mcseang,
Do you anything about the rims on your Jeep?

The reason I ask is I just picked up this 1990 last week....

assembled the tailgate and installed it today, also put on 6 inch wide rear flares. finished the dash assembly but still have to put in the a/c unit. led's in dash looks good. weather was overcast today so my original plan of replacing the water pump and valve cover gasket were put on hold. with any luck i can do the w/p and v/cover tomorrow. once that is done i will hang the front sheet metal. getting closer to completion

i have quite a few more pictures of the past several days, all the sheet metal is installed. before i installed the front body panels i decided to replace the valve cover gasket, water pump,thermostat and oil pressure switch due to ease of access. also installed the new wide flares and all new hood hardware. getting closer to completion, next weekend i plan on painting the roll bar and and raptor lining the inside of the top.

I am so jealous of how good that looks. I wish I had your motivation (of course I don't have any time to be motivated with) but one day, I hope to do a job half as good as you have.

Jeep looks great, you should have done the grille black
Have you checked the output on those ebay projectors? The light output was horrible when I tried them.

grille

powerline, i have not tried out the headlights as of yet... still finishing up the assembly before i put power to everything. as far as the grille goes it used to have the chrome overlay and i hated it. went with the blue on it as i was looking for a mono-chromatic color scheme. i have built alot of vehicles in the past and just seem to like the look of solid colors with black trim.
