Lol. My tj has zero frame rust so far. For being in the Midwest I'm pretty happy about that.

A local fab guy. He made my bumpers to. Pretty good for a one man show in a 2 car garage!

But it helps that he's also assistant manager at our local fab shop. So he has access to all the fun toys.

That was fast. What all did it take to get it running? If you scrubbed up the wheels and sprayed them with some black, I'd bet they would look a bunch better.

I spent almost all day working on it lol. I put in a new header pannel, power washed it, and shampoo'd the interior. i have a set of stock spoke's that are going on it before i get to serious about selling it.

as for getting it running. i dumped a can of seafoam in it and let it sit over night. put a new battery in it, smacked the starter with a bfh, it cranked right up and ran like a dream lol

Nice when it works out this way. Hopefully you'll be able to turn a good profit.

I bought this for my trips this summer:



If you don't know what this is, when you have an hour to kill, look at these threads:

Yeah I'm pretty pumped. I was going to buy the older model because I don't need a terribly fancy one, but I found it for under retail. I'm going to be making videos of all kinds of ****.
