(01.27.15) I was able to get the parts over to the sandblaster in the fun snow that we had over the weekend. Currently there is a blizzard going on, so I guess I got the lesser of two evils last Sunday, however, it made a wet mess and by the time I got home, the parts were starting to have a little rust showing on them.
I was at the blasters and it started to snow... typical for me and my luck, but we weathered through it... see what I did there ;) The hood was started to be blasted, but in short time it was found to be full of bondo, it was a mess, like the old firewall and a lot of this "solid" Jeep.
I got all the parts home and stated to sand and paint some of them. I am playing around with colors and the green is on the top of the list... brown I have tried and I am not sure which way I am going to go yet.
I finally started on the disassembly of the firewall to get the plate off to see how bad of shape it is in and what I am going to have to do to the other "Right Hand Drive" firewall. I use that term loosely as it is actually a LHD firewall with what was plates attached to it and now with all of them off, it is actually more like a LHD vs. a RHD. I will have to patch it up and do a few things to it to get it to work. Plus, the plate that was removed was not in the greatest of shape, but is needed for the brake and clutch hole alingments.
