Nice thing with Speed hut is you can completely customize the gauge sets however you want. Color, dial, font, etc. I have a set of their gauges in my 71 Charger and they are super nice.


i have the gauges already except the speedo
the speedo will be speedhut GPS 4" Mph/Rpm combo










i decided to take easy road out and not build the center console at this time



















noticed pretty big leak from the tranny
it had piece of cardboard under neath and i couldnt see it till now
gotta take the pan down and see whats up

Paint

gotta get more paint .
still have to do hard top half and full doors

i first sprayed tub hood fenders
it came out great for being sprayed outside , love the new gun, it lays down the paint nicely

but i fucked up big time
spraying the bed, windshield frame and tailgate.

i run out of daylight by the time i sprayed the bed

moving onto windshield , knowing there is lot of curves i turned down the gun,so it spray less paint .
well i turned the knob wrong way and it was dumping the paint out .
by the time i realized, paint was running down everywhere

most likely ill have to respray the whole truck but for now ill put it together and spray it as whole

thanks man, i like it too
i ordered another gallon of paint .ill spray the whole jeep again once is assembled

glued the windshield glass in
decided to go with YJ style frame and glass , i hate those CJ gaskets you have to force the window in
ran 2 v shaped beads one in channel one on the rubber gasket
set the window down , centered it ,ran another bead of glue in the gap between glass and frame and set decorative gasket in
i have few spots where the glue came out a little ,its tedious process not to get the glue everywhere
