YJkid the Jeep looks great!

I just came across your posts today. Started from the beginning and skimmed everything. I just bought an 88 YJ with basically zero modifications done to it other than the engine (2000 6cyl added by the PO). Your posts have inspired me on a whole bunch of projects I'm going to tackle.

I like how you painted your dashboard. Never would have thought of that. I actually was considering replacing all the different parts since they are pretty scuffed up. How has your paint job held up over the year or so? Same goes for your rims. Has the paint chipped or anything? Any advice to share on this?

Keep up the good work!

All the paint jobs ive done have held up just fine. Just use good brands of paint and do the prep work correctly its a good thing to be freaking out when doing the prep work I sand rinsed with water let dry tack clothed and then used duplicolor prep wipes primed everything with duplicolor plastic primer for the dash and regular gray primer for the rims the rims i used duplicolor wheel coat in graphite then i used duplicolor clear wheel coating. and the parts are in! I'll get my brother to send me some pictures later on today.

I like what you did with the dash, I wish I had my jeep when you were doing it. I am 2/3 of the way finished painting my dash covers tan, they were black. I am keeping the dash pad black and the covers will be tan for a mix of the two colors. We could of just traded, lol. Looks great!!!

Thanks guys, im the guy who likes his jeep to look like nothing special but once you start really looking at it you see all the work thats been done to it. And update on the 700r4 rebuild with the adapting kit. My brother was getting to work and then realized he needs a specialty tool so now I'm ordering a seal installer for him and hes going to git er done.

So there has been no progress. My brother is busy as hell with work and is moving to arizona for bmw technical training. So now I'm just sitting on the other end of the country saving money to send home and have someone else rebuild it

Update im sorry for the lack of pictures and updates but the navy likes to keep me busy with school and its hard to get pictures from new york to flordia. But ill try to get one from a buddy of the adapting kit and trans tomorrow. The 700r4 is getting built starting tomorrow. Its getting the adapting kit installed all new clutches and steels, bands, corvette servo kit, boring the piston, sunshell, booster springs and a shift kit. My wallet hates me.

My wheels have been through a new york winter with a buttload of salt and they look like I just painted them yesterday according to my mom. Its all in the prep work the quality of paint you use and the steps you do it in. For instance I started out sanding all the corrision off and basically stipped each wheel. Next I rinsed each of really good with water let them air dry then took a tac cloth to each one and after that a prepwipe to each one. Then after all that shot three coats of duplicolor gray primer. Then 3 coats of duplicolor graphite wheelcoating not regular paint wheel coating and touched up where it needed to be done. After that I layed down three coats of duplicolor clear wheelcoating and let them dry in a space heated to 75 degrees with very low humidity for 24 hours and they turned out to be perfect. It takes a lot of time effort and patience to do a good paint job on anything but when your done it shows and is well worth it. Attention to detail my friend.

So a bit of a update not much of one still. Called the transmission shop they ordered the corvette servo shift kit sunshell booster spring and all the clutches steels bands all the good stuff said it should be there reall soon and theyll get started as soon as they can. Also called up my new group of favorite people at Novak adapt about getting on of there aluminum radlock radiators eletric fan with aluminum integrated shroud and controller for it. Will be ordering that up next paycheck at the end of the month. Just need to order headers, fuel pressure regulator and the typical odds ands ends....spark plugs wires carb gasket air cleaner serpentine belt cooling lines tranny lines exhaust piping. You know the small stuff. Taking fifteen days of leave in seven weeks so I'm going to try to have it all together and ready for the road in the first week!
