dug out the rear door panels, cleaned them. tomorrow they get a color change and go back in. Don't care enough about the back seat to source grey ones.

battleship grey or satin black. I'm asking everyone's opinion. I'm highly leaning toward battleship grey, due to it being the same price, but uv wont eat it. The satin, will probably chalk up and end up the same way it is now, however it might not.

This will be a cheap <50$ mask and shoot, just so every time someone touches the jeep, they don't get covered in black soot from the paint lol.

I'll le you know as soon as I can get it in the bay and get the rockers in. I'm a little worried about lifting some of the liner on the floors when I do the rocker/slider replacement. if this was to happen, do I just grind it all out, re chassis saver and reliner those areas?

I've been motivated, time just hasn't been on my side. Lol I know you know how that is.

Correct on repairing if you have an issue. If stuff starts to lift you can score a line through to the metal to stop it until you get to grinding

time-time-time where does it go

good tip on the scoring a line. I Should have done the rockers straight away but was so close to winter when I finally finished it lol.
My own fault.

corcan1, thanks bud. I hope it helps. I'm here for any questions. Once upon a time more than 3 of us cared about this build lol
