Got some of the engine work done, new distributor, water pump and other small items, cleaned up everything else.... If I'm lucky, most of the drivetrain will be in by the end of next week.

Hey just curios. Are those the chrome wheels you started with and just powder coated them? Was curios because they look awesome.

Its looking great! I was thinking about doing this to my jeep soon. I'm going to get a job and start saving for a complete restoration, any idea on how much money I should save before I attempt to rebuild? My jeep is in pretty good shape, no major rust or anything. This thread will be a major help, thanks for posting!
