Today was a long process. Spent over 2 hours to make the front fenders and then started in on the front bumper. The wings of the bumper were a complete nightmare to figure out and cut but in the end, I got them done. I still need to do the final adjustments on both the fenders and bumper but that will be tomorrow. I've had enough for today after working on it for over 7 hours. I know, I know. NO DEDICATION.

Really nice work Kenbo.


In addition to your craftsmanship, your photos are excellent as well. The detailed and polished work show well on my monitor. What camera are you using?

When I take pictures in the shop, I just use a Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. I've had it for years and have loved it since the day I bought it. Great little point and shoot.

I sometimes ask myself why I put myself through builds like this. I sit there for hours on end making tiny parts that are getting harder and harder for me to see as I get older and then I realize that doing this sort of thing is what I like to do. That being said, I spent another 7 hours in the shop today. I managed to get my winch made. There is a small disk on the driver's side of the winch that you can rotate to turn the drum of the winch. Kind of thought that it would be cool to have it functional. Not sure if I will be able to operate it once the bush bars get made and in place but that's another story. I also made the hood spacer and cowel and did the routing for the details on that, including the engine vent. Those were a pain in the butt I tell you but I managed to get them done in one shot with no mistake so I'm pretty pleased with that. I also made the hood tie down and the hood UFO's and hinges and got them installed. The seat mounting blocks were also cut and put in place and hopefully, next week I will start in on the seats and the dashboard. Still a lot more to come on this build.

Well, due to circumstance beyond my control, I didn't manage to get to the shop at all last week so that's why there was no update on the build. I put in a solid 7.5 hours working on the seats today. I managed to get all the seat completed and dry fit into place as well as starting in on the dashboard. I didn't like the original centre section of the back seat as it didn't look like the real thing at all. It didn't look half as uncomfortable and unwelcoming as my real Jeep does so I made sure to modify the centre section to match the real thing. I put the seats aside for now as they will only be getting in my way while working on the dash. They will be glued in at a later point in the build. Hopefully, there will be more to show tomorrow.

I'm gonna be really disappointed if there isn't a functional speedometer when you're done.

Seriously though, this is fantastic

Another day, another 7 hours spent on the build. The progress was slow today as the parts were small and finicky. Got the dashboard finished and installed as well as the windshield frame. Also managed to turn the 4WD shifter and the stick shift. I have an eight ball for my shifter knob so I did my best to duplicate it on the lathe. Not an easy job I'll tell ya. I also got all the seats glued in to their final destination. I know it doesn't look like much was done, but the console in front of the driver's seat took over 2 hours to complete. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the progress. More to come next week.

Looking very nice, I know in the past you have shared the company name that sells the plan/drawings you have used, what about this piece?

What is the scale?

Thank You,
