    What's to say?? the floor cleanup looks good, don't see any missing sections or rotted areas.. keep going!
    The front end work should help make it more enjoyable to drive. I wonder how long the box is going to last with that tire / wheel combination?

    And get the timing dialed in! At least you'll know where it stands and can tune from there, otherwise it's all a crap shoot! And don't forget to verify the vacuum advance is working and not leaking!

    The Jeeps looking good, and it's right for the whole interior to be bare metal. Lots of guys around here do LineX or RhinoLiner on the inside of the tub for protection.

    As for doing work on the street, in my experience you're going to wear out your welcome pretty fast. The general population knows next to nothing about DIY auto work, and it won't be long before customers mention your work to the shop owners, and the shop owners complain to the police, and, and, and ...... Using paint stripper in a public parking area, which with the old paint residue is going to be considered "hazardous waste"? It cannot end well for you. They'll love the attention it draws when it's all done with people oooohing and ahhhhing about the "cute little jeep", but not until it's done, IMO.

    One last tip that comes to mind for when you assemble the carb. In the kit you should find 2 check balls. They will be different sizes, but it’s a little hard to tell without actually measuring them. In the case of the kits I’ve been getting one ball (the larger) is polished and shiny while the smaller one is not so polished looking. The smaller ball goes in the accelerator pump well. If you happen to just drop the bigger ball into the well, it can jam in the port and be a real PIA to remove. The larger ball goes under the small spring and “T” shaped retainer under the venturi assembly.

    Anyway hope this helps a bit.

    The small ball is made of aluminum; the big one is steel, so you can easily tell them apart with a magnetic screwdriver. The steel one sticks to the screwdriver.
