    got it fully welded, sanded with 36 grit and then i hit it with an orbital with 220 to see th low spots.











    i need to fill a few low spots, cut the top for the storage compartment, build a lid, build cup holders, power outlets, and mounts.

    So I though i had pics of the brackets welded on without the plastic cover. I dont. I will pull the covers if you want. Its pretty simple i just welded some 1" x .125" flatbar to the c pillar and d pillar. They poke through the plastic cover and the molle grill just bolts to it using extruded t nuts.




    The tail lights i used buna windsheild putty. I will take a pic of the box. Its like playdough, you just roll a skinny peice and lay it in the grouve on the sealing faces. Press the pieces together and heat to 265f then press them.together again.

    I got a chance to work on the front mounts.


    I made 2 of these on a drill press an used a modified 3/8" drill bit to made the counter bore with a flat bottom.








    the cap screw head sticks up the material thickness of the console skins.


    welded to the back side





    from the top






    nice and flush





    i made some plates with captive nuts welded to the bottom of the tranny tunnel to bolt to.





    i also cleaned up the fitment between the factory console and the new one.

    This might be one of the coolest modifications to a ZJ that I've seen!

    I got some motivation today after recently getting the buggy repairs finished.













    I wanted really big cup holders. The stainless tumbler is a RTIC 8ball it’s one of my favorite cups. Fits like a glove. I will make some foam inserts to better fit a beer.

    Hopefully tomorrow I can make some progress on the lid. I want to get this powder coated ASAP.

    i needed a bulkhead for running the three brake lines through the floor of the jeep. this is the supply to the cutting brake and the 2 returns going to the rear axle.


    i was going to cut bend and tig weld one...but then i remembered we bought 3d printer. so here we go.


    the design





    printed from onyx resin reinforced with fibreglass.





    here is all the parts with both rubber gaskets.





    here is the rubber gasket installed in the top part. the 3 dimples are holes where the brake lines will pass through.





    here it is put together.
