Quick update, I painted the inside of the tub with rust oleum out of the can and it came out good but it's a little glossy. I am way over budget on the build and figured I could always use a bed liner later on in the future. I cleaned up the seats I had but they are not a matching set, like everything else ill switch one out later on. Got the dash, wiring completed and added a tach I had laying around. Finished the tail light install and fuel filler too minus the hoses. The tuffy box is from the original jeep and I have the keys but I'm not sure if I can bring it back to life? Do they sell any replacement parts for it?

Great build. Are you going with a hardtop or soft? Or both?

I got the tires mounted today. Test drove it up and down the block and it sounds like the transfer case is whinny? If it was low on fluid would it make noise?

Just picked up some 80w90 to change out the transfer case gear oil. Should I expect a mess in the skid plate when I drain it?

Yes. I cut a hole in the skid under the drain plug on mine, otherwise it gets all over.

I wouldn't worry about the paint being to glossy. Rattle can will fade after a year or so.

Coming along nicely sir!

Looks great Vert! Get ready to give the skid plate a good cleaning after you get it off, they sure have a way of collecting stuff. Hey what size tires are those? They look great on there.

Thanks guys. I actually painted the inside of the tub with the rustoleum out of the one gallon can with a brush and roller. I'm hoping that holds up better than rattle can.
Jim, the tires are 34x10.5x15 and I'm very happy with the way they look.

I checked my u bolts today and they were loose so I tightened them and also hit the shackle hangers. Took it for a test drive and that seemed to help fix the vibration I thought was coming from the transfer case. Temp guage is not working so I hooked up an autometer mechanical guage and it seems that I'm running at 205 average. It goes to about 208 then drops to maybe 202 and back and forth. It seems a touch high to me do you guys think I should put a different stat in it? Other than that I'm having a ball getting this thing in working order

I put in a 12 volt power source to charge my phone while tearing up the trails. I picked it up at west marine and used a piece of angle to make a bracket. Ill get some pics up tomorrow

I put the hardtop and doors on and it all fit together well with minor adjustments. I started painting the hardtop with gloss back and then stopped because it looks terrible. I will pick up some satin black and try again. Ill spray the doors with the same paint as the jeep and I guess weld up the mirror holes on the doors.

Vert, why not use the 'Aged Iron' black version of that textured paint for the top? I used it on my heater box and it goes well. Makes me wish I used it everywhere else that I used the hammered black paint.

Here's how they look next to each other.

6 should be plenty, it's really the top portion that'll use the most paint. It looks best when sprayed over a black colored surface.

My neighbor used the aged iron on his cab-over box truck that he initially sprayed satin black. It came out great and holds up well.

That's a clean looking paint job. I dig it. I'm interested in your charger bracket, as I've been struggling a bit with that myself. My Hard top took 4 rattle cans of primer for a three coat finish. 6 ought to get you pretty far.
