I finally made some progress on the jeep today.
I started by cutting two 6" pieces of 1.5 tube for the sleeves in my A pillar
then i drilled 1/2" hole in the a pillar
then i slid the sleeve into my A pillar
and bent up my new A pillar
drilled a hole in the floor to drop the new A pillar down to slid it over the sleeve
i mocked everything up and had a clearance issue but it was easily solved
before i welded the A pillar in i decided i should figure out where i was gonna tie my engine cage into my A pillar and drilled a hole where it should go through
