    My bro removed some logos off my inner fenders and patched them since we modified them to be able to remove my radiator without tearing the whole front end apart.

    Got the last of the large stuff moved over to the paint booth to prep for primer, running boards, front fenders, inner fenders.

    It's looking so nice! It's a good thing you went to Yellowstone when you did. The flooding and landslides look like a terrible mess.

    Haven't made huge progress on the bodywork stuff, waiting to install a new air compressor for paint booth, got some hammering to do and then we should be ready to seal everything. Waiting on the compressor we decided to revisit the engine and get the new hydraulic roller cam put in, took out a solid mechanical flat tappet that was for drag racing.

    PXL_20220703_192403385.jpg

    Degreed the cam, put in all new springs, tested springs, all new pushrods, new timing chain (which I didn't even need) new timing chain cover, new smaller diameter damper, everything is going back together slowly.

    As well I decided to start a project at home for those weekends I am not up at the shop and have some free time. I have had this old Jeep for 23 years, needs a lot of TLC. Putting all new steel tube flat fenders/flares, new exhaust and I need to drop the AX-5 transmission and see if I can rebuild it (blew out third gear a couple years ago) It's just running and old AMC straight 4, have many other things I would like to do to it but for now would just like to get it drivable again.

    Nice YJ! Those flat fenders look great! A very capable trail rig, for sure! Down in low-low that straight 4 will climb a tree! I need to put some fenders like that on my '05 TJ!

    Thanks, I like it, they wasn't cheap but they will surely last. I've sure had a lot of fun in the jeep over the last two decades. Maybe I'll build the drivetrain up better in the future but the 40 is really my priority.

    Not any huge updates on the 40, we did get the engine recammed and changed out many other things, it's all back together and just waiting for body parts to start going back on, I also need to get in there and touch up the frame where we chipped and scratched up the paint.

    Started moving all the panels around the paint booth getting ready for epoxy primer, tomorrow we will start cleaning out the dust, wiping everything down etc. Shop got a new air compressor and some new spray gun items so we are close, time and good weather is all we need. Look forward to seeing paint get put down but I know we have our work cut out with sanding/bodywork... Also I went ahead and got some gear vendors on order.

    Curious, did you build the flat fenders or are they an aftermarket part? I could probably find something with a bit of searching, but it's easy to ask since yours look so good! You're a bit of a hike from there, but have you taken the YJ to MOAB? Mine's been there twice, and in the SW Colorado area several times, too. MOAB is AMAZING! That sound of the big tires on the slickrock climbing a steep grade is one you don't forget!

    Thanks, it'll look even better once we start putting the truck together, I have different valve covers for it.

    I bought them from TNT customs out of Wyoming. I used to go down to Moab like 20 years ago, last time I went was about 8 years ago in a cherokee I no longer have. Still friends with a lot of people well known around here in the Jeep community. Here is a couple old 35mm shots.

    Golden Crack? I was there in 2008, smaller tires back then! Your pic is better, but I've got the memory, too!
