    been a busy boy settling into the new house and getting ma double car garage jeep ready and the wife gave me a free pass this weekend, heeeeerow, maybe ill make some progress.

    Thanks everyone for the awesome feedback, I smiled the entire time catching up on this post.

    Bam Bam, you asked for dash pics, here they are, the best part is, that my original glove box had a CJ5 emblem that nobody has ever seen before so i managed to transfer it onto the new one, LOL about 1 of 5 things still original on it.




    And, heres a quick mockup of a pinup girl i was thinking about running on the hood or the side, like a bomber. If i have the cash at some point, id actually like to vinyl wrap the whole thing to look like a bomber, rivets and all

    LOL thats because of A) Corona and B) the zip ties used to keep them on ready for transport

    Where's the pin-up girl??!? That's the best part!
    Bill! Things are awesome, ive totally taken a new mental inventory of everything after getting settled into the new place and starting up again this weekend on it. The pinup girl is a definite one way or another, but i just wanna get it running, im so tired of doing things twice with it, just had to rip out the heater to weld in some nuts for the fenders (the philipinos forgot to I guess).

    Hows your CJ? Any plans for it this summer or just running it. Ahh running jeeps, so overated

    Thanks Phreak, always welcome to come by and kick the tires.

    Theme is easy, doing the work is the tough part. Being a graphic designer i see how it should look in the end, its the mechanical part i struggle with

    Once i have it running i get more serious about the details for sure, im also toying with the idea of big bomber shark teeth, and just "lucy" where it would have said Jeep, in a 40's font. Ive also got 5.62 ammo boxes for rear speaker boxes to go on the wheel wells

    Hey Chris!

    Hope to run this year. Everything is OK to go, but I should:
    Replace pilot bushing on tranny
    Figure out where all the oil is coming from
    Figure out where all the rad juice is coming from
    Polish up the wide tracks and put them in
    Slap on the new to me pizza cutter military tires
    MC2100 install

    But I have:
    Retrofitted to the paddle door closing system
    Put on the bright white half doors
    Put the new to me yj soft top on
    Taken that fugly light bar I got from Mike off
    Sat on my ass for most of the winter.

    All's good! See ya soon on the trails,
    -Bill
