    Can we get a first drive video? It’s gotta be like a test drive at the dealership, 1967.

    Am I a lunatic by wanting to see you get it dirty? Even just a bit? :clown:

    First run went great. Steering is a bit loose, I'll try adjusting the tight steer, not used to drum brakes but she ran like a new jeep

    Must be super quiet with stock style 2 into 1 exhaust and muffler, no?

    I couldn’t hear the classic odd-fire rumble... :( still fabulous work though.

    I say do it...but you do have a point. You might need extra super special permission from the mods.

    I read through your restoration. Fantastic Job. You have done excellent work and the final completed Jeep came out awesome.

    This gives me inspriation to get back on mine. I just need more free time, hopefully in the Spring and Summer. Thanks for posting this and your
    documenting this is great and your attention to detail is exceptional. I will be referring back to this as I progress on my projects.

    Seeing I need to take more pics. Loooking forward to the truck project.
