Oh and im not done with the stuff yet! I still need to do the floor pans I got welded in tonight, and SPRAY the POR, like I mentioned. I should have just lightly coated my hand in engine oil to keep the POR from sticking to my hands...I get bad rashes when I use latex, rubber (or whatever the other type is).

Still looking for a new radiator. I want to get the best price I can on an American made one (cheapest so far is $410)

Did a lot of patch pieces tonight, and gave my welder a workout! I welded the floor pans in better, with the help of my friend pushing it into place, and me tacking it. However I am VERY upset about the fit of the pans. They just generally don't fit. I had to use a lot of heat, and hammer work for them to fit. But I got them in. Some time this week I will be using POR... again, and then spraying the bed liner. Then things will be Rollin' along fast.

Sorry I forgot to take pics this time.

Here are some pics of what I have done more recently to the cab. Tonight I began prepping everything for some more POR and the bed coating. I also "sealed" the floor with some sealant, type A-1 I think. I spot welded the pans in, because I didn't want to put in too much heat that would warp the pans further. I need to go back later and fix the floor pans from inside the tool box area, because I couldn't get it to fit quite right (as seen in the photos). Overall the floor pans didn't fit, I had to bring out my torch and heat the metal, and hit it into the shape it should be. The metal on the floors is 16 gauge, but I did my best getting them to fit.


PICS:





















I have a deadline of September 27 to fulfill...that when the cab WILL be going on the frame

Oh and I am going to have to fix the "slop" in my clutch and brake peddles. what I have divised is taking a bushing, boring it out to the right size and them pressing it into place over the old stud thingie. I will them bore the peddle holes out so they fit over the bushing. Im going to use the drill press in the woodworking (area) shop

PICS:







BTW I know I will need to use 2 bushings to cover the stud thingie, I have several in stock so if I screw up, "oh well" and start over.


Just learned that my new *cough cough - $450 radiator will be in on Sunday. Picking it up at my friend's place...yes the friend who has all the Jeeps

Great project!!! As soon as I get my CJ and wagon done Id love to do one of the old trucks. I am in VA too--up by DC and I know a guy down near Glasgow VA who sounds a lot like the guy with the Jeep graveyard you are talking about--except he runs a business for old Jeeps, mainly Willys era stuff. He is also a distributor for POR-15, pm me if you want his info.

PICS: floor bans and rockers AFTER POR-15.












Tomorrow the bed liner is going to be sprayed on...I need to tape off a lot of stuff, and I have recruited my friend (different one this time) to hold some cardboard around the edge of the rocker so i don't end up giving my shop a nice layer of the stuff

oh and I went through 8 pairs of latex gloves; I had to replace them every so often so my hand didn't get too wet. (my skin blisters really easy if the skin is too wet) the total time it took was 70 minutes give or take 5 minutes for a bathroom break, and changing out the gloves. However, I still got some on my hands....and the floor...ok a lot on the floor. I'll just have to take a chisel to the floor after the POR drys to get it up.

In my experience gloves don't help at all with POR-15 because if you get enough on them it bleeds through. I have learned about the only thing that takes POR-15 off your skin is sandpaper.

A while back when we did the frame on my CJ we had the crossmember off, we taped up all the holes with duct tape (or so we thought), poured POR-15 inside the frame and me and a few friends picked it up, flipped it, and rolled it to distrbute it on the inside.....

My buddy Lucas was very unlucky and was by a hole that didnt get taped, POR-15 got all on the side of his face, down his neck, and all over his arms. He looked like he had been tared and feahtered for a week!
