Hey guys, don't worry I'm still ticking.

Sorry about my absence and lack of updates. I started a new job that has been very time consuming. My wife and I also purchased a new home, and that has further added to my busy life. I'm starting to feel a little more settled, but still not there yet. Otherwise everything is going just fine for all of us.

Our new home gives our family much more room to stretch. More room, and a safer place for the kids to play. More room for the dogs to run around. More room for my wife to stretch out and enjoy. For me, more room for my tools, my never ending projects, and more room for my completely dismantled jeep that has been unhappily sitting untouched and ignored. I miss working on it, and I am slowly getting the itch to get going again.

I appreciate you guys checking in on me, it only further motivates me to get going again...and that's a good thing. I'm just feeling a little overwhelmed with where to start again. I'm going to have to dedicate a couple days just to get my new shop organized, and ready to work on the jeep. I did after all load every part, engine, tub, frame, axles, fenders, etc. onto a moving truck and hauled them to the new house.

I'll try and get some pics of the new place up. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find my camera, and that's been driving me crazy.

Well, glad to hear your still on the right side of the grass. Sounds like you've been quite busy. I couldn't imagine having to pack up my project AND garage to relocate. No wonder you've had no time. It would be nice though to be able to re-organize your shop space, but at this point your probably just having to shift piles around just to make some assemblance of order. Unless your new house has one of them ji-normous garages we all dream of, then

Looking forward to your return to the project.

Overdue update:

This work was done at my old house some time ago. I just forgot to post it.

Working on the frame.

Bad body mounts, etc:





Snapped bolts = no fun


Removed the rear cross member


Repaired body mount, holes were later drilled. About 5 of the mounts needed new steel.



No wonder those bolts didn't want to come out


Repaired with new nuts and new steel on both sides

Again, work performed at my old house.

Sandblasted the frame in my driveway. What a pain of a job!





Re-attaching rear cross-member



Welded back on



This is basically where I am at right now with the build. I'm thinking my next step is to start coating the inside and outside of the frame. I have to get organized in my new shop first. I'm feeling a bit disorganized and rusty from my extended time off from working on the jeep.

I hope to have some new content soon for you guys. Thanks again for checking in with me guys, sure appreciate it.

Good thing you have a sandblaster!
Thanks for the update. Now jump back in that saddle. Springs just around the corner.

Adam, I coated the inside of my frame with Eastwood's internal frame coating. Kinda a PITA job, but glad I took the time to do it... gives you some piece of mind. Just don't know how it will hold up for the long haul. Still admiring your fab skills!

Thank You. Yeah I picked up a few cans of that stuff some 6 months or so ago. Did you tape all the holes or use ear plugs to prevent the paint from dripping out everywhere?

I used tape. Theres all kinds of different sized holes so it made it quicker to do. It's a very thin liquid so it can make a mess. Watch the spray button. I've used about 6 cans of that stuff so far and 5 of them leaked around the spray button and puddled in the top of the can.... until you tilted it, then it was everywhere. A regular spray button and straw will also work, for places the 1/8" hose won't fit.

Yeah, I used tape also... still made a mess, but did a pretty good job of cleaning it up as it happened. I still feel better knowing I tried to do something to help protect the inside of the frame.
