Mike it's really shaping up great. I think the lower door hinges will look great painted black.

Mike- Can you lay the hood up there for a pozer? I'm dying to see it!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Mike, when you said applied silicone to the back side of windshield gasket. Did you apply silicone UNDER the gasket?? I'm glad to see silicone at the hinges, because I was thinking about it, and the expert confirmed it... thanks

I don't know what the measurement should be for a CJ7 but the top edge of my windshield to the tailgate lip is right at 75" at both ends. I know the angle is close because I used the doors as a guide. Even once it is all back together it is pretty simple to loosen the bolts and give it a little less or more angle.

Thanks. I have been to Silver Lake back in the late 90's. I actually stumbled across a photo packet the other day that had a bunch of pictures from there. Maybe I'll copy and post a couple for everyone. Not sure about the valve covers. I'm guessing they would work but you might have to do the same as me and install the 1" plenum spacer. The CJ will be stored for the winter, no salty roads for it.

I mentioned that because it doesn't quite fit right. All of your responses confirm I should change it to black.

I can't risk scratching everything trying to to it by myself. I've got a friend stopping by later so maybe we can throw in on there for a minute.

Yes, I decided to seal the entire gasket top and bottom. That's how it was when I pulled it apart and I never had the dash leaks I've seen some people with CJ's fight. I also never really see me driving with the windshield folded down so I wasn't worried about that. Honestly, I think I would have been fine sealing the seal to the windshield frame and leaving between the seal and the tub cowl dry but it is all sealed up now so what's done is done.

Defroster Vents

Many of you thought my center defroster vent was a great idea as it should eliminate the CJ frost pyramid in the center of the windshield and should keep it fully defogged. I had previously shown how I made the small center vent and painted them all with black BC/CC. Here are the defroster air relief cuts in the windshield frame.


Here are the ducts installed.


Too bad you can't even see them from the front or the interior.

Man that looks good! For a minute there Mike I thought you were going to tell us for some reason the center defrost vent wasn't going to work.

It look like you planed out the defrosters and roll bar at the same time for that grate look on the inside of the jeep.

Wheels ???

I was going to wait until spring and was thinking about posting a poll to get some different opinions. I was hoping someone would be able to take a picture of my mostly completed CJ and photoshop some different wheels onto it.

My initial thoughts were to keep what I have and either paint or powder coat them black. I've had a couple people suggest I paint the wheels white with a black stripe around the outer edge. My initial thought is that would be too much white but I might spray paint a wheel and put it on just to see since I will have to strip them all anyway.

My other thought is to buy some new wheels for a better look and to try to find a set with better backspacing to move them out an inch or so. If I can't move them out with wheel backspacing I might get a set of wheel spacers. I'm not a big fan of wheel spacers but I also know that they work fine with proper install and torque.

So as far as wheels I was either going to stick with my black wagon wheels, which should look something like this once repainted black.


A few different styles that have caught my eye, in no particular order.

Ill weigh in 1 up from the bottom on the left. The holes are simple so they arent to 'flashy' or distracting. Go black with a white stripe.
