Wow, your fenders look amazing. I need the side roof rails sooo bad! I'm excited for this thing to get under way. I'll be back!

Thanks guys. On the rear fenders I thought maybe I could sand it back down and put some body filler in those cuts. I'm not very worried about it but I thought I could eventually clean it up a bit. I'll be doing the front fenders on my next day off.

Still need to fix my oil leak and hard to start issue.

I feel ya, we bought our house not too long ago, me n the wife are going bat**** crazy we've been so busy. I havent even got started on my 98 build yet either.

For all of us to live in KY we are still a good ways away from one another. Ive been to Somerset a bunch though, and is Maysville near Ohio line? If so Ive been there before too.

Hopefully we can all get our **** together this year n do something.

Agreed. The place I'm looking to get is 10 acres with a 1/3acre pond. Half woods and half hay field with a larg barn. The house only about a 1000sq ft and needs allot of attention but nothing I can't do. the girl I was seeing that had a son I thought I was going to adopt decided she was still in love his dad, her ex so she split. That hurt! But life goes on, so it's just me. So I can fix it up as I live in it with no problem. Super excited! I'll send pics if I get the place. I've got the banks backing, just have to make the deal and paperwork. But your right we are a pretty scattered bunch. And there are allot of lifted XJ's around here. I tell all I talk to, to get on the forum but I don't know.

anything look different today?

Cut the front fender and undercoated rocker panels and such. Haven't done the other side yet. Ran outta time. I'll take more pictures when I do the other side to show you all how I did it.

Now....whos got a new front bumper they'd like to give away?
