I never get a chance to do anything to the ZJ cuz the wife is always working. And I can't swap rigs with her cuz she's not allowed to drive the Devil.

I understand that. :P if I bring the CJ maybe we could work something out with painting it? You had to have painted your XJ thats to clean to be factory.

I love a good compliment. Actually, my XJ is my prime example of my abilities in restoration. People said the same about my '87 XJ. I'm a professional buffer, who takes pride in how well the job can be done, not how fast for the sake of profit I'd be glad to do whatever is necessary for the CJ.

Washed 'er up today. I can't get a pic from any angle without the glare.

I got the dp accents ready to put on my chrome door handles, the radio antenna will go on tomorrow, and the mud flaps with the dp supports will go on tomorrow
A fluid change for the tranny, transfer, and both diffs will be done tomorrow also. Then I'm going hunting for a Cobra and the whips will get mounted if I get that far
I've decided to get the Subaru running again before I do the vinyl due to the number of things that need done to do the whole job.

The devil took my soul, I see
Within Hell, I remain to be
Those I've lost, I no longer miss
Within Hell, I live with this

The angel overlooking my soul
Using me for his own evil goal
My sanity reduced to near collapse
Intolerance grows as one of the traps

The rage that has come over me
Leads me to the pain I seek
My shattered heart forever exists
Not to be healed with my fists

So now I see the evil in me
The Devils persuasion made it be
I will gladly be the outcast
So you, that shine, will forever last

I've really been trying to get away from being the epitome' of depression. Projects have been getting worked on in my living room since I have no gas to get to the shop.
The radio antenna got done and works great, compared to not having one. The dp accents for the exterior door handles are done. I need to remove them for the gluing process so the black handles will be on for a few days. And I got the mudflaps ready for install. I'm still trying to decide if I want to put the diamonds facing the tire so the dp can be seen in the wheel wells, or facing the back in which case the diamonds will almost not be visible.

Ya, I'm kind of leaning that way too. More cuz 1. Facing the tire it would always be covered in crap anyway. 2. I don't need the tread getting worn from making contact.

The dp is mostly to increase the attachment surface so they don't angle inward and snag the tire.

Round the edges then hit it with a flap disk to make sure they are smooth.

The top of the dp is getting attached to the fender liner so those square corners will not be an issue.

So, I really over-thought the support plates. I ended up putting the mudflaps on without the dp.
