Now I'm just waiting on parts.

Today I went in and gt the vacuum stuff coming off the carb all cleaned up, fixed/replaced leaky lines(power steering, radiator). The leaks seem to be done for now, and the back fire is gone. I am thinking that was in the carb somewhere.

Thursday I will be pulling all of the interior and taking it to Line-X of Boise to get done, while it's down there I will be re-doing the entire dash(replacing the pad, the entire panel, and the gauge plate, LED Conversion, and hopefully getting my temp gauge and fuel gauge working properly!)

Have you thought about lining the interior yourself vs having LineX do it? I just sprayed Raptor in mine for a whopping 130.00 (you can see it on the build thread on my signature). Unless the Line X people are giving you a sweetheart deal, doing it yourself can give you extra pocket money for other areas of your Jeep and keep you on your Daddy's good side.

herc is like 30 grit sandpaper. Ouch.. i dont like it either. i have seen some good results with the Monstaliner. it is much smoother and looks durable. most of the labor is the prep work, but i can save you a few $$ if you DIY?? its a personal preference.

Not sure if I'm the only one reading this or if it's just cause no one is posting? Hmm Well I'll keep going!


Got the rest of my LEDs in for the full dash conversion AND FINALLY got my jeep forum Sticker, is it bad that I will be displaying it on my dash?

Friesc,

You put your "Jeep Forum" sticker wherever the hell you want to. It is your jeep and your sticker. I wouldn't even be leaving such a subjective issue up to forum members. It is your jeep. Have fun. Put it where you want to.

Take care,

Got my appointment to get the Line-X done - including the sandblasting of the tub and a area where I KNOW they will have to cut and weld in a new section (10 sq inches or so) it will cost $700. Goes in on the 25th - out on the 27th
The dash will be put together while the jeep is in, I will also be getting ready to paint and setting up my in home booth! It's almost all together for the summer list, just need to get my transmission looked at(can't seem to figure out where the rattle is from, but almost sure it's in there) and the radiator rebuilt.

Wooo!

Also - if anyone has experience replacing the entire handle on a acme hard top door I would love some input, Mine have rusted off completely and will need replaced before winter comes around.

Been too long

It's been too long but Ive got the jeep back and I'm slowly making progress! The tub is lined, and the dash is together for the most part, now I'm going to get the sand blaster out and do all of the smaller pieces like the seat mounts and pedal hardware. I will be out of town for about two weeks coming up so it will put a damper on things. I've got some picture to share!


These first three are stripping down the tub to get it ready.




This dag gamn torx bolt bent or sheared off three separate torxs. Once we got to drilling it out it ate 6 different bits.


Here are two more of the strip




After I got it stripped I was determined to have it prepped properly before I got the liner in. Sand blasting was very efficient.




and the final product of the line-X!





I also told you the dash was coming along. I have some picture of that as well.




The wiring is gonna be a long mess but I'll get it done!

Hope to have some more frequent updates!
