Trimming complete and Herculiner installed

Hey gang!

Got done with fender trimming today. It came out pretty nice and I now have so much room around my tires that I definately need bigger tires. So for sale go my 31's within the next few weeks, and I hope to find a decent set of 33's or 32's for my DD tires.

Anyway, on with the pics. I did the liner prior to taking pictures, so no bare fender pics. Also, yes I splooged over my tape in three spots. Oh well, I don't really mind, it does have 186K on the clock. Who knows, maybe I'll cover the whole Jeep in this stuff later. Yes, I didn't paint part of my front bumper, and that's because I'm cutting that part off. Also I need a new paintbrush to finish off my grill. The one I had is as hard as a rock.

I'll take more pics tomorrow or Friday after I get the bumpers back on and pull it outside.








More pics comming, but my computer is slow tonight.

Nice! I especially like that grill. That'll look sweet pieced back together.

That's all for today. Will take more when she's got her bumpers on and is out of the garage.

I would've taken more, but liked my rear doors too much and found if I took much more out of the front that I would loose the integrity of my front fenders. Someone showed me a picture of theirs, and it was so ugly I stopped cutting.


I know, 35's are due here in about 2 weeks.

If they are MTRs, you mean 34s don't you.

They say 35, but who knows. If they fit and I can still flex, I'll run them. Otherwise, I'll sell them and the 31's for two sets of 33's. One for the road and one for play.

Thanks!

Maintenace is fun. I do too much per day. Let's see aircraft maintainer 10 hrs a day + all the crazy Jeep stuff whenever possible. Yeah, I spend a lot of time with a wrench in my hand.
