The tub hasnt been washed in over 5 months and still has grinding dust on it. Once I wash it and give it a little buff itll match.

Looks killer Angry, in the pictures I cannot see the Fuel filler area very clearly. IIRC you are using PSC rear corners, looks like you had them open them up all the way to the rear corner and added the weld on rear flares. Can you still use the factory fuel filler neck, do you have to fab something up for it to attach to the corner?

What does IIRC mean? Im actually using the Genright steel stretched corners. They provide a new location and plastic bezel for the filler. I'll take some pictures of it later.

Yeah, just wait until you start playing around with different lenses. Dang lenses cost more than the dang camera, lol! Goes hand in hand with rifles and scopes too I guess.

Buff it out, and send me some guardian panels and I will paint them. Then the whole Jeep that is really visible will be repainted.

haha thats always an option...o yeah dont forget the cowl

Got a few little things done tonight:

Installed the hood pins and front signal lights


Put in the plastic gas bezel. Rusty its a bad pic since it was dark but the corner armor moves the opening back and provides this plastic piece.


Rewired my CB to the battery and installed the PSC fender vents


Also was able to mess with the mounting point of my CB antenna, remount my windshield frame armor, and retighten all the jam nuts on my CAs.
