Here's another shot. The "paint" you see all over everywhere exept where it's supposed to be is actually just sanding dust, not overspray. So much for 7, that's right, seven, coats of paint.

That's just primer. It will get a spray-in liner, as the firewall, fenders & underside of the hood already have. I wanted to go with something thicker, like Line-X or Rhino, but this is the stuff my guy always uses, so it is easy & cheap. Besides, I'll be using one of those new Xynet floor coverings as seen in 4WD Hardware. So I figure between the galvanized steel, metal etch primer, more primner, the bedliner, and this Xynet stuff I'll be good to go. I will never use carpet again - just not worth it.

How hard was it to put on the CJ tailgate and move the gas filler hole? I may be wrong, but you did have to do that didn't you? That Jeep's looking really SHARP!

Honestly, I'm doing this alongside a pro, who has done a bunch of these swaps. As to the filler hole, let's just say that a plasma torch is a really cool thing to have. It's real easy to do.

I was going to ask about that tailgate and gas spout too. Good job. You really can't tell it's a YJ. What does the front look like? Did you keep it CJ or YJ?

It's all CJ baby! I might have a pic of the front at home, I'll post later if so.

Here is the tub after the holes were cut in the back
