    FWIW, the original style grab bar mounted in the original location does not interfere with the windshield latch...

    Thanks Tim. That's good information. I'm not sure I don't like the bar further to the side anyway. With the lift I have it will make it a good grab for climbing in. And how often do most folks fold down the windshield? A few times a year I'd think at the most.

    Here's mine with wires.

    Do yourself a favor and use flex loom. You can get it really cheap at Harbor Freight.

    The welting went on pretty easily. Mini torch and hot poker!

    Next I deleted the radio delete and added this switch panel.

    How much paint did it take to paint the entire Jeep?

    She’s outside hooked up to the truck. I’ve done everything myself but the wire harness I’m giving to a professional.

    Looking great. I'm still working my way through wiring mine. It's not a hard job, but it's my first time doing a vehicle from scratch and it does take a great deal of time to do it neatly. I'll bet you can't wait to get it back and fire it up.
