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!

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.
