|spyder05||I love that it's a full blown buggy but still has the lines of a TJ. Keep up the good work.|

|mobil1syn||why are you weighing it?|
|08-28-2015 09:24 PM|
So close to paint!
MtnYota is helping me accurtly weigh the chassis. I only have one scale, so I have to weigh each end and then put it into a calculator to get the accurate weight.
Anyone want to guess the weight? So far I'm thinking a little heavier than I wanted

Drill press and rivnuts make quick work of solidly mounting the floor.

Well, one more day and I think I'll be painting.
I got the cowl pieces welded up. A few quick free hand passes.
Then a quick hit with the 4.2HP 7" Grinder, and they are done.
Windshield is done. I made it so that it is all on one flat plane.
Added an additional bar to better support the B Pillar
The Poofter also has rear titties! I mocked up the MTX Wake Board Tower Speakers. I bought these years ago before Crawler Tunes had their stuff for sale. Also, in this pic you can see the seat belt retainer loops to hold the shoulder belts in place. You can barely see them, but they are mid way up the V Bars behind the seat.

I hope to be painting this weekend...

|MtnYota||I hereby change the name of this build to "--80 Poofter--"|

|MichaelMaxim||What seats are you running in the 80 Proofer?|

^ Who doesn't enjoy a good dance party while wheeling
It's getting really close to paint.
This go around I wanted plenty of tie down points. Lots of holes later the rear is done.
Also I got started laying out the wires and welding on the zip tie tabs I got from Ruff Stuff. I placed them every three inches. I used a piece of 1" Square tubing to make sure they were all aligned. Should be pretty clean when all said and done. I still need to get a large fire wall boot to replace the one on the drivers firewall. I'll browse Summit for that.

looking good. making progress...
my biggest issue with nutserts is when they start to spin....but if you drill the hole just smaller than the desired sized and hammer them in they tend to not spin. its all in setup

Here's where I'm at heading into the weekend.
I got all the final parts for my steering, including a 20" dual pass cooler (Derale 13262) Also got a bag of new lug nuts.
Front Cross Member/ Engine Skid Mount is in.
Cowl is getting there. Both sides are now fully tacked into place
The sides of the Tunnel Cover are now removable.

|GRMhick||See this Max? This is you having fun in your jeep. Do you know what will happen if you don't get driving in 3 weeks? You will have to ride with Jeff... riding uncomfortably close to Jeff. No one wants to be uncomfortably close to Jeff, so get your jeep done.|
|08-13-2015 02:42 PM|
|MtnYota||3 weeks and counting|

|MichaelMaxim||Your over-enthusiasm for nutserts disturbs me to no end as I just fought with six of them on my rig... F that! lol I can't imagine the headaches with that many.|

|Diablo169||^Will do, that is always a nice local maiden voyage. Hopefully I can get her smogged. Last time Hollister wouldn't let me in because I didn't have a current sticker|

|vova||Looks like it's coming along nicely! Let me know when if you do a Hollister shakedown run.|
