Removed factory steps, only took me 4 years. Only thing worst then old rusty bolts, is old rusty boats covered with rhino liner… hr with the grinder is all it took. But that was after almost an hr or trying to get a wrench on it/trying to drill it out. Rhino smokes a bunch when you grind on it.

Removed all the flares, and prepped rear with tape to cut/ install TJ flares next weekend.

Removed La Bra. PO put it on, and I was afraid to see what it would uncover, but it had to come off for the flares. Not as bad I had hoped.

First time my boy was helpful, working on the jeep. He is not quite 3 .

Ok, so I got her back from the shop. Turns out if a Jeep sits outside for ten years something might move into the exhaust system. The catalatic converter was full of derbis and weighed about 8 lbs. Spark plugs needed to be replaced too, (was pretty sure I already did that, guy said something about how Jeeps don't like champion??) A few adjustments on the carb and the timing (guess the distributor was a little loose (pretty sure I did that too. loosened the distributor that is) and $460 later she's running pretty good!!! Best news is she passed smog so I can get plates now! But I need to do the brakes and find out why the headlights won't come on first. Oh and fix the brake light switch so I don't have to keep disconnecting the battery

God, guts, guns....without them we have no FREEDOM!

replaced the carb, 'fixed' the exhaust with a tomato soup can and a couple of radiator clamps, fired it up myself for the first time, and took a spin around the block...

stay tuned!

While I'm waiting on rear-end parts, I replaced the broken radio, and am presently diagnosing the fuel gauge.

Drove it! And went to an autobody shop to see how much welding a new rear floor panel would run me. $325 and that includes undercoating it and fixing the hole the previous owner made with the drive shaft. The only thing is he recommended I didn't use the 19 gauge rear floor panel from JC Whitney (witch is $78). I looked at 4wd.com and the rear floor panel in there was $378! I need advice on this, which floor panel to use or just live with the gap at the rear floor step for now until I restore. Its my daily driver, so replies would be nice. Have a JEEPIN Day!

Tinkered with the leak in the fuel supply line.
Brought the BESRK bumpers home from the Ag shop. They need the space to teach welding or something like that. Go figger.
Put bumpers in basement.
Covered up the Rust Bucket with a brand new tarp!
Since it's in the almost roofless garage that the tarps blew off of last week.

But it does run and sounds like a real bad-arse.

Tore apart the carb last night and soaked part of it in cleaner (did not have enough to do it all in one shot). Cleaned that part off and soaked the rest of the carb tonight. Hopefully I will have it done by the weekend.
