    The harness was easy peasy. I would definitely buy again. I even upgraded the headlight circuit to include two relays. Focker has a great thread for this upgrade. Thanks Brad for the awesome tutorial on the relays.

    Only thing I wish was different was the headlight switch. The parking lamps are only on in the first position, so when the headlights come on in the second position the parking lights shut off.

    Power your parking lights off of the tail light terminal of the switch. That way, the parking lights will be powered in either switch position.

    The parking lights from the factory went off when the switch was pulled out to turn on the head lights.

    Stripped the tub of the dash, pedal assys (gas, brake/clutch), steering column, master cylinder, windshield hinges, E brake assy. Now it all has to be cleaned up for powder coating :-( About 1/2 the hinge bolts snapped but McMaster Carr has some nice stainless steel ones. Have a new tub coming from C&C Equipment next week :) , even with the stories out there, new sheet metal is a plus. My jeep didn't come with fenders so I also have two new Crown fenders for it (they don't look bad, have to see how fit goes). Hood, Windshield frame, and Grill are surprisingly good

    I found the unobtainium headlight adjuster nuts at the picnic today. Installed all that junk.

    The speedo in the 73 took a crap on me recently on my way to work, so when I got home I just unhooked it. I hate working under a jeep dash. Out with the old.

    And in with the new. Had several parts, so I repaired this one. The needle shaft broke actually

    Picked up the new tub...was surprised that it had lower windshield mounts, JEEP stamped in the sides, and the dash holes punched out. It will be a while before I get to it for fit/finish, have to tackle the frame first :-/

    I ordered this steering column today for my 74 , Nostalgia Steel Steering Column . I wanted to stay close to original looking in the interior and this has bearings on each end not plastic bushings. I will cut the dash mount off the old rusty column and enlarge the hole to 1 3/4" and weld it on the new one, and also weld up the quick disconnect (not legal here). Add DD to spline adapter and done. (or change shaft to DD also) I'll put a horn button in the dash. This is the turn signal I plan on using Big Rig Chrome Shop - Semi Truck Chrome Shop, Truck Lighting and Chrome Accessories

    Thanks! I look at these pictures and I really like the look of it without the roll bar; it gives it that original look but I guess I should lean more toward the side of safety over cool and keep running it (y)

    The factory 2A ebrake cable is too short with a T18 under the floor, it also has obstruction issues. I made a bracket to hold the cable to the crossmember. Then fabbed a pivot arm assembly.

    Somebody needs to figure out a way to make these work in a Jeep. They’re pop-up roll bars from a Porsche convertible. The system senses a rollover and pops up from behind the seat.

    That would be clever! Pop up roll bar! :clap:I believe the Lamborghini convertibles have them as well, probably all the high end convertibles have them. They have their own SRS module to detect a rollover and pop up as quick as an airbag deploys. If anyone can figure out how to make this work it’s you, ITLKSEZ :beer:
