(05.20.15) I got a couple more hours out there, so I removed the tailgate and bracketry and started on the rear. It is not all that exciting.
The interesting part was the replacement panel for the CJ vs. the YJ one for this body. I had to drill/tap the light holes on the CJ one after I inadventely filled one of the holes in, only to find out they were different sizes between the stock holes of the YJ and the CJ ones. I never knew that.

(05.31.15) I have been in clean up mode since the big trip down to Jersey to bring parts and misc items only to return with more needed parts and some other items that needed clean up and cut up and put away. All in all a great trip, a fun time with old and new friends. I just need to get back to the bodywork and hopefully that will be soon now that all the other jobs are coming to an end.

(06.10.15) I have been doing a lot more shopping and picking for Jeep parts than I have been doing actual work on this. It is what it is and I can't do much about it until after the car show, which is less than 3 weeks away at this point. I have made sure a few parts work and have started the polishing of the side trim. That will be done soon and I will now hopefully get back to the body work.

(06.16.15) I actually found time to do the body work... well, start it at least. I was able to finish all the clean up of the other parts and then was able to get to spreading some very light filler to make up where the weld distortions were for the wheel wells as well as the rear corners. It is amazing how much sanding goes into so little filler.. and then a little more, and then a little more... wash, rinse, repeat... I mean spread, sand, repeat.

(07.07.15) I keep picking away at the body work and now paint and the other axle setup for the Silver Jeep. It is coming along, just need more time in the day (and energy)!
