It will be padded all the way back. I will make bottoms out of plywood. They will have padding one them and be covered with vinyl. So there will be seats on top of the wheel wells. The roll bar will double as seat backs. I will also install seat belts back there.

I do understand what you meant about the missing back seat though. I will worry more about that when he gets a girl friend again. He has not had a serious one yet.

Some great pictures of CJ-6's from the movie Hatari! Also a CJ-6 project JP magazine did: http://www.jpmagazine.com/projectbuild/154_0601_project_hatari_jeep_cj_6/viewall.html

Moe or Curly used a crap load of silicone to glue them on! I have crazy glued the rim back together. I am glad this thing is so simple. But there are wires hanging underneath that are not hooked up to anything. I am glad I have done this before!
Are the fuses in the switches? The 60's Scouts are like that.

Do you need a fuse box? I might have a extra one from a Scout II. Its only has room for six circuits and they would be the old tube style fuse.

Maybe some old style jump seats?

Hey now that is a cool idea. Thanks.

We are pulling the diamond plate off the corners and under the door openings. We want to clean them up and paint them Tan. They must have been painted because they are covered with rust. But they are cleaning up nice. I found some replacement lights that are LEDs. I will need to clean out all the silicone to get them in. The diamond plate is held on with 3/8 bolts with tiny little allen heads on them. Of course half of them stripped out. Oh well...it is not a true restoration until the grinder comes out!

Subbing for completed pics later on. Really neat project. I wish I were more mechanically inclined so I could do stuff like that.

No there are no fuses anywhere. Thanks for the offer. But I have 2 fuse boxes that hold 4 fuses each. They are coming with my order for my turn signal switch.

The gauges are hooked up to wires running through holes in the body without gromets or anything. I cant believe nothing has burned up yet.

After spending a week in California for a business trip, I finally got back to the jeep. I pulled out all the old wiring. And the tail lights were broken. The front running lights didn't have any wires to begin with. One headlight had live wires hanging in front of it. So I bought some rear led lights. I pulled all new wiring. I am a long way from being done. But I feel like I have finally accomplished something on this project.

Well I have been waiting for a steering wheel since May 5th. Jegs kept giving me the run around. So I cancelled my order with them and made one with Morris Jeep 4X4. They sent me an email today to tell me the parts are being shipped today. I decided to try to get a little something done. So I did a little body and paint. I am guessing the paint theme is pretty obvious. Daniel thinks it is the coolest Jeep he has ever seen. We are a long way from done. But I am pretty happy so far. What do you guys think?

Obviously the grill and the fenders are the only thing that is done.
