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

It sounds like your a noob, but awesome work. Do you have a mentor or something? I'd love to get a tubing bender some day.
