Well shit, I will have to get to putting this jeep together. Can't let you be the only big block up there having fun!! Mine don't have quite the work done yours does but it should be fun when done, and have enough power to break stuff when i get to frisky with it.

Well after pretty much locking myself in my shop for the last 3 weeks, the bodywork on the main body is complete!!!!

There's 1 little dent that I need to fix on the hood after we pull it off this week and 1 little spot on the roof.

Ideally it will be in primer next weekend so the final blocking can start.




and a couple pics of where the rust repair pannels were installed at the cab corner and the tire carrier

Not yet. I may have to wait until next year for that unless I sell some stuff to free up some cash.
I need to get the main paint work done now and finish getting the driveline set up for the paddles before the end of March.

Yup... doors, primer, paint, intake, and a fresh windshield.

All that will leave is the spool, MSD box, and that other special "paint" we discussed

Tweak- I can't wait either!!!
