Yeah i bet haha. I have no headliner now and it used to do the same thing in the winter. Sometimes theres even condensation if its really humid.

In original form there is a rubber mat that attaches with a bunch of zip-screws (plastic ones). It's to keep the dirt out, and the leaks contained, barely.

Usually it ends up hanging down and people rip it out, not realizing its benefit. I actually still have mine. I'm going to remake it in panels of dp.

I've started seeing how there's too much shine lately. I've been debating on doing black liner over some of it.

If you spray bleach on it, it etches the metal. I've been experimenting with some of my scraps. It'll be ongoing for a while, I'm sure it's biggest test will be the flux, going from 90+ to -45 over a years' time.

Use muratic acid to really etch your diamond plate

It's all aluminum, will that be too strong?

Depends on the grade of aluminum I guess, I have acid etched 5356 and 6160 with great success using muratic acid. Brush it on and rinse it off with a hose.

Here's the stuff I used on the diff covers. I can tone this black, it's actually floor epoxy.

Why dont you just scratch it up by hand instead of using acid?

Acid etching will give you best surface profile next to sand blasting

97 xj

I got an e-mail asking where I've been, I'm new at this, but I wanted to reply. My 97 Sport would start fine, run till warmed up then start missing, backfiring, etc, well long story short, the entire exhaust system was shot, a friend replaced it all, the problem remained until he replaced an 02 sensor just ahead of the cat converter, it's run great ever since. Now I am looking at different wheels and tires, "action crash parts" wheels are priced right, but are they OK? Thanks
