The Steezy WJ build thread!

Hey guys, here's the beginning of my build thread for my 02 wj.


What i am doing so far:

Rusty's 2.5" Lift kit.
A cb radio (hopefully with large, humvee style, whip for you military folks)
Fix some paint and rust issues
Tow Hooks
Brush guard
-maybe lights-
roof basket
Replacement jeep badge

Right now, im waiting to have money to buy the lift kit.
So far i have taken care of one of the major rust spots.
(It got scratched, again)

Here is a full side view

if you're wondering what the sticker says on the side.

Here's the back

Here's my badge, dying.



I could use all the support and ideas you guys have!

Cheers!

LOL!

It's basically that simple. You technically don't even have to mask off something like that because it would peel right off of the surface due to the break between the letters and the paint.

Alright looks like thats what im going to do.
Doesnt it come off the surface you spray it on, so couldnt it peel off the badge as well?

Tips?

I have finally raised my jeep, nothing too gnarly, just two inches but it looks great, working on a little rust right now. Sorry about the pics, I'm on my phone
