I was thinking Q Beam or Amtrack. You might get a lot of people flashing their brights at you.
Very smart idea on the crowbar and bench!My "personal shopper" sent me 5 wheels and 7 grab bars today. More to come. I spent most of the day sand blasting and clearing the centers, dressing up the SS spokes, removing leather covers and putty like padding, and scrubbing the wheels. Sometimes I'll get a wheel that is slightly bent, and sometimes really bent. One wheel I got was on the column and it looked like it had been used as a pogo stick. That prompted me to drill a hole in my workbench and bolt the wheel down and straighten it. Now I check wheels and by putting some big washers under the wheel, so it sits flat on them, and cinching the wheel down, and then measure the height of the wheel at the spokes and the top. Our CJ wheels should be (depending on the thickness of the washers) about 4 1/4" bench to top of wheel. If not, a long crow bar over the high side and under the low side and a good push and you can even up the height. The green one took one push. The black one I got off of ebay (said not bent) took a few more. Once they are ready for padding and leather covering they go upstairs to my upholstery work bench. When done, they go to the unexpected guest bed in my shop. Unless the spokes are visibly kinked, you can straighten a wheel without hitting it with a hammer or damaging it.
I’m in need of a new rear bumper and was curious as to what brand yours is and what size tire you have mounted on it?Spent most of the day dealing with the new LED light set up.
Synopsis -- LED tail lights I probably paid too much for, LED headlights and turn signals/parking lights up front, third brake light. Started this project a couple of months ago. Got all of the lights in but had some issues (headlights didn't work was the main one). I also had put on a different 3rd brake light but not enough of it showed with the license plate relocation and the wagon wheels so now I have a new one.
First the brake lights:

Think you'll be able to see it. Although I'm not a real fan of the LED array type lights, that seems to be about the only thing available (at least that I could find).
I got mine off of ebay a long time ago (2007) from a seller gpfab. I don't see him on ebay anymore though. The EAG looks similar.I’m in need of a new rear bumper and was curious as to what brand yours is and what size tire you have mounted on it?
It looks frikkin awesome! I can't wait to see it back together. Will you add factory graphics eventually?
Definitely will be putting the factory graphics on, '82 SR stripes.It looks frikkin awesome! I can't wait to see it back together. Will you add factory graphics eventually?
It's metal flake. Believe it or not, this is my Scrambler's factory color, 1H Chestnut Brown. This is how it was is mixed per PPG's formula. Nothing extra, no modifications.That is beautiful. Maybe it’s the lights, but is there a little pearl in there?
I'm not sure I have anything cool jeep related, but if you are open to something else, let me know. Good friend of mine has a 76 Levi Edition in much better shape and I think this would look great in his garage. His father-in-law bought it new, now he and is wife are loving it and jeep'n it on a regular basis.I recently cut up a tub that was a 76 Levi's edition CJ7.
I have this piece of garage art that came off of it and is sitting on my workbench
I have the other side sitting in one of my windows
If you are interested in it, let me know, I would look to trade somethign cool Jeep related, wasn't looking for any cash.
