Now it's more of a rough texture then an orange peel look. Either way its better then scratched up paint

Man that looks good!

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

Well my Dad happens to own a transporting company. We specialize in exotic and rare vehicles. We also happen to have a contract with Lamborghini and Ferrari for all of their road side calls in our surrounding states. My Dad also has known the Collins brothers since he was a kid. So long story short we just happen to know people with really deep pockets and cool cars haha. And this is what my Dad pulls the trailer with.

Multi quoting, you should learn how to do it (hint, use the button with a quote symbol and a plus sign then on the last post you want to quote hit the "quote" button)

Drove mine into work with this crappy rain again, really want to take my uppers back out, stupid weather.

Took the top off, like completely off. I put it down and didn't like the way it was sitting on the PO's rear speaker installation (crappy IMHO). I plan on removing the rear speakers and fabricating a speaker bar once the rain stops for more than a day... Will post pics after lunch!

I was the same. Eight years later, finally got a set pieced together. So winter will be hard top and full doors, the rest of the year will be soft top and half doors!

Ordered my Rampage Bowless top.
I'm thinking about selling the soft top I have now....which is a Bestop. Only thing is, the drivers side rear window zipper has about a 1-2 inch piece missing. The top is in good shape other than that.

Thumbs up Bed Lined the trim!

My fairly new to me (first one - always wanted one!) Jeep got a makeover for $7.99! The fenders came out awesome!

A couple hints -

1. No need to remove the fenders - just get a package of the larger index cards at the dollar store and put them behind the flares.. You can always add tape and some newspaper to cover more area...

2. If you sand - make sure you finish up with 220 otherwise the marks will show through..

3. If you have what looks to be spills - ( please see my before picture ) it looks like maybe brake fluid caused some running of the original paint - you need to sand this down completely - the bed liner would not cover..

By the time I got to the last fender I was a pro.. I should have started with the passenger side... LOL

I also did the front light trim (bezels?) - I am addicted.. those look awesome and menacing! Thanks to all the inspiration from everyone on this site!!!

Looks great man. Unfortunately I already pulled mine off to paint. Index card idea would have been a timesaver

Watching my Jeep sit in the parking lot while I'm stuck behind a desk. And it's a perfect day to ride with the top off, of course.
