Bought some tools so I can start working on the build. A new creeper, floor jack, and a pair of jack stands to get underneath it, and a new drill, wire brushes and safety goggles to get the rust off underneath it.





and some of the parts I have been collecting.

Cut a hole in my firewall to the cowl.. Got the flex tube run. Windstar airbox cut up and rigged. Waiting on shipping for the hummer intake cap.

If I could just find a dang 4" to 3" 90 elbow I would be in business!

Also that dang sway bar isn't going anywhere with these beefy shaft collars I put on yesterday

Thanks! Every time I search for one google thinks it's okay to take '3" to 4" ' as '3/4'

I got bored and decided to pull my rear driveshaft. I think I figured out why it was squeaking at me.

feeling like I messed up putting the full top back on the frame... it was so much neater with nothing but the frame folded down....

think I am going to get some of the folding chair nylon bags to keep my side and rear window rolled up in, and stashed in the trunk/storage area, but now I don't need my emergency rain top...

and I had to take the windshield header off that the leading edge of the mesh bikini top fits into... though that's only a 1/2" socket and 5 minute deal.

I guess you cant have your cake and eat it too. maybe I just need a jeep for sunny days, keep it in the garage, and one for all the other days and park it in the driveway.
