    What's different about the grill? It looks taller maybe? Can't wait to see it without the real wheels and ditch the rollers.

    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:beer:

    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

    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...
