Dropped off the frame & several other goodies at the galvanizer this morning. I walked back out to my trailer after checking in at receiving to find the owner checking out the frame Turns out he's a Jeep Junkie too and is excited to be working on it...I think he may have bumped me up in the queue since he wants me to bring it to the Chillicothe Jeep Fest in July...

From what I have read, you may or may not ever get what you have ordered and they have terrible customer service. Engine is looking fantastic though.

Thanks for the heads up. Might be better off sticking with the stock pulleys/belts & finding a timing cover that's in better shape vs. taking the risk.

Here is a thread where members talk a little bit about their experiences. The parts are first rate if you get them.

Thanks...I was reading through that earlier. I remember back in the day when Matt was active on here.

Found a shop right around the corner from work that can do my custom exhaust in 304 stainless. Walked in to get an estimate, and the guy at the counter used to work for me briefly at the e-recycling company. Small world.

Great writeup. Can't wait to see what it looks like when you are done!! IIRC, I think we used to banter sometimes over at CJOffroad before it went defunct.

Galvanizer is done with the frame & misc parts...came in WAY under what I was expecting...picking up Friday morning. Heat/AC arrived from JeepAir on Monday, EFI is due in from Performance Fuel Injection Wednesday or Thursday. Went ahead & ordered a timing cover from Bulltear...we'll see how they do with that before I consider ordering anything else.

Stopped by the upholsterer on the way home from work yesterday. He still has to do the rear seat (we needed to discuss how I wanted it done & I left my Laredo seat with him as a guide), but everything else is done & I think it looks awesome. He duplicated the '80 Renegade pattern (unfortunately my original upholstery had to be sacrificed) but went with a more vibrant blue. I had him do the sun visors too as well as a wrap for the grab bar and the armrest for the Tuffy console.

Dropped everything off at the new powder coater on the last day of school, hopefully will have it all back by the end of this week so that reassembly can begin (they also do ceramic coating, so they have the manifolds too). Have a potential buyer coming for the original tub...noticed a few more things about the repro tub...doesn't have the threaded holes in the firewall for the fuse block to attach, doesn't have any of the weld nuts for attaching the dash or the steering column collar, and there is no seam sealer on anything. Have some seam sealer on order and getting ready to order up some weld nuts, just want to make sure I didn't miss anything else.
