    Well maybe we should leave 'em all then and paint over







    Quick stop while I had an hour to kill. Finished the seam weld, tacked the floor back on. Decided I'm going to cut out where the roll bar mounts and redo that area. I'll bolt in the family bar I picked up for now, but I want a solid-to-frame bar soon. I flopped the 4Runner, and expect I'll do the same to this one.[COLOR="Silver"]

    Eric let me know if you want any help with the welding. I will have my 180 mig machine next week.

    Thanks for the kind words! Ron when I get to the 8.8 install I'm gonna want your input on how to properly do up the tabs and mounts. I'm very comfortable with a MIG but this flux core is awful (to me at least). Perhaps tack it with the flux and get it to you (or my work) to burn them on properly. Right now it's priority to get it back together and run under it's own power; Myles is moving so I'm losing the storage.

    Flux core is ok for the thicker materials but for body work and the smaller wire gas is best. I knew myles is moving and i'm starting to look for a place to rent with a bigger garage.

    Swapped the wire out to lincoln stuff, much nicer but still burns hot compared to normal MIG. At least that's how it feels to me. But we're getting there. Bodywork is going a little worse than I thought, but Twisted had some supports that saved me a few hours. Finished the floor patches for now, broke my last cutoff disc so still need to do the final patch behind the rollbar foot on the passenger side (I cut it out too).

    But for now a teaser; Mrs. Noltz bought me some new shoes...

    Doesn't look like much, but the patch work is done for the floors (at least for this year... we'll see). Seam sealer has been purchased and will be put down tomorrow, let it dry for a few days before putting something down on the floor. The A-pillars will get some skinwork and get some reinforcement from behind. Picked up my 2x4 box and 1x2 box for the rear-most and rear-seat body mount locations - both were cut out due to rust. Nice solid box to go in, weld a few nuts in.

    Mocked it up a little, and got some more steel to weld in for the floor and rear body mounts. Too much rain today to do anything.





    Jacked it up to get the correct ride height, and rolled a tire in front. Wicked MSPaint skillz to the rear. They are to scale, so I'm gonna have to open up that wheel well quite a bit

    I'd like to, yes. For now I'll be adding a spreader to the rear and something for a header across teh front with legs down to the floor. Frame tie-in's are a must... I flopped my 4Runner :S

    Few more days in, but it started raining before I got to pictures.





    Floor work is complete for me to bolt it down with the Daystar 1" body mount/lift kit. I wanted it on the chassis for fitting doors and such anyway. Sides still need a little more work. Wire brushed the firewall and hit it with tremclad so it's nice and clean. Same inside the tub. Time is getting tight so a lot of refurbishing will have to be skipped and just put the pieces back in. Dash is swapped over, harness layed in but not hooked up. Realized my blower motor doesn't fit the hole in this tub. Also realized this tub came from a standard transmission (holes were not drilled for block-off plate), and it was a carb'd Jeep as there's no mounting perches for the ECU and MAP sensor. Later 2 are easily fixed, the motor I'll need a grinding wheel to open it up. Need a drivers fender to put it back together quickly... no time to make tube fenders right now. Steering column is back in, shaft hooked up, realized I forgot the two bottom bolts for the steering box bracket. Tried to turn the wheel and the box started twisting. More hardware I'm missing, haha. Wish I had more time to complete it but it's a rush-rush thing to get it moving... so at least I'll get to drive it again.

    K lemme know.. I'm going with tube eventually but I need to get another fender quickly to reassemble it.

    Found a 4.10 front axle, 2.5 hours away but it's pretty complete. So axle upgrade will be nice!

    More progress today...

    Engine wiring hooked back up, battery tray installed


    Steering shaft reinstalled and fastened, PS res back in, hooked up the rad hoses. Forgot to bring extra rubber for the trans cooler lines though.


    Tossed the windshield on so I can see where the roll bar needs to mount. The floor has none of the original bar holes in it. It's a temporary measure until I get the tie-in's done (or a full cage)


    Ya, I swapped on proper tires to see how much cutting I'll need to do in the rear. Not too bad. I'm curious about moving the rear axle back a little though. If anyone reading knows what cherokee rear leaf will give 4" lift and push the axle back the 4" advertised, I'd love to know. I think it's 44044 springs that are advertised as 2" lift springs for Cherokee, but they result in 4" for YJ's.


    Still to do;
    Find and install DS fender
    Brake lines front to back
    Finish rocker-guard the floor
    Open the rear wheel well up
    Finish electrical and fire it up (cranks but I don't try to start it)
    Replace skid with TJ unit (mines rusty, TJ's are flatter)
    Install front drive shaft
    Fish 4'th steering box bolt/nut into position. The in-frame bolt broke free and walked away.
    Windshield hinges (Alex, I'll call you tomorrow)
    Swap 4Runner seats in
    Figure out trans linkage
    Parking brake (F8.8 in near future = not putting D35's back in)
    Bolt down roll bar.

    Dash is back on. Need to grind out the blower motor hole. Older tub = smaller blower motor hole.
