Other than the rear seat belt (which are on order) and a yet to be thought up trim piece under the dash pad...The interior is complete!

Had an interesting day today..... my goal was to finish the under hood steering column wiring. I got everything separated and identified...or at least 90% of it.

I realized I would need to start and put the Jeep in gear to accomplish some of this, but I had no brake pedal. Taking over a year off from a build identifies sshhiitt that you remember, and sshhiitt you forgot....

sshhiitt is actually in the Kings English bible, so bear with me...

Somewhere back in time I drained all the brake fluid, my wife was kind enough to help me bleed the brakes again, got that done but had no steering, found the steering bar laying on the springs, the steering bar had disconnected from the knuckle on the drivers side.. the castle nut was still sitting on top of the knuckle. I never put pins in them, but this build has less than a half mile on it.

I fixed all that and was about to take her for a drive up and down the street when my father in-law came by. He told me there was a couple of lug nuts loose, further investigation showed 7 were loose around the jeep and 3 were missing...looks like some (round brown holes) tried to take my wheels and tires...

I spent the rest of the day buying, blasting and powder coating locking lug nuts. Not much of a picture considering what I went thru...



Tomorrow will be a better day...

It looks and sounds great! I finally dove into my wiring harness - hope you're ready for a few questions as they come up.

Not an issue, I would say I would be better with wiring issues than anything else, given my background..but it's what I hate the most, go figure...

Nothing done this weekend...bummer. We thought someone was coming over to buy the play fort in the backyard..they never showed, wasted half a day, cleaned the shop the rest of the day.

The only thing I got done today was to install the rear seat belts, I tried to record the neighbor starting the Jeep up with a few revs..but I paused when I thought I was recording, i did get a few seconds of her face grinning while starting it thou...

Latest pic...
