Finished stretching the rear, started wiring the engine and fuel cell. All that's left for tomorrow is to finish the wiring and make the transmission crossmember work. One way or another I'm driving it home tomorrow night!

Installed a used MSD 6a according to Jeephammer's diagram. Definitely runs smoother.
Now to just figure out why in not getting hot air out of the heater.

My linkage came loose and wouldn't allow me to open the damper. My neighbor had a spare spring nut or whatever it's called. Gotta love Jeep neighbors!!!!!!

Went ahead and waxed my Jeep in preparation for this coming winter, I picked up some Meguiar Ultimate Wax. Later on I did some digging aorund the garage and found some tire shiner so that's on there now as well but not in the pic. Here it is after the wax

It would have taken me a month to build one like that.

I'm going to build some storage into the swing out behind the tire. Kind of pointless I know but it will come in handy.
