I have a gallon of the Sand Beige sitting in my garage right now, I am only waiting to finish sanding up everything and then I get to repaint, since I have the Sahara I have the right interior, I replaced the fogs that PO ripped off after his unreported accident, I have the License Plate, and my light bar is in the process off getting fabricated right now. I want to say I have only about $500 on JP stuff.

That's great man. I like the gray better lol. Even if it is wrong. I thought about a light bar, but i want a roof rack so I may as well use that to mount the lights. Who cares if it's not movie accurate, right? Lol.

It depends on what you plan to do, if you go for a non-canon number though, you have a little leeway, like how I will be having a hard-top on during winter and summer (because AZ has such nice weather those months) so I am going with non-canon 42. As for my light bar, I enjoy just the bare look so I will not be mounting any lights on it.

Yeah, I was plannimg on going with a non movie number. In the end, I hope it to be something that would fit into the movie, but not like the stock gassers they relied on to traverse an island.

I have another column but getting to the switch is a PIA.
Above mentioned doomahicky arrived in the mail today. Quick three minute install and the wipers are back to normal.
I loves me an easy fix.
I'muna drive my Jeep topless/doorless this weekend!!

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

haven't done much with her lately, spotted a booboo on the tranny, it's not mounting properly, bout a 1/4" gap on top of the gasket flange, explained how a caliche rock got in there. Got it tightened up now.

On a side note, almost done with the skeleton of this beauty

Very cool so far. How are you finishing it off? You must be covering it in something thick to cover all those pen marks!

Thinking of a vinyl wrap actually, and a waterproofing seal for the whole setup. The finishing touches after that will come to me as it comes along.

One thing I am thinking about now is the mounting frame on the bottom, I have some slotted angle I can make use of for that, gonna have to get dip measurements from the shifter cowl down the spine of the tub.

Keep posting pictures as things progress. I really want to see how it turns out. Should be pretty cool!
