[QUOTE="jdanderson2"]My name is Dylan Anderson, and I am 15 years old. I have a navy blue 1997 Jeep Wrangler. I bought it for $3,500. It has 125,000 miles with a 4 cylinder engine. I plan on doing some big things to this jeep.

I am a student at Cambridge South Dorchester (CSD). I am best friends with trey Johnson (hardworkworks). Also play lacrosse for my high school.

First thing we did was fix the breaks. The emergency break wasn't even hooked up.

Stripped the inside down, took the carpet and seats out. Getting rid of the tan interior. Once we pulled the carpet up we found rust in the floor boards. Going to cut them out and replace them with new!

Figured out what type of liner I'm going to use. Monster liner! Looks like it will be a great product. I went and got 5 free samples!

The back seat covers came in today. They shipped the back and front seat covers separately. Pictures will be up when the front seat covers come in.

Thanks, yeah I spray painted them. But when I was done I left them outside and it gave them a matte finish instead of "smooth"
