Finally FINALLY 99.9% All Done! Pics Included!

We are finally 99.9% done with my "winter ride" HA (not anymore!!)
Everything is done and the decals get a huge thank you for Tonka J200 for his creative expertise!!
Honey did the duals and they are positioned so that we can have the back window down while driving which is pretty darn nice! (It's only clamped now to make sure we didn't need to modify before final welding)
We had the syphon (sp) the gas out of it since it was almost full when we got it and it had sat in a green house for the last 9? years. It was foulling up the carburator pretty bad. I'm really excited and wanted to share it with you all! (sorry pics are kinda big)
Anyway, it goes in it's first cruise night this thursday~

I am just SO excited!
Thanks, guys!
I'm going to the cruise that was formally at TGI Fridays in Warwick- Now it's at The Cowessett Inn Restaurant on Cowessett Ave in West Warwick Rhode Island- Thursday night is the opening night!
For those of you that saw it before... She was terminal. Everyone gave me the raised eyebrow look and then smiled a little like I was insane and they didnt want me to snap!
Now it's WOW!!!
Hey, I know it's not everybody's cup-a-tea. It's no 57 Vette, but hey. It's unusual!
Hee hee hee!!!!

Amazing job. It looks beautiful. One of the cleanest looking NT's I have ever seen. Great color too.

Thank you so much!
The rims and interior are original. The emblems have that white background and we're changing the white to the blue color. Devoted husband figured out and bent both sets of bumpers. All underneath has been treated and coated.
We also have figured out how to use new Cherokee style shoulder belts for the rear and hide most of the mechanism behind the panels. I got a pair of shoulder belts out of a J10 and I have to say they scared me. They crumbled in my hands and I didn't trust them to hold up in a crash. I'll put up pictures of that once it's done.

It's awesome. Definitely one of the cleanest FSJs that's been posted on this site.

Awesome, Bev... absolutely awesome. You'll take a backseat to no one on cruise night. Kudos to hubby, too, for his support.

My pics must be pretty good, Lindel, the carpet isn't ripped but it's definitely threadbare to say the least. Probably not as bad as some of the southern rigs where it's just an oven in the summer.
DH is outside working on the seatbelts now and I have pictures as he goes along.
The guy who did the body work and put on the decals keeps saying that I must hate his guts. It was a lot of work for him but not only did we pay him, we bought him a nice plazma cutter too. It takes some of the sting out!
