I dont know man. Sans Panties looks pretty sweet. When you order it make sure that you get extra rollers. Prep is also extremely important. You will be half a day just to prep. If you dont scuff it enough you could lose very large patches when it rubs against something. If you take it too deep though you will need to prime it. It is a very large amount of work to properly do the exterior, but worth it.

Great build. Nice work, I think bit looks way better than before. I like the idea of doing the exterior in monstaliner too. As for color, that's a personal choice.

Question, what did you do to the inside of the doors/liner? Did you just paint that or monstaliner that too? Mine look crappy and I'm considering painting them.

Sans Panties is like a gray color, i want the jeep to stand out, but I will definitely take my time and do it right like you said. I know you did a very well job on your jeep and could use a few pointers like rolling techniques and coating when i get around to actually painting it.

I chose to paint the door panels with duplicolor vinyl spray. They have them at pepboys and its around 7.50 a can. It actually stuck very well after i cleaned them thoroughly. I would recommend using it because its on the interior and barely touched by the sun or anything. However on vinyl seats, you need to do several coats to keep it from flaking off.

Any Ideas for the front bumper? I was thinking about cutting the sides of the bumper and leaving just the middle section. Has anyone seen that before?

Are there any good threads about mounts on the hood?

What kind of mounts on the hood are you looking for? As for cutting the bumper, yeah, most people who offroad cut away where it blocks the front of the tires. Either that or they get an aftermarket bumper where it is not a concern. It only matters if you dont have a lot of lift though. That way when you push it up against something you can get the tire to climb over it. Otherwise your bumper will hit it.

Do you plan on lifting that thing, or are you going to keep it more daily driver quality?

I was thinking about a high jack mount or mounts for lights. I kind of like the hella lights on the brackets on the hinges next to the windshield. But it would be cool to have bar lights on the middle of the hood as well.

good point with the whole getting the tire over stuff... Eventually I will take the 3" body lift down to a 1 or 2 and do a SOA with prob a 2 inch lift. but i got time to think about it.

These are the mounts with an extra hole for a padlock.

1987 2006 YJ TJ Jeep Wrangler Locking Hi Lift Farm Jack Hood Hinge Mount Bracket | eBay

Light mount: 1976 1995 Jeep Wrangler CJ YJ Upper Windshield Mount Light Brackets for LED HID | eBay

Make sure you know what you want with the light mount. A lot of people myself included relocate their mirrors to the windshield hinges together so they have mirrors and are legal without doors. Not all hinge light mounts work with the mirror relocation brackets though.

Just a heads up on SOA, it is the most expensive lift you can do to a YJ.

I don't know about it being the most expensive lift you can do to a YJ. I am currently in the middle of a custom long arm four link build for my YJ. I am pretty sure I will exceed the typical cost for a SOA by a dollar or two. I agree that it is not a cheap route if done correctly. It can be done extremely cheaply if you hack everything together and enjoy living on the edge a little every time you drive it.

It should go without saying I was talking about leaf springs. When you get that custom it isnt even a YJ anymore if you ask most people. I may do that myself one day just to get maximum flex and droop in the rear though. My front performs fine, but if I do the back I will do the front.

Anyone got any good ideas for the wheels? Should I keep them chrome or should I go Black?

You know what they say...Once you go black, you never go back!

No, not really a way around spending that much money unless you plan on trailoring it to the trails. The cost comes down to keeping it road worthy and safe over 35mph. Also, you have to address axle wrap, which costs about $500 or so in itself.

If i do black wheels, I might as well paint the whole damn thing black haha

Im a little hesitant whether or not i should do it. Might have to photoshop to get a better picture of what itll look like.

do you know any good products or techniques to make them black?
