Finished painting the endcaps and put them on. I hadn't posted pictures in this thread yet because of it.



Next week I might paint the door trim. I need to mask, plastic primer, wait 5 hours, then paint... so I need atleast one full day with good weather that I dont need to drive anywhere.

Krylon fusion doesn't come in rustoleum hammered black...

Today is the first rain free day in a while, but too much going on today to do anything to it but drive to work, class, gym, home. I see my membership expired this week. I'll have to buy a new one after the IRO group buy. (Too much money tied up). 81 ° and sunny Sat. Gonna go through and check all the bolts on the LA's and start the PB blasting for the new lift early.

Actually my Jeep is quieter than most stock ones (I didnt spend 5k in parts for nothing!) . If particle board is really that ****ty, i'll return it. You guys really think it sucks that bad?

Particle board is not a specific type, more of a category, of which MDF is included. There is low, medium, and high density fiberboard (and OSB, but thats a little different). MDF Is probably more acoustically sound that lower density woods. If your not an audiophile Nazi I don't know why it would matter (but I dont have any sub experience).

join the club, I'm tackling my other bearing hub this weekend. Both my Ujoints need help too.

OH! in other news, got the XJ back from the shop today. Holes were drilled out and helicoiled. Total cost..... drum roll drum roll drum roll.... $0.00! hehe they did the whole job free of charge. I'm a good customer there they rebuilt my entire rear brakes. Kinda pointless though cause I'm doing a rear ZJ disc swap this summer. Will be selling the practically new drum setup.
