From very beginning to present. I'm 17 years old and this is my first vehicle. Got it about 2-3 months ago. Wish I had my license so I could drive it around now.. lol. But it's coming soon.

Picture 3-supposed to come first. That was the listing on the internet.
Picture 1-what it looked like inside when I took out the passenger and rear seat
Picture 2-after tearing out the carpet, the truth is revealed

Picture 1&2-and this...this is what happens when your jeep isnt completely in gear and rolls backwards into a stump in your back yard while youre inside..........learnin' the hard and expensive way.. :banghead: :(

This is it guys, thanks for looking! That's my Jeep from 2-3 months ago to now. Spent a lot of time on it and worked pretty hard so I hope you enjoy viewing! :D

Your doing a great job! Don't let the crunch bring you down. You need to make up a good story to go with it about how you were pulling out a hummer and the jack-ass hit you!

YJman 01-17-2011 11:59 AM

Lmao! Great idea!! I got the crunch pulled out and primed. As soon as I get some fairly warm weather, I have to bondo it up. I should actually update this thread, as I've done a few things to her since then :) I'll update it tonight, I have no time at the moment. :(

yjkid95 01-17-2011 12:25 PM

Try to use the littlest amount of bondo as possibile if you glob it on there youll regret it later. But looks good. I got a rocker panel you can take care of it you want the paints starting to bubble. :rofl:

SUBZEROCOOL 01-17-2011 12:26 PM

Nice work, that bed liner looks good:punk:

YJman 01-17-2011 12:51 PM

Okay thanks. I think I read some where to try not to go over an 1/8 inch thick with bondo :) and lol those rockers were a pain in the rear. But once it's replaced, you have piece of mind.

Thanks SUBZERO :) First time with the bed liner. By the way, it hurts like a son of a gun when it gets in your eyes lol. But it's all worth it in the end.

So I got the crunch in my rear fender pulled out. I have to get a picture of it because I don't have one. It's primed with grey and white primer for now until I can do the bondo. So next I decided to tackle the hinges because my doors wouldn't close without lifting the doors up bout a half inch.

Picture 1: Old windshield frame hinges
Picture 2: A friend gave me these hinges, so I painted them black :)

YJman 01-19-2011 06:52 PM
