The grill shell is final sanded and ready for paint. I dropped the Tub off at the Body Shop to get the bottom re-undercoated. I've got the Hood, Grill Shell, Windshield Frame and Tailgate all loaded up and ready for the trip to the paint booth. Then hopefully time in the paint booth and start painting. I've started collecting all the miscellaneous small parts that I'll need to clean and paint for re-assembly.

My buddy at the Body Shop got the undercoating complete on the underside of the tub Monday. The advantage of him doing it is not only the material he uses, but he also has the special coating/tools to get inside all the channels. Next comes paint.

Well, after several holiday trips and battling either the flu, or one of the worst sinus colds I've ever had, and now being up against a dead line of getting the Jeep inspected and the license renewed by the end of the month, I ended up hiring out the painting. I'd preferred to have painted it my self, but just ran out of usable time. I still have a lot of little parts to paint my self, and to also bed line the inside of the tub, so stay tuned. The paint looks great, it did come out more of a satin finish rather than a flat, but looks good and should be durable, just not as easy to touch up. My body work was good, just not perfect or as nice as I did on the '46 Power Wagon, but for the Jeep it will be just fine.

Well, I set up my paint area in the shop, and proceeded to paint the underside of the hood and engine side of the tub, in the gloss version of the Sahara Tan, as compared to the flat/satin that is on the rest of the body. I did this as I want these areas to be easily cleaned of any engine compartment crap. However apparently I didn't properly prep the leading underside of the hood where it's painted flat, as when I pulled the tape, it lifted an area of paint. looks like I'll have some touch up to to at a later point. I've also started cleaning and prepping the miscellaneous parts for paint as well. Next I'll paint the inside of the tub firewall black, and then prep the rest of the tub inside for the bed liner.

Painted the interior firewall black, as well as continued cleaning and painting miscellaneous parts, that is until I ran out of black paint.

Absolutely awesome work, really impressive! Im picking up on metal working tips just from scanning through your thread. Brings back good memories from when I had an 87' yj, keep up the incredible work. Cannot wait to see more.

Thanks, not sure my work is that impressive, as everything I look I see where I could have done better. Just need more patience I guess.

After letting the fumes air out of the shop, I cleaned up a bunch of fasteners, and sanded the roll bar, then painted it all. Depending on what tomorrow brings, I hope to soon be setting the Tub back on the frame.

Started out the day by sorting out the fasteners I painted. Only had three that I'm not sure where they go, at least for now. As you can see the roll bar came out nice, the lower bed lined portion looks great. I discovered that after all the engine, transmission and transfer case work, I a leak re-appear, so I had to hold off on installing the tub. I looked it over, and found the oil coming from the weep hole in the transmission tail housing. Figured it's the rear transmission seal, so I proceeded to pull the transfer case back off. Well, guess what I found. Apparently the transmission shop missed replacing the rear seal, as it still had the Chrysler penstar emblem on it. So I called the shop, and they came out and gladly replaced it right after lunch. He was surprised he missed it, but it was indeed the old seal and hard and brittle. While I was waiting for them, I proceeded to clean up a lot on interior dash parts and wiring harness. After the seal was replaced I re-installed the transfer case, and then proceeded to install the tub. Next came the heat shields and emergency brake cables. Then I proceeded to the tailgate. Still have some paint to touch up, but it fits and works great. A little engine side wiring routing, and installing the radiator support rods were next. And last, but not least, with help from my neighbor, I installed the roll bar. It sure looks a lot better, and much closer to being a driver again.

Man oh man that looks great. Bedliner looks really good to, I had herculined my yj's tub and it looked very similar. Once I take my cherokee through deep enough water I may pull the carpet and bedline it as well. Now comes the easy work, keep at it

Well, a little more cleaning and painting. I then started assembling the windshield for a test fit. Dang I hate Jeep Windshield fit and hinges. It's on but hinge quality and alignment is always an issue. I'll pull it off and get the glass installed before it's final installation. I also installed the Parking Brake assembly, Brake Pedal and Booster, as well has the Heater.
