My '89 Laredo has been sitting in the garage since I got my '07 JK. Been cleaning it up, taking note of what needs to be done. This past weekend removed I removed my chrome grill overlay. I also prepped for doing a nutter bypass. My vacuum lines are mess.

Found an oil filter that fit the jeep in the garage so I went ahead and changed the oil for the hell of it.

Bedliner

I was planning on lining the entire tub, but I forgot to remove the seatbelts while at my friends garage (he is a Monro manager, very convenient as I have full access to their lifts and tools and everything you can think of, just about). When I got the Jeep back home, I realized I didn't have a torx wrench big enough : ( So I just lined the back half of the tub for today.

This is what I used, about $20 cheaper than herculiner...I'll let you guys know how it holds up after I have had a chance to find out myself!




After removing the seats, carpet, shifter boot, etc, I ground a lot of the rust down and roughed the paint up on most of the flat surfaces



Next, I removed the rear seatbelts and all of the mounting hardware for the rear seat and some extraneous screws left sticking out of the floor from an amp the idiot PO had installed. Roughed the paint up back here as well in the flat areas



After getting the Jeep home, I removed the speaker boxes from on top of the wheel wells, and diligently washed all of the rear half of the tub with a wet cloth and soapy water, then used the sanding pad provided by duplicolor to hit all of the spots not hit previously



Finished masking off the rear half of the tub



Applied a thin first coat, realizing that the roller is what adds most of the texture to this stuff. In spots that required the hand brush, I just brushed like I were painting for the first coat to cover the blue as best as possible. The next two coats I dabbed with the hand brush to keep the texture uniform



Started to get dark after the first coat so I pulled into the carport where I have a light, this picture is not as clear due to the lack of sunlight though. I will add a pic of the final product in the sun shortly. Also will add a pic after the front is done, as soon as I have a few hours free and I get ahold of that torx wrench! This one is after the second coat VVVV

I guess I should explain...the previous owner obviously disliked this blue as much as I do, and they paid for a cheap MACO paint job (without doing ANY prep work...too damn lazy to remove any of the trim, carpet, seats, roll bar pads, flares, etc., didnt rough the paint at all... Blue pops out everywhere. I sprayed the roll bars with 2 coats of rattle can duplicolor the other day, I am going to do one more coat of the flat and then add a coat of gloss. I also plan to have the entire exterior line-xed, should look good when I'm done.

Changed the oil, painted the frame with an anti-rust paint, greased it, rotated the tires, and started to mount my Smittybuilt XRC 10 winch, but found that it won't fit with my bumper because it's got an added loop. Now I've got to get someone to cut the mounting bracket, if I do it it'll look like crap. And now I've finished mounting my winch on there, had a mechanic cut it with a torch, much easer and cleaner than a sawzall. But, after all that, my dad and I still had to sawzall the loop off because it got in the way of the motor.
