Get the grinder out. Duh!




TA-DA! Stubby bumper.


Ok, yeah, kinda lame. But it's something. Gave me something to do for, oh, like 15 minutes.
Crap, what else can I do?

I rummaged through the remnants of my YJ parts pile and found these;


Green LEDs for the dash!(Shown next to the stock bulb.) I had bought them and never put them in so, in they went!

And never able to leave stuff along, I decided to spruce up my dash while I had it torn apart.
I used this;


To paint this stuff;


I also painted the panels/gauge bezels (no pics )

Oh and these..
Before...


After


Looks WAY better!

And lastly, I dug these out, and put them on/in.

Shifter and matching cig lighter lol.

Aaaaand I'm stuck for right now waiting on $$$$$$. I may pull my flares off this week, trim them a bit and paint them up. Something to do right?

Cheers
Diggin' the bumper Sparrows! Being broke will bring out the best in the creativity skills....and YES, might as well hit the fenders while ya' got the cutting wheel out! It should quell the urges till you get some 'cloaks again.

BTW, how does the Krylon hold up on the dash and doors Sparrows? I used it years ago but when people sat in my car they DID SO WITH HANDS IN THEIR LAP!! lol I was too picky to enjoy the damn car!! So anyhow, how's it hold up in a vehicle that sees more "human interaction"?

Holy subs! Thanks for all the sub's and compliments guys! For the next month it's mostly going to be just cheap/free mods and stuff. If you're into that, awesome! Me too!

If not, give it a bit and the big stuff will start happening.

I think everyone with a YJ is hard up for mod money these days. Just search through the forum and find those little free/cheap mods that keep you busy inbetween saving money. I wish I had another stock YJ to keep me busy, Ive already done all the cheap/free mods on mine lol
Thanks bud. Glad to see you here.
Yeah that's my plan, and I will for sure be posting some of the stuff I "make" my brother do.

I think he wants to keep it mild. For now...(we have all said that at one point or another haven't we? ) Something like 3-4" of lift and some 32s and a lunchbox up front. It'll do 99% of the trails around here and then some, but won't upset his lady too much!

I do a lot of that...Very soothing and relaxing to me.

Thanks. It doesn't hurt at all. It's been really refreshing actually. And humbling at times. All good things.

The Krylon holds up great. My last YJ had the dash, doors, etc painted with it and it held up awesome to the whole topless season, brush, my dog, my 5 year old, and myself! Best part to me is, at $4.00 a can and 30 minutes of my life, I can just repaint it every month for all I care! No matter what, its easy to touch up and get looking perfect again. But all in all, it holds up great.

I wish you would have made it. Just not the same without you and Vic there.

I can't tell you how fun it was though. We need to run that again before it gets too snowy/icy and impassible.

Cheers
