(04.02.15) I was able to get a few more things knocked out this week. I finished up the rear seat and OEM trunk storage box installation and getting that all fit. I moved onto the wiper bottle and found that it was nice that the old firewall had the holes (well 3 of them) for it even though the wiper bottle didn’t exist on the Jeep. I then started to finish weld and grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind. And grind.
With most of the grinding done I filled in the 4 holes from the YJ Wrangler fender flare extensions and then I sanded them down and sprayed them. It was at this time I started to notice we are getting a little humidity back into the weather pattern, so I wanted to get some paint on the underside of the Jeep.
My neighbor came over and helped me flip the tub and I went to work on fixing one more area that was bad near the rear seat mount. I fabricated a piece that fits and now it needs to be welded in place and then shot with ZeroRust and then I can move onto painting. All in All I hope to have the body back the right way with the underside completed so I can start on body work by the end of the weekend, we will see how that goes.

(04.05.15) Happy Easter to everyone. I had a few minutes to update the site and get a few things done. I went Jeep hunting yesterday and bagged me a few things to keep and a few to sell/trade. I then came home and put a coat of green on top of the Zero-Rust that I had put on the day before. The bottom will get cleared tonight and it will be ready to be flipped back on the correct side for body work and eventually paint. It is moving along, but will slow a bit, I have to go pick up a parts Jeep next weekend as well as a new tractor as the snow is finally beginning to melt and I will have to start mowing soon enough.
