    Not sure on a roll bar yet, maybe eventually.

    Ok, didn't get anything done yesterday since it was so damn cold. But Friday AM before work I started on making my own air cleaner.. Figured I could make something that fit the car a bit better than the chrome one..

    Not anywhere near done, but you get the feel for it here





    I also got the hole for the rear mounted radiator cut.. the black perforated steel is not cutting it, I need to pick up some rusty expanded steel to put in the hole.



    also the best news, I was able to start the car for the first time today!!!

    Over the last week or two, I have just been welding.
    I now have a working passenger door, and steering.
    I also got a windshield frame, and glass (glass not getting installed until last)

    By this weekend all my wiring should be here, so should have working lights soon.
    I also ordered a brake booster, master cylinder, brake pedal combo, and a throttle cable...


    Still to do... Mount the new parts when they arrive, put hinges and latches on drivers door, mount radiator and fans...
    Brake lines... then I think it's onto floors!

    So, I got a little sidetracked with some work on the 1930, and
    knocking out a quick motorcycle build.
    BUT, now that those are done, I am back on this car.

    This weekend I knocked out the brake lines, and now have brakes.
    Got the E-Brake cables, and handle done. Got a license plate light done
    (so all the lights/turn signals/etc are working) and some more welding.

    I was ready to do mount the radiator, but found a crack in one of the tanks
    (Plastic stock Jeep) so now I need to come up with the spare change to order a new one.

    Once I manage to get a new radiator in and mounted, I think the last thing is exhaust.
    Then finish out the floors and throw in some seats.. The end is getting near!

    So Last week I was able to get a new radiator. Spent a little more, but got one that fit in front so that I don't have to run the hoses to the rear
    got the hoses on, transmission lines, fans, etc..

    I was able to mount both front seats, get the E brake handle mounted and working, and install the windshield along with one wiper.

    Today (for you offroad guys) I was able to get rid of the crappy 249 Transfer case. Did a input shaft swap and mounted up a 231.
    Now I have the option for 2wd, and got rid of that viscus coupling in the 249, so I have a true 50/50 lock in 4wd.. Much better :)

    First time the homemade 4x4 37 has moved under it's own power.. Long way to go, but big milestone
    (This after starting it Friday, thought had bad head gasket, removed, replaced, still had a problem.
    Turns out it was a cracked head, replaced head today, and all better!)

    Ok, so today's the day. Spent yesterday thrashing on this 4x4 37 Sedan (with a 103deg heat index) to get her ready for today's date with the NC DMV License and Theft Bureau Inspector.
    If all goes well, she will be well on her way to getting titled and on the road. Wish me luck!!
