I found this what I assumed to be a authorized Jeep wrench for the luggage rack under the dash.



I think Crist Clapper is gonna want one of these.....bet he doesn't have one

When I went to pull the body off, I did find that the caged nuts were rusty and spun in the cages. So I had to cut out around the rear ones and under the drivers seat to get access to the nuts.

I made new "cages" since I couldn't find any, and welded them back in over the old cleaned up nuts.....

I built a body dolly to set the body on.....





I bought a HF hoist awhile back. But my I-beam in my shop is boxed in on the sides, so I couldn't use it as a trolley. I had to fix it in place. But man, is that thing handy. I couldn't have gotten this far without it. I've used it for everything.

I pulled the body with it.

I also use it to roll the chassis and the body in & out of the garage. I put a anchor with a roller pulley in the floor directly below the hoist, and turn it into a winch. It works great.









I also want to give a round of applause to those of you who do all this without a nice garage. Some of you without a garage at all. I've been reading your threads, and I'm impressed.

I finally got my dream garage, 24x36, and I don't ever want to go back.
You guys do great work without one. Even mine got too small quick. But I won't complain.

My gas tank coffin was in pretty good shape. I used POR-15 on it, and it's ready to go.

I started on some interior stuff, because I don't have money to do big stuff. I did the voltmeter conversion, and started painting the pods. I bought about 3 different gauge clusters over time, trying to put together 1 nice set with 4 nice plastic lenses.





I used my trusty little SpeedyBlaster filled with soda to blast old paint of the gauge pods.

My interior was all black. I like the "Palomino" look of 2 tone browns & tans. I used interior vinyl paint after a really good cleaning to change the color on all the interior trim pieces.

The finished door panels....



My 30 year old dash pad was still in great shape, thank goodness, and it took the darker color brown. "Bluebird Brown" I think it is.

The rustiest part of my Cherokee is the rear fender flare bottoms. I got some flares off of a J10 from BostonBob in Conifer.

On the flares I got from him, the pass side flare was perfect, but the drivers side was solid, but mangled good. I didn't think I could save it, but it was better than what I had. I managed to straighten it out fairly well.

I'm the world's worst welder. I need to take a class. I just can't get nice clean spot welds.
So, when I got this one pretty close, I used lead to fill all the pinholes. It's not finish smooth, I'll obviously still need some filler, but there aren't any pinholes in it.

Once I ground down the welds, and filled the seam with lead....

I had to make the inner fender piece. I used cardboard, made templates, then pounded out a round shape. Sure would love to have an english wheel, and planishing hammer, etc, etc.....







I painted the inside with POR-15, and painted the backside of the filler piece I made with POR-15.
