Yeah it would be a first, but then you would start a build thread. Tear It all down, lose all motivation and never finish it. Me on the other hand will be rocking the Shit out of my barbie jeep.

I plan to get it done, just frustrated with lack of progress. I'm sure you can relate!! You're welcome to come drink beer anytime but you know damn well that won't help speed things up the least bit

Drink a beer after you have made progress or certain accomplishments on the Jeep. That’s what I do... Almost like a personal rewards club.... Sounds retarded but it works for me. This nice weather brings out motivation for projects usually…. After I pick up my beadlocks sometime next week (because 1 tire is still off the wheel from wheeling) I will cruise the jeep over to your house…. Been needing to take a cruise and its mostly back roads to your place anyhow.

I don't have a problem making progress, there are just other projects I've been working on instead. But you're welcome to swing by with the Jeep anytime.....somehow I've never even seen that thing in person.

Almost 5 pages with no progress? That's just sad.....makes me feel almost like Skooterbuilt

After a long delay and about eleventy billion other projects, I've started back at it. Still a long way to go, but progress is progress.






There's still a bunch of tube to add but it's coming along. And yes, the windshield, top, and door surrounds all still fit perfect.

How bad is the drivers floorboard? I know your running a frame reinforcement but just wondering.

It's in really good shape; one of the primary reasons I got the new tub. There's one little spot by the drain hole that I'll probably patch but overall it's nice and solid. There will be plenty of bracing and reinforcements to be added too.

I'm not. It's still a work in progress and I haven't made the new ones yet. I left the whole B-pillar hoop in, hole sawed thru holes in the stock location to help aid in mock-up, made the A-to-C hoops, then tacked them in place. Then used the stock B pillar as height reference and bent up the top tube before removing the stock piece. Next step is to bend up the B pillar verticals and replace those, then more in the rear section, triangulation, shock mounts, seat mounts, dash area, etc. I just posted pics of where I made it so far, but there's still a lot to go.

Looks good. I was thinking the same as Strangler, but this makes sense.
