needed a break from pulling the other jeep apart so had the radiator out of Ole Red got a new one and was trying to think for the longest how to do a shroud for electric fan. tried it and hope it turns out good.

ok well ive been working on stripping body and doors to see the damage doors seem good now putting rustoleum auto primer on them to sell or maybe trade for half doors? dont know but body is disconnected from frame so now i can sell it all and bring the big red beast in here for next part of strip.


body is in no way perfect but its straight compared to my body on the red jeep with Character all over it. so figure some sheet metal pieces from Quadratec and rhino liner then it will be good again.

green doors are almost finished being sanded to metal and primer. how much should i ask for full doors they are in decent shape windows all there inside trim is there as well as door handles. im asking 700 this seems to be the going rate am i crazy heck ill settle with trade for half doors and maybe one or two hunskies? oh well hope this will be done tonight. got held up as my dog max had a seizure the other night so it was all night at emergency animal hospital then to his regular vet. all is good now back to the build

well hit a wall but got the tub ready to come off. hard to get it off by yourself, but where there is a will there is a way. so putting the highlift to use. the old fuel gauge wasn't working so assumed it was empty. Bad choice when had to pull out fuel tank had a huge fuel spill but cleaned and kept going. now i have to get rid of the frame and everything to pull the other jeep in to start tearing it down

ok well been a couple days had a bit of a scare thought i was going to report to school alot sooner than origanlly thought and miss birth of our first child, but luckily there are still some people out there who still look out for you and are understanding. so hoping to get a new date soon. well i got the tub off. hope to be rid of everything but the tub so i can start the teardown of the big red jeep. the only issue im having is my body mounts on the green tub had to be cut off to get it off. am i crazy or do they make the bolts for the kit http://www.quadratec.com/products/55008_00.htm or am i going to have to find someone to make.

well going to start on the other jeep today. pull it in the garage and start the tear down. army ingenuity we were able to get the green tub off the frame without the use of a cherry picker. high lift jacks stools and two 2x4's

my wife was saying how fun it would be to have the jeep with a lift this big. then i said i can get some duece and half axles for it.


pretty happy about getting that part done

she was saying how big of a mess the garage was but was happy the jeep was coming along

ok so got the frame in the driveway hoping for someone to take this thing off my hands so i can start the next part. now i ran into another problem. the thing i hate the most about jeeps is the dad gum star bolts that you have to use to get anything off that always freaking strips. well wife ran to harbor freights for me and got a left hand drill bit set and nothing. drilled them out and darn thing is still stuck on. somebody help
