Looking good Jim.

How come, in image #30 (right rear brake), the brake bleeder is on the low side of the caliper?

Good eye. The calipers from Wilwood are universal so they actually have bleeders on both pistons. It's just out of view around the shock.

Geoboy finished up the tank tonight and I call it a work of art.....he's not as impressed. Between the exhaust and the tank and other misc. crap, we've spent nearly 3 weeks. Exhaust installed, brakes complete, So tomorrow is the day it will roll. Just have to paint the leading edge of the front clip and fenders and then swap out the windows and we're nearly home free. Ziebart on Tuesday and then I can put the bumpers and rock rails and tube fenders back on.
For what it's worth, this is nearly a complete build after all. I thought as a body swap would have been pretty straight forward but looking back, there's only two brackets that I didn't remake or modify in some fashion. They are the front shock mounts and braces. EVERY other suspension part on this is brand new. Plus I made a few improvements like cable operated T'case.

The tank looks awesome, don't be so hard on yourself Bryce, it takes a lot of years to end up like VonDirt and the like.

Ziebart? You're going to take all the time to paint and detail the entire undercarriage and then let some monkey with an undercoating gun screw it all up? Please tell me you're just having them coat the insides of the doors & quarters, if you wanted the underside rustproofed it would have been easier on the old chassis....or with a 12" temporary body lift....so they don't mess up all your hard work.

Mobile.............
Lots of little things but it sure feels good to run it up and down the road.
Sits a bit high as I've got about 200 lbs in the shocks and over 6" of shaft is showing. Should be about 2" lower when I get the pressure dialed in.
The Ziebart work is the interior sheet metal box areas.

Should be fairly easy. Not a whole lot different than a 2dr Tracker like Geoboy did. Just as long as you don't mind giving up about 6 months of your life, LITERALLY!
That's the beauty of a Cj,YJ, TJ, JK..........you can go to a catalog and pick the boxes that represent the depth of your CC and just wait till the boxes arrive.
If I remember they have a V6 and a full frame. Could be a nice project.

Not really window protection but it will be getting some tubes on the inside and outside. The project was long enough as it is and there are too many other things to do right now so this winter it'll get torn down and we'll spend the time needed to do the roll protection the right way.
