Nice to see in the last photo that you have a help in the shop. My boys always like to help me when I'm working on the Jeeps.

Got most of my exhaust system finished today. Everything but the headers are made of 304 stainless steel. I hand-polished the pipes from the glasspacks and back. Damn, that took some time and buds!

Put on a new oil pan. The old one got too beat up when I took it off to replace the oil pipe.

Well, for some reason I felt the urge to do a little painting today. I started painting the heater stuff. It was very dirty and the adjuster system was stock. After a good cleaning and some WD40, it worked like new again.







The blower engine is toast so a new one is on it's way. Need to clean the housing first






Can someone tell me what this rusted out dingy is? Do I need it or could I just let be that way?





Here you can see the rusted part again. It's just below the blower motor


The duct housing painted matte black.




Got my front driveshaft in place


And finally a pic of my new HEI dizzy with LiveWires

Figured I needed a fuel pressure gauge to help me dial in the TBI system. I chose one that is liquid filled so that it is easier to read when the engine is running




I also finished wrapping the driver side header with ThermoTech. What a pain in the a**. There are many oppinions on wrapping the headers. I will only be driving this Jeep on sunny days so I don't worry about the tape being wet and causing the headers to rust. I have had great succes with wrap on other projects, so it was naturally for me to use it on this one also


It is no secret that Fatman is one of my greatest inispirations and I truly admire his work. In an attempt to copy his skills, I was pretty sure, that the first step in reaching my goal, was to get a pair of safety flip-flops

That rusted out thingy is a drain tube for the blower housing. After the housing is installed there is an "L" shaped rubber hose that caps the tube and directs the water away from the firewall and onto the ground.

LOL, that's just funny as hell.
This is a great loking build, really enjoy the attn to detail !
Love the V8. Matter of Fact, this winter I'm going to start a 454 swap into the Yellow Jeep. Have my 6.32 ratio T-18, all I need to do is find the right block to build.
I've got about $2,500+ into my existing 4.2 that I'm going to have to part out in the fall to pay for the new build.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you very much. I had a '76 Cj5 in which I swapped a 454 BBC. Scary with all that HP and Torque in a '5. Here's a pic of it

Got my 4wd fiberglass tub and one piece front end. Both things are looking great and I'm looking forward to get started on them








Can anyone help me with figuring out where to connect these things on the trans/transfer

The one on the TC is for the 'Emergency Drive' light and the one on the trans (I believe) is for the reverse lights .

Today was a very good day! I got my fiberglass tub mounted. It's starting to look like a Jeep again. I used the body mounting kit from 4wd.com. I cut the body rubber for outriggers 2 and 3 at 2". Do you guys think I have enough room for 35" tires? I plan on using TJ flares and trim the body for more clearance. The tires on it now are 33" on 8" rims

The one on the trans is the kickdown/passing gear switch.
Your reverse lights/neutral safety combo switch should be mounted to your steering column.
