Yesterday, put the hardtop away and strapped on the soft top. It only took me a bout a half hour to remember how to put it back up at the end of the day

cleaned all the electrical connectors under the hood and applied de-electric grease. Hoping it will fix my crazy speedo issue.

I put on Black Magic brakes and rotors today!

Before...


After...


They were super easy to install, break in was easy, and they are amazing!

I figured a little time spent with a cut off and a drill press would be more fun than going through the process of gluing to the windshield every couple months
Now that is very cool. I am going to steal this for when I install my GNTX 221 mirror with lights, auto dim, and temp.
Right now my stocker is screwed into the bottom part of the windshield under the footmans loop.

Not sure... maybe try it in an inconspicuous spot?

I like how the bumpers did not make the rear sag too much but made the wheel wells get filled in more.

They look good, but isn't what you said ^ just saying the rear end sags?

Taxed and licensed it. That really sucked. At least it's done now.

Monstalined the inside but didn't get the outcome everyone else has been getting. Put on the first coat fine then put the lid on and waited 3 hours. 85 degree day so plenty of heat and sunshine. I mixed the liner again but the top had already started becoming solid so it put pieces of chunks in the can. Nothing I could do so I laid it down. Now it's more of a rough texture then an orange peel look. Either way its better then scratched up paint

Before




After

Looked at some other installs and same thing. They should sell the gallon kit in 2 half gallons. That would cure the problem I bet.

Are you repainting the flairs or ditch them because of the tire size?

Didn't do much the jeep but start gutting it to redo the bed liner. I got to play with this Ferrari 275 GTB. It is worth a little over $1,000,000. There was an Excalibur laying around as well. Also if any of you are fans of the TV show Fast N' Loud I got to poke around the F40 almost completed. Can't give details about it I had to swear to secrecy. Haha

Started disassembly process to install 1 inch body lift, transfer case shifter bracket, 1 inch motor mount lift, heavy duty block brackets, and tummy tucker skid plate. Hopefully will have a good day tomorrow and get most of it done.
