79 CJ5 build

Since I am a newbie on here, thought I should post some pics of the build for input or constructive criticism, this is my first jeep and im ready for it to be done allready. I purchased it 2 months ago and hope to have it done by May if I dont go broke first.

sonicr1 when you did your frame what did you use to prep & paint, I am also wire wheeling mine at this time and will be ready to paint it this weekend, yours is looking good, I am so glad I am done with the welding thing, I ordered the replacement panels and none of them even came close to fitting, I ended up fabing my own, what a headache.
