I think im going to gather all my supplies this week then bang it out on the weekend IF its warm enough. frickin new york i tell ya what
OH, yeah... I wasn't saying it was THAT cold. It's just not the 70-80 degree weather I was expecting and that we've been having. I actually spent the last 3 days in the garage. I'm selling **** and cleaning out the garage. Parts XJ is leaving today along with the D44/9" axles. Weight bench went the other day and set of Jeep wheels went yesterday. Just making room, so all this crap isn't sitting around for the next year while I'm in Afghanistan.

This is after a few hit with a hammer.

EDIT: The floor was essentially herculiner with no metal under it

the hole in the floor will be helpful that it doesn't fill with water when the top gets cut

It will NOT leak, so dont speak such nonsense. I'm on edge about doing this as it is. Again, this is my DD.
