    Thanks! Out of Louisville, Ky. You can tell a good prime coat even from pictures. Thanks for the tip. I need something that really sticks and that will do it.

    Got the windsheild frame taken apart today. All of the hinge bolts came out ok. A couple of the were rusty. Just soaked the with PB Blaster.
    I am going to paint the frame the same yellow as the body.

    The old steering had just a one peice shaft and some times it would bind,
    So I took and put in a third ujoint and a heim joint stand off and that took care of the binding.

    Got the front sheet metal on today but it is to dark to take pictures. Will get them in the morning.

    The master/booster fits a Jeepster.
    I got it from Don Fletcher @ Partsdude4X4.net
    Used the pedel assy out of a 72 Jeepster but had to make a new connecting link because the CJ firewall angles out at the bottom and the Jeepster does not.
    The fit in the engine bay was close with a V8. I still have to swap the valve covers so I can get to the oil fill cap.

    Here are the pictures of the front sheet metal hung.

    This is the first body work I have done.
    I have been in a lot of bodyshop as I service air compressors.

    Getting closser. Got the wiring wraped with cold shrink tape on friday.
    Sat morning got the windsheild frame and rollbar sand blasted. About 1/2 way through a fitting on the blaster got a hole in it and I did not have a replacement. So off to the hardware store to get a replacement.
    Did not do any painting on sat because it got up to 100
    Sunday morning 6:00 am got the epoxy primer sprayed and then a couple hours later got the sandable primer sprayed.
    3:00 pm sprayed the paint. Here are a coulpe pictures.
