    Is that an intermediate dash being converted to an early dash?

    Sorta.
    Its originally from my old 62. When i converted to ps i used a cherokee column. Going with an intermediate column with the dash mount cut off so i can mount it like it originally looked.
    So im filling in the gap from the bigger column.

    Gl-5 in the front with friction modifier for the power Lok. Why does modifier smell so bad?

    Got off my bum today and stopped procrastinating.

    Got to drop the fuel tank fir the first time. It is empty. Drop the skid pan for it, 6 bolts, then a couple bolts holding the tank.

    Then i cut the mounts i made for the tank and made some extensions to lower the tank.

    This should help get the sending unit lower so i can run the tub on a single puck spacer.

    Ran out of time to put things back together.

    Only one smashed thumb with a blood blister under my nail.

    I installed a parking brake handle. I've been carrying a chock in the jeep to put under a wheel when I park.

    I clamped the end of the cable housing to the transmission cross member.

    It's nice having a parking brake now.

    Yesterday we started rebuilding the 302 that's going in my son's Willys pickup. Pretty straightforward except we found chunks of the cam bearings, of all things, in the oil pan.

    I made a storage box in the back fender for my chains and stuff. I dont like to use the under seat box it always fills up with woodchips or its covered in logs or whatever when i need something. I also put the same latch on the under seat box. They are kinda touchy and pop open when you hit the little bump but if you lock them they are fine. I didnt have a key that fit but i found one that almost worked and filed down the pins inside to work. Also the taillight is flush mount inside so i can turn on the lights and the plate light shines into it. And i painted the inside white

    I like this idea, kinda like the storage boxes on an MB but with side access instead of top. It uses an area that is otherwise dead space and we all know that storage space is at a premium on a CJ5.

    Yes but the roll bar is in the way and i think its better to have the door on the side for access. I even made the bottom out of stainless from an old barbecue to keep the rust at bay. I didnt want to cut a hole in the tub since its one of the only spots without bondo or patches but I knew it would be worth it.

    Took about 20 minutes to tackle my .75 mile commute this afternoon. Well over 12” of fresh snow in town and still falling!
