More stuff... caught a little free time today.
I sanded and painted some epoxy that I used to fill a crack in the hard top. (Had to do this on both sides actually) It's no body shop job but it's strong as ever and hardly noticeable.
Then I ditched the license plate bracket, drilled some new holes in the plate, stuck double-sided tape to the back of the plate so it won't scratch up the tub and pulled out a mallet. I'm very happy with it now.
Don't stalk me
The "streamline" plate should go well with what I'm thinking about next: MCE Flatty Fenders, Genright ww2ww Rocker (that I may buy locally) and then something to get rid of the rear pocket flares.
The MCE fenders follow the body, i.e. they don't stick out any farther than the tub. I obviously need to remove the rear flares then but I don't want to leave the side bare with the mounting holes visible. (That looks terrible IMO)
The only solution I've come up with so far is a set of steel or aluminum corners, but that's going to seriously increase my cost of doing this
Here's the look of a Jeep that is what I think of as "narrow" - no flares past the body
I just can't figure out if 33x12.5's would look really awkward with no rear flares or not
