I much prefer Liqueur... but I try not to drink on Sundays. Figure my liver could use a break from the daily routine.

The wife likes her wine, doesn't do it for me. And beer just makes me feel bloated. A nice tumbler filled with Patron really hits the spot though. Smooooooth.

Did my pinch weld today. Wasn't very difficult. It's scary how quickly you can slice through metal on the WK with a sawzall. Made 3 cuts in the pinch, heated with a torch, and folded over with a 3# sledge. Put a couple welds in after. Not as pretty as the thread from the other day, but I got some good penetration. It's very difficult with the stick welder, I need to invest in a mig. Afterwards, I cleaned it up, primed it, and finished with 3M rubberized under coating. I left the liner just the way it was. I don't have any rubbing currently, I did the pinch a s a pre-caution after seeing A.J.'s on-trail pinchweld repair.

Also tinted my front windows w/ 20% film. Couldn't take any pics because I was afraid to stop while working.

Good job Buda. Wish I'd done my pinch weld the way you did. I just beat the crap outta mine....took a couple of days to get over that one.

Thanks. I was inspired by the earlier pinch weld thread done by the body shop. Good timing on that one, as I was already planning on doing it this weekend. The torch makes a huge difference. Softens it up and allows you to easily fold it flat.

Would have had it done in two hours but a fellow forum member who lives in town stopped by for an intro. So we spent about an hour talkin' and checkin out each others rigs.

He's got a '98 TJ lifted on 35's w/ lockers front and rear. Not too shabby for a 21 year old.

Yeah, stock wheels. Too cheap to buy new ones.
