I got most of what I wanted to get done this weekend. I hate bondo so I didn't end up filling any dents. I did however get A LOT done this weekend. The Jeep is now drivable again, in FWD.
The fenders and grill have all been jam painted. and installed. I got everything in the engine bay installed, the ABS pump was fun. I also got the 8 screw holes in the CJ tailgate welded up and sanded down.
Crappy cell phone pics, the paint looks 1000 times better than these pics show.
Fenders and grill jammed:
The stock radiator bolts right up to the Tj grill in both the 4cyl and 6.
Engine bay put back together:
So on Friday night this is what the front end looked like:
By Sunday afternoon:
Also got the interior completely stripped, had to get the wife to help me remove the roll bars. (thanks honey):
I love the way the Genright fenders look:
My birthday is coming up and my mother and grandfather are going to pay to have the windshield replaced (it's cracked)
. This week I would like to get this thing out of garage and REALLY wash her down inside and out. Maybe get some dents filled (I HATE bondo
). The wifey and kids are going to Florida mid June for a few days so that is when I would like to do the painting. Before then I need to get the Line-x done and the dents filled. After that all that is left in the suspension swap and that should be it. So the target date for completion is end of June.
