Every silver XJ (that hasn't been taken care of) I see has it there.

Not sure what to do, love the silver but won't be able to *not* paint it.

Want to fix my front doors so they lock, I bent the rods that connect to the inner handle.

What are those rods called? I can't seem to find them online.

Hey man .... I'm going to cut my doors to half doors soon ... maybe over the next two weeks If I had the time... You can have the rods from my doors for free if you want... just got to pay to ship them

Ordered putco harness, hella housings, and 100/80w h4 bulbs (because I'm an *******).

Debating on ordering the header panel or attempting to fix mine.

Also I was more concerned about RUST then bangs and bruises, I don't give a **** about dents, but I hate rust with every fiber in my being.

But will most likely go with something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Eastwood-Mid...08a40d&vxp=mtr

Unless I can find a nice single stage urethane silver, I am open to suggestions if you find one (mobbins or project1).

e: What color should I go with?
