Do you have a picture of the grill on your jeep after you cut out the center sections with the mesh installed?

I wanna leave the mesh as is but its kinda thin so I'm a little worried about the strenth. I'm gonna go ahead and plasti dip the whole grill mesh and all black with hopes it will make the mesh a little stronger. The slats were pretty easy to get rid of, I used a reciprocating saw and a fine rasp. I took my time and It took like an hour to an hour and a half tops to get everything cleand out of the holes and gettin it all smoothed out an lookin pretty.

Takes a few weeks when ordering through kolak but we get a pretty good deal. The rotors are badass. They should be there in a day or too. They just machined the zj rotors on thursday I think

Changed out bondo'd front fender with a limited one. Learned a few things that were different between the two. Mainly having to do with the body cladding.

Today my wife's ZJ got a new master cylinder, a new front lower control arm.
Except I broke the camber adjusting bolt off...
Made a quick run to the hardware store for a grade 8 bolt, nut, and thick washers.
Put the front bolt in so the C/A was where it was previously bolted in and tightened it. Then I fought the rear bolt, but got it in.
I also did the exterior plastic with a 50/50 linseed oil/paint thinner mix. It looks better than new!!

My ZJ got some worn out snow tires with the studs removed because it has an unknown front end issue and I'd hate to destroy a new set of tires with it.
Mine also got a new K&N oil filter, 4qts of Rotella T, and a quart of Lucas.

But best of all, now my VIC has nothing to beep about any more.
I discovered that the bottom of the float switch in the coolant reservoir had partially fallen off.
I tore it off the rest of the way, cleaned it all up, stuck the bottom back in place, and melted it back together all the way around it with a lighter.
Once I was sure it was fully sealed I put it back in.
I started it up and my VIC only tells me the time and date. NO beeps and coolant low message!!!!!
