Re: PICTURES OF MY JEEPSTER BUILD UP..AGAIN

Hey Jim, I like the shock setup for the rear. Now I understand what you were talking about with the rear shocks. Your Jeepster and mine are going to be Sister vehicles in suspension setups, thanks to your advice on how to set mine up. When they're done we'll have to do a family photo (since we have the same camera too [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img])
I'd like to come up and hang out some Sat. afternoon in January if you're up to it.
Cheers,
Michael

Now thats awsome!! That body is very nice...I can't see any rust anywhere. I like the spare rolling chassis for a body dolly.

Yup, very nice Jim, very clean. Now I understand what a frame-off buildup should be! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Jim, that chassis is BEAUTIFUL. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] You guys down south are so lucky to have rust-free steel ( or ANY steel). Even after blasting, mine didn't look THAT good. What have you got in mind for external body colour? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: PICTURES OF MY JEEPSTER BUILD UP..AGAIN

Only real rust was on the passenger floor bloard area where the seat bolts down. After getting that area down to bare metal I ended up with 2 holes the size of a tooth pick. I treat the whole Jeepster with por-15 metal ready which why you see streaks in the metal. Great Stuff!

Re: PICTURES OF MY JEEPSTER BUILD UP..AGAIN

I have been tossing what color to use for some time know. Started off wanting to paint it Petty Red but not sure now. I like the Indain Ceramic color too....very different. Does anyone have pics of a Jeep that color? I have only seen one. Also have been looking at the old Jeepster colors as well. Willys had a Emerald Green that I would like to see a pictire of.

Re: PICTURES OF MY JEEPSTER BUILD UP..AGAIN

Are you keeping the inner shocks as well as the outers? It looks as if the inners need one of the ends turned or it will want to bind up. I got around that by mounting a stud at one end, perpendicular to the plane of the other end.

Re: PICTURES OF MY JEEPSTER BUILD UP..AGAIN

I do plan on runnig inner and outer shocks. When light to medium 4-wheeling I will only disconnect the say bar links but when rock climbing (Rubicon) the out shocks will come off along with the disconnecting the sway bar links. You may be right on the inner shock binding though I thought I set it up very close to a waggie shock set up. Easy to change over.
