as it is raining right now here in Cali, trying to find something to do on the Jeepspeed, gotta keep steady progress or it will slip away.

Thats pretty intense, you should post this in the XJ section as well. It will probably get a lot of appreciation there.

Thanks, intense is right, had about 4-5 guys constantly helping me when it was tear down/thrash/frenzy time but now that it is the time consuming fab stuff and prep, I am a one-man builder, had to learn lots of tricks to do the three and four handed heavy jobs, with only 1 free hand. I will post in the XJ forum when I am able to post pics,
