got 90% of that stray light tan dirt that this jeep was obviously up to the doors in, wiped, cleaned, washed out of the jeep today

pulled the seatbelts out, I'm going with the 97+ style in grey when they go back in.

one step at a time here, cant wait to have it all in so i can get it painted from the top side, and then get covered in paint, painting the bottom.

I've looked into buying all the floor pans. With shipping it's around $700. About how much did it cost for the steel to do it your way? I need to replace everything like you are doing plus the rocker panels.

way less.

if you factor in cut off discs, and all the steel i used, less than 150

if you gotta do rockers, build boat side sliders, only reason i didnt is because my rockers are nice.

Not bad at all. With the money saved I can pay for the welder. I'll have to research welders and welding. Thanks.

no problem, its more work, cutting your own plates, but its deffinatly better in the long run, because factory steel is way too thin, i can dent the wheel tubs with my hands, its pretty pathetic.

finally got to go down there and work on it a little bit more. I'm sorry this is taking so much longer than it should have. if you could work 20 hrs a week on this (very possible if you do 8 hr days on the weekend) you could probabaly finish it in a few weeks or less.

had to make a bunch of little plates, because nothing lines up, so had to plate the back and on both sides. This would be 1000% easier if chryco used steel that wasnt paper thin. plastic cups are stronger.

(pics now at bottom rehosted via jf)


more soon, nothing has sold that ive been trying to sell, so im trying to take care of bills and xmas. Havent really had a ton of time.

its getting there. i have the slope where the 2 different levels of floor meet, under the back seat, those 2 little pieces in the front, and both back corners as far as top down work.

i still have a bunch of welding from the bottom up to do. Merry xmas to me, hopefully, but i doubt it. probabaly happy newyears.
