    I’m adding a post to try to get this thread to kick over to a new page. My horrible internet won’t load all the images before timing out. :banghead:

    Not much but a whole lot of sanding, the welder is still in the shop, trying to find all the odds and ends. having a hard time locating my windshield hinge bolts.

    wet sanding and cleaning all the old grime. I believe the original color is Picket Gray

    I already have the tailgate ready, next up is the grill and the windshield frame. The windshield frame is going to take some work. I want to at least primer it all at the same time.

    Its been some time since I have had the time to work on this. Works been keeping me busy been home a total of 4 weeks since March. Its still going on, currently have the body back on the jeep. Getting ready to run the wires and making sure everything will bolt up. as with builds like this some clearance is needed...

    [​IMG]

    Decided to recess the tail lights and reverse lights

    [​IMG]
    After I got done all the body/welding I think I am going to need, I brought the tub back to the front garage and placed it on the jeep to see what will have to be clearnced.

    [​IMG]
    First thing, the OD unit to PTO adapter. Will have to fab something once the body comes off again for paint

    Clutch pedal to hat channel

    engine intake to drivers side fender

    Its getting to be a tight fit. Realistcly I should of probably gone with a simpler 4cyl and a stand alone fuel injection unit. something something 20 20

    The drivers side fender Hat channel does not line up very well to the mounting holes. The passenger side was a no issue.
    I am scheduled to go to S. Korea tomorrow for work so will have to look into this when I return

    Forgot to add some things

    [​IMG]

    Battery tray needed some clearance as well, battery will have to be moved around a bit to make it work

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also needed to raise it a little bit. also wanted to make it a bolt on part as room is getting scarce.

    A lot of light sanding but the original color is coming back
