did you fork out the money for new ones or weld it? I'm thinking about welding it and then sending all my hinges off to be powder coated

So today I did a ton of work on the jeep and changed my plans up yet again....

So first off I pulled the tub off everyone I know was busy so I got it most of the way off and then my mom helped me and I got it off completely... first picture of the day...All the red you see in the picture are areas I have already removed surface rust....
Then Once I got the tub removed I started removing stuff from the frame and the gas tank......The frame is being removed ground down and por 15-ed so it has to be completely stripped this wasn't in the original plan but dang if I'm this far into it mise as well...
Then I ran into a couple of snags. I don't know how to remove the brake cables....The wrenches are just stripping the bolts so I think I'm doing something wrong.... Anyways I moved onto the rest of the engine I can pull.... I'll be posting up some questions rite after this post in tech to help with the rest of the engine pulling which I hope to do tomorrow..The piece of cardboard is to kind of keep crap out of the ports


Also here are some new parts I have had sitting around the house..... Yes Savvy Corners My plans are to tie aluminum satin black and that orange all in together I think its going to look sharp....

Also I was given a deal and I wasn't wanting to build my own inner fenders and it wasn't that much more all said in done so I went ahead and bought the metal cloak fenders....I will still be making my own flares however and am going to try to put a spin on them so they don't look like all the others....



So for the plans changed I have now decided to not do my flat skid modify the body mounts or do my motor mount lift. I'm just going to do a 1" body lift and make it SOA.....I have flip flopped back and forth deciding if I was going to do a flat skid and keep it 4" sua or go SOA and not do a flat skid well I'm just going to do SOA and then do a 1" body lift so later on I can do a high clearance skid...Money wise it comes out to just a little more I was looking at spending a descent amount to do the flat skid on the mml/ steel/ bushings/ and the flat skid itself...it was going to be around 600 so now...I just have to buy springs shocks and a high steer of some sort.....Brake lines I already have figured into my budget so thats the same as with the SYE.....Also I think I'm going to be able to sell my Rugged Ridge Heavy duty tire rod set up its still like brand new it only went on one trail ride so maybe I can pick up like 100 or 125 for that and help offset the cost of the new steering setup.... SO yea thats the change the work is going to pick up now on the jeep I have the money in the bank and have tons of stuff to keep me busy so updates and pictures will be more often sorry for the lapses in time but I"m young and with work and church I just havn't had time....Funny for a while I had all the time and no money now I have money and No time hahahaha

You'll need a flare nut wrench to get off the brake line fittings.

No, it's just a different style of wrench. Not sure on the size.

They look like this:

there normal thread rotation, but once there striped you can get them off with a mini set of lock pliers

Okay is it normal for them to be super hard to remove like I said I had a ton of weight into them earlier and they weren't budging and the wrench was starting to twist around and strip the bolt so I stopped and moved onto something else to avoid stripping but like dang they were on there good

I'd hit them with some penetrant and let them sit.

Great build!
I agree PB blaster is golden. If you can smack them with a hammer but not too hard it might help.

At first I was a little disappointed to see you getting rid of all the Renegade flares, cause I really like the Renegade but it looks like its still going to be cool.
