    Good deal. That will help keep everything squared up.
    Since your Jeep was a radio rig to start with, it would be great to get up some gear to operate from.

    The threaded hole on the floor panel should be for the driver's seat.

    Well, if the river dont rise and the dam dont break today is the day for test fit on actual frame.. then welding will commence.

    then off the temp frame, any more welding to be done, and then welds cleaned and bottom of entire chasis primed, then undercoated and then finally on the frame with the motor and all......

    Channel Fever

    There is a condition that infects a ship in the last days of a long deployment.

    If often shows up as little tasks going undone, some tasks being done a little carelessly and most often as sleeplessness and a lot of people sitting around the Mess deck late at night playing cards and making going home plans.

    We call that affliction "Channel Fever", as in the Channel that leads into home port..

    Late stages in a Jeep restoration can generate much the same symptoms. I second the "Be Careful" notion.
