Very cool, you sure you don't want a expenses paid trip to Quincy, Florida. Just a days worth of welding and I promise to feed you good. And maybe even show you some cool junk.

Looks good so far!
Just curious, you are going to be using some sort of isolation/vibration bushing under the transmission tail housing stand off correct?
I only ask since I see you are using rubber isolators at the engine mounts.
Again, looking good

Thanks. I haven't decided what I'm going to do about that. I did a lot of work to the skid plate to lower the trans, so I don't want to put something under it that raise it much. One idea I have, is to mount the trans solid to the skid plate, and put rubber donut isolators at each skid plate mounting point, of which there are six.

Working for a living is overrated. You should give it up.

They take 95% of your earnings in taxes and now they are gonna give you health care so what's the point!

Gonna do Old Town the end of March, a friend of mine from Illinios is taking his family to Disney and we are gonna go down and meet them. We may go to Suncoast on Friday you oughta come up, I'll buy you dinner.

Well, I decided to say goodbye to the square eyes. I've always liked the round headlights over the squares. To me, they represent the classic, iconic Jeep look. Today, I picked up a CJ7 grill and CJ7 fenders. The seller had a hood to complete the conversion, but it was in too bad a shape. These pieces have a fair amount of surface rust, but they are straight and solid. After sandblasting, these parts will look much nicer.
As you can see in the pic, I'm in need of a headlight bucket(hint, hint).

Now your talking. There was supposedly a good hood in my area for sale cheap, I will try to track it down next week and see if it can be had right, then we will have to figure out how to get it to you. I may also be able to find something on the headlight bucket, you might check to see if it is a common GM/Ford piece like so many other CJ parts.

Hey, thanks man! The guy I bought these parts from had a hood for sale, but it had rust holes on it. You're way up there in the panhandle. I'm hoping to find one a little closer to home.

I've made more progress this weekend. I got the CJ7 fenders and grill back from the sandblaster's. They did a great job removing all of the rust and paint. I sprayed them with 2 coats of 2 part epoxy primer, followed by 2 coats of high build primer. Look at the before shot above, and compare with this one.

I also located and purchased a CJ7 hood. It's in rough shape, but fixable. It's currently at the blaster's, and it should be ready to pick up tomorrow. It will receive the same priming treatment tomorrow night.
Also, today I just won an ebay auction on a set of half doors. They appear to be in awesome, rust free condition, plus they come with side view mirrors, which is one less thing I have to buy.

Dave, I hate to ask but I will, do you still have the info on the place that you were gonna have dip your frame. I boxed a 48 Chevy frame that I think I want to have dipped and treated. Did you ever get a quote and what did it include, ie dipped, treated, coated, etc.

Thanks, Kevin

I contacted them, and they said they only deal with commercial accounts, not individuals. I'm going to spray my frame with an industrial strength, 2 part epoxy primer that is typically used on offshore oil drilling platforms. I purchased a couple of cans of Eastwood's Internal Frame Coating, to take care of the insides of the frame rails. When I get done with it, that frame will remain rust-free for the next 50 years, at least!
Here's a pic of the CJ-7 front end pieces. You can see some holes here and there on the hood from rust rot. I'm going to start welding/patching the holes this weekend.

Looking good, I went and looked at that CJ stash I was talking about last week, picked up a few things, nothing big. There was a hood but it had issues and since we are so far apart I let it stay there. Still looking for a headlight bucket but nothing yet.

Sounds like you got your frame figured out, but I was move asking for the 48 I'm involved in. Depending on what they call commercial, we should qualify. Havana Hotrods. All i can do is ask and all they can do is say NO.

Today, I sprayed the frame with 2 coats of epoxy primer, followed by 2 coats of high build primer. After I smooth out the imperfections, later this week I'll shoot the frame with a Nissan color called Structural Grey Metallic, in Nason single stage.

After a week of evenings and most of this weekend, the frame is finally ready for a couple coats of paint. All it needs is a final wipe down. I added two pieces of steel to the frame. I added the crossmember for the anti-wrap ladder bar, and I cut out the stock sheet metal rear bumper mount, and replaced it with a piece of 4" x 1.5" rectangular steel, with threaded inserts for mounting the bumper. I'm going to be hanging a swing-out spare tire mount with a 100 lb. wheel/tire combo, so I felt it needed beefing up. Back to the garage to lay down the paint!

One page back, I show a pic of the anti-wrap ladder bar and the crossmember. In the above pic, you can see the brackets tack welded to the rear axle. No pic of the whole setup in place yet. I need to wait until the Jeep is fully assembled, and sitting at ride height.

I de-burred the shackle plates, and rattle canned a coat of satin black on them and the leaf springs. Bolted them up to the frame for the final time. I should be getting the finished front axle back from the axle shop this week. I would have gotten it back last week, but the knucklehead forgot to order the Detroit Locker.



I've decided to hold off on rebuilding the rear axle until near the end of the build, and instead, focus on the engine build as the next order of business. As previously stated, I've chosen Dan at Performance Only to take care of the engine work.

Kevin and Rick, thanks!!

I'm looking forward to working with my friend Dan on the engine. That will probably begin sometime in June, hopefully.
In the meantime, to keep me busy, I've ordered an RCI 15 gallon aluminum fuel cell. Later this week, I'll fab a combination skid plate/mount for it, make it out of steel diamond plate for strength, and run a length of #8 braided line to the front.

I got the front axle back from the shop. It's a hell of a lot heavier now than when I dropped it off to them! They did a complete rebuild, and threw in Superior axles, a Detroit Locker, and Spicer 4.55 gears.
I gave it a coat of Hammerite black paint, but I laid it on a little heavy on the axle tubes and created some drips. I'm going to sand them out and touch it up.
I made the frame a roller again. The front axle and suspension are on for good this time.



The fuel cell mount/skid plate is almost finished. I just need to weld on some tabs. I'm going to add 4 rivet nuts to the crossmember, so I can bolt down the front of the skid plate. The back of the skid plate is attached to the frame with a pair of 1/2-13 bolts.

Thanks, Rick. There is actually a good 3/8" of clearance between the top of the leafs and the bottom of my makeshift tie rod. When the frame and suspension sees the full weight of the body, drivetrain, etc., the leafs will flatten, and that clearance will increase.

Very nice, are you going to be able to drop the tank without removing the tub, just a thought if you haven't considered it. Again, I sure your're ahead of it but make sure you have full travel up and down on the draglink clearance.

Great work.

Very nice, are you going to be able to drop the tank without removing the tub, just a thought if you haven't considered it. Again, I sure your're ahead of it but make sure you have full travel up and down on the draglink clearance.

Great work.



Thanks. Yep, already thought about it, and yes, the tank can be dropped.
