Got a little more done, expanded the home-built window frame I had, also fixed to the corners so they look a bit better
Although welded to a plattgärn in the middle to receive the split window look :)



works fine


The brackets and homemade thumbscrews


Think it will look totally okay with some color :) Then it's not the appearance that is important in the woods :grinpimp:

The window frame? : P

Here's a pic


I have cut away a little more of Felt frame, I have also narrowed the tank protection so it fits between frame so the gas tank comes up a bit


The rear axle is almost done : )


Welded some mounts for the headlights




Built my own swedish interpretation of the Willy's blackout lights, I'm happy with it :D


Also built radiator mounts, mounts for the grill in the frame. Now it starts to resemble the jeep again :)



Bonus picture that I threw together in Photoshop, "Put the jeep in the woods and threw a little color on it" So you get the feeling of how it should be

Your windshield frame looks great. In case I missed it, will you have to get the glass custom cut?

Dragged the jeep out in the sun last week

Project cars as far as the eye can reach :D


Welded some holes that some one hade made earlyer with a blunt axe or something


One hole filled in, the other I'm using for a intake pipe, so I can have the airfilter under the dashboard.


Some zinkspray on it before the rustprimer
