I was going to paint it , but I am by no means a body guy more of a scuff and shoot painter at best . My local shop thats painting this shot four coats of primer before they sprayed the paint ... I dont have that kind of patience . As you say the devil is in the details , I just hope the hood doesnt look dramatically better than the rest of the paint on the LJ !

Thanks , theyre not too bad to fab up . The toughest part was the notching on the front . If you were closer you could use the bender , but I am sure someone close by has one in Nashville .





The hood is painted ! Woo Hoo , just like my old 73 Renegade was . At this point my wife is calling it the retro rubicon , and I kind of like how that sounds . More to come yet , especially now that I am home for a month .

I was there last weekend for ZuWharrie . I still have a cage , rear driveshaft and steering to take care of before I wheel the LJ .

I didnt realize how tired I was last night until I looked at the pictures of my cuts ! I have traveled non stop for the last four weeks and I think it all hit me last night .



Shaky cuts and the knockout .

After a lot of die grinder work .

Rear crossmember cut so that I can french the receiver into the frame .

Receiver in place and ready to be welded up . I hope to finish up the majority of the bumper tomorrow .

I have right angle tie in brackets that go on the outside of the frame. Additionally I am adding them on the inside too.
