I'm interested in how that contact paper stuff turned out on your glove box and console. Got any pics?

If you use the mobile app, you can upload from your phone directly to the forum without the need for a photo hosting site. Mostly all I have ever used in a couple of years of using this forum is the mobile app, with the last year or so being exclusively my phone. It's so much easier and convenient that doing it with a computer.

My photo storage on here is full I don't want to delete any old ones because people might need them. I gotta buy the membership I guess...

Ok there is the pics of the arrow antenna and digital camo contact paper. The contact paper is actually like duct tape material. It was 2 bucks for each sheet the size of a piece of paper from Joann's. You can see the glove box that I covered and I did the interior door handles. I was really just experimenting with the stuff but it turned out well and sticks very good. I only bought two sheets but I am going back to get more and do it up better this time.

Made a quick theft deterrent for my trunk. It at least keeps people from walking by and reaching in.

^^Nice!. Been contemplating doing the same. I'd make mine lower to make sure the top fits when I fold it though.

Not custom but here's a picture of the one I ordered from either Qtec or 4wd. They both have it I just ordered from whoever had it cheapest.

Here's a post I posted in the what did you do to your Tj thread...

Bought a homelink garage door opener off ebay

I'm putting them on the console behind the shifter

Marked and cut out the hole

Had to sand the back of the console some to thin it enough to allow the buttons to lock back together with the housing

Installed the buttons and used a little gorilla glue to keep the box in place

I think that's a rugged ridge, I've heard mixed reviews about it, only bad thing being that the threads or something of the sorts are loose and doesn't hold up well?

Had mine almost 2 years now. Still as tight as the day I put it on. It's not loose. What people may be describing as loose would be if you grab the extinguisher and try to move it, it will actually move the roll bar padding and everything. If you have it strapped on tight of course. I got mine solid. No movement in the extinguisher or extinguisher mount itself. I'd recommend it if someone were to ask.

Had an extra can, and got carried away with Rustoleum Bedliner this week. Love the new look.

Mirrors were bad, headlight bezels needed it, gas cap was gross before, and the fender flaires are like night and day.

Much more to come when I can get more Berliner!

No pics yet. I took it off then immediately put the top back on. When I take the top off again I'll get some. You can just look up pics without rollbar pads/cover. The only things is the end of the zippers had corroded together so I had to cut them off with wire cutters. I'll keep the cover for a while, but I don't think I'll put it back on.
