wow! I didin't know anyone was following or checking in on my boring-ass build thread Thanks for the comments and Jeepaholic I will pm you the info you asked for.

yes it has been a while since I updated Yancy's build thread, but life happens.

Back to the build...

So after the tires got put on. not much happened and I wanted to get it out for a test drive, so possium8 helped me bleed the brakes and after running out of gas while it idled I was on my way. then the problem showed up... a big ole bulge, plus 2 smaller bluges in the driver front NDT




imo, after poking it, it felt lime the upper layer had de-lammed from the lower layer. so I called my cohort and we discussed it. he contacted Coker, who then contacted me and the ordeal began.

after seeing the pictures above, Coker felt that the problem was due to faulty mounting and that the bead was torn during mounting. i explained that this was not possible. after a lengthy discussion they insisted on seeing pictures of the tire off the bead. I said fine. I circled the problem areas and broke the bead of the tire.







so once coker saw that those images they asked me to dismount the tire and they would exchange it under warranty. lucky me, my buddy Bob (whom I got them from) was going doing a show in kentucky and would exchange the tire for me.

in the mean time I got the new seat back from Classic enterprises and got the passenger seat finished up.


after I got the new tire I loaded it up


and took it down to bill at B&F to have the rear end rebuilt. I picked it up on saturday while he rebuilds the trans and case.





in the mean time I am going to order a new pan gasket and replace that and refinish the pivot bracket.

thanks.

there obviously have been setbacks and details I am addressing that has pushed back completion. I just got it back from my buddies shop where the rear end was rebuilt (had a pinion bearing and shim issue) and the trans and tranfercase rebuilt. I haven't uploaded pix in a while and have forgotten to take some pix of stuff.

it's the little stuff that gets ya. I was going to refinish the choke and throttle cables but after cleaning them noticed that the engraving on them was not in terrific shape so I will end up replacing those.

the tub that is on is showing it's problems and is cracking down the side now. it seems the more I work on it, the more of the tub falls to the ground and swept into the garbage. the next major item will be the tub replacement.

I had an issue with the fuel gauge so we (i and my bro-in-law) took it apart and got it working again. the dash is back apart to work on the e-brake brackets and the choke and throttle cables. after that I will start in on making some patterns for the seat cushions. and my gas can straps.

i have to say after all the hardcore builds of Jeeps and buggys that ive seen over the years, your build is very refreshing. I like your eye for detail

originally I was planning on taking it through some trails. that consensus has changed as the amount of work i have put into it tallys up. I don't know that I have the heart to take it down anything more than a mild 2 track. I am sure it will end up in the local parades. but who knows what the future holds.

some will be coming soon.
I just installed new choke and throttle controls and will be putting the e-brake control back in it. I will be pulling the oil pan soon as it needs a gasket and I will refinish that while it is out. still collecting parts for when I get the replacement tub.

well it's been a while and there has been some dead-time on the project but i'm back rolling on the 2a.

last week we ordered a new tub from willys overland and they called to let me know it is ready so yesterday it was time to extract the old tub off.

started by removing everything from the interior.




then with the help of some neighbors off came the tub.




this week I will be finishing up some spots on the top of the frame and pulling the
ross box for adjustment, reseal and paint in prep for the new tub.

we went yesterday to pick up the new tub and some additional parts.
they guys at Willys-Overland were great to deal with.

what we got was:
cj2a tub
back seat
oil pan gasket
accelerator bell crank
accelerator dust boot
fuel tank
body mount kit
tank to body grommet

we just plopped it on the frame for now







first I am going to get it all shimmed and aligned to everything then start adding the parts I need to transfer over from the old tub.

more progress pics.

finally got some tape to cut the bumper stencils to put my grandfathers unit on the bumper. I moved his unit over to the right by choice simply because the holes in the bumper were affecting the way it looked when centered. I also chose to omit the dashes between the groups.



removed and cleaning some parts to be transferred from the old to the new tub.



marked the high beam telltale hole position from the old and transferred it over to the new.



the repro tub comes with the column bracket riveted on. I drilled out the rivets in favor of using my original unit.



also removed the supplied windshield pivots and used the correct versions I already had.



test fit the windshield frame and dash latches. no issues at all.




the fenders lined up great with the repro tub and I got them bolted on for fit.
still cleaning parts to transfer but making good progress. next I am going to finish checking and measuring for any alignment issues and replace the missing passenger side outrigger and mark the rear crossmember for the mounting holes I have to drill.
