96 Cherokee XJ

Well, heres my cherokee country as I got it. Needed some medium mechanical work, as well as a paint job. 254k miles on the odometer, which doesn't work.
Runs like a charm however. When I got it, heres a list of things that were fixed:
-Replaced header (cracked in half, with about a 1/4 open gap
-Tune-up
-new motor mount

installed leds in the footwells, wired to the original footwell lights. Looks pretty slick. Also replaced the head unit, which was defective. In addition, put some alpines in the soundbar. I got the headliner done in that cloth with the tiny holes that the mercedes have. Interior is in ok condition. Needs a little cleaning and new seats to complete it

Got into an accident the 24 of december, taxi driver wrecked the front of the jeep. I was stopped at an intersection, and he sliced clean the front end. Frame was bent about 6 inches to the left. Here are pictures after the body work was done.
The white fender was replaced to the 97+ later on. I decided i liked the 97+ front end better, so that's what I bought

Heres my jeep after the paint. Never buy paint from Trinity 1945. Communication is horrible, and my Sapphire Metallic Blue came out like Barney plum purple. Does anyone know what I can do about this. It is acrylic urethane, single stage. At least it came out even, but the car has to be sanded, came out textured.
The paint was blue (last picture shows the blueness) when I started shooting, it was an electric blue on the first coat. Turned real dark after the third. Now, it hardened to purple I hate this color. I did use primer, and sanded the primer too btw. Here are some pictures

interior

the manufacturer of the paint says I can't return it because I used more than half. Paypal says the same. I don't know what I'm going to do, because painting again is not an option, neither is paying someone else to do it

well, the jeep has come a long way. Got a 4 inch lift, the paint has darkened to a midnight blue, and i got foglights.
I also got 460watts of bass, and another 400 of treble. Two speakers in the front doors, two in the soundbar, two tweeters in the soundbar, two tweeters in the dashboard, and two 12's in a bandpass enclosure

Two 100watt foglights up top. Two more on the bumper
I'm working on a spare tire carrier from a bronco ll.
Gonna rustoleum the whole car. The paint has lost its charm. Oh wait, it never had any
heres a picture

the lights

Lol don't hate on my rims. Those are collectors pieces. Just installed my airshocks, got 1" of lift. I only inflated them to 70psi, out of 200. Rides nice. Now my jeep is leveled out
