Frame's gonna be better than new. I know what you're going through with the Florida humidity. As much as I want to work on my jeep, it's just to blamed humid. I'm afraid to take deep breath; afraid I might drown... I love the hot weather, but about this time of year I'm ready for some cooler days.
It's like pushing a boulder up a long hill! It should be as good as new, at least, but I don't think it's 3/16 anymore!
I'm with ya on the hot weather... just wish the sweat would dry up!
The frame looks great
Now, resist the urge to see if the paint is curing by touching it every few minutes, wait a few days
Cracked me up! That's exactly what I did!! And since I was at a loss of what to do while the frame dried, I walked circles around it touching it. Is it dry yet? Nope... Is it dry yet... nope. I ended up going in the house and did some reloading while I waited. That's a GREAT diversion. Glad to report that it is dry now!
Frame looks great! Glad you got it all straightened out. I'll probably be painting mine this week.

the site is better than ever and growing fast.
Thanks, Nick. Be sure and post pics of your work.
Skerr, glad to see you are back on track... We here in the Houston area can relate to the hot and humid summer. I guess this was payback for us having such a nice winter for a change last year. This summer reminds me back when we have hot summers... Anyway, keep up the good work, looks like it has turned for you now.....
Thanks, Calvin. We had a nice winter too. I surely hope it has turned!
Scott your paint is looking great! Will be looking forward to more progress!!!
I know Clay is looking for some progress. Ken commented earlier in the thread if I thought Clay would stay locked in. He is flagging! Gotta get some new stuff going to get him perked up. The frame has been killer slow.
Found a Bestop Supertop with hardware for $275. Also found the complete heater box assembly, which Clay doesn't have. "Met" a guy via PM in Ohio off of the For Sale section of JF. A really nice guy and I enjoyed talking with him.
Was doing fuel tank research on Morris' web site, looking/pricing all the needed parts. Why in Hades would a fuel return line (vapor line) cost $98?? Can't something else be used... Rubber? Brake Line??
