Jiminy that came out well, Paul. Unbelieveable! And the zip-tie trick... just stick a straight piece up in there? I am so GLAD you shared that.

Paul the headlight buckets look nice and so does the sheetmetal work. Glad to see you working at it!

Yeah man.... I was surprised how well it worked.

It is a beautiful spring day here in northern Virginia! Headed out to the garage to get some things done.... I feel some motivation coming on.....

Spent the day sand blasting, painting and powdercoating. Can't wait till I have nothing left to blast. Hours of blasting and 10 minutes of powdercaoting is annoying!! Guess I could buy a better blaster. Maybe some day. Bigger pieces I am just gonna outsource. Nothing spectacular to see but everyone loves pics so here are a couple. May put the tub on its side tomorrow and finish removing undercoating.

Finished stripping the undercoating off the YJ tub. Used a needle scaler and it worked well. Just very time consuming but less of a mess than aircraft stripper. Ready to send it off to the media blaster. I noticed a few pin holes in some of my repairs but I will fill those when it comes back from blasting.

Your parts are looking great Paul. I know what you mean about the sandblasting. I did buy a good blast cabinet that has the pressurized tank and can tell you it works better than I could have imagined it would. Tub bottom turned out clean too.

Thanks Jim! I think I am going to drop the tub on the rolling chassis today and test fit things. This alone will be a challenge. I have a chain hoist connected to a steel I-beam through the garage that I use to lift the tub. Need to empty the garage and see if I have enough room to spin the chassis 180* to drop it on.

I cannot believe it has been 2 yrs since my last post! Lost motivation, changes at work and in life put this project on hold. Sold my house, moved to WV and as soon as this is done being built work will resume on the CJ!!! Right now it is in storage until house is done. For those of you that remember me, I did not die. I have a lot of reading to do on jeepforum to catch up with people!

Glad to hear that you are still with us, Paul! Feeling OK??

Quite often, life throws curve balls at us that change our plans.

That's a nice house! Best wishes to you, and keep in touch.

Thanks Rich, feeling great! Can't wait to get moved in and back to work! Garage is a bit smaller than my old one but it will do. Anyone know if Eddie (Besrk) is still making bumpers? I have his rear bumper and want to pick up one of his fronts.

Well now it makes sense. When I finished my Jeep I drove it down to your house to help you finish yours..... but you weren't there! Welcome back.
Better get that front door on, winters just around the bend!

Paul to say you've been missed around here would be an understatement! Nice house you're going to have there and I'm sure looking forward to seeing you back at work on the Jeep. Glad you feel like getting back at it too my friend!
