nice.....and it's not that YOU are 'anal' Beastmaster.....it's that so many of your adoring fans are 'detail deficit'....
thanks for trying to Make a Difference!!!

I made a couple of subtle changes today.
Anyone following this thread knows I'm rather a stickler (some would say anal) for accuracy. You can see what I mean when someone pointed out I had transposed a couple of numbers on my hood number decals.
Anyhoo, the original stars I put on were accurate or so I thought, but they weren't. Okay, to give some background in the history of the WWII stars, they all came off the assembly line as just a basic star. From 1943 to 1945, the Army would paint a circle around them to avoid confusing them with vehicles that had fallen into enemy hands during the lend-lease program. These stars were later called "Invasion Stars". Technically, the circle around the star was supposed to be unbroken but the vast majority of the time the stencil lines were left in place.
Albright, now comes my annoyance with my original stars. Pretty much 90% of the sets of WWII invasion stars you will find on the internet are not technically correct. My first stars had the circle but it was broken by the star, this wouldn't have happened on the original markings. I also reduced the diameter a couple of inches. 90% of the WWII Jeeps didn't have doors the those that did, had canvas doors. The only stars on the side were 6-inches in diameter so this is where I took the look from other military vehicles of the time that had solid doors.
I showed my wife and she said "Ya, so, what's the difference?" That's fine with me, my chances are subtle and I like it that way.
Thanks for reading folks and happy Jeeping!

lol. Yes. That is very good.
Also, I ordered my hood decals from Solar Graphics. I was a little skeptical because the price seemed too good to be true. But the price was great, it arrived not even a week later and it looks good.
So far, I would recommend.
P.S. Don't be scared away by the many misspellings on the website

I haven't been to active with my JK this past year, been devoting my time on my Willys. I have a few plans for 2015 but all that's going on right now is a little holiday cheer.
Say hello to Rudolph!

Great looking Jeep! I'm bookmarking this thread.
Dad was in the AAC.
I've got a JKUHR in the Tank color ordered and was thinking of doing something along these lines.

Thank you again, I like how your wheel wells looked especially the Tire pressure markings.
I think I will go the same route, rip out the liners, clean it then spray paint it black. Did you use anything special or just regular black spray paint?
|10-02-2014 08:11 AM|
Yep, I took out the rear liners. I painted them black inside and I think it looks better than with the liners in. Also less chance for dirt and bud to get tapped.
|10-02-2014 07:42 AM|
Thank you Sir, I know there are huge differences in the prices between those brands. Any recommendations? Ill start looking at reviews on them. Bushwackers shipped to Puerto Rico are over $500 to $600. Flat style is more expensive then pocket flare style.
Rear wheel well did you remove the liner?
|10-01-2014 02:24 PM|
|Beastmaster||I'd have to say the Xenon, Warrior Products, Genright and Bushwacker all look pretty close.|
|10-01-2014 09:58 AM|
I love your set up, been looking at pictures of your jeep for over a few months now and decided to try do something with my beat up 98 Sahara.
I was going to go with Tag Pocket style flares but liked your Ace tubular flares. They dont make them for TJ's though. Is the bushwacker (plastic) flat flares the closest I can get to this look? Or are there similar flares I could look at?

Nice looking rig, Cap
Meant to post this a while back. After the accident. they had to repaint my hood so I needed to re-do the markings. I've been wanting to install some louvers (found it got really hot under the hood on the trail) so I figured this would be a good time.
Here's the thread BTW: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f314/th...rs-762226.html
I think it came out pretty well:

|1990wrangler||Super sexy set up, I was thinking of making my YJ an old school theme but I can't find od green out here and are you making a thread for the 43 willys ?|
|04-22-2014 10:27 PM|
In WWII the military vehicles had the tire pressure markings on the inside of the wheel well.
As far as the rest of the stuff, well time will tell. I gave my mod list to the body shop so they know what parts are stock and what they will have to order.
|04-22-2014 10:01 PM|
however, it did give us a nice opportunity to see just how detailed you've gotten with your rig; I like the designation numbers in the wheel well
everything else about the wheel well makes me sad.

Got into an accident.
Some lady did a left turn in front of me Friday. It did quite a bit of damage to my Sarge but I think her little SUV is totaled. I didn't notice when I was taking the pictures today but I think in the first pic, that's her SUV parked next to my Jeep.
Bent my bumper, shoved my tire back braking the shock absorber and bending the lower control arm and axle. There was lots of misc dings, dents and scratches.

|J Gand||What a beast! Sarge has inspired me to go with tan seatcovers! I was skeptical about mixing tan into the black interior, but it looks fantastic. The Coyote color looks much lighter in the pictures than it does on the website.|
