Looks really good, cant wait to see it finished. You should for the fun of it start a build thread on the Camaro? I think thats what it is.

Got a few things done this weekend. Took 5 steps closer to being done. welded up the track arm in the back "cracked" Installed the fuel & brake lines.

Then took 3 steps back. Tranny has been leaking from the seal where the shifter attaches. I can't fix it so now it is going to the shop.


More to come......

Time for an update. Tub is back on. Removed all the computer s*%t out of it. Smog is gone also. Got it started last weekend and had some trouble with cooling but worked it out. I welded in the F250 shock towers today.







My wife standing next to the YJ. She is 5'1" tall.

We have had such bad weather here my driveway has washed out 3 times now. So I use them to hold back the stone and such. We are getting another storm tonight and most of tomorrow.
