I want to kick myself in the butt for not taking pictures of taking tub, etc. off but here is where i picked up the camera..kinda


Starting to take off the wiring harness and motor apart.







Taking the tranny and transfer off, have to replace first gear and synchros...went ahead and did the whole rebuild and seal kit on both cases.



Finally got everything off and now for to prime and paint chasis...





Tore everything off and primed and painted with high heat paint



Time to replace the cluch with the master kit..

Way cool, love the green/black combo. Now's the time for a new clutch kit save you work and time later.

Looks great so far.

hey blake already did it man...this is basically a complete turnaround on this jeep...i had it exactly 1 1/2 weeks before i tore it apart...so im really ready to get it finished..im just been waiting for past week or so for the weather to get warm enough to paint...here some more pics.


new master clutch kit...

had to replace some patch panels, instead of cutting the old floor out and patching it in the exact spot, i cut the rust out and patched over it...since im going to be spraying raptor in it this week, i think it will still look good..

Nice work, keep it coming along. How did you like the Raptor coating? I've just heard about it and may use it in my 3B tub floors.
