Started on the tailgate this morning with intentions of just lightly sanding the white paint so I could just top coat with the spray can. I hand sanded the outside of the tailgate with no issues and it came out nice. The inside had several deep scratches down to bare metal so out came the angle grinder and wire wheel. It's now primed with the first coat of the final color drying. I hope to have it installed by tonight.

I met actor Kevyn Major Howard ("Rafter Man" from Full Metal Jacket) this weekend. He is the president of Fueledbythefallen.org , a non profit organization who financially assists 9/11 first responders, military vets and the children of the fallen. The organization has memorial vehicles in honor of 9/11 victims and those service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Here's some pics of their "Angel cars" that were on display this weekend out in Laughlin Nevada. Kevyn is a great guy and his organization is doing the right thing!

I ran out of paint so I decided to test fit the tailgate today. You can see how light the one coat of paint on the tailgate is compared to the 3 on the tub. I figure I can paint over any scratches tomorrow after I pick up some more.

I'm glad I bagged and tagged everything during disassembly because I had to find and reuse the (wavy) tension washers on the tailgate latches. A minute on the wire wheel and they were ready to install.

One more day off before I have to work 9 straight so finishing up the tailgate is gonna be it for a while.

Got two more coats on the tailgate and installed it. I still think it looks lighter than the tub but that may be due to the tub having a dark primer and the tailgate having a grey primer. Oh well, moving on!

I'm halfway done stripping the hood and my angle grinder took a dump, go figure seeing as was already at HF once today.

I found out in another thread about front bench seats that my unknown inner seat bracket is actually a bench seat bracket with the sliders. Cool.

I just got in from another successful day at the junkyard. I went there for a Contour fan for this build and found one right away, pulled it and moved on.

The next stop was the Cadillac section for the 3 Bosch relays and mounting bracket, found five sets and pulled them all. These will wire my contour fan, electric fuel pump, aux fan on my rollcage and anything else that may require a relay (headlights?).

I was heading out and figured I would look in the Jeep section before I leave. I found an 89 Grand Cherokee with a 360/auto. It had PS/PB/AC/CC and 44's front and rear and it was all there. It even had all of the chrome trim and emblems.

I pulled the PS pump and brackets, AC Compressor and brackets, Alternator and brackets, both 3 groove pulleys and a bunch of other little stuff that also fits the CJ's.

I'll resell what I don't use.
