If you find a set of full doors and decide that you want to sell the half doors, let me know.
Andy ,if ithat something you want to entertain. I am buying a new top (Best top oem) I sure I could order the upper skins in your color. I also paint. No pro but hold my own. I buy paint from paint scratch has an excellent paint matching history with me. they matched 30 yr old Porsche paint color for me once. the only other thing to deal with is the interior panel color.

Thats way cool gig! I'm guessing you go into the foothills and mountians to check those ares out?
If its ever posible or on a weekend i would like to see some of the sites.

Are you a sporting clays guy? I go out there for their clays course fairly often. Once the county course opens I'm not renewing though county is much closer for me, and cheaper.

We budgeted our Christmas gifts big time this year so I'm making an effort to find alternative gifts for dani.

She has this big ole eddy air cleaner for the nova. 2 issues. 1 it doesn't fit right because it hits the coil and the fuel inlet. 2 it's seen better days.

I ordered a spacer for it for 5 bucks on amazon and then spent 2.5 hours polishing it by hand and cleaning it. I'll get her a new filter element too and it'll look better than new!

I might polish her valve covers too but I'd need to reprint the black recessed areas.

Flat black paint and a scotch brite pad work great!!!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Nope, not me, but if/when we get a JKUR that has those rims, they'll be on CL in a hurry. I absolutely hate that design! I'll probably try to trade for some JK moabs instead, or sell for enough to buy aftermarket. $1400 is a bit much though. They should go for around $800?
