So this weekend i got around to hercing my tub. I started friday with taking the backseat and some of the mounts out. I didn't take my seats out but it still wasn't that hard to paint around. It looks pretty good good and I will get some after shots up later. I didn't take any shots during the process because with my luck the camera would have gotten herced. It is drying right now so maybe tomorrow I will get some pics up.

I think Herculine was one of the best $80 I put into my jeep.

I bought it, it is warn and it was pretty expensive, I caught a deal and got it for like $500 but it is usually like $640. I just drilled through the swing arm and got some bolts for the highlift, if you want I can get some pics.

Well i went ahead and bought a hard top, $150 and I got the top in decent conditon. Does not have back glass, came with a plexi glass that i will need to replace. Any ideas on where to get some. Also need to know how it attaches to the windshield if someone has some pics. I will be repainting it and will update as I go along.
Here is what it looks like




This is the plexiglass that i will need to replace, i kept it so i would have a good template.

You're wanting to replace the plexi with new plexi? If so it's available at Lowe's, and most likely Home Depo. I could only find 24" x 48" in 1/4" thickness, so that's what I used. It's just about an inch too short, but once I get trim put on the bottom it'll be fine. If you don't have anything local that has it, this is a good site that will ship for a reasonable cost: eStreet Plastics. Couple of tips: use a fine tooth metal cutting blade on a jig saw to cut it, and don't try to cut the whole thing at once as the blade gets hot and will stick to the plastic. Coarse blades won't heat up when cutting, but they chip the plastic too much.

Black '91 YJ, pretty much stock for now. Finished engine rebuild. Runs beautifully.

no, they were some neopreane seat covers that i found at q-tec, they go really well with the outside color of my jeep and at the time were on sale so i got them. They cover up the old seats and look pretty good too.

Again, thank you blackrhino, for answering my questions more than once.
