down.

I need suggestions for the inner fishplate,it's bent badly. I tried to take a pic but couldn't get the 3-d contour to show up in 2d...go figure

As it sits now:

Going to wheel the cherokee tomorrow and get back to putting a fishplate on the inner, putting engine back in, working on flat belly Sunday.
