Those look sweet. Where are you getting them through?

Definitely not cheap. Took three days of putting them in my cart & the cart expiring before I finally pulled the trigger. I'm only doing this one time, so...

Last bit of mock up & tearing it back down. Holes for the passenger side windshield hinge were out of whack. Should have the manifolds back from ceramic coating next week so I can finish assembling the 360.

Final dash mock up with the color (Ford Nitrous Blue) before it goes out for the real paint job. Switching gears back to final engine assembly...manifolds should be back from the ceramic coater shortly.

Picked up the last few powder coated parts & the ceramic coated manifolds from the powder coater, so I'll be completing the engine assembly soon. Traded in the older Grand Cherokee that I was driving to knock a few bucks off of my wife's new 2019 Ocean Blue Metallic JLU Sahara that she ordered back at the end of September (she's already got a stack of aftermarket parts for me to install). Ordered up the new Rocky Road Outfitters rock sliders & BDS springs for the CJ-7 so I can get started on it while the Scrambler is in a holding pattern for body work & paint. Also got some news that I'm not allowed to fully disclose that will be taking us back to St. Croix at the end of January...let's just say that it involves TV cameras and life in the Caribbean

Playing catch up on the posting: Body & Paint guy came by Saturday to test fit the front clip prior to finalizing the repairs & painting the grill (waiting on the weather to warm up a bit to paint the grill & dash). He noticed some rot starting to form in the double layered portion of the fenders, so I ordered replacement panels for him to weld on & he replaced one of the fender bolt captured nuts on the grill as well as the body mount captured nut on the grill (I used a Chevy truck captured nut). April should be an active month...

A little photo worthy progress this week. Picked up the rear seat from the upholsterer this week. It's a Bestop Trailmax II that came with the Jeep with the headrests deleted...I bought a new one for everyday use. I gave him the Laredo seat out of my '86 CJ-7 as a guide. It was finally warm enough this weekend for some painting, so the grill & dash are done so that I can complete those sub-assemblies. In other news, we did a sneak preview showing for a buyer that our realtor had on deck ahead of listing our house and they bought it!! Now I really need to get moving on this build.

Way behind on updates, so I'll do a quick catch-up & several photo only posts. We've been on St. Croix for 2 months now (flew down July 6) & the Scrambler arrived about a month ago (I went back to OH a couple of weeks ago to tend to the CJ-7 & finish emptying out the outbuilding...the new owners were gracious enough to allow me extra time given the logistics of the move). We sold the OH house off of a sneak-preview showing back in April before it was on the market & closed mid-May a couple of days before the first two containers were loaded (one with household stuff, the other with my tractor, utility trailer & wife's JLU). Our episode of HGTV's Caribbean Life aired this past Sunday night (Season 17, Episode 14).

It was a scramble (pun not intended) getting the Scrambler together to get loaded into the third container (along with my Grand Cherokee & parts & tools from the outbuilding) at the end of June...I was bolting parts on it as the flatbed driver was pulling in to take it. I had just gotten the mounted & balanced wheels & tires back the night before as well as several of the parts from the painter. Didn't get as much done as I had hoped & some of the parts ended up getting left behind (they're in storage, working on getting them shipped down now). Without further adieu, the photos:
