Ok awesome! I've used the krylon fusion on my mirrors, sail panels and milk jugs. Looks great on them. So hey, Maybe I can figure something out for the door. Thanks alot bro!

I shaved my front fenders before it started to rain today.
Removed rear fenders back in early January. And added 2 KC Hilites, Pro Comp Steering Box Skidplate and some others. Saving up for some New Rims and Tires.

Yeah I don't really like nalgenes. I use them when hiking but they are hard to walk and drink. I have a little thing in one that let's you though. My camelback bottle is better tho lol

Took a nice spin the Jeep, loving the toplessness, and picked up some chow for my goldens and filled the fuel tank. Glad the fuel prices are coming down a little. Oops, jinxed it. My Jeep was dirty and water spotted after several rain showers Thursday, so used the Californa Duster to make it clean again, in about two minutes.

Finally got around to the next step on finishing my BCC rock sliders. Wet sanded the POR-15 finish for bite, and sprayed three costs of Rustoleum Truck Bed Liner on the sliders, inside reinforcing brackets, and TMR tie-ins. They all look very cool. Next step...removing all the flares for trimming and painting. Next weeks project.

Painted rear bumper with Rustoleum bed liner, I need a bigger torx head to remove the front before i can paint it.

I also attempted to dye my faded rollbar covers back to black with Rit fabric dye, the dye was a messy disaster and it didn't even work. I should've just used the flat black Krylon

I went to save her from a thunderstorm last night and dropped the passenger side door right on my foot! I guess that was her way of telling me she didn't want them back on lol. Foots a little swollen but I think I'll live lol.

The brackets are from Warrior Products, and are mirror relocating too

The wiring came with the lights for mine, i took the wipers off and removed the cowl, routed the wires then re-fitted the cowl, i fitted the switch just under the gauges next to the steering column, you can just see it in this pic
