    Coming along nicely. Are you going to drive it to Alabama when you are done?

    Robby the bottle opener is a nice touch. I simply must caustion you on welding with open top boots and shorts though one hot chunk of slag down the top of them and you'll know why. I made the mistake of welding something up quick one day wearing sandals and I wanted to chop my foot off to make the pain go away.

    It's a good looking restore, nice to see yourhard work paying off.

    It's looking great - out of interest the 'bottle opener' is a new thing for me - is it a weapon holder? it doesn't look quite in the right place or orientation for that?

    (and had similar experience to Brad with sandal welding :))

    It's in the correct position when the windshield is lying flat. There are straps that keep the weapon held in when the windshield is in the upright position.

    didn't know they made that - just seen some pics

    Edit - also I guess would probably work for a Thompson too?

    Hello Robby,

    Looking good, have not seen any recent post of your jeep, hope all is going well and your wallet is not empty at this point (which most likely is, but what's money for). Keep up the good work. Hope to see pictures of you in your uniform driving it in a parade.
    Cheers.
