Love all the military inspired Jeeps from all generations. Awesome.

I read about the hood numbers, 20 plus the last 5 numbers of my VIN followed by -S. The front bumper letters and numbers were on a plastic model I had. LOL

Over the last 3 days I installed MCE front and rear flat fenders, used 11 cans of spray paint to paint it and I cut some decals for it today. Here is what it looked like 3 days ago...

[QUOTE=Kane21d;10839209]My Memorial Weekend Projects....why mount an M4 in the Jeep? Because America that's why!

Actually I thought it'd be good for trail running here in hog country. Plus it matches the military theme.

Looks like it would be good in rush hour traffic.
Just kidding, looks good.

My 1993 YJ, it has only ever been owned or driven by a member of my family in the military.
Then I got it and did a small facelift....

J8 hood scoop feeler for a group buy
I have been in contact with Doc at Springtail Solutions. They have been busy building a new line of storage products for the JKs. He is in the process of making a J8 tribute and has fabricated a J8 hood scoop that is very close to how the real thing appears. I have been talking to him about whether they have plans to manufacture these or not. He tells me that if there is enough interest, he would consider making a batch for us. He would need at least 10 interested parties to commit to prepaying. Here are the details....
Group buy details
Price $90.00 plus shipping
Product would ship about 3-4 weeks after payment is accepted.
Once we get 10+ parties interested, he will post a link on the website for us to pay. Once enough have paid, he will start manufacturing the J8 hood scoops.
Hood scoop will be finished in powder coat primer.
As you can see in pictures, welds will need to be finished for a smooth look. He liked the appearance of the welds and most painted unfinished.
The fit is close but not perfect, sticky back rubber foam will be provided with the scoop. As you can see in the pictures, the foam provides better fit and aesthetics. Mounting holes will be placed approximately the way they are on his prototype. No hardware is provided
This GB is only for the hood scoop, there are no internals yet to hook it up to the air intake. That would be up to us to figure out....as you can see in the pictures, it is pretty close. Obviously, not a project for the faint of heart since you would be cutting a hole in your hood According to Doc, these are very hard to fabricate and to manufacture which is why no one offers them. Since Doc is not a vendor on this forum, he will not be participating in this thread other than to answer any questions through me.

You can do it for ~$200. I bought a case of 24 rattle cans of Gillespie Coatings paint from Rapco Parts company for $83. They have all shades and sell in gallons also.
I picked up my stencil set from a place called Military Stencils for $120. Just as a note on the stencils; it was an entire set for my Willys and are the vinyl type (stick on, paint and peel off)

|Perrinizzle||Is it expensive to paint the jeeps in olive drab and to spray those stencils on? Love the theme in this thread.|

|tamupatriot||Thanks Beastmaster, that's very helpful. I think I'm going to buy the same size as my graduation present to myself!|

As far as applying the decals, there are basically 2 methods; wet and dry. Lots of people swear by the wet method but I put all mine on dry and they came out well.
Here are a couple of tutorials:

|tamupatriot||Love the look of your Jeep. What diameter is the Oscar Mike Hood Decal? Does anyone have any best practices for getting the decal on straight and without any bubbling/crinkling?|

They are the older style poison spyder DeFender series. They have changed the look now with a squared off edge now. The new ones look more like the old MB fenders to me. Great protection and great clearance. They also make a great table for tools and beverage of choice while working.
