Felt like bumping this thread to remind myself to work on it.
It's been two years since i've picked up a wrench to tinker with it, and i'm getting itchy thinking about it, so this is my proposed to-do list:

Cut out the floor (done)
Re-do the firewall again, needs to be better and I hate the way I did it the first time.
Fix the cut to shit fenders, making them one piece again instead of a two piece flip-forward hotrod setup

New gas tank (CJ5 under-floor rear tank)
New/used spriing pack, probably one I build from existing leafs and some new leafs
Alongside this, some kind of new rear setup to control the wrap from SOA. I'm considering radius arms, but that's later on when i build a custom frame.
Re-wire the gauges. Only half of em work..

And a solid two years later I'm sceeping right along. After a lengthy, unhealthy relationship, I'm now back to doing things that make me happy. Like this gorgeous god damn piece of shit that's been the garage catch all for three years.

Today I began the process of stripping bondo and undercoating off. It's like the PO watched an episode of hot rod TV and thought, damn that entire panel needs a layer of bondo, but 1/4" thick. The metal underneath is surprisingly solid. I've been using the stripper found at HD, Jasco I think. Works pretty well.

The back corners are trashed per usual as well, I pulled the diamond plate off and the back passengers corner is completely destroyed. Gonna get the whole body to bare steel before fall and hopefully I can spend the fall and winter welding panels on it.

Will figure out pics shortly

I realize now that all of my build pics are gone from the photobucket mishap. Spectacular.

Here is the body today, surprisingly solid. I expected so much more rust..
Guys I can't figure out imgur so here's the public album?

Glad you cut out that unhealthy relationship! Get back to work on this thing.
