Yes by a few of the bolts on the windshield pillar. The tubes are part. You can drive, just don't wreck... lol. The windshield will stay in place unless the bolts are rusted off, but the windshield will fold very easily if you would roll.

Well another issue I just noticed is the seat belts are attached to the cage. So i can't take it out.

But I created another problem for myself. I decided to take the passenger belt loose so I could tie it up out of the way and let it wind up a little by mistake. In trying to get it to release so I could reel some belt out, i thought it would be a good idea to take that white cap off to try and get it to disconnect slightly.

So the spring went flying out and now i can't figure out how to get it would up right to reinstall it. I got it back in but don't know how to get it would tight again. Any ideas how? Or should I just take it to the dealer and have another belt put in when I am done with all this? I think i cracked some plastic pieces and I don't want that belt to be unsafe.

Yeah i shouldn't have, the white cap very clearly said "do not remove" but here I go thinking I can fix it so I took it off. Can't win for losing, Try to fix one problem and make another one.

Looks like i will just have to bit the bullet on this one and order a replacement belt. Fortunately quadratec has them at least, and in different colors. Does $170 sound too high, anybody know of other places to look for them?

I guess I will try calling the dealer too but they are usually higher.

Look for someone parting out a TJ on the forum, or just find a way to fix it.

Well the cap is plastic and the ears that the screws go through are cracked. I don't wanna risk it coming apart. My wife likes to ride with me, and is pregnant now. The last thing I need is something happening to them because I put something together wrong. I'm just gonna hope I can find one parted out or just order one.

Seatbelt Solutions 9706P-1000 - Front Push Button 3 Point Retractable Belts for 97-06 Jeep« Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec Looks like that price includes both belts. That's actually not too bad in that case. I had to have the dealer put a new passenger belt in my chevy once because the dog chewed through it, $350 for just the one installed. So $170 for both don't seem that bad to me

Well damn the torpedoes (seat belt in this case) full speed ahead. It's already broke so I'll figure it out later. Got it all sanded, taped, and ready to go. Just waiting on my buddy to bring a compressor part i need. Since I obviously can't drive this thing to go get my own parts. I owe him a 6 pack or something after this project.

Well got a little bit splotchy in a few spots. and a few overspray areas but overall looks pretty good. Going to do my rocker panel stripes and front bumper today.

Just some observations I had though. Do Not let it tip upside down. The gun doesn't seal perfect and some will drip out and make big splotches. However, wear some mechanix gloves that you dont mind getting a bit messy, and if your quick enough you can spread those big puddles around and then spray a quick coat over them they wont be very noticeable.

Yeah the gun has a hole so air can get into the container so it doesn't form a vacuum an it lets the liner out. Down side is the leaks. Yeah throw some pics up when it's drying.

It's back in the garage now. I may get pics tomorrow in better light. I did the rocker panel striping too but it's black liner on a black jeep so it may not show too well in the pics.

The most fun part of all this was getting it back in the garage. Manual jeep, no seats, and you can't touch the floor cuz the liner is still wet. To make things more fun the driveway is at an incline, and I can't ask my pregnant wife to come help push. So a hold my beer and watch this moment ensues. I basically used the rollcage as a brace for my back, and something to hang onto monkey bar style. Some acrobatic balance, and a little feathering of the clutch and I was able to drive it in.

No clue. I'd just play around a while. In these times google is your friend.

So i found another thread about it. Wish i had read before i dissasembled and broke mine.

Anyway, thanks to Jerry for this tidbit. But apparently there is a little ball type mechanism that rolls out to lock the belt when it is not perfectly level. It is not inertia based like some belts.

Simply grab the belt just above the reel assembly, let it hang and it will level itself out like a pendulum. Shake it up and down gently a few times and it will start falling. Once it gets out far enough you can step on the belt to prevent it going back in. then bolt it in real quick.

Of coure if you tape the belt up real good before you take it out in the first place you won't have to worry about any of this.

