Twelve pages might seem like a lot, but this thread is 2 1/2 years old. I think it shows that I am a slacker.

For the latch issues that you were wondering about on the rear wheel wells. Check out McMaster-Carr. www.mcmaster.com. They have all kinds of industrial latches an bolts and everything else that you can think of. I personally use them for all of my "specialty" bolts. They even have military grade 9 available. I got the cantilever latch that I used on my spare tire carrier there as well.

Yea...I am sure McMaster will have something. I get a fair amount of stuff there for home and work.

Nothing too exciting tonight. I started running brake lines. My LED back up lights came in too.

I went into the garage and it was raining, it started getting a little smoky so I opened the door and there was an inch of snow. Spring can show up any time.

Pics of my new shop. 40' x 80'. I have been building my Jeep for almost 3 years in 16' x 20' shed. It will be so nice to have room finally. Just wish I would have had this when I started my build. Oh...it comes with a house and another 2 car garage. It will be a couple months before we close because we don't want to move in crappy weather.

Also, I will be placing my final order from Ballistic Fabrication Monday or Tuesday. Finally getting my air shocks, some Ballistic Joints, and a couple other parts.
Ha haha. Lol. That's awesome. When I started reading your thread I was like "hey look at this poor guy crammed into that little garage, just like me"!
Good for you. Lol.

I've never missed it. My Jeep has missed a couple though. Unless something drastic happens the Jeep will be done. A couple more weeks we will be settled in the new house and I can get back to work on the Jeep.

Actually I was in Atlanta last week. Does that get me a little slack? I'm getting on it. Bantam is coming fast.

Spent the evening in the shop...working on my son's suzaphone. He is marching in a parade in Disney next week and wanted his suzaphone redone. Pain in the ass. There were several layers of paint including one layer of latex house paint. Got it all down to the gel coat and spot puttied a few nicks and put a later of filler on the bell. Hopefully I can finish it tomorrow and maybe do some work on the Jeep.

Finally spent a couple hours in the shop. I even worked on the Jeep. I pulled the 9 in and cut off part of the truss and the old crappy upper link mounts. Hopefully tomorrow I can get the new Ballistic fab mounts burned in.

Finished cleaning up the truss and burned in the base for the upper link mounts. Also cut off the old rubber bushings from the upper links and burned in the new ballistic joints.

I'm glad I am back at it too. 35 days till Bantam Festival and lots to finish up.

Got the upper link mounts lined up and burned in tonight. A little clean up and some paint and the axle can go back in the Jeep.

Spent saturday doing training and trail maintenance at the Bantam festival. Rode around in a crazy 2A on 42's. Didn't get too much done this weekend but at least got the 9 in finished up, painted, and back under the Jeep.

Yep, That is Jayme Foxx.

In case anyone is paying attention still, got another brake line done last night and the PS fender trimmed around the shock hoop and shock and mounted. The 9 is back under the Jeep too.

What, no one knows who Jayme Foxx is? Or even noticed that I Photoshopped the pic? She is the host of the Zippo Encore tour and came to see us at work with Jerrod Neiman.

Oh well, back to the Jeep. Brake lines are done. PS fender trimmed to clear the shocks and hoop and mounted.

Got the other fender trimmed and mounted and modified my shock tower brace so I can fit a radiator hose.
