I like the spoked wheels.

all black rims and black tires I think would be too much black but the milled edge on a couple of these would brake it up just enough

I honestly think the spokes you have now painted white would be sharp!

Hey Coiz, check out Jegs on-line catologue, you can plug in a white Wrangler and the choose the wheels, tires, and sizes and even see them spin. pretty cool if I say so myself. Tire Rack works about the same way too. As you can tell, most of us are more than happy with the decisions you have made so far. Have fun shopping

Mike, if you add more black you will have a black jeep with white accents!

Just my opinion and like bung holes, "everyone has one"...I would choose polished aluminum.

Factory slots, AR solids or even classic ten holes with a twist.

I see that wheels bring out some passion in most Jeeper's. You guys have a lot of good ideas and feedback. Like I had said, what I really want to do is get most the exterior of the CJ finished before I really take a step back and decide what I'm going to do. There is plenty of time before I have to decide on a pair of shoes.

BTW, that is a sweet CJ above. ^^^ Notice it also has black upper hinges and white lower hinge.

Finishing off the dash

Just some of the final details of the dash. I still need to clean up a little bit of the silicone, otherwise the dash is mostly done. Here is the windshield wiper cover with SS screws. Looks like I spaced that out right while test fitting before welding in the windshield bar.


You can't forget the "Oh Crap" handle. The roll bar use to rattle against the grab handle on hard bumps so in college I moved it over a little to the left.


In doing that I had to extend out the right side mounting ear.


I used some larger than normal washers to help distribute the load to the dash. They are about the same size for both sides.


Of course the glove box has been in for some time.


Steering column bezel and the aluminum pull knobs I helped make in the college metal lab in 1995. I tried to get a good picture without the flash to show the gloss of the clear coat.

Unfortunately my racing days are over but we do have plans to ride there again, most likely with NESBA, in 2012. We try to take one or two far tracks per year. By far I mean 12+ hours. We did Barber in 2007, Road Atlanta in 2008. I worked on the Jeep all of 09-10 so next year we are planning VIR and possibly RA or Barber again. I'm not too thrilled about the change to turn 12.

I have fond memories of Road Atlanta. I hope you guys don't mind me showing off a little bit and reliving my glory days of racing. Here is a shot of the start of B Superbike race, I am on the white and blue Suzuki #139. There are 54 racers behind me.




On that fateful July day in 2003, I won all three races I entered. I also won the solo 20 on Saturday.


And even got the perfect chance to pose for the camera.

Sweet pics. I like them! I did the Schwantz school in 2005 and still giggle like a school year thinking about turn 12. Off the chart exhilaration
