New girl..

So I've had the odd unsuccessful build, but I feel I'm starting with something with much more potential this time.

The main reason to start a new one is I need the help through it and you guys are always ever reliable (so far) lol

So here she is so far..

After a good cleaning, painted hinges and bumpers, odds and ends..

Are you planning on reusing them after you take them off? You could just use a dremel to cut the bolts off and then drill them out. They were a pain in the *** to take off on mine even without being covered in undercoating.

I do plan on re using them if possible.. I really would like to avoid drilling them out (miserable experience) I might be able to cut the bolt and slip it off? If I'm lucky..

If I remember right they screw in through the fender and into the little rectangular things behind them correct? I think if you just cut the heads off, the nuts should just fall off the other side.

Taking them off is horrible but it is that rectangle thing behind there. And your most likely gonna have to take them off like that

Hard to find an early YJ that doesnt have cancer behind the flares.

Wouldn't this '95 be as LATE a YJ as one could find.

Kidding aside, seeing the before pics of the windshield and door hinges, I'd say your prediction is a safe one.
