looks like the build is coming along nicely. What are the long term plans for it?

Not really sure yet. The steel top might be moved to my 74, and I have a steel half-cab I might clean up and put on this one. Also working on some rocker protection and frame tie-ins.

Working on some rocker protection for my 78, and cleaning up and painting the bumper and corner guards on my 74.

Your rattle can paint job looks great! I'm partial to the Allis Chalmers Orange! I painted my XJ with the same color from Tractor Supply. I used the Valspar Restoration Series tractor paint, and a buddy of mine, who happens to be a painter at a body shop gave me a hand! I had planned on rattle canning it, but I'm OCD as well, and I know if it wasn't perfect, it would have bothered my down the road! I'm definitely grateful for my friend lending a hand! The valspar paint worked out great! Check it out!

Now I'm trying to decide whether to leave my 74 CJ5 that I'm working on the original Jet Set Blue, or to paint it too!

I've been looking for ideas for the passenger front seat since it is a pain in the *** to climb through to the back. Anyone seen a front seat setup like this?

Looks like a Helluva good time! I used to have fun like that but My floors rotted totally out,clutch went bad, motor got puny, rockers and generally rotted everywhere else but man was it fun. For whatever reason I went for the full Monty frame off. Motor ,tranny,axles,welding , bondo, paint. Im nearing the end of a 1year resto and I'm wondering how long till I have the stones to wheel it again. What you've done looks like more fun to me now! Giver 'ell.

So, basically I switched my focus from working on my 78 to working on my 74. Giggity x 2.

Still working on the 74. I'm making some more progress on this. The dash is out and painted, gauges are in. I cut the dash where the glove box door is and moved the opening over an inch and a half to the left to clear the roll cage. Added a glove box I made from a cut down ammo box, and built a new defroster duct to replace the wtf cardboard original duct. I worked on replacing the burnt out bulbs, and added some ground wires for the circuits under the dash.
