Alrighty! I'm finally home! This is my new baby! I got her from a kid here in mustang who was planning on doing the same thing I want, but he had a change of plans and was into some financial troubles, so I happily took this off his hands! Her name for now is Bird S**t Blue,
at least until I get that god awful paint off her. Now for a little background...
This will be my first major project, other than your average tinkering with cars and bikes etc... As such, I looked for a jeep that needed a little bit of everything so that I can learn it all.
I'll be on the forum quite a bit for advice and such, so please bear with me haha. I'm guessing that to upload unlimited pictures, you have to have a certain amount of posts, so the majority of my pictures are yet to come, and don't worry, they wont be all iPhone pictures
Also, there are a few more things we have to do to the shop we've been building before true work can begin! Couple inspections to call in, couple things to add after inspection (if you know what I mean
), bring in the welder etc...
Some information about the jeep other than the afore said:
Side Steps (welded directly to the frame
Long Tube Headers (barely, and I mean BARELY fit)
Crappily Welded Roll Cage (Not tied into the frame, so worse than useless)
Some Nice Shiny Hazard Stickers (Like the ones on bikes
(Everything but the headers are to be removed)
12,000 lbs Wench (Actually works!
My Additions so far:
Rebuilt Brakes (Need to do it again, missing pieces)
Reran Brake Lines (Same as above)
New Starter Solenoid
My Plans at this point are to take the body off, repair all the cancer, media blast, paint/bedliner (undecided as of yet), complete rewire, lift, possibly regear, build rear bumper and tire carrier, and some other more obscure things.
