UPDATE!

The body is on the chassis!

We spent Saturday and Sunday getting the interior put together and getting the wire harness installed.

Factory steps that I had chrome plated. The black rock sliders are going to be refinished and painted body color.









We added this small lock boxes under the front seats.

We eventually had about eight people show up....So we didn't have any issues lifting it and placing it on the chassis. Ha

The stereo will be installed some other time. Getting the essential peices assembled and getting it driving is our primary objective.

UPDATE:

The front clip is getting picking up this evening from the painter. Also, I got the headers back from getting ceramic coated. They look AWESOME! They almost have a chrome look to them.

I have some sand blasting to do after work, and later on this evening, my dad and I are going to start painting several miscellaneous parts (heater box, headlight buckets, etc)


I'll be updating Monday morning with pictures.... Stay tuned.

Update:

Painting was put off until tomorrow. Instead, we assembled the front clip. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

where did you get the battery studs for the feed-throughs? what a great idea to hide the battery and clean up the engine compartment.
what are you doing on the other side for the heater?
will you ever find a top that will clear that interesting roll cage?
super mechanical creativity, love the ideas.

cheers,

Bill

The firewall battery terminals can be found on Summit's and Jeg's websites. I'll post a link tomorrow when I'm at work.

We're going to use the original heaterbox but everything is currently being restored. i.e. refinished surfaces, paint, new ducts, etc.

We don't intend on having much of a top....We have a bikini too. We also plan on having another top made that will stretch from the windshield to the rear hoop on the rollcage.

These appear to be the same terminals that I have.

Cheers.

Hey dude...check out Jeep Shade Tops, Wrangler Products | SpiderWebShade.com

They've redone their products a bit...but I have one of their old SW1's on my Jeep and LOVE it. It protects you from the sun (so no massive sunburns on long drives and no dying from the sun's rays cooking you while stuck at a redlight or in slow traffic) while still giving you that open air feeling that you don't get with solid tops. Only drawback is it's not waterproof...but my top goes right over it, so that's no big deal.

Man, thanx for the link to the feed thru posts. i see you have an optima red top in place. do you mind telling me the part number for your battery of choice? its a little confusing trying to get size for my 71 CJ5 with a 231 and i am sure it would be the same as yours.
thanx so much for your super build thread and your consideration to all our questions.

cheers,

Bill

Stumbled across this when I first joined the forum and it looks like you've made a ton of progress. I just had to subscribe now so I can see what the finished product looks like. Keep up the good work and keep those pictures rolling in.

I'm new to WF and just found this thread. Quite an ambitious project, but it's looking pretty awesome! That primer pattern reminds me of a desert camo. Keep it up!
