got some more done today,



and because I seem to like making my life difficult just to add a little "flare" (pun intended) when i build stuff you can see i made the flare taper up from 2" up to 3", not a big diff but you can see in the pic its just one of those suttle things that added like 2 hrs to my fab time.

and my new tail lights came in today... BLING!

Your jeep looks amazing by the way, great work. I'm assuming you're going to be doing a drop-down style tailgate?

Looks great!
I'm jealous you live in MO. I have friends outside of Cole Camp, I love it there. It's real peaceful and relaxing, definitely more so then here in NY haha.
You must have some awesome trails out there.

thanks every one, yes I am doing a drop down tail gate, its off an 84 CJ7. Just waiting on paint and the latches im going to try to use ao i can start putting it together.

Ya know ive worked there for 3 years and i dont think ive ever noticed that sign lol...

I have the same 1/4-20 stainless flat head cap screws that are used on my rockers to mount the corners.

I def like living in the midwest... ive been to both coasts and even lived in the virgin islands... I get tired of seasons pretty quick s actually have 4 of them is nice lol. weve got a couple good parts... the terrain varies so much in MO that you can do mud, big rocks and trails with a combination of both all in the same park.

Getting closer...


so the big issue weve been dealing with is making the inner fender, the high bend instead of goin straight back makes thing interesting
we decided the best thing to do was use as much of the original inner as possible

next, we bolted them both up and connected the old inner and the outer skin.

then, its off to the plasma and losts of grinding and tacking later...




and a fun little shot from standing on the roll cage... hood still isnt cut, and Siddy was not very happy about me being up so high lol...

here ya go guys...
so my land lord was hangin out in the garage with me so i thought id let him contribute a little... oops... aparently following a line with a sawsall is a harder task then i thought... and so is griding the paint of around the edges... he broke one blade and destroyed the backing plate for my grinder discs... so the hole in the corner is the only thing i couldnt salvage with his hack job so i need to patch it but other than that the are ready to prep for paint.



got the hood cut for the passenger side today!
I need to trim a little in this pic so the hoods sits a little closer now.


about the same coverage as a stock flare...

and here was when i was marking it out... can you say pain in the butt...
