Had to get the insides done before I could go any farther with the top.

Had some left over oak and walnut glued up so made the seats out of this odd ball wood.

Between the seat glue ups I worked on the wheel wells.

Then glue up the top and a ton a sanding would be in my future.

If I was to build another one I would leave more wood above the sides above the doors so the roof and sides would match up better.
With the older trucks and cars this usually isn’t a problem because of the square sides but with these more modern builds with angled sides more material needs to be left at the top for shaping.

It’s a long way from perfect but for a quicky scratch project not to bad I guess.

Wow! Love it! I would love to tackle a project like this in the future. I’ll probably make JKU Jeep if I can find some plans for it.
