Any idea when the paint work should be finished?
Bushnell's Collision & Restoration. They spray Qwik Liner. The reviews seemed on par with Line-X but at a cheaper price.

I don't know what they're charging yet....That's my dad's deal. I'll let you know though.

Thanks! My dad and I have the mentality that if you can afford new, then you can definitely afford old. So why not? Ha

Yeah but your dad also has that mentality of "don't look at what you've spent until it's finished or you may never finish it"...lol

I'll have to see what Bushnell's charges.

Hahahaha. NEVER look at the receipts!

I'll ask him what they're charging him....But it should be less for you....We're getting the bottom of the tub and the inside sprayed.

Pictures!

BrettM0352 (jeep-cj.com) asked for some additional pictures of my bumpers.











From the top


From the bottom



Here are some of the cage painted.





The body is still being painted....So there isn't a whole lot going on with the build right now...But soon.

I'm using 2" lift springs from Pro Comp with their shocks, 1.5" shackle lift, and a 1" body lift.


Here's a little update.

My dad and I are picking the tub up from the painter's Saturday afternoon. It should be on the chassis sometime Sunday.

After we dropped the tub off, we took EVERYTHING out of the garage. All of the walls, ceiling, and floor were power washed. Every knick-knack was cleaned...My dad is done doing projects in this garage...So it's becoming a man cave. The big toolbox on casters is being used as a bar, a fold-away workbench was attached to the wall to keep space to a maximum, and a kegerator is coming.












Also, here are some pictures of my Mustang lamp. I had the engine rebuilt and stroked to a 302 a couple years ago. So my dad and I used a 14" wheel, the 289 crank, stock cam, glass pack muffler, and my 2 barrel carb and turned them into a lamp! Don't miss the bent (how they came out of the motor) push rods. It makes for a great conversation piece that doubles as a place to hang your coat. ha









** My apologies for the cell phone pictures...

We got the transfer case back from the shop last night. We were going to rebuild it ourselves like we did for the transmission, but to save time and frustration, we just had a shop do it.

We also had the shop install our twin stick kit.





A bunch of painted parts waiting to be installed.




Also, can anyone help me identify what these two holes are for? It's a Dana 20.

Those are the poppet ball and spring tubes. They hold the shift rails in the selected gear range. The shift rails have grooves in them that springs put pressure on little BB like balls to keep them locked in so they don't come out of gear on you. If you are in 4 hi, and it keeps popping out of that range, then they need new springs and poppet balls. Common thing to go wrong on the D20. There should be plastic plugs in those to keep them clean and filled with lube. Here is a tech page on the D20.

Unfortunately, the painter was still color-sanding and buffing the tub Friday evening. We were told that we could pick it up tonight...

I'm anxious to see it I love watching builds like this. "drab to totally fab" as my 11 year old sister says....according to her my jeep is drab on its way to fab...little brat.

Sorry about the delay...I picked the tub up last night from the painter. I was expecting a finish that had more depth and more metallic sparkle. I'm happy with it nonetheless.

I apologize for the poor quality cell phone pictures. Yesterday was a crazy day and I didn't have time to grab my camera. But I will get some nice quality pictures soon.

Thanks! I'm anxious to start putting things back together so it actually looks like a Jeep!

Update:

We have major issues with the tub....When I brought it home, I didn't look it over hardcore and nobody had been around all weekend...While I was at my parent's house last night, my dad pointed out several issues.

Many, many, many hours were put into body work to make things straight, true, and consistent. We wanted this Jeep to be something that anyone could walk up to and instantly be about to appreciate that amount of work that was put into it. Not a 5 or 10 foot vehicle.

After dropping the tub off, the owner of the shop asked my dad if he could correct a few spots that were high so that he would be happy putting his name on it. Maybe 3 hours of work. That was not a problem and my dad told him to go ahead. I guess he sanded ALL of the red primer off that we laid down and spent hours sanding to get looking good. He also went around the entire tub and laid beads of caulk on the cowl seam, the seams above the JEEP logo on the rockers, smeared it all over where the (now welded and already seam sealed) transmission tunnel meets the firewall, and all over the seams on the tailgate.

We were not consulted before any of this was done. It looks like complete shit. You can clearly see where the bead was laid down and wiped with a finger. And on top that that, they guy claims that he put 20 hours into it before paint.

Quite a bit of time was put into those seams and they were, without a doubt, ready to have sealer and paint laid on top of it.


My dad is supposed to be contacting this guy today. Who knows what will happen....I don't want to put the body on the chassis. I want to take it back and make him fix it. Or at the very least, refuse to pay what he's asking for the work.

But I will let everyone know what is to become of the situation. And in the mean time, I'll take some pictures of the work and let you guys see it.

My dad spoke with the painter last night. He understands our disappointment with the caulk and he agreed to fix it at no charge.

So good news there...

My camera took crummy pictures last night (damn fluorescent lights)...But here is the seam on the driver's side.





The tub is going back on the chassis for the final time tonight after work. So my next update should include pictures of that!

Man, thanx for this step by step restomod. I am new to this forum as I stumbled onto your thread while doing a "1971 CJ5" search on the net. It is giving me ideas for some further resto of my 1971 CJ5. I bought it new here in Phoenix back in 1970, its been to Israel and back in 1978 (great Red Sea diving to remote locations), done some work through the years but your attention-to-detail work is really good stuff.
thanx again for the super work!
cheers n greetings from Bill in Phoenix
