1976 J-10 HONCHO frankenstein build

THIS BUILD STARTED 2.5 TO 3 YEARS AGO

I REFURBISHED A 1988 WAGONEER FIRST ABOUT 4/5 YEARS AGO

...AND THAT SET ME ON FIRE FOR A J10

I AM STARTING THIS BUILD THREAD LATE,...(was too lazy too investigate how to post )

I WILL TRY TO POST PROGRESSION IN ORDER
UNTIL I CAN CATCH UP TO CURRENT PROGRESS

I appreciate the folks who make this site possible
and I appreciate the kind people on here,....
the thing that makes this world a better place....dave in NC

I call this a Frankenstein build because it is such a mixture of parts

that keeps in tradition with these FSJ's since they had a mixture of parts from several car makers...

first time trying to link a photo,......

the first photo is of what I stated with,.....

a truck from Oregon, no rot, just specks of rust all over

surface rust,....interiror had been gutted when I got it,

even tho no body rot, since it was in a wet climate, even the dash frame had

too much rust to use,.....so I got another dash frame,....

also, the wet climate saved the rubber on the vent windows,....

I cleaned them and replaced felt in the channel,.....a friend who saw them on the truck recently.....said, "if I did not know you, I would never believe they are the original seals",...they are like new, supple, etc....

all in all the truck looked like it had been used on a farm for 40+ years and lived a hard life, but that is what is was made for....now in retirement,...it gets the royal treatment and then to the rest home,...my garage.

photo link:

I could not wait to get the razor grille off,....

so I blacked out the front,.....

sanded and painted the WARN bumper

added some fake stainless steel pie tins that I made,....

and a tired rhino.....

also found a used round jeep badge for the rhino
and stripped and re-lettered it,....

drove it a week or so, then took it all apart down to frame for media blasting...

after media blasting

I used eastwoods "AFTERBLAST" it takes away the light orange surface rust that appears right after blasting,....

I put it in a spray bottle, then just blotted with a clean cloth, so I would not get so many fibers on the frame,....

will post after blast photos soon
here is the frame after priming with EASTWOOD'S rust encapsulator red oxide type primer.

painted with EASTWOODS "2K AERO-SPRAY CHASSIS BLACK"
it says it has 2 component nano ceramic technology
sprays well in a fan pattern

activated by pressing in an activator pin on bottom of can,....

I know rustoleum high performance enamel in the tall can would prob have been just as good.....

but I wanted to try the product

it seems to be a great product...
also used their can for coating the frame internally,...

not sure how good I did,....but better than nothing...
