    Thanks Michael, UPS just dropped off the new front springs. Once that's done I'll finish the front brake lines then drop the drive train in.

    Looking forward to seeing some more of your metal work, get well soon man.

    Waiting for some friends to help connect these two pictures with 6 'Small bolts'. From there the rest is downhill... :D. albeit a long hill.

    Finished the body work and have all the disassembled parts in 2K primer. Going to apply the under coat tomorrow weather permitting. Have applied 3M seam sealer to everything before I primed the metal.

    Connected the hazard switch, and with that now functioning was able to get it to pass inspection! I can't say it's exactly freeway worthy, what with the crazy drivers in Houston, but it's legal. Thank god Texas doesn't require an emissions test!

    I've been working away on CA gold. I replaced the rag joint, rebuilt the draglink end and installed a new lower steering column bushing. Also, I think I sourced the leak on my transfer case. I found the nut to be a little jacked up in the process.

    I installed some new window regulators and put the windows back into the correct doors. So with new regulators and new felt in the channels and the windows in the correct doors now the windows roll up and down again. I still have to get the weather strip for the outside of the window and correct bolts for all of the door. The body shop guys thought they were doing me a favor by replacing all of the bolts with new stuff. Here is a couple of pics of the passenger door torn apart and back together.

    New OCD top is on. That thing is tight like a drum! Think I am going to just enjoy it for a while since the weather is so nice. I treated it with UV protectant. DO NOT get that stuff on your soft top windows as it's absolutely brutal to get off. I will probably tackle the FST doors next year and just roll the regular hard doors this winter.
