What are the finishing plans? Painting the front clip or the whole body?
That is still up in the air.
I have some other projects that I want to get done before spring. Mac intends to continue running this jeep on the Rubicon with us, so a full spiffy paint job doesn't make sense to me.
Pushing hard to get this thing road worthy before Uncle Mac arrives on Christmas Eve.
ARB Compressor mounted to the fender. The grill support rod needed a lil Z bent into it, just to make life easier.
Uncle Mac wanted a set of H4 lights with halo's..... Not my thing.... but whatever.
These were a real PITA to get to fit in the CJ buckets.
With everything together I fired up the lights.
When I tested everything I used the drivers side assembly.
Well it turns out that this brand new OMIX marker light assembly on the passenger side is wired backwards...... straight out of the box.
At this point last night I walked away.....
that is frustrating!
Dude, nice CJ!
I probed the YJ wiring connection and verified that I had indeed wired the marker/turn lights correctly.
Swapped the pins inside the plug for the passenger side marker/turn signal.
Sure enough, the Omix light was wired backwards when it was manufactured.
Now things are looking much better.
Nice work Kyle! Your uncle should be happy.
With the rear square fender flare removed to expose the round fender cut in the tub...... its basically an improved CJ7!!!
Into the container it goes.
Mac is going to come back in the spring and do all of the prep work for paint. There is a spot on the drivers side where a poorly made patch panel was welded in.
Removal of the YJ rear flares left exposed holes in the tub that will need welded up.
Mac wants to put a set of black steel corner guards on the rear of the jeep. At that point we might as well just repaint the whole shebang.
Tucked in for some hibernation.
