Put some more power steering fluid in it after work today, and then it worked just fine. Bled the brakes real quick, and drove it out of the garage for the first time!

Thanks guys for all the compliments! now who want's to come finish it for me? This is usually the point where I get so excited to just get it done, that I start cutting corners and do a half *** job just to get it done quicker.

Here's another pic from last night.

Was just going through all my Jeep pictures, and thought it would be fun to recap the evolution of this now 3 year project.....

So lets start where it all began, the day I brought this Jeep home for the first time, 3 years ago now. It was a death trap, barely legal (actually not at all because nothing worked, and had a fraudulent inspection sticker on it), and it looked like this then. wasn't out any money though, since I traded a four wheeler for it. The only thing I have left of this original Jeep is the motor, trans, and transfer case, and hood!

Almost 2 years later, last April, it looked like this:

And now, back to this! Target day for completion is July 29, 2013, or sooner, so I can keep the new build under one year.

Looks great! I will say one thing, you have been smokin' it to do all that you have done in 3 years! Especially this last year! Good luck on the target date. I missed mine several times! Maybe you will make up for my missed ones.

Well, I took it up and down the road today, maybe a mile total. For the first time, I actually wasn't afraid to drive it! It handled pretty good. Best of all, no more death wobble! no more slop in the steering. That right there made the decision of replacing the whole chassis worth it! Just working on little odds and ends now this weekend.

Got a few more things crossed off the to do list this weekend. Got the parking brake hooked up and working, got the roll bar finished, and bikini top on, installed my KC lights on the front, did all the under dash wiring, got the dash installed, and installed the drivers seat. Got a little carried away with the buffer yesterday too, and burnt a hole right down to the primer, so I had some paint to fix first thing this morning too. Getting close!

Alright, now I think I got a problem. Was re-installing my shifter on the T-176 tonight, and accidentally dropped a small screwdriver bit down into the tranny I believe. I stuck a borescope down into the tranny from the top to see if I could find it, but couldn't find it in there anywhere. It's shifting fine, and runs fine through all the gears for now. If it is laying down in the bottom, is it going to hurt anything? I'd really hate to have to pull the tranny out and take it all apart at this point in the game!

If you have the shifter plate off and gear oil drained I would spray everything down with some type cleaner so you can see better. No way I would take that chance after all the hard work you've put into it. I would go buy a small flexible magnet and try to get it down in there to find it. Great job jeep look great DON'T LET A 1$ BIT RUIN THE BUILD.

The only problem is I can't get the shifter plate off all the way without dropping the trans. Might try a magnet on the end of a wire coat hanger to see if I can get it.
