I'm guessing that's in chromabase.. I wonder the cost in nason.. and then maybe adding the right pearl to give it a not so nason look lol.. might be an option

Back at the shop. I had two timing chain covers in the beginning. Put the first on and accidently shot the crank key behind the timing cover. So I took it off and back on using the second basket. Got the vibration damper on. And then noticed I forgot to put the oil sling in. So now I'm taking it apart and putting a third gasket in. An $11.23 mistake.

So after days of trying to get it to start I finally got it started... this is my first time having to set up a distributor and Tue manual said have the rotor pointing towards the number one spark plug when seated.. finally found in a forum that I should seat it with the rotor slightly past the number one plug so I went with that and it started right up and sounds great..

Now I'm off to finishmaster to get trim black to finish up the trim pieces...buying new battery terminals, probably getting a new top from 4 wheel parts, and getting back and getting it all on

Sorry I haven't updated this thread in a while.. I'm having trouble setting the distributor to get the timing right and also there is a knock after warm-up coming from where the tranny joins the motor.. I can only hear it in neutral with the clutch engaged and disengaged and it goes away when I put it in gear and start going .. hopefully I cam fix it soon

Awesome Jeep man! I am totally jealous. I wish I had the know-how to do half of that. I don't even know where you guys learn this stuff!
