Took my doors off to try out my homemade mirror. Works great





Got a pic of the lights I mounted over the weekend.


And last, but not least, I finally got my damned stickers

Where did you get these/how well do they work? I hear very mixed reviews on them.

It's been raining and my soft top frame is broken so it sat forlornly in its little garage space

Looking forward to the after pics, if you have a chance can you post pics of where you mounted the ballast? I have a set of DDMs and H4 housings sitting in the garage waiting on me to finish my aux box.

Good lookin' seat as well!

No no no. I grew some grass under it!

Thanks, first time with a spray gun and it turned out a lot better than any of my previous rattle can jobs. If you have access to a decent air supply I would highly recommend using a cheap hvlp gun (mine was $35) rather than buying a pile of rattle cans.

Filled in some bracket holes the PO had put in the hard top. Used JB weld. Setting up now. Will sand tonight. Let it harden for a few days. If it looks good, I will do the others (two more brackets) and then paint the whole top.

Okay, maybe this should be yesterday but it was too dark by the time I finished for pictures. Installed JKS 1.25" BL along with JKS 1" MML. Got rid of the TC drop. Better drive shaft angle than before

Well...Me and a buddy made some rock sliders a few weeks ago. Today I pulled them off, sprayed them with rattle can bed liner and used silicon around the edges to keep water out.

Tonight the wife and I swapped out the gauge lights for LEDS. Unfortunately one of the LEDs I ordered isn't working so have to wait for another to come in the mail. i knew to buy an extra bulb lol Oh well

But the blue looks great! Matches the head unit!
