A little painting!

Headers are going to be fun to install.

More progress but nothing worth taking pics of.

Undercarriage and frame painted (all I am going to do anyway)
Rear bumper mounts drilled (Ready to install after paint)
Rear mounts under tailgate done (did not come with body lift, fab'd some up)
Headers have been cured but base coat bled through so painting again. Will look good when done.
Finished welding up body mount and floor
Installed roll bar in cj. Marked and drilled holes
1/2 done with Warn winch mount
Sanded down and primed steering stabilizer (had a ton overspray, going to install new boot and go)
Gas tank ready to go back in

Went to lowes and got hardware for roll bar, vinyl mat for gas tank liner and what I think is the rest of the paint I need.

I also have the primer for the body. Plan to have my father-in-law come by in a few days help me finish the body work. So I need to get the windshield and hood off so I can start masking everything.

No. I don't have that kind of money to spend. I ordered 3/4" coil spacers for my front end to level it back out.

Those headers look nice, and I'm glad they went on so easily.

Got my winch mount mocked up. Cut the end for my tow hook. Need to find a match for the other side.

More progress today:

Rear differential filled with oil
Skid plate painted
2nd front fender cut and almost done with "flatty" fender mod
Worked with driveshafts. Rear is in. Front is too short after yj conversion
Not sure on angles. Rear driveshaft is at a 25* and the axle is at about a 15*
Painted modified winch mount - need 2 bolts and it will be ready to install

Swept the shop floor and put up my tools. If I don't do it 1x a week it becomes a mess!

So what are you trying to acomplish by putting the old driveshaft back in the rear? Just trying to get angles?

Well the front will not fit. It gives me angles and will allow me to get exhaust and steering done

And because I wanted to.
