I'm a bit behind in posting pictures of the progress. I've been working on it pretty much every weekend. Here are a few pictures of taking the engine out. Also a few of the rotisserie fabrication finishing up.

Is that an S cam for a rotisserie?

Why yes sir! An S-cam and a slack adjuster! It works really well to roll it to any angle. I can do it with a wrench or an impact. It's kind of fun just to roll it in circles.

I will have to come back and add some text to the pictures. I am doing this from my cell phone, so it is a pain to do it all at the same time. Hopefully most of these pictures are self explanatory.

Thanks! I love having them out in the shop with me. It is their incentive to get their homework done, so they can be in the shop with dad. It is my therapy for long days at work.

I finally ordered and just received my floor panels and a few other parts from Guy. They are beautiful!

I am getting all of the pitted and rust hole areas fixed by cutting them out and replacing them with new metal. I had to fix a portion of the passengers side frame rail to get ready for the passengers side floor pan to go in. The top portion had rusted and pitted from years of standing water in the floorboards. The bottoms of the frame rails were solid everywhere except for the location where the transmission crossmember held water too.

Looks good! For those that do not know, the battery floor is not ours and we do not make at this time.

I got my battery floor from Fil Bonica, although I don't know what source he used.

They are the ones from MD Juan. Last I knew, Army Jeep Parts has them.

Sorry for any confusion about where the battery floor comes from. It was sourced from Army Jeep Parts, and it is made by MD Juan.

Sorry Guy, I never thought when I took the picture that it would cause people to be excited that you were making battery floors. I know we would all rather buy all our m151 parts from you!

Folks I can't tell you how happy I am with Guy's products! The fit and finish details are awesome. His design also gives you extra material to allow you the best fit on the floor pans. My straight M151 is slowly becoming solid again.
