Still in limbo on the frame for now. I thought I was taking it to a local shop today but got put off until Monday. Anyhow...


Started working on the dash finally. I didn't realize my phone's camera took a dump (again) until I got home. That really sucks. Time for a new phone.


I started looking much closer at the dash yesterday and I gotta say, that paint guy really didn't do a good job. Lol. He was suppose to at least primer in the inside to keep the raw steel from rusting but after flipping it over, I can see he missed a bunch. That and he left a bunch of crap on the inside. I'll have to address that before it gets installed. Sorry for the fuzzy pics.













This is the dash assembled. Still a few things to do but this is it for the most part. I'll have to get better pics when I get a new camera. Unless I can find the old phone... Edit. Changed pic.

It looks great!
I just wish you could get that stupid palm tree reflection out of the picture that I see on the face of the gauges?

Thanks. They're cool and all but I'm not sure if I'll keep them in place or swap them out for black screws. Button heads or something similar. I have plenty of time to think about it.

Yeah, I'll get the back side cleaned up and green primered. That glove box door is cool and looks better than I thought it was going to look. I'm glad the black is breaking up all that green too. Lol. Besides the door latch, the door snaps in place when closed.


Edited for a better pic.

I don't work on aviation stuff but I do sell aviation stuff. I thought about buying the aircraft style bezels for the gauges but I don't know if they'll fit or not.

So after getting stroked by a couple of "customer friendly" frame repair shops the past couple of weeks, we finally took the Jeep to an old school frame shop 20 miles away. Because, you know, Los Angeles doesn't have a good frame shop within a 5 mile radius. Lol.


Frame shop says rear axle is 1/4" farther forward on the DS rear. Said my shackle reversal bracket is "dead nuts on". He thinks I can just loosen the rear ubolts, shift axle and bolt it back down. No explanation as to why the front axle appears to be shifted, although it's not. So....F it. Gonna weld it up, try shifting the rear axle and move on. I've wasted way too much time on this portion already.



A pic for amusement.
