Well, I'm a month or so into my restoration / build, so here's the start of my build thread. Sorry, it might be a bit boring in the beginning.....3 kids, wife, long hours on the job lead to a slaw pace for any build. BUT....I do like to take pics
Basically, I want a Willys Edition Themed YJ....so at some point I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of where to buy the badging from the TJ's Willys EditionAnyway, I bought this 94 4cyl for $1200....very minimal rust, mostly around the widnshield frame
The first thing I did was remove some of the exterior pieces and prep and paint them
i like Rustoleum Hammered. I've used on some Olympic weights in my workout room and it seems to hold up great and I like the finish
This is pretty much how my top came....in a pile of crap....lol
I took the grill off completely and prepped it and painted it as well with the Hammered and then did the front portion with Rustoleum bed liner in a spray can.....it came out well and I'm hapy with the results.
As I'm painting each wheel, I'm taking the brakes apart and cleaning them. I've taken the calipers apart and greased the moving parts with brake grease so the calipers move freely.
Then I painted the reachable areas with some spray paint. POR 15 is going to be a next Spring thing....it's lasted 16 years without it...it can wait one more
