Today, I got the hole cut for the blazer heater motor to fit. I also painted one rim to see how it would turn out. I like it a lot! Raptor bed liner should be in this week so I will be putting that in this weekend!

Sanded all the rust off the tub and then applied this rust killer:

Cleaned and painted seats:

See the rear of the camaro!

I am also selling the front bumper and side steps so PM me if you are interested!

My dad brought it home from work years ago. I'm not sure where you can get it. I know there are similar products available, how well they work I couldnt tell you.

This stuff works great though!

Oh well. I was hoping that I could get it locally because I am out of the stuff I normally use. I have some things I was going to do tomorrow. I just use some of the rattle cans i have already. Thanks man.

You're progress looks good!

Thanks to you I had to go and buy some of those LED's on Ebay. That looks absolutely awesome! I would love to see where you placed them inside the speedo when you have time. Keep up the great work!

Think the bumper and side steps will fit a 76? I might be interested. The wife says if I don't get side steps soon she won't be Jeeping with me this summer...

Ratmeister, I pm'ed you.

Sorry I didnt get to do the write up on the gauges. I just got home from work and it is 1030EST. Hopefully I will get off early enough to do it tomorrow. However, on a better topic... the Raptor bed liner kit came in today so that will be going on Saturday!

Update: Well Saturday my dad and I spent about 5 hours prepping the tub to put the Raptor spray in down, only to find out right before we were about to use it that they sent us the wrong kit. They sent us the tintable kit and I ordered the black kit. So now I have to wait another week for the right kit to come in, meanwhile the Jeep is sitting outside in all the different weather elements.

Good news, I did pick up a new grill on craigslist for $75 that was in mint condition! Now I just need to get a new radiator. Any ideas on where to pick up a radiator for a decent price?

I bought mine from Alumarad on Internet for about $230 shipped to my house. It seems to be good quality and is keeping my 258 cool.