Hope the pic shows up okay. But i did the rocker stripes in bedliner too. Turned out pretty good. Took forever to tape everything off good though. I also just continued up and over the door sills too for protection when the dogs jump in/out.

Thanks, i'm not crawling rocks with this thing. So the bedliner should be good enough to protect from brush and tree limbs and what not. Plus it covered up some gouges that were already there.

Now i just gotta re paint the flares with some better stuff to get em black again.

This thread is perfect, I have the exact same color TJ and was debating how the black interior would look, and apparently, it looks great!

also with that exterior stripe. you can use the bottom of the door to keep a level line. And if you look at the back, use the bottom of the tailgate for a level line. I wrapped the stripe around the back as well. Looks to be level with the bottom of the doors so you get one uniform stripe going around. Doesn't cover up as far as corner guards would but it's something.

GS, and Viper,

I am finally getting around to spraying my jeep. I have taken notes i've read on here;

-50-70 psi
-suspend wires in the air via tape to roll bar
-1'-2' distance.
-Spray footwells when bottle is a little less full (leakage from top)

I wanted to get any comments I could on the conditions in which I will be spraying my jeep tub. The temperature today will be near 47 degrees. The Jeep has been in an auto garage, heated, for the last few months. The heat I imagine is turned off at night. The past few days the humidity has been at near 80% with daily temps getting up to mid to high 50s.

I estimate the jeep tub temp will be around 50 degrees. This is not ideal I agree however i haven't touched my jeep in so long I am tired of waiting.

My question really is, will this affect anything other then the time it will take to adhere?

Where you may have waited an hour or so between coats, I've read others only wait 10 - 20 minutes. I am planning on giving mine about 25-30 between coats. I will be starting at 1pm so it will be peak of the humidity / heat for the day. I plan to be done no later than 8pm. I will not be driving this jeep until at least middle of next week.

So time to adhere is not an issue for me. I just want to know if you feel there will be any other drawback to spraying the jeep when it is not 70-90 degrees outside.

You can see most of my questions and concerns here Raptor Lining

Thanks in advance, wish me luck.

The only concern I would have is how well it will adhere to the metal and cure. I'm not sure how a low temp will affect that. I think you will be alright but can't really be certain. I think 50 will be warm enough.

Thank you for such a fast response!

I too think that it will be alright. Perhaps that first coat I will let stay longer. I'll give it near 40+ minutes to be certain. That will be hard as its not like i'm at home. I'm at a body shop I'll have to go annoy some mechanics for a few minutes.

Getting nervous as the time approaches. I've never sprayed anything other than rattle cans.

No problem. Have you searched around an is there a minimum temp listed for it? I believe you'll be okay between coats at 30 mins and the cure time will just be extended.

Searching the interwebz all i can really find is everyone elses accounts of using it. Can't seem to find a corporate website with FAQs at all. But thank you good sir. Good thing its not my DD I will let it sit in there another week if I must.

EDIT:

I found this at least. http://www.u-pol.co.uk/documents/dat...RLB-TDS-US.pdf

Quote:
SHOOT - Remove cap and attach to the U-POL Schutz gun with air pressure 2.76 - 4.82 BAR (40-70 PSI). Apply to truck bed with an even sweeping motion to obtain the required texture.
Subsequent coat(s) can be applied observing a 60 minute flash off period between coat(s).
Future touch-ups can be carried out after simply cleaning and degreasing the surface.
Issue 4/2013 2
Reducing the flash off times, excessive film build and/or reduced temperatures will retard the drying times.
Cleaning
All equipment should be thoroughly cleaned with gun wash immediately after use.
IMPORTANT
Do not use in extreme cold or hot temperatures. Ideal application temperature is 68║F (20║C) with humidity of less than 60%.
Do not place heavy loads on the surface until the truck bed liner is fully cured.

I think you'll be alright especially since you are giving it so long to cure.
