    1- interesting to see that tires are... on wheels
    2 - good to see that when useful you pay a pro to have a good job done.
    3 - your Jeep will be accepted in a museum, piece of Art.
    4 - we wait...

    Well here goes...been a bit since I updated this thread, but I have made progress. Im bad at keeping track of stuff so bear with me...

    I needed some inspiration so I pinned all the tin on to sit and look at what the future holds... the steel rod extruding from drivers side windshield was part of an on going fix to the soft top channel...the rag hanging off is not a sign of surrender...just there for safety!:rofl:
    Many small tid bits have been installed...wind shield, horn button, gas tank, oil pressure gauge, etc. etc.

    with my bad leg its really tough to climb in...so I bought steps...with a little tweaking I'm pretty satisfied...very sturdy this way.

    some CAD work...

    I bought after market fork lift seats...:crazy:...the wheel house notch was cut to allow the rear left mount to bolt directly to the tub...

    Im pretty satisfied with the seats...and have plenty of room for my pudgy 6'2" self to slide in...
    Fuel pump, PCV, wiper motor, and other stuff...

    Pretty sure it was Walt who said "unbolt all dash bolts but the lowest on each side"...I got some longer ones for the lower corners and...WOW...how awesome is that!
    thumbnail_20190610_133700.jpg
    Thanks Walt!
    Anyhoo...my goal is to fire it up and run it by end of summer...after that...who knows, the paint and body work may never come about...but if im driving her who cares!

    Here's a pic of the speedo and oil pressure gauge from the cockpit...I removed the bezels and powder coated...the plan is to keep the dash as simple as this
    thumbnail_20190518_144029[1].jpg
    I've been working on things with the idea that if I do at least one thing every day...no matter how small...eventually ill get there
    Yeah...I know...then it will be time to start over :(
    Any way, here's todays progress...and I got two things accomplished:beer:
    parking brake is installed
    thumbnail_20190623_115057[1].jpg
    wasn't sure where the spring was supposed to go so I just hooked it to some hat channel
    thumbnail_20190623_115019[1].jpg
    AND....the speedo cable is in...I did not hook that to hat channel...
    thumbnail_20190623_144717[1].jpg
    thumbnail_20190623_144738[1].jpg
    Since this is a repop tub I had no idea where to drill the hole...I was really worried the cable wouldn't reach the speedo head...not so worried any more:hellokitty:
