Its just THAT SHINY! That's the ground! lol!

Nice
I'm guilty as well...I thought the first picture showed some crazy imperfections...until I saw the mirror image of a foot above the fender flare!

Nice!

Thanks guys.

Copper I have been debating whether to line the inside with Line-x. I liked the Herculiner for the bottom but I dont think I would like it for the interior.

I am not really sure what I want to do. Part of me agrees that it would be great protection but I am balancing that with my desire to keep it as original as possible. I need to decide pretty soon though. At most this jeep, as offensive as it may be to some, will only see some ocasional light trails and mud.

My goal this week is to install the wiring harness, wire the dash and install the pedals, including bleeding the brakes etc.

I vote leave it painted, you've got enough protection with having the underside coated.
What a nice finish. You've set a high standard for restoration quality.

WOW!

I for one don't find it offensive. If I put as much time and work as you have I wouldn't take that jeep off the asphalt!

Wow! I've had to scroll back to that interior shot 4 times already. I can't stop looking at it. I'd hate to shoot any liner on it but it won't stay that nice for long once you start to climb in/out of it everyday. Maybe just shoot liner in the foot wells for the "high traffic" areas? Leave the tranny tunnel and area under the seats shiny. Great job!

Well since were talking about line X or whatever your brand might be.. How do you guys like it on the bottom of the tub? I think Fatman did his like that and now you andresesquire.. Just wondering how it will work when it gets dirty? Will it hold alot of dirt or will it come clean easy..


Other than that the jeep looks sweet.. Cant wait to the the rockers on it..

AAH....Besrk beat me to it!! I would say that great mind think alike, but based on what I have gathered on this site from pics, thread replys, and his reputation, my mind (and skills for that matter) aren't even close!! I like the "spray in" floor mat idea. Spray only the high traffic areas of the floors and definitely leave the rest of the floor looking like that. Use some of the natural body lines as a clean line and a divider and I think that would look really good. The paint is dark enough to contrast a little, but also accent the great paint job. It would be a shame to hide all that great body and paint work. WOW!! That looks great. Very envious!!

Ok I'm late to this thread but seriously, andre, this thing is awesome.

I would like to know if you thought about the TeamRush upgrade for the ignition?

I stare at those pictures every night for 15 minutes before I go to sleep. Your jeep was in a dream of mine last night. WIERD!/sad
I just hope mine looks that nice. Painting very soon (copper?)

Great job, keep up the pics.
