Thanks. Nothing like cutting up brand new aluminum fender.

Got both fenders mounted up and both sides of the hood cut. Now I just have to take the hood off, weld the edge back on and figure out how to mount the hood latches.

With the dents in the hood and the lack of bottom lip, the hood has lost some of its shape. The gap next to the cowl looks good, too much in the center and not enough near the grill. Not sure how to brace it while I weld the lip back on. Good thing this hood was far from perfect to begin with.

Nice, now would be a good time to go with the tj style hood latches.

Not a huge fan of TJ latches. It think its b/c of the plastic. I've seen some aftermarket ones that use rod ends but that seems a little overdone for a hood latch. I'll see if I can make my stock ones work.

This pic was taken before the patch was welded into the rocker but I like how it shows the lines of the cage. I love the fast back look. Wish I didn't have to put in that rear section but the kids come first.

Also, you can see from this pic that the remote resiv for the front shocks is mounted on the front shock hoop on the outside of the rad. It seems like everyone mounts them to the cross tube between the hoops. This places them in the hottest part of the the engine compartment. Up top above the engine and rad. Part of the function of the remote res is for cooling. That's why I chose to put it out front where it can have access to cooler air.

Dude, I thought this was a real time build. I was about to say you work really fast.

Just seen your Jeep on Crawls FB page.

Yeah, it's done. Thought it would be more fun to do it this way and get more feedback. Thanks for the comment on their page. I'd love to get it in their mag. Sure you would too.

I guess I should have read a little closer, when I went back and read a few of your posts I could see the past tense. Anyway, love the look. Maybe they will feature yours and mine in the same month.

When I come up there in a few weeks, we should take some poser shots. What did you think o the color. My wife was set on midnight blue, and the day before I took it to the painter we saw it. A 2012 Grand Cherokee in Winter Chill and we loved it. Thought it was a little retro for the CJ with a new twist.
