Painting done; only the tailgate remains. It was kinda rough, so he has some more work to do on it.

I know I should be sanding the interior to start the Monstaliner, but I could not wait to put the new wheels/tires on...

My son is inspecting the paint job too...

Found some cracks in the floor underneath the rear of the driver's seat bracket.

From above...


Up Close...


My plan is the drill holes at the end of each crack, and the "stitch" the cracks with a welder.

While I wait to "borrow" a welder, I finished cleaning up an old 4WD Hardware bumper/tire carrier I have. Here is the bumper portion after prime & paint...

Got the rollbars out. I had to drill three of the bolts and I stripped 4 torx bits; Sears ran out of them and is ordering more, so I can exchange the last 2.

I found this underneath the driver's side rollbar...


Need to cut and patch this now too.

I am glad I pulled the rollbars instead of just installing Monstaliner over the rollbars.

Hope to weld this up over the weekend. Really want to get this baby back on the road.

Should have a better picture of the nearly completed project tomorrow.

Everything is curing now.

95% complete!

I still need door seals and have to re-apply the 'Jeep' stickers, but my initial test drive was successful.

Today we hope to apply Monstaliner to the transmission tunnel cover.

Here are the nearly complete pictures...

Well Done! That's a nice looking pair of jeeps you've got going there.

If it wasn't done the hard way, I didn't do it.
