Nothing major have been done on the body painting front.

I received loads of parts today. So it is not all bad news.

I got an Electrical Fan Conversion from Flex-a-lite.

Hopefully, this will help me in controling the engine heat.

I also received my Savvy Off-road Rear LED lights.

They look Really cool. I'm planning to install it upside down, just like that.

I'm relocating my rear license plate and 3rd brake light to the spare tire.


I also bought a cheap Smittybilt tank just for the fun.

If it worked, I'm planning to connect two compressors to air up faster and to run air tools.

The front of my Rust Bucket will receive a very nice Warn Winch.




The winch will be complimented with Viking safety thimble.

note the Viair Relay that is going to be used with the second air compressor.

The manual shifter will be replaced with this Short throw unit from B&M


Last but not least is the Hoodlift and tailgate prop

Going today to see what is the latest updates.

I hope that they started working on the body. It need lots of preparation work. If they started today then it will be finished by tomorrow and We can start the reassembly on Monday.

Wish me Luck !

The body work have already started

Good luck is what I got today !

They finally started working on the body !

I arrived with the Jeep looking like this:


The Rusted Floor was replaced.


The guys were working on plugging the unnecessary holes.




Also, they started on working on other Rusty areas like this area in front of the windshield.


Rust Bucket got lots of dents. They need to be repaired before preparing the Jeep for the paint job.


A Couple more days of this type of progress and the car will be ready for assembly!
