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.
Check "YJ V6 Conversion Swap" if you want to see my "frame up" restoration that anyone can do.
Check "WWII Willy's restoration and usage..." if you want to see THE ORIGINAL JEEP IN ACTION.
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.
Great job!!! I have an 88 YJ that I am hoping to the same with, I have a 4 yr. old son that will not leave my side when I have the tool cart out. I just hope he continues this path, If he does it will be his on his 16th birthday. And if he dosent i will find an old clunker fo him..JK Good luck and great Jeep.
great build. mine has been a slow project since i got it. PO left me quite a few issues. wish i had the cash to tackle everything at once. how much will you be wheeling it. really looking forward to see the progress.
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!
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.
