YJ Progress
« on: January 27, 2015, 01:26:28 AM »
Pam is going to be out of town this weekend and I need to get work done. I could some help with the old body lift removal and installation of the new one along with installing the gas tank and skid. Not sure yet if we are going to have to cut old body bolts or the body to get those bolts out.  I have a welder, but haven't practiced enough with it to trust putting body pieces back if we have to do some cutting. If you have a plasma cutter that you could bring along that would be great for bolt removal.

Originally I planned to work both Saturday and Sunday, but Sunday doesn't look like it's going to happen now. Anybody that can help out Saturday stop on by. I'll pick up water, sodas and some beer along with ordering pizzas or something

I sent a note to Rock about getting my tires mounted on the rims one of those two mornings. I'm thinking 10am start for each day unless I can get my tires mounted early one of those two days and then that day may push out to a noon start. I'll know more by our meeting Tuesday.

Pam is pushing that I need to have progress by the end of February or I should just sell it as a project and wait to buy something already done. You guys know how that works though. Nothing is ever done.

From what I saw of your project last week, I believe you could have this thing yard driving in a weekend. That jeep is clean, I will bring my 250K propane heater if you would like.

I've got a couple kerosene heaters down there that we can use. One sounds like a jet engine taking off with electric/kerosene and the other is more of just a space heater once the garage is warm. The jet engine is only used for a few minutes and then the other one maintains.

Just looked at Sunday and I'm going to cancel the work on the YJ for Sunday. I've got a couple dogs coming in and they are talking about snow all day. Hopefully we can get the gas tank/skid installed and the body lift installed. Maybe even the leaf springs and axles. We'll see how it goes.

Does anybody have a small jack that can fit between the body and frame to pry up one side at a time?

A pipe or even 2x4 should work...

I have a nice scissor jack that will fit under about anything.
