Fixed the rot issue in my Driver's side door frame. It's not pretty but it's definitely sturdy. When I get a better welder I'll worry more about the weld appearance. Waiting to Raptor line it when I do the interior. The piece I put in wrapped around the side and all the center section too. Glad it's done.

Good for you. Heard your hookup on parts flaked. What a jerk.

Mine isn't anything that snazzy though it looks more important than it is. Its nothing more than a water bottle with a hole drilled in the bottom for the windshield washer motor to spray me with some mist when it gets hot. However with the air hose being stored in its vicinity its quite formidable looking as far as difficult or important mods go.

Same thing I thought yesterday evening whilst finishing up my light hoop and the hoop for the JK I made it look pretty-ish with the metal bondo stuff and a couple coats of filler/primer.

Unfortunately the Rustoleum bedliner spray seriously sucks. Ruined the look, I was going for a textured rubber but it ended up looking horrible.

Today/tomorrow I'll get more filler/primer, and use spray-on Plastidip instead.

Finally welded the shock mount. Now I just need to reppace the windsheild (next week) and run the tj exhaust since I bent the crap oit of mine and she will be done again until something else breaks or I decide to mod something else

On a serious note: I have seen very intricate fire extinguishing systems plumbed that way but I wouldn't know where to get the retardant unless I just plumbed straight hoses to an existing extinguisher.

Drove 80 miles in a poker run. Longest ride since the swap. Handled great.
