That is the STUFF! Just make sure the plastic parts are DEAD CLEAN. No grease oil, any kind of silicone products. I am going to do the fender flares soon, I already bought the Fusion, Black Satin, I did the front bumper in the same, looks AWESOME

Cool

let me know how this goes for you, thinking of getting a softtopper. It's quite a commitment getting anything posted to Australia, would love some feedback.

I hope not! Last 3 cars where 09 WRX, 11 WRX and 12 Regal GS. The WRX's both were over 400HP and 500TQ. I got the GS for luxury sport and since there's no market I knew I couldn't spend a lot. Hoping I don't spend a lot on the jeep.

A little change up today. Not what I am doing to my TJ but what the Stormcrow is going to do to\for me.... Freezing fog, freezing rain, good chance for 2 to 4 inches of snow today... And, I HAVE to get to the store to open up at 9AM MST. I hope I named her well and she helps me trough the storm.

Installed a rear axle fluid overflow/catchcan/vent. At least now I know the pinion gear is getting proper lube dispite the high pinion angle. And don't have to worry about blowing gear fluid out of the vent tube when it heats up and expands. All in all, the top of my vent tube increased about 6" so now it's pretty damn close to the height of the front vents.
