Painted the vent bezels and grab bar from that ugly grey to a hammered antique color. The flash in the pics doesn't do it justice, it looks so much better. It almost looks gold in the pics, but it's much closer to black.

Got the Superchips installed completely, I really like this thing...I won't get the winch mounting plate until either Tuesday or Wednesday, so that will most likely go on next weekend.

This is a great build, just love to see another Jeeper pouring love into their Vehicle.

Very nice job, I'm sure you'll keep hearing the jealousy over those gorgeous half doors.

Keep up the good work and be safe.

Finally got my extinguisher mounted, moved my Traildash to the center of the dash and my CB installed.

CB antenna gave me fits. I originally had it on the rear bumper and couldn't get an SWR below 2.2...I tried for hours. So for the heck of it, I decided to move it to the side of the tub and get a quick disconnect. Now my SWR is between .5-.8...much better!

Looking really good Bill. Is that a GPS there on the dash?

Installed my new hood latches!

I know some people had issues getting the lower nuts off, but all I did was pass a regular socket wrench handle up from the bottom and they came off in two seconds.

Nice build. I'm about to start my build thread. Bought the Jeep last Saturday and parts are starting to shop. Wheels and tires scheduled for delivery today.

And here I thought I'd see your Brake Line damage/repair from up in Ocala.

You should plan on stopping in at the Tower Shops in Davie (SE of 495 & University Dr) this Friday Night. Come meet more of the local Jeepers Bill. You might just like us

Love to check out your rig in person.

Unfortunately, the repair isn't complete, just patched together until I can do it right...and I didn't get any pics in the 100 degree heat. lol

I wish I could come out Friday Night, but I'm leaving Friday morning to head up to Orlando for the weekend. I'll definitely meet up with everyone as soon as I can though, I'd love to meet more people in the area to go out riding with.

I wish, between my brother and I we had the entire G1 collection. My brother even had the original Megatron that transformed into a gun. But, unfortunately, being kids, we played with them hard and abused them and who knows where they are now.

Love the Jeep! Kinda wish I would've gotten that color instead. What rims do you have? How much did your half doors cost?
