ok btw just thought of this....in the bath/shower dept at both home depot and lowes they have these suction cup style handicap handles designed to stick to smooth surfaces...these work great as hangles for handling glass or other large bulky smooth objects..and are cheaper than the ones they sell for glass...just something I thought id share....they work good when trying to line up large panels as well...but surface must be mostly flat and smooth and sorta shiny...doesn't work well on flat or primer...but work super good on windshields and glass or when say mounting a door that isn't quite dry nuff to handle like I do being as I suffer from adhd and if I move on before it gets done well it just might not...lol

ok a few more quick pics...some are for an overall idea of color scheme even tho paint isn't final and was wasted...

first up a close up of those nifty handles I was talking bout....



and body color along with rear door with fresh coat of doodoo brown...lol



just seeing what the dash and column look like together..


booster and mc....


ok so tomorrow im off to the dr so not sure what ill get done...but hope these pics start giving you an idea of what I have in my mind....the roof is going to either be brown or white,,,the drip lip will be semiflat/satin black the interior will be a combo of engine color and the body color...anyway..thats all for now

Great job on that steering wheel. Have you done the epoxy filler before? Any idea on how long it'll hold up? The wheel on my '63 cj5 has the same gaps. That'd be a whole lot cheaper than a new one.

no not personaly...I got the idea from hotrod tv...however I saw a steering wheel just like mine new in box on ebay buy it now for 35$..under ratrod parts/cars for sale...now I did use an epoxy stick meant for fiberglass bathtubs...I had it left over from when I repaired our whirlpool tub...the tub hasn't falied yet and its been thee for almost 2 years...

Many times when a persons arm hurt, it is because of the nerves being pinched in the cervical spine. The X-ray techs were simply doing there job.
Unfortunately, lawyers will sue docs and hospitals in this country if they don't do everything to cover their @$$. What kind of hospital was it? You mentioned govt. was it a VA?

as embarrassing as it is to say..it was the first of whats prolly many dr visits to approve or deny my disability, which if I could find a job that let me work 15min then not work for an hr or so I wouldn't need...lol...last time I spent a day forcing myself to work past the point I knew I shouldn't I wasn't able to do for almost a week....it would appear that my parents word of "Be Careful" didn't just apply to the immediate injurys I was sustaining thinking I could fly...between hitting the pavement for years, years crawiling in attics and crawlspaces, topped off with swinging that 4lb hammer forging out iron for the last few that I actually held a "mans" job..now I cant even put in 4 hrs at a pansy job like cashier or something...the only reason it looks like I actually make progress on my jeeps is im here at the house 24/7...so I work on it for 30min or so then rest half a day...lol....and to answer your final question no it was not the VA, even tho I think im still classified as a veteran, I have never checked into whether or not I am entitled to benefits...see what had happened was...me and a buddy just after basic were having a few and somehow he got into it with army(we were navy) next thing I know there are 3 of them on him and one guy picked up a chair or stool or something so I jumped in, then next thing I know im chasing one of them out the door and into the street,only to wind up taking out the grill,hood,windsheild,roof and tailgate of a Toyota pickup that was zooming down the road....3 months in a holding company and I was shipped home with $11,000 and a medical under honorable conditions...that's my service story and im sticking to it...I would like to think had I gone on to serve my country further, life would be better/different somehow but I cant really complain about how it is...overall life is pretty good...

ill see what I can dig up...the xj (the red one im assuming is the one you are asking about in particular) was litteraly built in say a week...I guess I could do a quick mini build right here on this post as it actually went that fast...

so this was my main ride for better of 3 years...


and this was my back up...


decided I wanted the backup to be nicer so we could take both out..


main ride (the xj) decided to rip itself in half one night after it spent 3 days in the woods before making it home..was a sad sad day in the bottoms...we even had a funeral/wake..where we drank beer by a huge bonfire in the woods and I burned the title...so then we moved to Mississippi..but just before that happened I had a rolling complete body of a 99 police xj (full set of skids class 5 hitch all the goodies and was manual crank windows and door locks to boot(I hate electric windows)...so I took all the stuff out of th "main ride and stuffed it under xj but sold my gears...

so this is how she was when I moved...


by then the back up had become the main and was being beat to hell by me of course even took it to a few shows...hey had too even got to ride 4 miles of trails on the way since that was the shortcut...lol hence the fresh mud..




one short year later and this is whats left of the back up....


so then I got this crazy crazy idea(more like dumbest idea ever)...and this happened...the ladder is not supporting anything ...haha


bronco chassis...


jeep body...yes it perfectly balanced..on one 15x15 bard rim and a keg...lol


after a little trimming...



and wallah...xj on tractor tires....I wanted an instant truck and that's pretty much what I got...and we all know what "instant" tastes like it tastes like a**!!...



somewhere I got pics of the final build before I decided even tho it looked great it was way way too heavy for its running gear...I should have buggied
the bronco chassis and just finished out the xj as I had it but with better planning than it predecessor...so there ya have it the story of a xj on tractor tires....

Your my hero Freak, thanks for the pics. Pulled your build up in auto shop and had the fellow jeepers laughing at your keg jack stand. Very creative, haha.
