im on the XJ side of the house and must say this is one of the most unique builds on any vehicle ive ever seen. nothing like mating two American icons in some odd science fiction fashion. good job and cant wait to see a finished product and maybe some video too.!!

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/8...thread-698685/

Got the VSS in today from Novak, waiting on them to send the instructions, don't want to drill a hole in the tranny not knowing what the hell i'm doing..



Might get to install it over the weekend, scheduled some vacation next week hopfully to get some work done on the build.

Got the instructions from Novak, taking it to a buddy to install, not comfortable drilling a hole in the tranny myself.

Restored the rear wiring harness and power washed the underside of the tub.

I hope so, so far the "extra" bolt issue has not been seen, how would like some good Texas BBQ and better cold Texas beer?

Nobody get excited, this is just a test hood.............

I can set the depth or rise anyway I like, It would be a functional shaker

I doubt your Jeep needs anything more to make it stand out, but I can dig the scoop as long as it is providing some function. Helping the engine breathe and cooling underhood temps are good things. Now move that thing away from the vette before you scratch it!

Itd be kinda sweet to have like a Flat black decal or paint around the shaker. Kinda like the muscle cars.

I have thought about painting the raised secton of the hood flat black kind of a tribute to the Mopar Muscle Cars. Maybe you should run a Air Grabber or a 440 six pac scoop.

I actually preferred the hemi cuda shaker, but even the aftermarket clones were well over $150 bucks with no guts, got the T/A one on ebay for 30 bucks. A corvette scoop is what I would have liked to had to keep with the theme, but nothing looked close to my liking.

The rolling frame is over at a buddy’s shop getting the tranny mount fabricated and the rear axle angled up, still can’t weld… He is also installing the speed sensor, don’t have the balls to drill a hole in the tranny myself, I would rather pay than play on this one ……

I'm late to this build, I'm getting ready to por 15 my frame and was wondering when you prepped your frame after sandblasting did you marine clean, rinse with water, metal ready rinse with water, dry then spray or brush on por 15? I'm just nervous about putting water on a bare metal frame. Your frame looks great that's why I'm asking you. Also what primer and topcoat did you use?

I prepped with metal ready then rinsed with water, since I had sand blasted 100% to bare metal, I got sand in the frame. I blew most out with air before metal ready, but the metal ready left a film I didn't like. So I rinsed for 30 minutes with water and wiped dry. It did leave a light surface rust, but don't worry, It's actually better for the Por-15 to adhere to. You can see the rust on the bare frame below.



I brushed it on and it left ZERO brush marks, it fills nicely...After a light sanding I primed 3 coats with a 2 part epoxy primer from Sherwin Williams automotive outlet, don't remember the make. After another light sanding I top coated with Eastwood's extreme chassis black, 2 coats. I think I could hang the frame at the coast for a dozen years before it rusts...
