And painted, its starting to look nice IMO
East wood rust flat black encapsulater , safe as a top coat.

2-3 qts is all that was needed. I ordered 4 and I have one that is unopened and 1 that is 80% full.

I'll use some to touch up on my future welds

Pulled the intake and stripped what I don't need, or what needs new gaskets. Hopefully by the end of the weekend she will be bolted up clean and painted.

So anybody know why all my pics don't work any more? Are they forever gone or will this forum get it fixed so that my build thread will be able to continue?

Got some newer parts today. Tilt Cj Column and a Yj tub in better shape than the old one, new gas tank and gas parts.

Made some minor progress today. Pulled the trany/case and set the body on it it was nice to see the wheel offset and axle combo wasn't too wide for my liking. And I was mocking up the cuts around the rear wheel well, and looking at the gas tank lift.
It will be painted yellow.

So the brand new smitybuilt corner guards powder coating striped easily in about an hour. The 6 year old poison spider rock sliders took about 6 hours to strip.

I'm not saying poison spider had better powder coating I'm just saying the chemical I used destroyed the smitybuilt coating way faster than the PSpiders.

Also smitybuilt is metric steel and poison is standard. So smitty is slightly thicker than 3/16 it may cause issues if your working with it.

Mocked up the corner guards, drilled all the holes. The smitybuilt corners fit pretty good as far as radius goes, but as far as gas tank and accessories like the tire stop and hinges, I have no idea because I'm using a YJ tub and CJ corner guards.

We traced the cut tub onto the corner guards so we can make some cuts, and unbolted the corner guards.
