What paint scheme are going to put on the tub? I know that is a ways off, but just curious.
Thank you very much. Paint scheme....there's a long way . I'm thinking about the Wrangler JK color "Red Rock Pearl". Or maybe a mix of orange and copper. I also considered a mix of dark grey with a little brown and add orange ghost flames. But aren't flames just a fashion thing that went outta hand?

What in the world.....That picture doesn't smell like Jutland. And how did you know that it smells in Jutland? Over here, Jutland is actually the redneck part of Denmark. So yeah, it kinda smells due to the large amounts of farms. Did you use the Google translator? The grammar isn't perfect, but very very close.

Update 27. december 2008

Finally get to reassemble to rear brakes and put on my temporary wheels. Started working on the wires too. Made a little waterproof collector box to split the wires into the two tail lights and the hitch. The track rod and steering rod are in place also.

I sell Jeep parts in Denmark, and I buy them from another dealer who get's them made over here. So they are kind'a no name . But they are very strong and good looking. Should I send a pair to the states?

Finally the engine and trans is in! That sure feels good. Took a little time to get it in, but it was a great day. My dad helped me out all day. Talk about some father/son time....you never get too old for that!

Impressive. It's nice to see someone take such care with a rebuild.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

Got a little more done today. Made a block-off plate for the fuel pump, opened the box with the Holley Projection4 system and found out I needed a new fuel pump for the system, and tried to figure out a good way to route the exhaust pipes. And for the life of me, I can't figure out what the what-it's-name beside the carburator is for? There's no room for it when I install the TBI. Is it just a vacuum I could take somewhere else?

Nice build!

You can replace that fitting with a brass plug or a 90 degree barbed fitting if you need the vacuum source and get it out of the way of the throttle body.

Plug it if you don't need the vacuum. If you do need it, you can get adapters for a single outlet, dual, triple, etc...

And by the way, you're doing a great job. That thing is beautiful!
