One of the benefits of the Willys Jeep Project is learning to use new tools and develop skills. In the process of rebuilding the jeep, I have learn to work with sheet metal and weld.
Below is a result of those skills for side projects like installing a protective bumper for my Ford. The front of the truck is all plastic, and I wanted to install some steel to protect the front. Picked the bumper up on craigslist, and after a few hours of metal work, it is installed.
Could have not done this if not for the Jeep Project.
