I'm back, well, sorta, when I can

So five years and three kids ago I decided to re-wire my '78. As with most Jeeps, nothing could be quite that simple. Between apparently having too much fun with my beautiful wife and trying to keep my ever increasing herd of monkeys in line I have managed to...

Remove the body, blast it, cut cancer and weld new steel.

Wire brush and re-coat the frame.

Design and build new motor mounts.

Cut some new shackles and install some new springs.

Epoxy and urethane the underside and re-install the tub.

And the beat goes on, but I'm starting to make some progress and it feels good to have something that looks somewhat Jeeplike in the garage!!!

Good to have some help too.

What a beauty and the Jeep is nice too.
