87 YJ Restore

Hi,

I would like to introduce myself.

Arthur P. and am starting a 87 YJ restore. I wanted to say "HI" and hope you all don't mind the next year in questions. I like the forum, can't wait to get started.

This is my 87 and the frame is rotten so I am doing a ground up restore.

Thanks (in advance)

The thicknes of it, and lack of texture,. Picture makes it look better than it is...

I will get it flipped over when it dryes, but will be using this in the tub. Will post pic when done.

I have the tub ready, and getting it cleaned. Do you think i should bring the liner around over the lip, or keep it inside the lip?

Well no answer so i did what i did!

I got to say. If your ever told by someone in the forum to buy monsterliner, take the advice, pay the extra and tell them THANK YOU.

I end up redoing the under body to my liking, and i love the monster liner in the tub...

What you think?

How much of the monstaliner did it take you to do the tub?

One gallon. And i was able to get a couple coats on it, more than enough. I bough the $16 gun, not sure if it was the gun or nomal but it shot out like it was string. But nun the less it turned out just fine, and i would use it again.

Any reason for staying with the sport style roll bar? I know a lot of people upgrade them to the family style. Not sure whether you are going for a stock look or not.

Thanks Ian. But Texas might be a little far to do some swapping. I love the Auto and the wife can drive it when she wants. I am more of a leisure driver with my jeep and not as much trail rides. So I can't answer for the others. Other than i get tiered of shifting in the city. I like to do country rides and not even break 45mph, so it's just put in drive and go. I hope to be painting in about two weeks will get pics up then, and just dropped rims off at custom painting yesterday.
