No, I've not fallen off the face of the earth, I've been busy with Deer Season, Thanks Giving, Family and a few other things going on and have not had much time to work on the Jeep lately. I did get in a little work on the tub though. Finished the passenger side lower door support repair, and worked on the fuel pump access panel some more. Looks like my original plan of driving by Christmas is out the window, oh well, all is good though.

Back to doing a little work on the Jeep. I made a reinforcement to install inside the rear tub body cross member to mount the CJ tail gate to. I was able to slide it in and through the rust hole on the passengers side before doing it's repair. I also reinforced/repaired the right rear tub mount and started closing off the rust hole.

Started the exterior rear corner repair. Finally used my body panel clamps to hold the patch panels in place while I spot welded them in. They work pretty good, but my thin sheet metal welding skills aren't the best. I will need to finish welding them from the back/bottom side, but before I flip the tub, I spot welded in the final fuel pump cover side flanges. After a little more welding and some body filler the tub exterior is getting closer to sanding and painting.

Thanks Tom.

I finished attaching and welding the Fuel Pump Access Cover. Also welded the bottom side of the rear tub mount reinforcements I made.

Well, let me tell you, cleaning out the old carpet glue was no easy task. The glue is almost all gone now, and I've de-greased the inside of the tub and the engine side of the firewall as well. I've done the same trim/opening of the rear wheel wheels that I did to my brothers Jeep. This will allow easily up to 35" tires with out further trimming, so my current 31" might look a little out of place. I also fabricated the tailgate latch brackets from some 1/2" tubing and adding a weld to snap the latches against. The only metal work left on the tub is to fabricate/attach the tailgate straps. then I can prime, and fill the body spots in preparation for paint.

This afternoon a little more cleaning, and then some bare metal priming. I also removed the glass out of the replacement windshield frame and getting it ready.

Spent a little time fabricating the tailgate cable brackets and attaching them. Need to finish welding them on and cleaning the welds and priming, but the work as planned. I also finished the body filler and first tub sanding. Next is to apply the fill primer and finish the sanding in preparation for paint.

Well, the Tub is sanded and almost read for paint. A couple of spots that needed a little more filling to be sanded and I still need to sand the firewall. Then the bottom can be re-undercoated and the tub can be painted.

The Tub is done and loaded for the trip to the Paint Booth when it's available. I've also got the Hood, Windshield and Tailgate sanded and ready for paint as well. Next comes the grill shell.

Thanks Bill, I'm going Sahara Tan (2011-12 Jeep Wrangler Color). Figured it might look better in the long run in Tan than my original plan of Hemi Orange.
