    Wife says I'll never finish

    As the title says, wife was sick of looking at my 91yj and told me to scrap it. I told her i could have it on the road by May 24! So she said ya right, you never finish anything you start around here, thats when the arguement started. Next Day i moved my jeep to my father inlaws who has givin me his shop till May. Bonus heat and a roof. So the challange is on.
    My avitor shows what it looks like after 2.5yrs sitting in my driveway all covered up.
    Heres what I got 91yj, have put in a 4" lift, rebulit motor, as old one had windows in the block, replaced almost the whole front steering and what i haven't will get done. Just bought a tub from r.d.a.
    what are my plans beside finish it before may????????????????
    Will post pix as i go and of some of the stuff i have already done.
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    I'm not sure you're allowed to post your gold member on here

    Post dates for Build parties well in advance. Some guys can only drop by for a morning or afternoon during weekends (Like me) but would be happy to lend skilled hands. Get a list together.

    For the moment, get your new tub prepped. If you're getting it line-x, arrange it now. If painting, get the underside and firewall done now before you put it back on the frame.
