Worked on the jeep alittle. I need to get some photos up here. But I had a rear spindle leak, so I went ahead and replaced the seal. I pushed the seal a little farther in this time to i know its not riding on the same journal on the spindle.

I also calibrated the speedo, so i know how fast I am going.

I did get my boat sides all bent up. Just need to make time to mount them now.

And I scared the **** out of my mom when I took her for a test ride

I said I would get some photo's posted so here I go.

Dented the tub.



Pounded it out.


Bent up my boat sides to cover my F@ck up.


Replaced a leaky spindle bearing on the rear.


Cleaned off the soot from my corners from rolling coal around town


Drove it to 60 miles to school.


Parked it next to my friends new JK. I win


Couple of notes, on the way to school I was able to hit 88mph, but I didnt travel back in time

I do not have the fuel screw turned up like a 16 year old in high school rolling coal down the entire block. It only rolls coal when I really get on it.

I am able to max out my 35ft-lb boost gauge. So I need to watch my foot Offroad I was only able to get up to 30ish.

My 0-60 time is around 9-10 seconds. I need a passenger to time me tho

O and I am able to cruise down the road doing 70mph with one hand on the wheel and the other out the window.

Jeffro will be painting him in the parking lot at moab
I am surprised on how it handles. I put 400 miles on it already and I am averaging 19mpg so far.

Trying to get ready for Moab,

Here is the list to be done by sunday night.



Jeffro this one is for you!!!!
I got the boat sides started. I still need nutsets in a few areas, and then I need to add two bolts that hold it in from the bottom. After moab I plan to weld a plat up front to help give it more support at the front fender.

Man I love this jeep. On a side note you've inspired me to get a whiteboard in the garage.

Tell me about it. Spend 19hrs out there today and only crossed off like 5 things. Boat sides and cowl should be the hardest items. So I hope its down hill here on out.

Thanks. I love my jeep too. LOL JK
The whiteboard is a must for a build like this. I have a bunch of notes all over it.



So after I messed with the boat sides. I moved on to the cowl skins.
From start to finish I have about 5 hrs invested in make a pair.
First stated with a paper template.


Then I felt like I was in art class shading (finding the out line so I can jut that out.)


Took the template and drew it up in cad


Then I went to the table and cut it out.



Then I clamped them on for now. Tomorrow I will drill out all the holes.



I got the tire carrier brackets painted and installed. I did cut out the licenses plate bracket and light mount. I am going to weld that on tomorrow and paint the tire carrier.
