The garage is still a mess from the fire. However the kids are back to school so I have some free time. Ken and I made some progress on the restoration today.

We got the steering all connected and the wheels aligned with a 2mm toe-in as per the manual instructions.

Basically I am civilinizing my GPW frame to properly accept the CJ2A body and parts I have. Not cool to some but like I have previously posted I am just building a Sunday driver with the parts I have acquired.

It feels good to be wrenching again.

Are you sure that is a re-build or a brand new Jeep being made in a factory? OMG

Transmission next. Then transfer case.
I have a T84 and a T90. I think I'll go with the T90. Sounds like it's a better (stronger) transmission with easier to source parts.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
Honestly I have no idea what I'm doing. 
Lots of YouTube videos and lots of reading.

I am spending the weekend watching 

If anyone is in the Vancouver BC area please drop in for a beer.
I'll keep building and posting.

Jon
