It is looking really nice ashland! I didn't even think to make my own bikini top!!! Cheese and rice.. I don't know why.. I sew all the time! Next time I see you driving around town I am totally flagging you down I need to get a closer look at this top you've made.

some fenders would be cool.

ok guys the insurance claim is going through slowly but surely so I should have a camera again in a week or two.

This weekend is going to be the biggest one yet for the build, ill be putting my creativity to the test. Im going to build my own tube fenders and frankly im a little nervous about it. I really think it will be a good investment though, since I made that bikini top I would step up on the fenders to do stuff to it and I noticed the stock fenders are denting and even cracking on the edges.
Sure you could tell me to just not stand on my fender flares but the fact is im rough on my little jeep and there is no point to keep building this thing if it cant even take me standing on it. So tube fenders it is, I talked myself into it

here is what I want them to end up looking like.

How are your hands doing? Did you buy a good pair of leather gloves for shop work?

Yup, im going to make some 1-2 inch tube fenders to the back as well, but that will be in a week or two. Im only able to fab on the jeep at my grandpas for 2 days at a time due to the fact the garage is 50 miles away and its my daily driver. And Im just not doing the finishing touches in preparation for paint, tube fenders will get done now so I dont have to repaint later. Ive decided 100% that I want to paint the entire YJ with monster liner. It cost about the same as quality paint and its easier to put on.

Although there is still a small sound. Its not very load but its the pistons and i can here it more under the jeep. Is this normal for the 2.5l?

ok guys TUBE FENDERS ARE DONE!!!!!! Im really impressing my self with my creations. Less then a year ago I didnt know a single thing about cars let alone jeeps, but I guess I found my skill. I will be picking up a camera so I can take some good pictures this week but for now here are some crappy cell phone teaser shots. Took me 26 hours of straight work by myself to complete and I did that in 2 days. I was WOOOOOOOPED.

OK, got pitures of the tube fenders all bed lined up and Ive got to say I LOVE THEM!!! No smittybuilt or metal cloak could make me happier. They cost a grand total of $85 and ive got 8 inches of uptravel available. Let me know what you guys think.

OH, BTW i took off the rockers because they looked horrible with the tubes because they didnt line up very well. This gives me a chance to finish up some body work and my next project will be building new rocker guards.
