The above transformation took place from 3/19 till 9/6.  I did all the work by my self, with an occasional additional hand to help hold or guide as needed.

 

The work took 440 Mechanical Hours (excluding re-paints and not including part searches, ordering or trips to pick them up), and was done over 90 Days, across 20 weeks.

 

The Jeep was returned to Phil at a party on Saturday September the 7th, and he had not seen the Final color or assembled Jeep prior to the unveiling (he had not seen any of the pictures in the (Paint and Final Assembly page linked above).
