I did have one question, how do you pull the air ducting out, I have the heater box out of the tub already but its almost like the duct work is held in place by some sort of sealant. That is the last thing I need to pull prior to heading off the the sandblaster. that and the bottom door hinges.

Did you take out the screws from the topside of the cowl?

Yea i did, its almost like there is a sealant or a epoxy of some sort holding the ducting in, all fasteners are removed. the only thing left in the tub besides the ducting is the roll bar and gas pedal.

And not to be redundant but I don't mean just the grille screws, there are 4 others yet under that. You may have, I just wanted to make sure. Sometimes the other ones get missed.

got it out, ended up being some sort of sealant holding it in, once i got brave and put a small pry bar on it it popped right out, i was just scared to break it...

I was also able to get the roll bar out and found much more rust than I was expecting based on the rest of the body....none the less it is better than most, at least speaking in terms of midwest jeeps.

400 for all that you see, he wants another 125 to do the roll cage and dash...which seems high based on the work he did for 400...maybe he is making it up on the back end.
