Also picked the best access cover for the tailgate, cleaned and primed it, and a bunch of other stuff.

The primer on your access cover for the tailgate and a bunch of other stuff looks different than the other primer you have been using on body panels, dash, etc. Is it?

Yes, it is self etching primer for applying directly to bare metal. After the fact, I talked to a few guys that have used high build primer on bare metal and had no problem. I had a quart and used it. Hope I don't have a problem with it.

Hood, front fenders, and tailgate are painted. Will probably repaint the quarters next.

Nice and shiny. You guys with your shiny paint make me jelous. Is it an optical illusion or is your air cleaner gonna stick out the hood.

I have an inch and a half spacer on the engine. It is going to be very close, we will see once I get the hood on.

Got my full gasket set from BJ's Off Road. Also ordered a set of door hinge pins and bushings. Installed the new bushings and put them in primer with a bunch of other small parts.

Was able to get the Hood bar and braces, front door hinges, small tailgate covers and fender braces all painted tonight. Finished up at about eight tonight.

The PO had a 1in spacer, I think it was a 1in, on our 89 and there is a half circle imprint where the front of the air cleaner rubbed the hood. I was also wanted to put a 4 hole 1in spacer under my carb so I put a 1in piece of wood on top of the front of the air cleaner and gently closed the hood. There is about 1/8in clearence with it. FYI.

Fenders are lined up with the cowl, took a little pushing to get them where I wanted them.

The front of the Wagon is done. Bumper is on, hood is adjusted as best I can get it. Cowl panel is in, but I can't find my washer nozzles. Hood bar is on, I'am happy with the way it looks. The paint is not perfect,but I'am happy with it.

I put the front on to get some of this stuff out of the way and also because I wanted to see how it looked.

I agree! What color is it?
I was looking at a Steel Glow Gray Metallic from one of the old Jeep paint chip cards, and your truck looks pretty close...

Man that looks great! I think the early Razors are super nice. Looks really good with your bumpers and that color. Well done! Are you super stoked on it?
