These are comanche floor pans, but I assume they'll work for the XJ too. The transmission tunnel is curved, but the panel is straight, so it will take some bending to get it to fit. I still don't have mine welded in yet.

thanks, one bad thing about these dang uni-bodies. they rust like hell in the floor boards and rockers. But hey they go a to b and sometimes in between.

Great link. Looks like your off to a good start.

I've gotten a little work done this weekend. I disassembled my driver side seat, scrubbed it, washed it, painted the frame and now I'm just waiting on the cushions to dry to reassemble. Pictures on that soon.

I tackled the nasty door panels too. Here is the passenger driver door that I haven't done yet:

and here is the passenger side disassembled:

And here is the passenger side all done after cleaning and dying:

I also got my new gauge cluster ready to go back in:

I got the driver seat cleaned and put back together. It was a little more aggravating than I thought it would be. I'm looking forward to doing the other door panel. The other seat... not so much.

Just wanted to say that those are my favorite stock jeep rims of all time, definitely keep! Nice job cleaning, did you actually throw the cover in the wash, or just spray it with something?

could you post a pic of the build sheet, those are always cool!

Really? I don't like them very much, but I will be cleaning and painting them (hopefully this week) to give them some new life.

I took the covers off, sprayed them with purple power and scrubbed them real good. Then I threw them in the washing machine on the delicate cycle and let them air dry. Not perfectly clean, but much better than what it was.

Here is the build sheet:

Its a shame they put it right behind the armrest so the screws would punch those two holes.

Looking good. I did the same upgrade to mine. I used the black surround from the old gauge cluster.

I thought about using the black one, but I got a silver dash surround, so I think I'm going to try the gray for now. If I don't like it, its not like its difficult to change.

That should look good. I swapped the surrounds out after I installed the cluster. The black seems to go best.

The black does work well for yours. Pretty much everything in mine is either light gray or the gray blue color, so we'll see. My new temperature sending unit finally came in today so I'm going to swap it and the oil pressure sending unit.

Is your carpet from ACC black, dark gray or sandalwood (which I can't really tell on their site what color that is) and did you get the poly or mass backing? If I can ever get my floor patched, I'll need to order mine. Thanks!
