New to the forum...addicted already!

Hey guys, recently got the opportunity to purchase a 91 yj from my uncle and I started to clean it up. I am a novice when it comes to anything high off the ground so bare with me.

This yj has a 95 4.0 motor and trans in it, 2inch body lift, some 33's and rust lol. On with the pictures.

This is what I started with, clerarcoat is shot and I am going to be fighting some rust in the future.




here is some of the rust

passengers side interior






Drivers side interior



I then started to rip apart the interior to see how much sanding was going to be involved and man did I bite off more then I could chew




^not so bad

old center console is trash so thats where I put it


seats and covers are in bad shape


after sanding the interior down to bare metal, I primed the inside and doorjams



I used Rustoleum bedliner paint and It was easy to use but I am not a fan of how durable it is. I layed 3 coats in most of the interior and 4 where heavy use was











here is some of the lines around the jeep



my buddy helping out with the bedliner



^^^ also I used some paint prep spray to take some of the oxidation out of the weathered paint and it really began to shine


bottle opener attached to the side


This is the stuff that worked amazing



My one headlight looks to have cataracts lol



rusty/pitted wheels



500 grit wet sand and turned into this



all cleaned up and they look like this

Did the same to the flares....even though it might not last long

Hope you all enjoy the beginning of a long road ahead....I do have a lot of questions but I will use my seach button before I ask

Very sharp looking Jeep. Always loved the red and black look, with the nutmeg/spice top.. looks great.
