Boy, is the YJ Dash so much more complicated than the CJ's. I sure wish it was a CJ, the dash would be done. Spent a little time looking for the body shifter bracket, finally found it still setting in my parts washer. At least I found it, I was getting worried looking for it. this afternoons work was focused on the dash, but also installed the rear seat brackets as well

Dropped the Windshield Frame off this morning to get new glass installed, should be ready on Monday. Spent the afternoon finishing the dash assembly, and then installed the shifter bracket and adjusted the linkage. I've also installed the fuel filler, and rear license plate. Also the new seat belts and seats are installed as well.

Thanks guys. The old seats will get me by until I determine what I'll go with long term. I hope to have it under it's own power tomorrow, that is if all goes well. It will be front wheel drive, as I still need to align the rear pinion angle and install the new SYE drive shaft.

Started out the day by making the final connections and double checking the electrical before starting the engine for the first time with the tub installed. All went well, and after connecting the front drive shaft, I actually moved the Jeep under it's own power for the first time since 2012-08-29. It was only a couple of feet, but she live again. I then installed the rear bumper, and hood before heading off to a lunch meeting. Right after lunch I had a a couple of shady characters stop by from the MIJC. But Frank and Jon are a couple of great guys, and it was a blast seeing them again since I missed the annual banquette. After we caught up on things and they got a good look at the Jeep and my other projects, it was time to pull the Jeep out and go for it's first trip around the block after the engine/transmission rebuild. WOW, it needs perhaps a little more tuning, and it was weird in front wheel drive, but she has plenty of pep, and I can even spin the tires now! For the rest of the afternoon, I proceeded to attach the hood items, and front bumper. I also started on the rear TJ fender flares and planning the front fender work. Other than the front fender work, I need to start a punch list as it's the little things that will get you.

Punch List
Install Windshield
Repair, Modify and Install Front Fenders
Install Fender Flares
Rear Pinion Angle Correction
Rear Drive Shaft U-Joint and Install
Front Axle U-Joint
Rear Wiper Relay/Wire Cleanup
Clamp Muffler and get Tail Pipe bent and installed

A little work this afternoon. I installed the Winch Hook Isolator and Front License Plate. I also installed the rear fender flares. I cleaned up the rear drive shaft and installed the new U-Joint, and measured the rear pinion angle. The initial measurement shows 9 difference, but it doesn't look like that much in the photo. I'll re-measure before I order a shim.

Started on the front fender modifications. Since I'm going to just go with the TJ flares for now, and make my tube fenders later, I'm trimming the front fenders close to what I'll need in the future that will still allow me to install the flares. The TJ Flare will extend further rearward than I plan on, so there will be some fender exposed inside the wheel well. I'll also have to shorten the flares front overhang to align with the bottom of the YJ fender. I picked up and installed the windshield. I then installed the sound bar and bikini top. I also installed the rear tail lights and swaybar disconnect links. A lot of fender work left, but that is where the majority of the work is left to do.

Worked on the fenders again today. Finished the drivers fender cut and patched the rusted areas. I also started on the passengers side fender, fortunately it's not as rusted.

Finished the fender modifications and repairs, as well as the final fit and attachment points for the TJ Fender Flares. I've not got the bare steel on the fenders primed, and will likely spend tomorrow sanding, filling, repeating in preparation for what I hope is painting the next day.

Well, started out the sanding, filling, sanding, repeating. However the third coat of body filler didn't set up very fast, and I eventually gave up, and scraped it off and re-applied. Apparently I didn't get enough hardener in it. While I was waiting I did install the mirrors, and started the rear axle shim install. Just need the longer spring pack bolts to finish the shim installation.

Long Day of sanding, prepping and painting on the front fenders. Outer Color paint is on, now to paint the engine side gloss, and the fender wells black. While waiting on the fill primer to dry, I tackled the rear pinion shim installation. I had a 9 misalignment and bought 6 shims to get it close. Well, with the 6 shims, the rotation of the pinion also moved it up approximately 1-2/3". This meant the pinion angle was now approximately 1 too for in the other direction! So after some measuring and drawing, I've discovered to correct my 9 angle issue, I only need 4 shims. This will bring the pinion to within approximately 2 of being aligned, which is about perfect. If I then add the 1" longer shackles it should be about 1.5 off, still in the correct direction and acceptable.

Well, I replaced the front axle U-Joint that was bad. Had to go back to O'Reilly's to get a good complete U-Joint, but while I was there I also picked up the needed wiper blades. I also painted the inside of the fenders black, and the engine side Gloss Tan. Additionally I also connected (not mounted yet) the marine amp for playing music from my phone or MP3 player. Tomorrow I hope to install the fenders, wiper blades and attach the Jeep decals. That will leave me with needing the front fender side lights to be legal.
