Have you ever worked all day and didn't feel like you really accomplished anything?
Thats me today.
I make more progress when I knock off an hour early and hit the garage before dinner.
Radiator is as mounted as it can be Until the steering box is re-located. I started doing that and then realized that the Jeep steering shaft doesn't fIt the Saginaw 402 box that i'm running. Only a couple more things like this to figure out before the teardown.

Since it's obvious that nobody gives a shit about my never-ending list of side projects, I'll bring this back on topic.

I'm building a Jeep. It's going to be pretty cool. It's cooler than your Jeep.

I finished mounting the steering, radiator, exhaust and other stuff. I never liked having the skid double as a crossmember, so I built a crossmember for the trans, and will keep the skid as just that. Fullthrottle sold me a soft top, its pretty cool. Strong engine and rebuilt trans are ready to go.

I think I'm ready to take it all apart for final welding and paint.
