The rebuild of my 93 yj

So i was looking through all the pictures of the project an decided i should make a build page so everyone can see the progress that ive made. It all started last Aug. when i bought the 93 4cyl 5spd as a replacement vehicle for the truck i had sold. Well the jeep wasn't in as good as shape as i thought it was once i got it home an all cleaned out i noticed that the floor had been patched in with brass, alum. an stainless. After seeing that i set out to find a donor jeep that i would be able to get the tub from along with other parts that i thought i might need.

here is the 93 after it was all cleaned up


an here is the 94 i found for the donor for a good deal with a very bad frame


an the tear down of the 94 began...

surprise





down to the rotted frame.....





now onto the table for this body....

also needing repair but not visible is the a pillar that was all done along with the drivers side floor pan

Then came the time to make all my templates for all the patches that had to be made then over to the shear an brake the test fit an fire up the welder...




Heres where i made a mistake i never took any pictures off the corner pieces that i made an the rear center piece i bought off line so that saved time on fabricating one up. After all the filler went in i spent 4 classes getting it final sanded an cleaned to go into the paint booth

The jeep was done as a project while i was in college an the rest of the pieces that are left to be painted will go to the school an ill paint them to match the rest of the body.

An a tip for anyone thinking of taking your jeep aprat this far now is the time to change the color if you want to its so much easier when its completely disasembled. I paitned this using PPG primer sealer an used their Envirobase paint line an clear coat. Feel free to ask any questions ill try my best to answer them. Thanks for Viewing my build so far the body is currently in my garage on a trailer as i reassemble it, ill try to get pics of my current progress later today.

At the opposite end. Wollet rd near cr 16. Almost ready to start putting things back on the frame. Been way too long without the jeep. Nice weather and I'm stuck in a car.

They always seem to take longer. And this time of year you just want to put the top down and drive.
