Normally no but since I know the guys well, they let me roam around.

So a couple of days ago, we bead blasted the rear shackles, pressed new bushing in and spray painted them all pretty. Now I've seemed to have lost one. Doh! We've been looking all around the warehouse, went back to the junk yard....notta. :rolleyes: Now what to do... besides continue looking that is. Lol!

I called, they said they didn't have anything that old.....'77. Or '84.

Lol! That's funny. I guess I'm imagining the parts I'm looking at. They're open from 9-2 tomorrow (Saturday) and I need to go back to find that shackle I miss placed. You're welcome to join me to look at the parts they don't have. :)

So I finally got my MTS tank and parts in today. Nice looking stuff. Only problem is, the lower fill hose is 1.5" ID and the fill tube on the tank is 2" OD. Lol! :banghead:

Waiting for parts is always annoying. Since I never found the lost shackle, we bummed one from the junk yard but had to order the bushings again. They should be in tomorrow so we can set the back down on the axle. Also waiting for engine parts from Bulltear but got impatient and got the engine put on the frame the other day. Also still need body bushings. I received some great help from Crown Automotive in ID'ing the Jeep part numbers, just need to find the parts now.

So as mentioned in another thread, we were having issues with the engine and trans combo lining up with their proper holes. I ended up pulling the C channel bracket for the trans mount and stuck it in the Iron Worker and slotted the holes. Everything lines up great now.

Since we're still waiting for parts to show up, we decided to take the junk yard gas tank skid and modify it to fit this Jeep. I have no idea what year this skid came from but my frame had no holes so holes need to be drilled. Since we're modifying it, I decided to do it my way and shrink the overall size of the skid to fit the MTS tank and get rid of excess steel. We then created "walls" to box in the skid to make it stronger. Since the bottom was .125, we used .125 for the walls as well. We're not done yet but should be done tomorrow. Cut the skid down, create walls to box it in, create new mounts....It's all good when you have a CNC plasma machine laying around. :thumbsup:

You better post more pics Bradly . . .

bkilby 02-13-2016 10:57 PM

Not much to post yet Jimmy. :D I tried to finish the skid today but was feeling a little under the weather. :eek:

Almost done though. Just need to create another attaching point and straps for the tank, then paint.

In progress pics.

Anybody know how to decipher the paint and interior codes? I'm more curious to find out what the original paint job looked like.

Thanks, but I don't see what I'm looking for.

autogatto 02-14-2016 01:41 PM

519 indicates the two tone green paint.

bkilby 02-14-2016 05:56 PM

So the darker paint on the hood is suppose to be like that?

jeepman1 02-14-2016 06:17 PM

Looking good!
 
Man, that looks nice! if you have the ability and space, might as well do it right!

No 519 indicates that it was green with the white roof. I doubt that the darker green hood (that i just noticed now from your first picture) is stock.

Oh gotcha. Thanks for the info! Is there a place on line that decodes this stuff?
