Getting Project 23 back tomorrow morning. I took the day off so I should be able to get some of the part reassembled. After that I will have Saturday to work on it since the wifey pooh is working all day.
This should be a restless night. Wonder how much sleep I'll get....

A few pix of the new paint. Can't really get any good shots indoors and it's raining out so outdoor pictures will have to wait. I will also have to wait on assembly since the numbnuts at the paint shop forgot to paint all the torx bolts for the hinges and the bolts for the hood hinges.
Oh well, I can always work on other things.....

Your photo reminded me of a question I've always had. On the standard steel CJ body, how is/was the seam originally sealed/connected/joined here where I've marked in red?

I don't know how the factory did it but after I did my cowl replacement I taped both sides of the seam, ran a bead of seam sealer and pushed it into the seam with my finger and then pulled off the tape and wiped off the excess. It worked perfectly. You don't even see the seam sealer because it is in the crack, not on the surface.

Very happy with the end results. I wish they wouldn't have forgotten to paint the bolts because I am flying solo on Saturday since the wife is working. I could have got the majority of the parts put back on.
Oh well, I will take my old and new wheels to the shop to have them transfer the tires.

Rub a dub dub
My wheel flares are in the tub

Getting a long overdue bath to get the dirt, grime, bugs, tar, etc. Though the wife didn't really appreciate me using the tub, she will get over it.
Now that they're all cleaned up I need to bring them back to life as they are dull and a bit faded. Anybody have any suggestions to bring them back to life?

I was able to spend an hour today with Project 23. I installed the grill, turn signal indicators on the grill, rocker guards, some of the spare tire carrier hardware, TJ license plate frame and got the Jeep onto the wheel dollies.
I also made it out to 4wd Parts to order some new carpet and flare mounting hardware. Also bought a new set of hood latches.
So once we are moved into our new place in two weeks, I will be able to devote more time to getting Project 23 back on the road.

WD40
Spray, soak, wipe before they dry.
It may take multiple times, depends on how bad they are.

There is a product that has been around for years and it works really well. I used to use it on faded black bumper trim on my vehicles in the past. Its called Back to black and its sold in many auto parts stores. Wal mart may even have it in the automotive dept.

I actually had a bottle of Back to Black in my hands today while out shopping. Thought it sounded like a gimmick sock didn't buy it. Maybe I should have.
