on the side windows yes it does but dont put it on the outside of the windshield cause when you go to use your wipers they will... stutter, chatter, skip... I guess thats the best way to explain it. You can wax the inside of the windshield if you like, it doesnt help keep fog off of it but it wont leave spots when you wipe it down.

TomTankslely I wax the inside and outside of the windows regularly and havent had the problem since.

It just occurred to me that right handed drill bits are stupid... left-handed chuck, left handed bits, you lose absolutely nothing and gain big time...

Yes. You should find what you need at Pepboys or Autozone or what ever autoparts store you have near you. It would probably be a good idea to pull the door panel and grab one off the door for an example to help find the right size.

Inside door handles/strap help

Alright this might be an idiot question but i bought a set of full doors and truthfully they've been more trouble then the entire jeep.

My main concerns i need help with is the inside grab handles fell off and they wont stay in with the bolts, and the strap to keep the door from flying onto your front fender stripped and one of the bolts is broke off into the door.




Any help would be great, i need to repaint the panels to and whenever i rolldown the window it squeeks an insane amount.
