Liquid stripper is good for furniture but for metal jobs I will go with the sandblast. I plan to make the grid the wings and the hood using a gun like this. For the tub I would see later.

I bought sand at the store yesterday for my sandbalst. It was wet so useless.

This morning my wife and I went boating. We stopped on a beach for dinner and saw the most beautiful sand. I bring back some to my house and put it in my sandblast.

The result ... Super and free ...

The last pieces are painted.






The new seals and bearing are installed and the axles reinstalled in the differential.

Next step I have to make a support for my electric motor.



I'll wait before painting the frame. I'm going to have to make battery cases and I do not know yet where and how they will be installed.

I may have missed it, but how much does the electric motor weigh by itself?

The engine, without the transmission, weighs 220lbs.

I thought I used the original engine brackets on my jeep. bad idea.





The best thing is to make new ones.










I had made a hor-road trailer for camping and I had some pieces of metal left that I had bent. Surprisingly, they do perfectly for my electric motor.









The engine is not level. I'll have to see all this again.

Désolé. J'utilise Google traduction pour écrire en anglais et c'est pas vraiment encore au point. Ok, j'ai pas vraiment d'excuse, je devrais me relire un peu plus avant de publier.

Wow I just realized your in Quebec City. I have been watching this build and think it's very cool. I'd like to stop in and see your CJ once it's all finished.

I am from the Montreal area and I would be happy to show my electric jeep project to who want to see it
