Few pics of what I've been doing to the jeep

After sitting for about 5 years I decided to work on it again.

Had a rear main seal leak and fixed that. Bone dry now.

Had a leaking steering box and installed the Hummer H1 box.

I also bought a steering brace.



Decided to install carpet.




That's what a $100 worth of stainless hardware looks like.



Pulled shocks to paint them. What a PITA



Dyeing seat belts



Painting shifter and roll bar




Installing the center console and can't get it to line up with the carpet so this is where I quit and grabbed a beer.



I hope to have the interior back together this week then on to the engine compartment.

Rebuilding the carb, going to upgrade the ignition components. Replace all the hoses, rubber fuel lines, belts and spark plugs.

That's it for now.

I bought a kit off ebay sold by JC Whitney. $165

The carpet has a jute backing and heal kick pad. It's just OK quality wise. I wasn't expecting much for the money but it looks decent. I have a fiberglass tub so fitment may be better with a factory tub. I had to fight the rear wheel wells a bit but it turned out nice.

I emailed a couple companies that sell this carpet in this price range and no one could give me an answer on fitment in a fiberglass tub and no one other than JC Whitney had a picture of the actual carpet. That's why I went with JC Whitney.

For the money you'll be happy.

Got interior back together today.

Looks good. Nice work.

If you always do what you've always done. You will always get what you've always got.
