I cleaned the interior, Pulled the aftermarket A/c unit out, Changed hoses and belts, Painted the fender flairs and side steps and the bezle trim black, Next is the brackets for doors, hood and winshield, Oh installed a new cd player and blew out on eof the front speakers, This is all in the last month.

Finally got a day to spend on (and in) my 95:

1) removed all the carpeting - what a mess under that!
2)Remounted my upper driving lights from the windshield mount to the hood hinges, rewired them, and new temporary switches
3)Cleaned up the rats nest of wires from the radio(s)
4)moved my sat radio antenna from the cowl to the rollbar and ran the wires under the padding
5)mounted an old ammo box under the hood for silly tools
6)Fixed my tailgate latch (rod came off)
7)Fixed my tailgate lock (rod came off)
8)put my dash back in - I'll need a few more months to build the new dash and collect the new gauges.
9)Added a Coors Light bottle opener to the drivers side fender
10)cut a small piece of metal and riveted it in to the door - the catch for the stop had broken off - pulled right out - so I pop-riveted in a new piece of steel, then the loop back on. Works fine now - doesn't bang the mirror anymore!

11)11)11)11)11)11)11)11) and then tried out the bottle opener!!! It works, too!!!!

If you still have the hoses and all the connectors for the AC I'm interested. They want 80 bucks for them online for a few feet of hoses and some connectors.

I just used the duplicolor on mine a couple weeks ago. I like it. It may look a little weird after the first coat, but after the second it looks really nice. You will notice that as you are using it, it starts to dry out and just be that gritty stuff in the can but I just added a little bit of water to it every now and then and it worked great.

Newbie here...
I finally bought a front driveshaft for my YJ and installed it today after new u-joints and fresh paint. Now I have to make a posi-lok for the front axle since I removed all the vacuum crap when I did the 4.0/5 spd conversion this past spring.
I also picked up a set of 2004 aluminum TJ wheels and 31/10.50 BFG A/T from a co-worker who is trading in the TJ on a new Wrangler.

Put the first coat on today, took a long time prepping the surfaces (lots of knooks and crannies) red tub bled thru a little but second coat should take care of that. I will post pics when done. Lift kit (4") with 33's goes in later this week if work allows.
