Gotta re-do the blackpipe booty fab steering with these parts from a local guy... Found my extra gauges that will look right at home in the CJ, don't think I will use the YJ tach though, as I think the Sunpro tach is pretty neat on the column, electric fan etc...

added a triple gauge pod so I can monitor the motor, the temp sender had to be booty fabbed for now though. OP is 40 cold idle 15-20 hot idle... better then expected :rock: (spec is 33 @2300 RPM I easily have that)

I ditched the extended shackles it had for some YJ shackles.

got some more parts, early YJ guages, but doubt I will use the tach...




dash patched and ready to cut for gauges



Tailgate chains reattached


Shift knob I had laying around... either I will paint it, or I will use this WW2 grenade from my Great grandfather....



Start of the bondo on the rear... need to sand it and smooth it again...

More stuff done...





Started fixing the steering...




Started installing the fan




Then we ran out of welding wire...

I also worked some more body work on the rear 1/4, but it was drying slowly as it was chilly tonight

I like it too, the early YJ gauge is almost a perfect match, but is a great update over the stock one, with the trip meter etc... That will help a lot until I can get a fuel gauge and stuff... I may just get other gauges to match the speedo in the long run (I need electrical the mechanical don't work with the motor well, unless I can find a place to put the HUGE temp sender with the mechanical). The front radiator support my buddy finished for me, and the radiator is mounted and is very sturdy, and its a very simple mount, that uses the stock flatty radiator mounts, but keeps it independent of the grill.

The rear quarter is looking really smooth, but I think I need to get a better air sander, my electric palm sander just isn't doing what I need it too.

The steering is going to be interesting, I will get a picture to explain, but it will function very well with the winchmount I plan on putting on.

Get yourself a pneumatic straight line and a roll of sticky back paper. Use 80 grit to shape and 340 grit to smooth. Work diagonally. You'll never get it flat with a palm sander. I got my straight line from a local discount store similar to Harbor freight. I've done two restos with it now and it is still going strong. Aternatively, you could buy a cheap board sander and do it by hand. Still uses the same paper, but it is a lot harder to make the scratches disappear because it doesn't ocsillate like a pneumatic.

I have one... but because I don't have a garage I hve never wired in my 220 air compressor to run it I am going to have to bite the bullet and wire it into the basement and run a REALLY long hose... or just sand in the driveway

Radiator support just needs paint, we may gusset the corners too though


moving the rather large power saggy box level so the draglink doesn't hit the tie rod anymore.



he rear quarter, needing sanded, another layer, then sanded again.

That rear quarter is a section that I especially recommend using a pneumatic straight line. I don't think you'll ever get it even with that palm sander. Point it vertical and move it around the corner without pausing. Try to remove that bow support if possible.
