First, great work on the Jeep man, from the frame all the way through to the paint job and the engine mod. Very rare the find an individual who has such diligence and to top it all off he is a Jeep owner, bloody awesome! I LOVE the white and black paint job it's absolutely beautiful. Here is my Jeep I purchased a few moths ago, it's black and white but not as awesome as yours and I think the previous owners used house paint:





I posted the 2nd pic in my first thread here and another user cleverly dubbed my Jeep's paint job as "parking lot camo" Your paint job is inspiring, awesome job.

I have recently been thinking of getting that same iDA-X303 for my Jeep, but I am unfamiliar with installing it. If you don't mind and if possible show pics of the installation..?

You made me go back and look. I peeled the seal away from the edge of the glass and used a new razor blade cutting at an angle to see if something would cut or peel up, all glass. Jeff said his looks green too and I think the gray material behind it makes it look darker than it really is. When you hold it up and look through it, it is not nearly as noticeable.

There is no doubt that I watch a lot less TV now than I did a few years ago.

Thanks,

Jeff,
I would say you got the wrong seal. Here is a picture of me holding the single groove for the actual glass open. You can see little ribs down inside the groove but there is only one main slit for the glass to sit in.


Here is a picture of the outside of the seal. My thumb is holding open the groove that will sit in the windshield frame channel run. The two small lips above my fingernail are not another deep groove just small lips which help to block the water from the outside. Hope that helps.

Thanks Mike,
You really helped to clear that up. I was in contact with Morris today and they are going to check with the manufacturer.(I lost the bag the seal came in)

Watch out for that snake. It might bite you when you finish if you don't respect it!

I'll have to keep my eye on those as they are pretty close. One nice thing about emblems is that you can put them on at any time during the build.

I just found these that might work well with all of my black and white and they are only $18 a pair. I'm going to wait until after I get my pin-striping, fender flares and cobra emblems installed before I decide if I want to go with anything else.
My opinion is that you have done so much work and spent a bunch of money on your build why not spend a little extra money if you decide to put the Shelby emblems on it. If it were my Jeep, I would kick myself if I went with the substitute emblem. I agree that $125 is a lot for something that sticks to the body, but I bet they will look ten times better than the others that have been shown here.

Again, my two pennies! Build looks really good either way

The Cobras are all you need. Anybody who knows anything will understand. Anybody else won't care. Don't overdo the "stckys"! My .02...

Agreed. Although I think the "Powered By" badges would look good, I just don't think they are a necessary addition.

You could get a set of those "powered by" emblems for free, all you need is to find a GT500 in a parking garage...

Thanks guys. I don't want to overdue it with the emblems that's why I want to see what it looks like with all of my original plans in place before I decide to add anything else.

I got my spring shackle hangers cleaned with Marine Clean.


Then I soaked them in a bucket of Metal Ready for about 45 minutes.


They weren't quite submerged so I had to flip them over and let them sit another 45 minutes to make sure they were 100% covered in the Metal Ready.


Since I only have a few pieces to paint I will likely brush on the POR15 then also brush on the Blackcoat.

The hangers look good. I just welded some heavy plate hangers onto my old Jeep that I had sold a year ago or so. The new owner tore off a front hanger and most of the other front one, too... I sold it to a friend so I still get to visit it and work on it!

Aside from a Nice Scrambler logo on my hood, here is what i'm using for emblems:

I think some sort of other engine identifier would be nice, too, but i don't have Cobra induction and Frod Explorer logos would be WAY too lame.

This thing is coming along great. I can't wait to see the finished product. Put me in for the total cost guess. I am willing to bet that it is higher than you expect. Took about 24 hours to read all of the posts, but that was reading on and off... I have things like food, sleep, class, HW, that needs to be taken care of too.

I'm not sure I'd be too keen on putting anything Toyota on my rig but it would go well with your hybrid themed build. You could always go with the standard 5.0 HO emblem for the engine.

Thanks for following along. Now that you're caught up it will be easier to follow.

A classic V8 emblem would be pretty slick on the back tail gate:

Maybe some kind of custom emblem Mike? I'd be a tough choice for me. I defiantely like the cobras.
