Responder, first I engine degreased it to get the major gunk off. Then I hand scrubbed it with lacquer thinner. Great cleaner. Then wiped it down really good with a acetone. 3 coats of primer, 3 coat of paint. Duplicolor 500 degree engine paint. That stuff really stays put. Prep is everything.

Nice yj. Question: where did you get the side mirrors? For the passenger, do you look at the mirror through the windshield, or where the door would be. My windshield view is blocked by an hid light, so i need to get something i can see through the door area.

The mirrors are from quadratec. They are aftermarket CJ style. I didn't like the way they stuck way out. So where the arms were bent I cut them off there and mounted them with the hardware. Much tighter to the body. Only thing is when the soft top part of the door are on, when I open the doors they hit them. They still will open, but not all the way. I seldom keep the doors on

Just to confirm, you can see the pass mirror through the door window?

That is what I am looking for. I also don't like how far out the Cj mirrors are, so didn't know if you found something else. You could just limit the door swing with the strap. Thanks again.
