My.. Re-Build Up

I figured that I will make one thread and just post pictures of my progress and what I want to do to my XJ.


This is how it currently sits:

I need to get a new bumper, and the front grill. Going to the junkyard this weekend, or next week. Hopefully I can find the grill. and then I'm going to get (probably) the JCR Stage 2 front bumper.

Then comes replacing the passenger side floor... (already replaced the drivers.)
Then, herculining the intire floor. and then putting everything back in.

After that, I want to (not right away) get either the JCR Stage 1, or Stage 2 Rear bumper. (I've got one question.. I've got my own hitch, does the aftermarket bumper interfere with anything to do with the hitch?)
And also, Some sliders. I'm thinking just JCR (Again).. probably stage 1. Or AJ's Standard, or Superrails.


Once all thats done, and settled, I'd like to buy another set of tires for offroad use. maybe Bighorns.. maybe something else. haven't really thought about that just yet. and probably some rockcrawlers, or something cheap but strong.

Thats about all I've got for now. Will post pictures of my progress.

I did a little bit more today for the rust and whatnot. Scrapped it down as much as I could, and painted the bottoms of the front seats with some rust-stuff paint so that they're not all ..rust infested.
but mainly, I got it running. .. now that thats done with, i can get started on the floor.

I've been calling some stores to see how much herculiner is. havne't asked about rhino, or durabak though. the one place that I've phoned that has it, wants $160 for the kit, and $50 for one litre of it. I want to buy just the 1 gallon, not the complete kit. .. assuming theres quite a bit of price difference. anybody know where I could get just the paint? or, a place that sells cheaper? it doesn't have to be herculiner.. just something in that .. category?

I took a few more pictures.

i know walmart has herculiner near the auto touch-up paints. you can buy the kit, a gallon or a little can. well at least here you can. every store is probably different. but i would give them a try

I don't think Durabak really comes as a "kit". They sell it by the gallon on their website.

I found this. I don't know if it's the best price but it's better than $160.00!

I used this stuff on my rear bumper and it has held up great. Though, someone else might have a little more insight into which products perform better.
