Sorry to say it wouldn't be a gift, but I'll do my best work for the cheapest price. If you watch me do it, you'll see why I charge.

Don't let anybody talk you into taking it to any of these local shops. I put way more time and quality into my work.

I got bored yesterday. I had to paint something. It ended up being my wipers, painted to match. It's hardly noticeable, so I guess I'll leave it that way for a while.
I pulled the roof rack off and waxed the XJ. I got a few ideas for what's getting dp armored.

I've been thinking through this build. Based on a conversation about being "Overbuilt", I'm probably gonna consider this XJ just about done. The list of what I intend to do further is getting short. I know I keep kicking up lists of stuff, but I contemplate a lot before I act. As I read some of the previous lists, it starts to draw a huge $ in my head.
My thoughts are to call this XJ done, find a good 4dr w/ a d44 to do a 4.5" and 33's. I'll bog the hell out of it, and name it GRIMF8

So, it's summer time. I'm driving around with my windows down... listening to all the crap that makes noise with every bump I hit. I found one of my little issues. The fan shroud,at the bottom, has tabs that sit in two holes. Then the top has screws. THE BOTTOM RATTLES! So I put two screws through the holes into the plastic. I do notice that sound missing since I did it, so it helped.
Next is to fix the fender support on the front where the tires hit. I'm gonna keep a support in place, but redesign them.
It's a good thing I like having the time to think things out, so that my slow income doesn't bother me.

This stuff has a brilliant shine, I think I'm gonna paint the drivelines and the control arms too.

It's a floor epoxy, like you see in some warehouse stores. It looks like painted concrete. It's lasted on the floor of my shop for 4 years, and can still be brought to a brilliant shine.

I got the track bar and steering arms painted. I just like it cuz it looks different. One cool thing though, anybody that's not on the forum will think I upgraded
