I think KeyParts are one of those companies overseas that make crash panels for the Jeep CJ. Korea or Taiwan made pieces that are exact dimensions so they fit but on the down side they are a little thinner in gauge. Only 1mm thick and not 16 or 18 OEM gauge. Still, on the floor you will never notice and it looks good from here.

I can see it has the proper holes in the right location for E-brake cable, drain holes and even the holes for mounting the factory side steps if you have them. MD Juan Repli-tub parts and flooring would never have those holes.

Looks good Paul. How is the fit of the "S" curve corner compared to the tub? It looks to match pretty well. I don't recall hearing of KeyParts. Is it a rebrand of MD Juan's stuff or a different stamping?
Nightmare is correct, but hopefully it will end later today! The fit is pretty much spot on. I only had to persuade one small section of the S curve to match up.

Nooooooooooooo. I actually found the front pan easier to deal with than the section under the roll bar.

I will have to measure a cut off piece. I held it next to an OEM piece and it looked pretty close. It also felt sturdy handling the pan.

Not sure where they are made but they claim they are 18 gauge. I like them compared to some out there. They fit 76-86 CJ 7's & 87-95 wranglers. If they fit CJ 7's why wouldn't they fit a 78 CJ5? I'm talking just the front.

Very nice work Paul!

All welded up.... finally! Rough grinding done, just needs a little smoothing. Not gonna chase these to be perfect. I plan to use Evercoat FiberTech on my weld lines followed by glazing compound. Have to rebuild the bottom of the "A" pillar next.

Good Deal, looks great. Yep, after some POR I plan on covering the weld imperfections up with fiberglass filler and you'll never notice them. Hey, it's a Jeep ya know.

I always like to grab a six pack of something different when I go to the grocery store. If you have never tried Third Shift.... it is VERY good!

We can't buy beer or wine in any grocery store here in Pennsylvania either. Have to go to 'Beer Store' and PALCB controlled liquor store for wine and spirits. Pennsylvania is the largest buyer of liquor in the world by the way . My wife is a manager for the PALCB (Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board).

Third Shift is pretty good. Parents bought some in eastern Texas this weekend. Worth a try.

So the JEEPForum (CJ section) should probably get a pretty sweet group discount then right???? As a wholesale vendor of course.

Hah, she can't even get discounts herself! She/we pay the same price like everyone else.
