Still need to fix the rear brake line, install all 3 braided brake lines and re-hang the gas tank. However, she is on the ground again.

Took this thing for a spin yesterday finally. Have a couple of issues yet, but she is driveable enough. The steering wheel is 90* out and she still doesn't like to idle in gear. Other than that it runs smooth, and feels like there is a bit more power available since the motor is no longer lifting itself off the frame.

New wheels and tires should be on Thursday, and as long as I get my pool painted tomorrow I can take out the front seats and carpet and put a new floor in it. I also need to pop a dent out of the drivers door and lube all of the windows. That and a little bit more sticker removal and we should actually be able to get around at the dunes this weekend.

A little bit of flareside fords excellent fab work. I'm just cleaning up some edges with a grinder that I didn't have time for earlier today and hitting it with some paint tonight.

The wood is about half gone. I have been doing it with a heat gun or on sunny days with a razor blade. I plan to hit it hard tomorrow and Friday. Might try to get my quarter panel patch panels on tomorrow. My wheels should be in tomorrow as well.

Portor Cable, Electric Orbital with the velcro style 52 grit pads. They will be off in 20 minutes per side.

Or if you would like to borrow my 24 inch Air Board with 16 grit.............although you will find every weeke spot in the metal.

I would like to leave most of the paint underneath the stickers still on the heep. But thanks for the offer.

I might rattle can it in the future, but a set of new front fenders and square tube for the rocker are the only definites on the stuff I don't have already.

Since the rain won't stop and this thing no longer fits in the garage, it looks like it will still be partially wood grain and I won't get my quarters on before we leave today. I do have to get the trailer harness on still though.

The roof supports and the roof have separated. The glue/foam is old and brittle and sick of listening to it any body fixed this issue before?

I have done almost nothing to this thing all summer except pull dirt bikes.

Grab some from that shop you work at and bring it over. Jeep is loud on the bumps.

I drove this galactic P.O.S. the other day and the 3rd water pump I have put on it reminded me when it took a shit that, I need to pull the motor out of this thing and take it apart. The end is in sight for my basement, and with my bored ass not working still, this thread may be seeing some bumps in the near future.

Anybody with a heated pole barn want to be my friend? I have lots of tools and I'm pretty good about cleaning up after myself.
