Todays Fabrication Projects (Highline, Fenders, etc)

OK... had a day working on the Jeep and did a few things...

First on the front....

Started with stock cut fenders.



Then cut them off



Then marked off 3" of the hood



And cut that off too



Made some new fenders, and decided to make a sexy little vent... just to try it



and painted

Now to the back

Marked where I decided to cut



and cut it out



but it went up into the wheel house area
(Knew this before I started)



So I built a little "arm rest"

Thanks, I'm thinking about cutting the front of the raised black area in the middle of the hood,
and dropping it down to vent the hood like I did the fenders, kind of like one wide 03 Cobra style

Highline turned out awesome! Couple questions: it looks like you kept the inner fender, did you move it up to sit flush with the hood or did you just fill the gap with the new tube fender top? Also what worked best to cut the hood and fenders? Your other hood modifying idea sounds cool too, but wouldn't it pool with water which then would pour into your engine bay, or am i misunderstanding?

Nice work!

What kind of paint did you use for the OD job? I want to do something similar.

No I did not move the inner fenders up, I filled the gap above them.

I used a plasma cutter to cut everything, but on my old CJ I used a cutoff wheel and that worked fine, just took a bit longer to cut, then the edges were cleaned up with a flap wheel if needed..

Yes the scoop would funnel water and dump it on the engine, but who cares, its not going to hurt anything,

That really looks good, its a much more "finished" look. Good job.

Looks good. Looks REAL good. I will be using this as a template when I work on mine later on down the road.
