That is fine work on the jeep excellent!
What's different about the grill? It looks taller maybe? Can't wait to see it without the real wheels and ditch the rollers.
The shroud is shorter
Love restoring these original parts to look new again
Battery tray day
Need to get a battery that fits in it tho
A bit of plasti dip on the winch handle
Think I need to slooooooow down a bit and focus
That might be OK if you could do the whole Jeep like that.
Tomorrow's ambition is to run the fuel lines, install fuel tank and gas pedal and maybe take her for a spin around the yard
All in one day? That is ambitious. Looking forward to that.
Got the tank in and full of gas
How you center the filler neck of an aftermarket tank
Still need to secure the feed line
Gas pedal was a bust today maybe tomorrow
First time she drove more than 10 ft in 40 yrs I need to adjust the steering on it, the wheels hit the stop on one side but not the other and the brake pedal hangs up on the transmission cover. Need to make the hole bigger. Good thing the garage door was open
Awesome, just awesome!
No better feeling than that first move under it's own power.
Looking good. Hope to be doing the same in a bit. That's a great color.
Next up: Seats!
Very nice work and progress John. Making me look bad on my build progress, but I am okay with that...good inspiration. A buddy and I test drove a VW bug build when I was in high school using 5 gal buckets in place of the seats. Worked fine until I took a corner a little too fast; bucket tried to tip over and I almost went in the ditch. Panic followed by laughter, good times...
