New Headliner and Antennae Mount

I Replaced the headliner with brand new fabric and foam, and made a custom CB Antennae mount for our cb.

Getting ready to get rid of the dam thing, I've worked on it for a month and a half now & still have no spark. I'm about done with this Heep.

I have replaced the ignition coil, the ecm, the distributor, plugs and wires, and the crank positioning sensor. Also checked the asd relay.

If you have any suggestions please let me know before I scrap the dam thing.

Used it to back the popup camper back into it's spot after coming back from Rushmore. My F-250 is a bit big for the alley, but the Heep does a good job of precision backing

Had to stand on the back bumper while the wife backed it up to the trailer though...guess I should get a 2" ball for my 4" drop draw...my 2" drop draw was still too tall

Hey, care to elaborate a bit on that headliner fabric/foam replacement? I'm thinking about doing it myself and saving the $150 that the shop wants for the job...

Thats awesome mike
Care to elaborate on how you polished it? We have a buffer/polisher here, but I'm afraid to use it and **** something up after talking to my dad lol. Any good guides or products you can recommend?

edit:
And what grill is that?

Would love to elaborate, I will have a look around the forum and see the appropriate place to post it. If you would like I can PM you a few links.
What kind of buffer/polisher do you have ? You can not do much wrong if you take your time.
Basically the prep work is everything.
Detailing a Jeep correctly and polishing is 2 days work. 1 day prep and 1 day polishing.

The grill is a standard grill with chrome inserts. They are on US ebay, just search for Jeep chrome grill.
