Just a bit of an update! No time to work on her but the River Raider snorkel came in and the Rubi higher rate springs are on there way. Also ordered a set of cj style mirrors for her to get a little more view on the doorless mirrors!!

Crap! Wish I knew Vin! Just bought on eBay a package from a new jeep of 18's and 60's.

Are you getting carried away again?.......lol

I actually re read your first post....mild build. I'm not sure that you can help yourself.

Quit the day job, and build expedition Jeeps.....kidding!

I'm still trying to get over there, thinking of a fall scenery run across rt. 6 then down for that beer..........

Oh man, I almost started sweating looking at the size of the hole that you cut in the cowl. Not because you cut there but because of the fact that sometimes the larger hole saws will grab on the thin sheet metal and “jump” out and screw up the surrounding area. Been there done that.

Anyhow obviously it didn’t happen to you and those holes came out fantastic, excellent job.

Thanks!!!! Definitely no expert. Just good at hole sawing ! Always pilot hole and start cutting the hole in reverse. Anyway got a little farther tonight and relocated the battery. It should all go back together tomorrow!

Just a note: I'll be using my AEV pre cleaner, not the one in the dry fit pic.
