You can buy beer/booze from pretty much anywhere here in Florida, from a guaranteed bona-fide Indian store, too. But Wal-Mart is the biggest Bubba store we have. You can get underwear, jeans, smokes, chew, bait, beer, wine, tires, batteries, tools, groceries, and drugs, all at once!

NV is the same. Except you can gamble and get a hooker too.

I don't know how you fab guys make it look so easy. It literally took me all day to rebuild the bottom piece of the A pillar. Not perfect, but good enough.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! With all the major welding done on the tub it is time to finish up a few smaller projects. I have a nice set of YJ doors I will be using but they are locking and I have no interest in ever locking the doors. So I welded up a patch for the cylinder. Once I took the latches out and cleaned them up I neeed to make sure they did not lock any more. The 2nd pic shows the lock pivot. When you lock the doors it pivots and disengages a metal arm from releasing the latch. I put it in the unlocked position and tack welded the pivot.

Well, in typical fashion I did not get everything done this winter that I wanted to but its fine. I will get this project done eventually. Spent past month or so doing detail work on interior parts, powder coating, and tonight finished customzing my painless harness for my dash.

You know, as careful as I was with tying up wiring, tucking it here and there, installing loom, etc, it still looks like crap! I'm like Pigpen when it comes to wiring! Nice job on the doors, Paul. I had missed that.

I refurbed my crusty headlight buckets the other day. I powder coated the inner buckets with "silver base" and painted the outers because of the plastic adjusters. One bucket had both plastic screw adjusters holes stripped. Screw just slid in and out of the hole.

Wanted to pass along a tip I just learned on a RC hobby site. Cut a piece of zip tie and slide it into the hole and then run in the screw. Worked like a champ! You can kinda see the zip tie in the close up pic.

Is there a post in this thread that details your powder coating setup?

You know, I don't think I ever posted up about my PC setup Ken. I have a dual voltage gun from Eastwood http://www.eastwood.com/dual-voltage...owder-gun.html and an old oven I got off craigs list for like 25.00. I have a few Eastwood powders but get most of my powder from this place: https://www.powderbuythepound.com/ They have a black called "Black Magic" that I really love.

I just set the oven rack on a couple of saw horses, shoot some powder while oven is warming up and about 20 minutes later... done.

The dual voltage makes it easier to get powder into tight corners. Flipping it to low volatge allows the powder to get into tight spaces and I remove the deflector for more direct application. Most of the time I am running it on high voltage with the deflector to make a cloud of powder to cover the piece.
