Pictures! Awesome Dave!! I have to say the work is excellent. But that back bumper is a show stopper. High compliments to your friend. And don't think for a second that little photo of Daisy in the background leaning on the General escaped my eye by the way....

FleetFox,...

thanx Man

I got a lot of dukes stuff

I was thier target audience in 1979 when it hit the airwaves....

a few years ago I tried to recapture my youth, and built a General

I think the photo you may see is of a Girl from Arkansas

a policeman's wife, he raises money for special olympics with his general.

scott romine I believe,....his wife and some of her friends posed for posters,...
they sold them and gave $ to charity....

I will post some photos of the posters,...good eye.

thanx but, no dice....

in the photo, if it is showing on your device....

it is the curved black plastic pieces

they screw onto door in jamb area near hinge

then the long curved piece holds wire(s) and goes into an opening in body jamb area near hinges,

...keeps them from crimping, binding, etc,....

simple but ingenious design, although I like the final design they used for wire gutters in jamb area...

paper patterns for cab trim panels,

this truck had no trim in the area behind bench seat

or in the cab corner cavities near where seatbelts are.

I decided to put some vertical 4x10 speakers in that cavity area...

the new white marshal fog light covers
are repros made by a seller on eBay called "candlepower"

I have bought several sets form him

then I usually change/customize them,....

on my wagoneer I made a few diff versions,...

on this project

I wanted to do a yellow cover,...like KC used

I run yellow KC covers on my 2004 red rubicon and it pops

but wanted yellow covers and a marchal logo for the j10 front bumper

re drew the logo for cutting and made some decals for the yellow covers.

I recently asked the question,...

why was a struggling company , like AMC,....

using expensive French made fog lights on these jeeps ?

just a thought,...you would think KC would have gave them a deal...

on the fog light covers,

the final design I am running

was inspired by some WARN fog light covers

that Norbert, at grandwagoneer.com uses,....

I will start a thread on building the 88 wagoneer, or refurbishing the wagoneer

it was in Great shape when I found it.
