Hi

today was bad weather in Germany, I used the time.


I was not really happy with the tension of the brake lines




I changed it




Cooling and heating is back






I love that face

You've done a tremendous amount of work on that jeep. It looks good so far. I love that orange paint.

Fantastic job!! I have a YJ, and I swapped a CJ nose and tailgate on mine too.
What is the name of that orange paint you used? Looks great!

Hi out there

thanks for your kind words and all the attention

@Copperhead:

The orange paint is a one component paint for utility vehicles, tractors etc.

Here's the german link, where I bought it:
http://www.korrosionsschutz-depot.de...arb--1-kg.html

The color is RAL 2004 "pure orange".
see https://www.ral-farben.de/uebersicht...rben.html?&L=1

Had a look at your threat: great Job Wish I had your motor
In Germany these mods are more than difficult, because of our technical inspection (if you want to get the Jeeo licensed)

Cheers

Great build! I just read the entire thing start to current. I have been working on my YJ for 1.5 years with a long way to go and it really helps me to see others stay with the project for so long.

Awesome job on your build so far!! My YJ has been in pieces for about 3 years now and I had lost intrest for a while. Tried to sell it as parts but after a week of people faking on coming to look at stuff I decided to go ahead and keep it. Reading through your build has hopefully motivated me to comtinue on.

Hi out there

thanks for the comments and following my thread.

I really hope I can give you all some motivation not to give up your projects. I'm working now almost 3 1/2 years on that Jeep .
Surely there were some motivation gaps but I want this damned thing getting done


The motor gets more and more completed




...and I like these before/after views






Started to complete the interior. Wish I had a CJ dashboard, but this might be the next project






Cheers from germany

What an amazing build!

I'm a big fan of the square headlights, personally, but I can't argue with that beautiful rig you've built!

Hi Folks

thanks for your friendly comments


The windshield has been installed in the frame by a professional shop.

Now it's back into place.




Starting to look like a Jeep

Hi folks,

didn't work a long time on my baby

Yesterday I found some time to work on the panel and on the lights.
Needed some self-motivation, so I put in the seats with the cover.
