Progress slowed down a bit due to being out of town, family, etc. Plus I have been taking care of some leaks, electrical, and carb issues. In between all that I've been working on the windshield frame which turned out to be more work than I anticipated. The previous owner of the windshield frame must of repaired it at one time and welded the frame crooked. So I had to cut the frame and reweld it correctly. The track where the inner w/s slides into was also bent so I had to bend it back in position to allow the inner w/s frame to slide in. What a Pain! I was at the point where I was just going to order a new repro one and even called Ron. Luckily he was all out so I kept working on it until it was right. Persistance paid off in the long run.
Some of the unwanted holes that I had to fill. Believe it or not these were the last holes filled on this jeep. Thank God! I must have filled at least a thousand holes. I definitely have become proficient in the art of hole filling.
Repairs finished and frame primed.
I also mounted the spare tire on the last remaining combat rim and attached it to the jeep
Right now the glass for the windshield is being cut and should be ready for pick up in a couple of days. All I have left to do is put another coat of paint on the fenders, grill and hood, clean up and paint the passenger seat, finish wiring the head lights, generator, regulator, paint the w/s frame OD, install the glass, and install the seat cushions, canvass top and paint the unit markings. Think I can make the Veteran's Day parade Nov 11th? I hope so!
