    I wish you were local... I'd take the rear wheel wells and floor off your hands. Mine looks like someone hauled sand and gravel.

    I would be careful with the cutting torch. To much heat and you will start to warp. I just used the cut off discs on my build. a lot of them. Looks great!

    Have a majority of the panels installed. Everything behind the seats is welded, will have to grind , then one more pass welding then filler. Waiting on a couple of pieces to show up before I can do the passenger floor. Need to get some primer on this puppy.

    Thanks, doing things a bit different than most. The tub needed a lot of work so I put it on the list to do early in the build. The reason being, as time goes by and I go into the "will I ever get done" stage, I hope to be working on the smaller stuff that will not take as long on one item. Also if I got a rolling frame done it would take up half of my garage. My plan is to finish most everything and then start putting the jeep together which will be a motivator near the end, I hope.

    Got the last bit of floor cut out and the lower passenger side cut out and the new piece fit. Still have to grind a little more to move it up some.

    All the replacement panel are in. On the list, install wheelhouse bracing, left and right side, weld up all the little holes, install floor support left and right side, grind welds and start filler. Install the tool box. Primed the tub today, will not have to deal with flash rust, spent 3/4 of a day removing rust so I could prime. Starting back to work, so things will slow down. Could work in the garage every night after work but hate not giving my girl (my dog) some attention. Need to order something, the Brown Santa has not been at my house for a couple of weeks.

    Looking good Steve. I should have had you fix my body, lol. Put those new seats in there so we can see what it looks like.

    I could have got all those panels installed in 4 to 5 day. If I did it again I could knock off a day. Then a day welding and primer. At this stage in the build I have more time than money.

    Matt , a picture of your jeep is my screensaver, just for motivation

    The seats will be fitted, need to install anchors for seats and seat belts. Putting the old plates with bolts back in.
