Well Briar Rabbit's come a long way since we found her in April 2016. Photo included. and we still have a little more to go. But it feels so good to be assembling!!!!!! We're starting our final mock-up to drill new body mounts, make sure all the pieces fit as they should and then take everything apart to grind down the body, prime and paint. It's been a long road (38 months, working one night a week) but a great experience working with my son-in-law. We drove the frame around the neighborhood (heck I liked it like that)and everything functioned as it should. But its finally looking like a Jeep again and that's pretty exciting.

Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

Wow you guys have come a long way for sure. Great Job.
Who picked that bright red (I guess) primer?
Hope your OD can cover it OK.

Nice work guys.

Thanks for the replies......... Yes Greg, Thought you'd appreciate that color and its already gone. I know your not a lover of OD but having served three branches of the service, its in my blood.   Mike & Mike, Thanks for the compliments. Jason worked hard to attempt to get the right angles for that hump.

Hey Man,
I love OD, on military JEEPs but not so much on Civi JEEPs. LOL.
By the way, Thanks for your service Sir!

We were able to get a coat of Marine Corps OD on Briar Rabbit just before the New England cold front set in. Just happy we don't have to worry about additional grinding and wire wheeling over the winter months.
