You should leave the scuff on the passenger fender from when it was flopped.

I didn't have allot of free time today. I did manage to get the strykers, corner armor, drivers seat, sound bar, and dash pulled away from the tub. Hopefully tomorrow night I can get the rockers off and the fuel cell out.

Stripping the tub down to repaint. I'm going to leave the cage in. I'm pretty sure I can work around it. First I will use seem sealer on the bottom of the tub and then use duplicolor spray bedliner on the underside. Cut some brackets off the frame. Looks like there were nerf tubes welded on at one point. Get rid of that stock passenger upper control arm bracket and the coat it all with POR-15 along with the axles. After that seal up any unnessary holes in the tub and spray it with the tinted Raptor. Then paint the cage. Then paint the body. Hopefully figure out what I'm going to do for a tailgate. Stock, old CJ gate, something custom? Rokmen is toooo spendy.
