After getting a roady and $1050 later, i may or may not have taken it out for my first fun in the mud.. lol

Nice 97
That's a rare colour too - Citron.
Similar to (and often confused with) the later 'Rescue Green' on the JKs.
I've only seen one TJ that colour.

The paint i used was a bedliner made by "Dupli-colour".
Looks good as a finished product but pretty much mostly scraped off where i hadn't primed it first haha...

Then decided seeings how i wasted my time with the tub and couple cans of bedliner for no reason, i'd better do it properly this time on the rest of the interior floor..
Ripped out all the insides and sanded and cleaned it all up,
Primed the lot in a few coats of black kill rust,
Then painted with a few coats of bedliner.
Pretty happy with how it came up i think.

This is the finished product with the bedliner.
while i was at it, i resprayed the console and the half windows.
then to try and get a little quietness about the tj, glued in some sound deadening carpet where i could in the console itself, and where it sits on the body.

Couple weeks passed and i couldn't work out why the left wiper sprayer stopped working and why the washer bttle would empty so quickly.. lol found the problem
a tee piece in the wiper hose decided it would break off for no reason.

After a couple trial and error replacements of the windscreen to hardtop seals to stop the hurricane coming at your face when driving, i decided to take the hardtop off one last time and put another strip of 25mm high density stick on foam from clark rubber along the hardtop itself aswell as glue carpet along inside of the roof.
Unfortunately i managed to hit the rear hardtop window into the wall while taking it off and exploded it into five million pieces...!?
so ive been searching far and wide to source a secondhand glass or a new glass for a reasonable price but all i can come up with is cheapest $750 for the glass alone in melbourne..
if anyone has or can point me in the direction of a cheap rear 97 hardtop window that would be greatly appreciated!!
