Here are the pics from today. Gave it a nice hand wash. Buffed out the paint. Didn’t do a huge close up so it really does no justice. You’ll see the color on the windshield frame as opposed to the hood in the close up I did get. I was really impressed as to how much color came back. However, it will be getting a fresh coat of paint here soon. I also took some pics of the floor boards and such to give you an idea of how solid it really is. I must say I'm glad I bought it. It does have a 95 4.0 in it by the way. Be sure to keep checking in on the updates. Sorry the before pics are kinda crap from the phone so. The pic of the inside does no justice. The only area that is too far gone on the frame is the rear passenger shackle mount. I’ll be repairing that up once we get the material in. Also, I’m wanting to coat the inside and under side of the body with some lining. Was thinking monstaliner. Any suggestions? There’s the update for now. Enjoy




















Then after cleaning it up I got bored and did a quick shoot with it. No trails yet so the back yard will have to do for now. It's actually red again, not a faded orange/pink thank god.

2 pics from this weekend. The plate came finally. Ugh The BMV moves slower than the 2.5s up a muddy hill with no lockers. Also every Sunday a bunch of jeeps get together for a cook out, wrench & bs, and go for an ice cream run. My buddy didn't have a top but stuck out the drizzle anyways. True jeeper I'd say. Fun time. From
Left to right is a 73 cj, 87 yj, 02 Tj, and a 98 Tj. My buddy scored the 02 this weekend. Guy wanted it gone. He let it go for 3k and all we had to do was put a new crank position sensor in it haha. What a deal.

Dont worry dont worry. There will be plenty of trail pics this summer. He already ordered 31s and a 2 inch lift for it. We'll all be going to the badlands in Attica soon enough.

It needed a throttle position sensor too. We snapped 1 bolt off in the TB. Drilled it out and chased it with the old bolt. We got lucky being able to save the threads. what a task that was. Not one of Chrysler's better ideas, engineering that set up.

Small update. Weather man says 70s all week so Friday night I took the top off. Looks much better !





Also I put a quick coat of rustoleum on the frame and rear wheel wells to clean it up and give her a little bit more eye candy. I also cleaned/waxed the front wheel wells. I'll be completely restoring this body and frame as soon as the other yj is done. I got my new rear shackle mount to weld on, currie shackles, POR kit, and Monstaliner kit in friday so hopefully this week I'll be in the jeep zone.








Lastly, a few friends and I made a last minute decision to make our own drive in theater haha. So we went and picked up a projector, a sheet, and a couple movies. Really impressed with the quality and it was a fun night



Here's my lady friend bonding with the jeep.

Good buy, I love my 87. It's the last year AMC owned jeep. I performance built my 258 instead of going with a 4.0, it screams.

Here are the results from the Monstaliner. Jeep was in good shape rust wise on the floors. Very pleased with this product and would use it again. #recommended. I used an old Teflon pan to mix it in. I only had to use half a gallon for two coats. Yesterday when it dried I tried beating it out of the pan with a hammer. No dice. This is TOUGH STUFF! We also did my friend's Tj (blue jeep)













I also decided to throw the bikini top on. Very happy with how this jeep is turning out. I repainted the seat frames in gloss black as well as door strap pins, the heads of all the bolts, the plate covering the hole to the trans. Definitely taking a little extra time to do it right the first time. Body and frame work is next ! Grabber blue here I come

POR work on the new yj frame that is going under the blue project. Step 1: marine clean. Step 2: Prep and ready. Step 3: 3 coats of paint. Definitely just pour out as you need it. You won't need much. 6-8 oz will do a whole frame! Be sure to keep it off the lip of the can. Wear gloves and long sleeves/pants. I have some on my arm from 2 weeks ago that is just now starting to flake off! I let it set up for at least 24 hours in between coats. I did brush it on. Such an easy product to work with that spreads like water. worth the money this far. We'll see how it holds up.

I thought I had posted some of these. Apparently I didn't. Just a couple lame shots after buffing the paint. I really went to town on it this time. Me and a friend also painted his frame with some
Chassis saver. Lastly, the muddin pics are from
"kids in the mudd" just north of Paw Paw michigan. Fun park if you wanna get dirty. Not much for full sized trucks or jeeps though. A lot of mud. Don't say I didn't warn you. And yes I went mudding before I did all the hard work on the paint haha.



The lady washin off the fun






Put on the windjammer top, bored. It's growing on me.


Really brought the red back!




You can really tell the difference here. Used a clay bar, compound, carnauba wax, then finally a liquid wax.



Here's a fav spot of mine in st Jo Michigan. Stopped for a quick pic on the way to the marina.


Here's my bud's jeep. We'll have a before and after when we're all done

Replacing the rear shackle mount the next few nights. I'll see how far I get. I'm also changing a fan relay on my girlfriend's liberty and running new brake lines on a friend's cavalier. Long night ahead haha. I'm also installing currie boom shackles. They were the same price as the others and no one had a good argument for which is better so I just got those.

I'll post pics soon.

Ok so here's the progress so far. After last night's episode with the brake lines and the girlfriend's fan relay getting fixed, I was able to get it up in the air and drop the gas tank. Not a terrible process but definitely some tight spaces you'd have to be patient with. I will also be cleaning the rest of the mud/rust up and painting some of the chassis before putting it all back together.









My dad is always joking about us working in flip flops through the summer so my girlfriend made him a sign for Father's Day. She painted a damn good jeep that is pretty close to his white cj
