Started the re-wire of the Jeep. I bought an OEM design for it, but the Jeep has been modified electrically too. Sooooo.... There are some things I will need to figure out before it gets all done. Waiting for parts and connectors from Amazon and I'll continue this next weekend.

Well I've got engine starter rotation after replacing the whole wiring harness.
I've been running into a lot of modification issues and I still need to get the lights straightened out, but knowing the Jeep will potentially start is good news. I don't have the gas line hooked up yet so I only confirmed the starter rotation and engagement. This thing has been a test of patience for sure.

Welcome to old iron! But look at it this way todays junk will never be around that long. They are lucky to make it to 10 years let alone 30.

All the wiring issues are done. For now. LOL! Started priming and undercoating the floor boards that I replaced. Once the under side is done I'll move on to the interior and bed line it. Then I can put the seats in and get it off of jacks so I can move it around. Still a long way to go, but at least it's progress.

Picked up a cheap Kentrol stainless front bumper for the Jeepster. I will be using a stock rear bumper that I have. Just want something to be there to start thinking about getting it on the road. I will most likely just put a winch plate in to fill the frame gap. It will give me a reason to put a winch on the Jeep

Well, I did the bed liner project yesterday. Floors had been primered  a couple weeks ago and just waited till the temp came back up. I used the Harbor Freight bed liner. I rolled/brushed 2 coats and then sprayed on 2 more coats to try to even everything out. I had to thin the bed liner so it would spray though. The gun I used just didn't like the consistency straight out of the gallon can. I'll have to wait a few days before I can do anything else inside the Jeep. It is already dry to touch, but this high humidity is not going to help anything.

JB Custom Fab twin stick installed. Fuel line fixed. Shifter boots installed. Seats installed. Put fuel in it and tried to start it. Took awhile since I had the fuel line open for a long time. It did start and I ran it for about 5 minutes. It was a good victory to hear it running. Now I need to clean up the underside and get it to an exhaust shop.

Got it in the drive way to wash the underside of the Jeep. Drove out fine and is still loud due to the lack of an exhaust. Got it washed up as best I could before the thunderstorm decided to come through. It will need more work under there to get it nice.
Drove it down the street, before putting it back in the garage. There is something making a clunking sound while driving. I'm hoping it's just the twin stick shifter out of rig.

Got it back from the exhaust shop this morning. The odd fire V6 sounds good now! After driving it I noticed that it will definitely need brakes and due to the exhaust I'll have to move the fuel line. The list can go on and on, but this will be the next couple of things to take care of.
