Firewall Progress

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

The warming weather has got me busy, but I was still able to get some progress on the firewall covers. Between a small sledge hammer and my big vice, I was able to bend the steel into shape.

Here are my templates.


Here’s an example of the steel. I was able to cut this out using my plasma cutter (Yeswelder 55DS). It was my first attempt at using it, but it worked pretty well.


Here’s it after bending.


The tabs need some adjusting.  Otherwise ,these two covers should work fine.

1967 CJ-5 Corvallis, OR BaT Auction


Maury shared this nice looking CJ-5 at a Bring-a-Trailer auction.


“This 1967 Jeep CJ-5 is finished in white over black vinyl upholstery and powered by a 225ci Dauntless V6 mated to a three-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. It is equipped with a black soft top and doors, along with a roll bar, a Badlands winch, a spare tire carrier, a Hi-Lift jack, 16″ steel wheels, Warn manually locking front hubs, and a K&N air filter. The truck was acquired by the seller in November 2021, and subsequent work reportedly included rebuilding the cylinders heads and a valve job in addition to a refresh of the steering system and replacement of the water pump, fuel pump, and carburetor. This CJ-5 is now offered at no reserve with owner’s and service manuals, partial service records, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.”

Blocked or Denied Comment Screen


Anyone run into the following message after trying to comment?


Apparently, that’s a new feature for one of WordPress’ security plugins (or new to me). Essentially, as I understand it, if too many bots attack the user login screen, a blanket “citadel” is activated, blocking comments (and probably other things). I too had problems trying to comment just now, and figured out that the “citadel” was blocking me. So, if you see that, feel free to email me and I’ll get it fixed.

Reshaping The Firewall

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

I spent the last couple of days working on the firewall. This is obviously a key element for assembling other items, such as the steering, brake/clutch pedals, gas pedal, etc.

I should begin by noting that we have a new name and theme for the jeep: LEFTOVERS. It’s a food-ish theme that kind of goes with Lost Biscuit. I like that it isn’t a particularly serious name. And, it seems appropriate given I am scavenging two former racing jeeps, but a few parts off of Biscuit, as well as some other random parts.

I saved the original firewall from the yellow-bodied jeep, but it wasn’t in the best shape. I also wasn’t sure if I wanted to use it anyone, because my firewall area includes several rollbar tubes that aren’t present in the yellow-bodied build. Here are some pics of it on the old jeep (btw, I’ve been terrible at taking pics during this build):



I felt the deciding factor would be how well a template I planned to create for the firewall would overlay the old firewall. If close enough, I’d make the old firewall work (again, leftover theme).

Below is my really fancy paper template (I won’t be using the aluminum cover over the gear box .. I was just experimenting with that).


The first thing I realized was that I would need to split the old firewall in two halves in order to install it and have it fit over the roll bars. Once I was reasonably happy with the template, I laid if over the firewall (no pics of that), only to learn that I would need to flatten most of the existing firewall and rebend it; not an easy task!

Fortunately, the other day I bought a 20-ton press from Harbor Freight (I needed it to fix a neighbor’s plow). I used the press to press the bends relatively flat. Then, I cut the firewall in half and began the process of re-bending the firewall to the specs I needed, then cutting out areas to fit one over the roll bars.

Here’s an example of the passenger side after the top part was was bent flat:


Another obstacle I had to consider was the distributor at the rear of the engine. I needed room to be able to remove that if necessary. Here’s a pic of the two haves bolted to the crossmember I made from spare square tubing. It’s not perfect, but it will look alright once I get the paint off of it and clean up everything else. Besides, it will be hidden under the cowl.


With the cowl in place, I began playing with the steering column. I never liked the way the steering column in the original green-black jeep wiggled. The yellow jeep had a much more solid setup, so I  will try to use it. It will need a new steering wheel, as that was damaged when the yellow jeep was wrecked.

2023-03-23-firewall-4 2023-03-23-firewall-3

Next up will be getting the clutch/brake assembly attached, build the bracket for the clutch slave cylinder, build the covers that go over the center portion of the firewall, and add a few attach points along the side for the firewall. Still plenty to do!

Andy shared this lengthened CJ-2A. It looks about the same length as the CJ-2Ls. It’s just rare to see one this far east.

“Up for sale is my 1948, CJ2L (cj2a just longer). This was in the same family since the 50s, was on a private ranch. It has 14 inch wheels, and a stretch from the dealership. I purchased this as a back up plan for a couple trips this coming year incase my other jeep didnt get finished. It looks like I’ll finish my other Willys in time so it’s up for sale. I have a clean and clear title, it runs and drives great has a brand new Joe Jennings rebuilt carb on it, needs some brake work (personally I would do the disk brake conversion- about $450)”
