Default 1941 MB Slatty/ Project Slat Nasty

Well on an impulse Craigslist buy I got myself a 1946 CJ2A. It came sans motor, but form the pictures looked relatively solid so I figured what the heck it's only $250. I learned something, you get what you pay for.

Yeah doesn't look to bad but from about the middle of the cowl back the entire body is made from torch cut (and not cleaned up) 1/8" plate. I should be able to run this thing through a brick wall backwards when it's done.

The future interior... under all the surface rust. And yes I know my colomn and steering wheel are fawked

And a better shot of the steering colomn. That's it for pics at the moment cause my camera took a dump.

Remove the tub from the frame.
Fix the one frame crack.
Add stock rear YJ leaves all around.
Waggy 44's (still need'em). Keeping stock axles for now.
T90/Dana 18 combo (cause I already have them)
Probably a Buick 225 for motorvation (Because I already have the stuff, just need a motor)
Plan is currently SOA for the leaves. Now SUA.
36x12.50 15 SX's (need these too) Now 33x12.50's Mud terrain but not sure which ones yet
Put the body back on and bedline the underneath and inside.
Need new fenders and grill, probably hood a grill coming, gonna make due with what I have now
Fab up a cage and some bumpers
Rustoleum anything I didn't bedline and call the thing done.

It all sounds so easy but I am on a very limited budget and that is why this is going to be called Forever. I've wanted a Flattie forever, I want to keep this forever, and it will probably take me forever to even get this thing going let alone finish it. Realized that Forever is a gay name so now it's called Flat Nasty!

I welcome any and all input, this will be my first ground up build so I'll take any advice or help that comes my way.

Again this is gonna be slow so hang with me if things don't get done as fast as some of you guys are capable of.
