Found this beauty for 100 bucks on craigslist. Yj hardtop. Yes, looks like ****. He had already cut the front lip to fit a tj. But he didn't add any latches up front so he only had it bolted down on the tub. Going to add some latches, sand, repaint, tint the windows and have it on the jeep by fall. Keeping an eye out for some cheap full doors too.

I started a thread somewhere else too..but I picked up some yj doors for 100 bucks. 2 sets. neither were perfect, but i figured id just fix one, and sell the other because everything on the other set at least functioned but was missing on of the little windows, which is why I opted to repair the other set because I just had to replace door handles. So i made my money back already by selling the second set. I then turned around and spent that 100 again but on new handles and weather stripping and going to get the paint to repaint them. So in the end, all this is costing me is 75-100 dollars. Started stripping the doors of handles and panels. Going to start sanding and painting friday. All new hardware should be here by tuesday the latest. heres some pics so far
