That's sweet work, really jealous of your ability to pick up cool old jeeps, they're pretty rare around NZ. Just curious, are you worried about cooling with no intercooler? Td42s are known as kettles here and Aus since they like to boil

Wow, thatís a nice creation you have there. I was wondering what you were going to do with that roll bar, until you welded in the gussets. What ever happened with that digital tachometer? Did you ever install and use it? Would you recommend it? What happened to that center console that was in that red YJ you parted out? It looked like it was in pretty nice shape. Good job on the hardtop, it came out looking nice, I like how you squared it off, giving it an OEM look. Your fenders turned out nice too, they are flat fenders, but still have round lines that fit into the CJ's rounded front end lines. Nice truck!

thanks man

i actually lost the display from the tach. and just reordered new one last week
so idk if its any good.
center console was too wide to fit between seats. and went away with the jeep.
im using Honda accord coupe seats and they are wider than stock.
i have plan on building center console and fit my shifters in there.

still lot of work to finish the small things .but its drivable and even got inspection sticker

over the weekend i converted my leaky power steering lines to JIC hoses

150$ for 2 hoses and 55$ for fittings LOL

fixed power steering reservoir nipple (solder broke i didnt have steel fitting to weld in at the time. so i brazed brass fitting and failed )










and fucked up the fan already
i guess 1/4" is too close to the radiator
