Oh, and forgot the velcro mod that my gram helped me with.. she sewed on a velcro strip to the soft top and the other piece stuck onto the hardware.. looks great, and no rattling

OK, now the best part.. the results and by the way.. i did this all myself, so dont bash me too hard for my very amatuer fixing and fabbing skills lol.. I used spraycan bedliner for the finish.. i wanted it to be different and textured.. and it was both, so.. im thinking about doing my whole jeep in this stuff haha.. i still gotta do the the front fender panels and grilll with the spray can bedliner.. but this is how the back turned out..

still got a few more coats for the back, but all in all.. i was happy what that $8 can of bedliner did for me.. lol. now the other partial mod i did in between my prep and coats of paint.. was the flares.. atleast one of them :x lol.. i saw this on youtube.. I took a heatgun to my flares to barely re-melt the surface of the flares and it turns it nice and black.. did a whole flare using this technique.. then.. used a little "back to black" sort of stuff i guess.. and look at the results..





And thats mint! lol. still gotta do 3 more flares and a good deal of spray can bedliner lol.. but i liked the mods i did today.. good experimenting i guess lol. what does everyone think?

don't laugh I did my whole jeep with bedliner black. I bought the gallon and rolled it on. much easier than spraying. Had enough to do inside and outside. Sprayed small parts. Looks pretty mean.

I used Rustoleum. I did 2 coats. And still have some left over. Still need to do the doors.Started to roll it on but the brush was much better. use a good brush. I have a few bristles that came off. (and didn't notice them till it dryed.) Jeep is not on the road yet so do not know how well it will hold up. Will see if I can get picks tomarrow. I have a thread under yj. Titled 92 wrangler in upstate NY.

Here are some pics. Still need to touch a little. I moved the gas filler to the side so I can have back up lights. Came out pretty good. As far as longevity can't help ya. I had to do something so gave it a shot. Only paid $45 gal. at wally world. Bought a couple of spray cans also. did the small stuff. brushing it on was thicker than rolling it. I sanded the jeep then wiped it good with acetone. Didn't do the best prepping. But we will see. No real budget. Had to work with what i had. Touch up should be easy.

Here is one of the whole jeep. Click on the pic. to see it bigger. There are probably better bedliner material out there and better prepping. Like I said before, funds low here so used what i could.
