Unwanted YJ build

Finally this little red 93 is getting the attention and resurrection it deserves. I purchased "Scarlett" as my son calls her, back in 2012 from a friend as my sons first vehicle. Shortly after that his grandfather gave him his Tacoma so the YJ sat. Well 2 vehicles later and after my youngest son passed on it and chose my 99 XJ as his first vehicle my oldest and I have begun Scarletts long awaited alteration from stock DD circa 2009 to more of a Overland style "do everything" mans Jeep at last.

what it is=
93 red YJ 2.5 manual
trashed interior
needs tranny rebuild
needs windshield and frame

what it will be=
v8 swap
auto trans
5 in lift
hardtop
a/c
full doors
tire swing
roof rack
bushwackers
steelies or some form of black rims
33-35's
body armor
front locker
etc.

So right off the bat I could tell my son was having some trouble imagining the finished product so I'm taking the diet approach."Lets see some results". So I started on the axles and suspension in order to get Scarlett off the ground and I started my son on clean up and some cosmetic rattle can jobs for the time being.

I must admit I felt a little stupid spending time, effort, and paint on the D35. I'm trying to "Let" my son pay for as much as he can of this project so for now the D35 is going back under Scarlett.

I myself thought the spice would look nice but I was over ruled by three teenagers. Goodbye spice. Black and red dash it is.

Looks like Rustoleum bed liner on the plastics and black tape on the dash pad? I bedlined my door plastics but couldn't figure out what to do with the dash pad.

Good eye. There is one strip of a cloth tape I use for about 1001 different things covering the ridge were the cracks are. It will be replaced but changing a dash pad is something he can tackle on his own after the jeep is on the road. The paint is actually Fusion plastic paint. Used it for yrs. Good stuff.

As she sits right now. Plan worked. My son is loving the way its coming along and actually getting the gratification a DYI project. I'm glad because he is used to driving around in a 2013 R/T Challenger.
