Thanks. I didn't even pay attention to that when i was taking pictures.
I am slowly making progress. Would you be able to help me bend a grill hoop and stinger sometime when you have some spare time.

Picked up my paint for the jeep today. I was at Walmart, and they had 10 cans of OD green, So i picked them up. Also got 6 cans of gloss black for the cage. Hopefully getting the tube fenders finished up this weekend, along with the rear tow points, and cage tie ins. Also going to incorporate a .50cal ammo can for a center counsel.

yeah that is fine, I will be out working on mine on the 20th if you want to come out, we could bend something up then. Also if you need someone to finish weld, if you want we can put your jeep on the tow dolly and bring it tomyplace one Saturday

Got a little bit of work done the other day. We got the tabs made for mounting the harnesses, the d-ring tab for the rear tow point, got the knuckles pulled, and ready for new ball joints. We also got the front tube fenders welded up and the new driveshaft for the rear cut down, Now I just need to get a piece of tube so that the shaft can be welded together.

Got the cage tie in's completely done now. Also got the rear tow points and the front bumper welded. Primed the frame. Gonna try to get a few more things done off the list this week. I will post some pics after the barn clears out from all of the smoke. Now I am going to do some more painting on a friends jeep.

Fuel tank cage is built, and bolted in. Tank is mounted in the cage. Now I just need to get the covers for the fuel tank finished, and hook up the fuel lines. It ended up being a little bit bigger than I wanted, and takes up a little more room, but it works fine, so that is all that matter right now. Just trying to get it running, and ready to take out by the first week in April.

Now that the weather is staying nice I am ready to get this thing going so that i can start driving it. I am going to hopefully get the cage out in the next day or so, finish up the harness mounts, and then get some paint on it. Also working on getting the fuel tank finished, and then some paint on the body, and some form of bed liner on the inside. Need to get the rear driveshaft welded up, the front axle put back together, steering linkages built, the spring perches welded, and the rear packs rebuilt.

Jeep is painted. I didn't like how the paint sprayed on a few spots, but it still looks decent. And it will prolly get another coat of paint in the next year. I really just want to get this thing out on the road, and the trails. Roll cage needs one more quick coat of paint tomorrow. Painting the frame tomorrow as long as the weather is decent. I will throw up some new pics when I get a chance.

Cage is done, and back in the jeep. I ended up just painting the inside of the tub for now, as I don't want to spend the extra money on bedliner right now. The tube fenders need another couple coats of paint and then they can go back on. Gonna so some painting on the frame, and work on finishing my intake in the next day or so. Still need to get some pics when I make some room in the barn, and have decent light.

Here are the newest pics that I took today. I still have a lot to do, but I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

highly recommend getting rid of the plastic seats. can't see them helping your back out with a hard landing (whether jump or roll).
