Using single stage my self as well, just wondering as it looks like you did a nice job. I've found the PPG Shop Line brand, although a little more expensive shoots better than the cheaper brands.

I just put my order in for a gallon kit of Monstaliner and ill be soon ready to start putting it all back together

But for now all i have left to paint is the Hood Doors and Grill cues im still thinking i am not going to reuse the fenders , i do have something in mind for the grill though
WOW! !!

Look what I have missed in the last few days, looks absolutely amazing! Great job man, hard work truly pays off

Feels great to inspire and be inspired by other jeep owners. What makes this hobby that much more enjoyable.

Can't wait to see it all put together

Thanks Man

I know i am all excited too because there is a few things i have planed for the paint that i am not telling till i get it done, Thinking it will look pretty sweet


But on a side note, i just went to put in the brake and clutch pedals and guess what ??????? the did not fit right, Just my luck so anyone looking swap out tubs for a older tub like this one is a 1988 the are slight differences in the way thing mount up i ended up having to drill out new holes for that and there is no holes for other things like the computer, rear seatbelts, the one rollbar bolt on both sides dont line up ect....... so just wanted to put that out there so people know what to expect

but here is a few pics to enjoy whilst i go get some more work done

Awesome build man! Love the frame repair job. It's really coming together. Yeah, when I did the Raptor liner in mine the smell stayed there for awhile and can really get to you while your applying it. What are your planning for the spare tub and frame?

I have confidence that you'll get it all sorted out and working. The trailer idea is awesome. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
