You can buy them online, they are for the Grand Cherokees. They run about $25 each.

Came home and opened the garage and the fuel cell burped fuel all over the inside of the Jeep and my garage floor. I have had enough of this piece of **** for awhile. I need a break before I light it on fire.

Nah. Just need to take a break on wrenching for awhile. I told myself a year long build and I'm on track to have it done in a month or so. If I had all the parts.

I think I'm going to clean up the garage this weekend so I can get my car in there with the Jeep and let it sit. I dont like the way the factory hinges turned out so I'm going to get some powder coated ones.

To do list:

Install fuel lines and vent
Install seats
Install the rest of the body panels
Finish wiring
Decide on the stock dash or sheet metal
Buy rear Antirock
Buy Bilstien or Fox shocks
Install e-brake
Fix exhaust
Fix brake lines
Change all fluids
Buy wheel spacers
Paint wheels
Buy tires
Make front and rear bumpers
And probably 100 other things I'm forgetting...

Bedliner is wrecked from the gas. It will have to be scraped off and redone. Fuelcell mount needs to be repainted now as well.

Why did the cell have fuel. Did a line or fitting give out. Trust me if anyone hates this type of issue or understands it, it's me.. I went through a bunch of problems with both fuel cells and leaks.

Sucks about the bedliner. I would be so pissed.

Yep it would be a burnt crispy chunk of metal in the middle of the road if it was mine. Dang that sucks but at least it happened before you got it all back together. Step away for a little bit and come back after your not mad anymore.

I haven't done any work on it since last week. I need a couple weeks off from wrenching, but I did get this picture from the painter.
