So look glad to see you're back on the Chief!!! I scored a 78 project for free which will be back burnered for quite a while so I'm living vicariously through you,

Saw some three piece front and rear chrome today. Front has a small dent but they look in great shape. I need the doors and tailgate. Thoughts...

Hello all - Been a bit.

Well, its time to start on this again.. finally. Some life changes, and that has delayed progress.. I did get it out of the new garage. Fired right up after I got some fuel up to the carb... drove it for a few days.. fun!

So mech its good, now its time to start some cosmetics.. minor rust repair and interior work. Paint is in the future as well. Will most likely change the scheme some. My usual modified "sort of original" look. But with some other tweaks...

Glad to see you back at it. I did take your idea on using the chrome door trim for the rear panels. Looks great. I had a slight carb fire since then so I’ve been cleaning up the engine bay and getting my Fuel Injection running right. Good luck on your ride. I’m watching for more ideas.

Shane who ?? lol

So - getting ready for rust repair on the flairs.. and then body work. Then it will be onto paint... CHAA-CHING. ugh.

Waiting on a driver lower rear 1/4 patch panel from BJs.. they are on back order I guess. plan it to use the truck flairs as a donor for flair repair... [ I got them from Tonka on a bed he was cutting up anyway ].

Overall, plan to gut the body, take it off and leave it at the body shop .. then bring the chassis home for some freshening up. Probably will go through the 401 as it will be SO easy to do when the Jeep is apart anyway. And fuel injection.. DONE with carbs for now.

Of course, this will be a color change.... and a new interior of sorts.. NOT going 100% original on this.. just "nice".

I figure this will take a year as money is a bit tight these days !!

I totally understand time/funding slow downs. Mines still on the back burner till I can funnel time/funds her way. I do little things here and there when I can but till we get the crops in all I do is look at her and make a to do list.

Keep posting your tips and tricks. I still love the one where you used the chrome door moulding all the way to the back. I have mine installed and it looks great. One day at a time and she’ll be ready to hit the road.

Message sent to hopefully jog the memory since apparently I can't get out to wheel much lately.

Thanks for the update on the thread. I always like your and Al's threads so I figured I might as well join the board since I'm considering another Jeep build.
