  1. Thanks! It's a 10' paint job for sure, though. It's not so good that I'm afraid to rub a tree or get it dirty, but it's all one color now which is all I wanted. I got everything bolted back on. I love how this thing turned out!
  2. Thanks! I think they turned out pretty good. I got a lot done this weekend. I got the fender flares painted and installed, the front bumper painted, the rear axle painted, the leaf springs painted, the frame rails painted, and a few other misc goodies painted. I also built a header-back exhaust with a high-flow Magnaflow Cat, and cheapo Cherry-Bomb two chamber muffler. The over axle hoop I was going to re-utilize was rusted straight through the side so I will have to buy another section so I have a rear exit. Right now its just dumped straight out after the hanger. I al
  3. I got it mostly pieced back together. At least enough to drive it to work so I can get my emissions done at lunch time. I left the tailgate as is because I love the patina it has gained over the last 30 years. I might spray some clear over it to preserve it's look. I still need to paint the fender flairs white, shackles, springs, front bumper, cab vents, and frame rails black, and roll on bed liner. I am contemplating doing bed liner on the rockers... Any thoughts? I have the door panels 80% done as well. I will finish those up here in the next week hopefully too. I ha
  4. It finally warmed up enough here in Boise to get some paint sprayed! I think I got pretty decent results for a 15$ harbor freight paint gun and one stage industrial enamel paint. It's not going to win any beauty contests but, it's a wheeler so it really doesn't matter. Other that the mismatched body lines at the bottom of the rear quarters, you really can't even tell it's bobbed unless you look real close.
  5. I'm buying both of them today to horde/put on eBay if you want one.
  6. This guy near me has two bezels that I believe to be Comanche Parts. They look like they're in great condition. If anyone has any interest I'll go and barter this guy down on price and will ship them at cost. DM if you're intersted https://boise.craigslist.org/pts/d/dash-bezel/6499330904.html
  7. I had a very productive weekend on the Jeep. I got the bed cut down and the half doors ready for paint. This week I am going to get some plate and 2x4 tube to finish boxing in the X-Brace and fabricate a roll pan style rear bumper. I really like how the rear looks right now so I want to save that simple look as much as possible. Of course 3 of the bolts holding the hitch on broke free inside the frame rail so removing it was not an option. I have a couple area's that will require some attention to finish it up.
  8. Yea I’m going to cut the bottom section off the door side hinge for both my half doors and full doors and replace weak factory pin with some 1/4” round bar. That way I can swap them on and off quickly. I’ll install a plug on the truck side of the speaker wires so I don’t have to deal with the speakers every time I swap doors. Today day I welded up the angled sections. I also went and picked up some new door panels to modify to fit my half doors. I ran out of time(don’t like being loud for my neighbors sake) to grind the welds smooth so I started modifying the panels. I thin
  9. Well I started at ground zero for the electrical system. I took off the battery cables and cleaned the terminals and posts. I seriously cannot believe it, but it fired right up after that. My flabber was thoroughly gasted. I also got my passenger door cut up. Today I'm going to the junk yard to find some new door panels. I want to make my half doors look as factory as possible.
  10. Howdy. I am going to start a build forum of my Comanche. I bought this rig as a low budget trail and hunting rig for 1500$ with only 98xxx miles on it. It has a 6" short arm lift on it already with leafs on the rear. It was not running and required a new oil pump. I did the rear main and checked all the main bearings for excessive wear due to low pressure while I was in there. The guy said he didn't run the truck after the oil pressure dropped and I believe him as the mains looked fantastic. I got it running with a new oil pump and then the crank shaft position sensor when out. Whi
