So I bought my TJ about 6 months ago, worked hard and proudly bought it, being only 17 I was pretty hype. So for the next 6 months I have had the pleasure of fixing little things that were broken, and dealing with a ripped broken leaking soft top, all that nasty mold!!!!!!!!! Up until about 4 days ago it hasn't been on the road, I finally got it going and now that I look at my baby, she's really tired. Te previous owner put her through hell, 2 4cyl motors, 248,000 miles, never cleaned her. Such a shame. In it's current condition, the fenders are faded, the dash is faded, the paint is getting there, the rims are plain and real tired, engine is lacking, and the frame looks like SHIT, not rusty no, but it being a shaded gray, a color that looks like crap, and it being all torn up, dirty, dented, and all that. I have come up with a nice little idea, I want to start up a little project. I see all these nice TJ's on the road, then I look at mine and I'm like oh.... When it gets a little warmer, maybe not, maybe soon, I'm going to start buying supplies, paint for the dash, paint for the fenders, paint for the wheels, paint for the engine block(going to try and make it as nice as possible) and paint for the FRAME! And make sure I have about $300 in my pocket for oops moments and anything that brakes while I take the body of my baby. I think if I take the dash out, flares off, and body off, I can clean it all off, make it all pretty, then paint paint the frame, flares, dash and wheels black. To me it sounds like a dream, I can get my rig to the point when she's all pretty, clean, and solid, then find myself a crate engine, a nice 4.0 or 4.3 v6, if all goes well I can then send her off to the paint shop. After all the crazy stuff I'll hope to have a completely new jeep, maybe keep it a long while, give it to my son or daughter, you never know lol. But right now, I'm just going to start the frame and all that, keep moving forward little by little, post pics of my progress on here, maybe someone will show some interest lol.
