Finally finished dash lights, plasti dipped rims and sound system

Two months of hurting my back , removing the front seats , tracing wires and I finally have my gauges lit up. When I purchased this 2 months ago only one gauge lit up, I added LED lights to all gauges and speedo, also wired up all the instrument fan/ wiper lights. I have a CJ dash in my 87 YJ , I love that dash!...I also painted all the square instrument panel lights ( behind dash) because too much back lighting was seen thru the dash. You can see the rats nest of wires! Wow it was tedious ....

I also built a box in the back so I can secure things, had a custom console added with a amp inside to power my speakers with an iPod only driven sound system.

Plasti dipped the rims and brake calipers, and bought a cover for the cab, my jeep only has half door and bikini top so I needed the protection.

For the dip, did you use a gun or rattle them? The finish looks pretty good.

Rattled them, stuck 3x5 cards around the rim and put about 4 coats on them

You gave me a great idea, I've been looking around for a stereo for my rig and I never thought to set it up smart phone/iPod only! Thanks for the idea!
