Been busy - frame has been sanded, rust removed, cleaned and painted, new brake lines are in fuel filter has been replaced, gas tank has been modified.

I found a crack at the base of the header so I am replacing that this week.

The interior is at the upholsterer, the dash has all been painted and the gauges have been changed.

I have every thing back from paint except the tub which should be here by the weekend. I am so excited to start reassembly.

Here are some pics.

Your project is coming along nicely! Now, does your daughter help? I know with my jeep, I had more than a few "daughterly volunteers", mainly as "tool girls." But once you are under the jeep, you get comfortable and it gets to be a "pain in the butt" to get up again. Besides they dream about driving it, so they don't mind helping.

I wish you two the best.

Take care,

Ghugi, you and your father are really doing some good quality work. I hope you are proud of that as I have no doubt your father is proud of you. I personally can't wait to teach my son his way around a wrench and he won't know it for a long time, but if he helps with the Jeep, it is his when the time comes.

Keep the great pictures coming.

Oh man... your jeep looks great! I have put my build on hold until I have the funds to paint the tub. Boy did you just encourage me to save up more. I can't wait to see your jeep finished.

Take care,

nice job, my son and I are a little older(he's 25 and I'm 60), but doing something similar but not as elaboate, ie not taking the tub off. We did have to fix the frame though and that has been a pain. I have a 2 car garage that is now taken over with a 95 yj in various states of repair. So far we have fixed the frame and replaced the rear driver side leaf spring, shocks and drum brakes and will soon be doing the passanger side. Although we are a littler older we are having a great time with this project and I think my son is doing most of the work and I am in a more supervisory/advisory position.

ps. My wife will be very happy when we are done also so she can get her jag back in the garage!

Help -

I need someone to take a couple of pics for me. All I need is to see how the front fender braces are connected to both the firewall and the fender. I have 7 braces and thought I would remember how they were positioned. Took pictures of everything else, just not this.

Any pics u can post would be great!!!

Photos of fender support brackets...

As requested... Your build is coming along great. I know what you mean about figuring these braces out. It was years since I had removed them to when I reinstalled them. These photos kept me sane.

Take care,
