I've been busy with other things, but found some time to work the Jeep body. I'm attempting to get the new doors to fit.

I really like this one! Any plans to make the lights work?

I plan on getting as many lights working as possible. But it might be a little too difficult to get the wrangler bumper fogs to work.

3D printed winch painted and wrapped in "cable". The chrome wench bars were made from a paperclip smashed on the ends in a vice.

Looks great!!!!! I have one of these models sitting on a shelf, might have to do the same thing but without the 4 lights on top. On the bumper fogs, I made little 'L' shaped brackets from some sheet brass to mount the stock Tamiya fog lamps out where they should be on the JP jeep. The housing is a bit on the large size for the thinner profile fog lamps, but close enough and they are designed to be lighted. Cant wait to see how this all turns out. Will the 3d parts be added to a shop like shapeways for others to purchase? Mike
