got my injectors in Sunday...
runs a little smoother but not a huge difference..
old injectors really didnt look all that bad...but atleast i know they are new..one less part to worry bout.
I do know i can hear my CAI sucking more now..whistles lol kinda sounds like a turbo
Next on the list is hopefully getting both side panels Thursday and a mig welder as well...
gonna teach myself to weld with the help of body man neighbor..
Stay Tuned...

Finally done with the sides and rear corners...
Excuse the paint...I just wanted to get something on there...got all the bolt holes drilled on the rails for hard and soft tops..
replaced all those dumba## torx...
had to fab both those triangle thingies that the lower part of the windshield hinges bolt to..
On the bright side I have never seen another YJ with the same triangle design as mine lol...uniqueness rocks lol
They are a tiny bit off but over all came out well...
You can see a lil bit of weld throught seems where the rear corners meet the rear part of the side panels.
Anyone wanting to do this in the drive...its doable but gonna take you about a week,O and the new sides I bought,did not have enuff clearance for the door striker...had to mod that with a sawzall and self tapping screws..the large bolt that holds the seatbelt assembly had to be tapped as well..
Questions or comments let me know...
