What was the resolution to the OME spring question?
Which springs did you get and how do they work with your set-up?
No problem at all. I did it because there wasn't much online at all about YJ hardtops, specifically about how to restore them. Some of these parts are very hard to find and there are not a lot of photos on net.
I contacted OME/ARB and talked to one of their techs. He told me to go with their HD springs in the back. I sold a few parts and the old Medium Duty springs on Craigslist. I used that cash to buy the new springs and couldn't be happier. The hold the rear the weight of the hardtop well and do not bounce around on heavy bumps.
I can check the springs later to get the part numbers off of the top leaf.
How the paint holding up on the hard top? I see it has been a few years.
It has faded a little bit. I would guess two or three shades. Nothing major though and it still looks great.
The Monstaliner has held up great too. It looks fresh to this day. When I coated the interior of the top with Monstaliner it was still a fairly new product and they had not released the myriad of color options they have now. I'm thinking about coating the outside of the top with the Spice colored Monstaliner this summer and maybe getting the windows professionally tinted at the same time. We'll see...
I'll throw a photo up on the thread in the next day or two to show you what it looks like now.
I linked the for sale thread I have for the Jeep, but the mod deleted it... If you guys do a search in the For Sale forum you'll see it. You can see how well the hard top has held up since the resto. The paint is in great condition to this day. Definitely a little lighter in color, but it looks great.
