Yep, lets just say that we both got a good deal. I sand blasted a rear gold wing wheel for use of the machine. Here is he wheel in the oven baking the powder coat on while we talked about axle welding coming up.

Thanks. I think they are pretty sooooweet too.

Went on a parts/ tool run this morning for everything I think I will need to finish, took 1.5 hours. And after going to 3 parts houses for a new inner axle seal for the d30, 2 told me there was no such part, 1 said they could get it in about 3 weeks, I went to a place that I rarely go to.... And they had one in stock for 4x times the cost the others had it for. Sucked, but I got the seal and now will need to figure out how to remove the pumpkin chunk out to install.

I did install the rear cover this morning and test out my new 90* air rotory tool - awesome. I cleaned up the driver side C to get ready for welding. Here is a shot of one of the many fitment test.



I am now in a holding pattern for one if not all of the following... Welder, ball joints, and u joints. I could work on the doors, but really need a welder for the next step on that too. Ball joints should arrive tues or wed and I hope to have the welding and painting done by then.

Thanks. Got the welder in the shop and practiced for a few minutes at lunch but it really starts tonight. I have a bunch of scrap to practice on and have been watching videos for days, but nothing teaches better than experience.

Ball joints are out for delivery today and the steering boot should arrive tomorrow.

The one I am using is a Lincoln pro 135 mig which is what all the people i know have 180 or 140 or 135. The guy I borrowed it from (who's shop I am in) has a Miller that is larger than an ice box as well but using that would be a little over my head.

Got about 90% welded up on the driver side after practicing on similar metal for a couple hours before I ran out of light and needed beer (tonight I will have a few spotlights). There will be a lot of grinding and more welding soon.

Made a little bit of progress over the last few days and am just about ready to move to the next step of pulling the gears and swapping the seals and painting the exterior of the axle. Also, started modifying the passenger door frame to fit as well.


More importantly the reason I could sleep last night, I have another Jeep project in the works..... And it is going to be a little DIFFERENT than any build I have seen on here. Starting with a TUB and GRILL..... Might be called something like: The Retired Crawler Cruiser or LCOG CJ5.5...... O and the tub is a CJ-5 stretched to a CJ-6 wheelbase, then beat and wheeled hard. A friend and I pulled the grill from a scrapyard before I owned my first heep so..... This has been on my mind for a while with no clear direction til earlier this year. I will not be able to start this next project until I get the LJ to a good point of wheeling with out breaking stuff every outing but you will see a build on it soon.

You must have too much time on your hands if you can have two Jeeps on the go.

Looks like its coming along nicely, how did the welding work out for you? Once you start welding you will find all kinds of projects to build or help friends out who do not know how to weld

That is the truth. I would probably own more jeeps if I had a garage but I have been getting by.

It is pretty good. I need to grind on it a little but I am basically done with the C gussets now and will hopefully be reassembling after the seal replacement and painting this weekend.



The old 5 grill I have had for years..



And the tub being used.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=SeCzZimMg2g

He just bought a super nice buggy type chassis and had broke a d60 knuckle on this outing (last weekend or so). I am getting a set of knuckles off a guy on pirate and trading strait up for the tub. The frame is shot and the front end is completely broke since he jumped it but I might take that too just to keep the tub strait while it is waiting for reconstruction.



And it is orange and black... Imagine that.
