Onward and upward
its getting there.

M38 or CJ3A screen fitted. (I think the CJ3A has the opening vent.)
front right new screen and bar not painted.jpg
and painted.

right side screen and bar painted.jpg
The roll bar I was told came off a CJ2A, however it appears to be a 78/79 CJ7 (With the bolt holes to go through the side of the body.)
It fit by putting ratchet straps on to get it over the lip, then releasing the straps so it pinged into place.

Wow it's looking real sweet there Tony. That windshield is far better. :thumbsup:

I notice you're using the small can for your silencer. How does that "sound". Is it a bit on the noisy side? The reason I ask is I've got the same set up but I used the long can. The trouble is it interferes with the installation of my side step.

I still have the short box and was toying with idea of swapping them over - but was worried I'd wake up half the county.

See what I mean?

The short box sounds ok, a little bit fruity but it isn't offensive.
The flexible pipe that goes under the chassis is split so I'm looking for an alternative.

Hi
Do you want to sell the old MB style windscreen frame as I want one for my low hood conversion.
I have got a spanish military M38 style screen with a vent and split glass if you want that military look. dont you find that the M38 screen is a bit low with
the cut down hood and that you are looking through the screen frame top bar?
Cheers Graham.

I will probably be selling all the bits I haven't used, when it is finished.

I bought a complete reproduction body kit and I've only used the wings and bonnet.

Im concentrating on getting it finished first.

Got wipers in today.

I dont think it needs them for the MOT but I suppose they may come it useful at some point.

Wiring still needs tidying and Ill have to tackle the dash at some point.

As long as you present it for MOT with the screen strapped down the wipers and washes will not be a testable item. as it then comes under the clause of an opening windshield, and dose not require same. :cool:
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

I know that the M38 was the military version of the CJ3A. Both used the same vented windshield frame. Both are of the low hood variety. ;)
