Hinges....

Hey Tob...it's been raining all night and day here, but I did snap a photo of the hinges for ya.

I'll resume the bumpers this weekend, most likely. Feeling a bit better today.

Pat

Quick question, is you Jeep logo on the grill chrome or black? It looks black in the picture, but I am not 100% sure.

The Jeep emblem came chrome. I plasti-dipped it to make it black.

I didn't take mine off. I plasti-dipped the emblem with it on the grille. There are a lot of writeups about it on here, or you can find plenty of videos on you-tube. That stuff is pretty neat.

Stickers

Haven't been doing anything with this since last weekend. Been sick and working. Now, I feel MUCH better. Also........

Got me some stickers in from Pixiedecals. I'm debadging, and will put the stickers on this weekend...pics will be up when done.

Also gonna try to squeeze in some bumper work too, and maybe plastidip the wheels. I actually like the factory wheels, so I'll just get some spidertrax spacers when it's tire time.

Hope my Jeepers up north are getting a break this weekend from the crazy cold.

Pat

Did some work on the front bumper today. Had family from out of town in, so it was a juggling act.

Anyway...I'd say the fabrication is about 75% complete. Most of the more difficult stuff is done.

Didn't get the stickers on or the wheels plasti-dipped. It was raining first part of the day. I'll get that probably this week sometime.

Pat,
Keep the ideas flowing! There are a bunch of other Anvil guys thinking along your lines!
Thanks

Thanks DS. Can't wait to rap up both bumper builds and start on the fender flares.

Removed the factory stickers from Grey Matter today after work. I have two flags, but one ia reversed....so I need to get a replacement that isn't.

Also plasti dipped the spare. Will finish the other wheels by the weekend, and hopefully my front bumper too.

Haven't had much time at all to do anything to the Jeep. Got some work done on the front bumper (welded on the winch plate and some gussets).

Did find time to plastidip the wheels black. I like the factory wheels...both aesthetically and on the wallet.

Bumper shouldn't take much longer.

Time has been a precious commodity lately. Finally finished phase 1 of my bumper build. Here it is on the Jeep. I'm definitely gonna make a bull bar and weld it on soon. Gonna get a winch too.

Just mounted my new 20" LED lightbar. Need to wire it up when I get a chance.

Thanks. Did the bends with a torch and a woodworking bench. Can't do personal work at work anymore (someone abused the privilege).

Still gonna make a bullbar and weld it on. Without the light it ran me about $45 in materials.
