  • more steps... time to figure out the angles and pull the buckets out



    next day or so I'll be using those measurements to put the projection lights in


    now big, gaping grill hole


    I know it seems soon to buy these, but I need to do whatever bracing - that means hole drilling, something I hate doing in new paint


    cringe - I suspect these will be the Waterloo of the lights - because it is exposed to the elements


    I like, a lot


    I did try to get it off without damage, but alas, no


    I didn't damage the door, though, and that's a win


    put the doors back on to re-set the gaps



    I got pretty close, a bit of tuning then the doors can come back off to finish stripping and do whatever the decision will be about widening this area


    the gap is gone


    I ran out of time, so it's not really fully on and lined up

    • door handles - ugh


      whoa, pretty straight


      and this is where I got stopped - there's a clip on the bottom that is not coming off - so rather then go with my next solution that involved a large, hole saw.... I stopped



      shiny new parts - actuators


      anyway, that's all for now

      • abrcadabra it's off...... how, I have no flippin clue


        shiney new part



        experimenting with fitment


        I had this metal from last time I built an adapter


        too tall.... don't have 1/8" stainless


        onto the next step of the process

        I turned the bracket over to lower it - it's pretty close to where it needs to be

        next up will be fabrication brackets.

                          trick is going to be how to make this happen... pop up or solid mount with lifting light cover?

                          • FGZ,

                            Would the 2x4 intake come with it? I would not even want to know what the shipping would cost from HI. Thanks anyway, but I'm good on project cars right now. No PM expected! Reading about how much fun SBG is having has gotten me to thinking about them. My GF's dad has one just sitting there, been parked in a garage for a couple years because of a PS leak.

                              sorry, the intake is now slated to go on the 55 plymouth straight axle gasser....eventually...

                              shipping to west coast like oakland or san francisco is about $1300.

                              and if your girlfriends dad got one sitting there, what are you waiting for?!?!?!! GIT-R-DUN !!!!

                              • We have been repairing Jeep YJ ECM's lately.....replacing 3 dried out capacitors for a few bucks beats spending hundreds on a nos ecm that comes with dried out capacitors already installed.

                                Anyways, that involves digging the factory potting off the circuit board, leaving the new capacitors exposed. Some silicone sealant does the trick to keep them out of the elements.

                                Maybe your lights just need a date with a caulk gun?
