Fortunately, I live about 30 minutes from an Endura distribution centre.
I have had a lot of good luck with the product and really like the results. 

Also their in person customer service has been great. I’m very satisfied with Endura.

Sounds good brother.
Personally I’m sick of this social isolation BS.
What a pain.

Ok... I have not touched the jeep in about a month. As you may recall I am ‘civillianizing’ a ‘42 GPW frame for my salad. (Don’t judge).i needed to add a couple body mounts aft of the rear cross member where the A brace meets the frame. I have not yet drilled the holes as it will be easier to locate them once the tub is sitting on the frame. Happy to be cutting and welding again. I think I’ll work on the trailer hitch receiver next.

I started working on my hitch receiver today.
It’s going well. I’ll have it welded in next time I get to it.
Not my idea, I’m just copying what I saw others do on the internet. I’ll be able to insert and remove a modern hitch receiver or bike rack. I also have a plan to make a kayak/surfboard rack that will fit in there too when required.

Love the hitch-receiver configuration--it enables continued use of a pintle hitch or the drawbar, if you desire, and even stiffens up the rear triangle.

Ya, lots of options available now. Removable ball hitch. Bolt on Pintel hitch. I could even weld a bar to a pintle hitch to mount in the receiver. Bike rack. Kayak rack. Slide on winch, I could make a separate receiver up front so you could move the winch to either end as required. 

Sky’s the limit!!!!

And I agree, more structure to the frame.

Jon, I have been through your thread at least a dozen times now and have to say you are my new "Guru"! When I am finally able to get to mine, I will be following in almost exactly the same steps! That is if and when we come out of this episode of the "Twilight Zone"!

Something from the very beginning of your project about your frame kept popping up in my head and I finally remembered why! This may not be the case with yours. But, take a look at this and see if it might be a possibility!

SD, I can’t get your link to work.

I had a good afternoon of fabricating today.
All welded up. Now I just have to make it pretty again.

I got the rear end of the frame in primer. I was going to try just touch up some spots but realized this was probably easier and would yield a better result. I may sneak out there this evening and top coat it.

Your modded rear triangle looks factory--nice work!

Thanks LR47

I got some after dinner painting done. I noticed tonight that I am getting pretty quick at taking apart my HVLP paint gun to clean then reassemble. I had a flashback to 30 years ago when I learned to strip a rifle, lay out all the parts in order on a towel, clean them and reverse the process to reassemble. It’s funny how some things stay with you and serve you well later in life.

Slaterdoc,

I watched the video you posted. That’s hilarious. My chassis and power train were all 1942 GPW and someone put a 1947 tub on at some point. (And did not put much effort into doing it “properly”). While looking for parts I bought a second disassembled CJ2A. I had already completed the frame so I just carried on fitting CJ parts to my GPW foundation. I made all those mods just as I was bumbling through my build. I thought I was building a Jeep “salad” but you have just proven that actually my Jeep is a very rare factory original.

Thanks for that. I really enjoyed that video!

I am getting ready to install the toolbox to the tub. I decided to paint the inside area of the toolbox before welding it in as I don’t think I would have been able to paint in there after.

I stayed up late tonight to dismantle and rebuild the rear seat rear leg catches. Not a difficult job. It’s just 2 springs pushing on 2 rollers. Mine were completely rusted up. Again I have double everything so I’ll take the best parts to make 2 serviceable latches.

I've never had the rear seat anchors apart. Do the spring strips just sit in position without any fastener/weld on each end?

The springs just sit in place. 

I need to get new 1/4” round stock to make new “rollers” and I’ll try find some spring steel to make new springs. They are pretty tired and not much spring left in them.

Toolbox is in. It was a bit of a pain. The floor and sidewall are not perfect nor is the toolbox. So there was a bit of manipulation to get it all together. Now I just need to make it pretty again.
