    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    They mount similarly to the Thor, etc boxes for CJ-7's but aren't made out of plastic.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    I didn't know either until I went looking for the panels. There's a guy in Toledo who has some NOS stampings (could only lay his hands on the passenger side...he has the panel behind it too for both sides as well as the panels for the pre-'76 fenders) and there's a guy who makes repros (which is...

    He's the welding instructor at school but is originally a body & paint guy by trade (actually graduated from the school in the 70's) just does it selectively on the side now.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Body & Paint guy came by Saturday to test fit the front clip prior to finalizing the repairs & painting the grill (waiting on the weather to warm up a bit to paint the grill & dash). He noticed some rot starting to form in the double layered portion of the fenders, so I ordered replacement...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Actually, WAY more than 40 hours of footage since there were always at least 2 cameras on us and for the driving shots, there was a camera on the front & back of the vehicle in front of us and 3 inside on the dash!! I don't envy whomever has to go through all of that for editing. Couple of BTS...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Filming is a wrap!! About 40 hours of footage to make a 20 minute show. We were told 6-8 months for editing, then it would be scheduled, so sometime in the Fall most likely. Ended up with a rental JLU the same color as my wife's and did a little mild wheeling back to a secluded beach that's near...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    IIRC it was around $200...I'll check the receipt when I get home since I also had the powder coating batched in with it.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Trans linkage, sway bar, steering brace, pitman arm, tie rod, intake manifold (this is what the powder chrome looks like without the clear coat that dulls it) & ceramic coated exhaust manifolds.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Two guest suites and an extra Jeep, all you need is airfare (y) Planning to move down full time in July...been doing a LOT of downsizing & house sale prep the past couple of months. The producers are aware of my 'affliction' so we'll probably roll in some Jeep stuff with the local clubs...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Picked up the last few powder coated parts & the ceramic coated manifolds from the powder coater, so I'll be completing the engine assembly soon. Traded in the older Grand Cherokee that I was driving to knock a few bucks off of my wife's new 2019 Ocean Blue Metallic JLU Sahara that she ordered...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Note that the steering column collar didn't fit any of my three auto tilt columns...the shroud on them is the same size as the manual non-tilt column that was originally in the Scrambler. I had one of the machining students pop it in the CNC and enlarge the hole from 3" to 3.5"...just needs a...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Final dash mock up with the color (Ford Nitrous Blue) before it goes out for the real paint job. Switching gears back to final engine assembly...manifolds should be back from the ceramic coater shortly.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Last bit of mock up & tearing it back down. Holes for the passenger side windshield hinge were out of whack. Should have the manifolds back from ceramic coating next week so I can finish assembling the 360.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    The mock up is pretty much done other than the parts that I took up to the house to work on & I'm starting to tear it back down for body work & paint. I'll finish engine assembly, drop the drivetrain in & finish plumbing everything while the body is away.

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    As she sits right now. Front clip is off (hood is in the house garage for installation of the louvers, grill is in the basement for fitup of the radiator, trans cooler & AC condenser), windshield frame is in the basement for installation of a better cowl seal & the wipers (went with the WipeBoy...

    Project JPSK8 - my last build??

    Still mocking up, hoping to finish this weekend and get the body out to paint here shortly while it's still warm. Decided on Ford Nitrous Blue.
