Ok so since the plasma is down not much happened really....i did get the new metal for dash and get it mostly drilled out...my 2" hole saw had apparently died last time i used it(must have been the.beer) so i didnt get holes for my guages cut yet...or for that matter speaker holes either...they will have to wait till plasma comes back from its trip to cali....ill post pics of dash and interior mock ups tomorrow along with brake booster and pedals...nite

Dude thats pretty awesome...i was kinda thinkin more along the lines of a laser cut decal with the service dates the dj's used to kinda comemerate it...it would seem the dj's are kinda neglected and passed over due.to thier 2wd heritage...lol...all the army service jeeps get recognised so why not the dj...lol..course that would prolly mean i should paint it back like a mail jeep but i hate white as a color on cars...lol
