Hello from asheboro

Just checking in I guess. Well I sold my 95yj and my 98 mustang and a few other toys to clean up the driveway and yard (for my wife).

Then I found this 1990 2 door 5sp (st 6 cl) xj Its all stock leaking oil from everywhere possible, the interior is trashed, the outside is primer grey and rust, and I still havent made a list of all the parts missing.

LOL I didnt see any of that. All I can see is what its going to look like when I'm done with it.

Im 39 and work from home. I have a small web design company. 1 employee (my self) and work sucks in this economy.. So I have very little money and lots of time. But I love to work and build things..

So I guess I will be starting my new project here real soon...

I look forward to talking with everyone.

How are you at welding? I have a flux core welder and am having a hard time welding the rear fenders where the last owner cut them to far up..

I cant weld this thin stuff for crap.

If your willing to lend a hand I can throw some steaks on the grill and get the beer or dew what ever you like.

That would be awesome.. I could slip him a few bucks.. I got it spot welded all the way around. Was thinking I could use a cold weld epoxy over that to sand down and make it look better and then some 3M Automix Panel Bonding Adhesive on the inside. Here's the video for it.. But I dont know if all of this will work.. Let me know what he says or if he has the time.

Hey I watched that video on the 3m. I work in the auto show industry , and I think you could use that in lue of welding. My b law suppose to get back to me. But we use similar products for structural builds all the time. Welds break, that 3m should allow for a less rigid application. Think on it, have you found a cost or even a place to purchase it.
