No that's fine thanks though and good!

this is the stuff i used

one of the back with carpet

the front with carpet

everything out except carpet

everything out and cleaned took over an hour to clean

bedliner in everything is done just put seats back in

back seat in with bedliner

when taking out the bolts use a pipe or a long extender of some sort it makes all the diffrences

what we didnt want bedliner on we put masking tape on and for bolt holes we put the bolts in and put the tape around the bolts

took off spare tire cover too

the doors too it is soooooo freaking hard to get it off it was just rusted on it took three people and a lot of pb blaster and wd40 to get it off

heres the door itself.

plus i realized the jeep was meant for me it has my initials and everything lol!
i would say i had a pretty productive day even though we completely ruined the fender flares
i have factory carpet from an lj still here ready to sell pm if interested

I have a piece of foam on the floor next to my powder coating oven that they sit on . I then put a blanket in between them . Its less than ideal , and I will make a door rack at some point , but it works for now .

yeah its no to hard to do just clean really well and you should be good it took us sooooo long cause well we are knew to jeeps and cars and not too mechanically inclined pluses we did a good couple of things that day but its going great still trying to find time to put on the lift and get new seats or reapholster them andthe fog lights don't work which isn't a huge deal but its bugging me and we need to get find aweek that we go without the jeep and send the wheels to get powder coated!!! but most of all I just really want to go offroading we haven't gone at all yet but I'm dieting to go
