Time to get organize. Im using this thread as a place to plan out my attack.
In this order:
1. finish removing various parts that are still on the frame (exhaust, fuel lines, etc)
2. sand frame to remove debris and prepare for POR15
3. drain all the fluids, repair bad seals, and check gears/TC chain
4. give the drivetrain a good once over with a degreaser
5. Sand blast all accessories that need attention
Side question, will one of those small sand blasters from HF do an ok job of removing paint from small items and rust from things like the leaf springs?
6. finish removing all the paint from the outside of the tub, hood, and fenders.
7. weld patches on the tub
----That should take me to the end of the tough stuff.
8. POR15 the frame, axles, and skid plate.
9. paint the outside of tub, hood, and fenders
10. bedline the underside and inside of the tub
11. Start reassembling the frame parts (exhaust, gas tank, etc...)
12. Refill all fluids
13. Put the tub back on.
------Now its time to figure out the electronics.
14. All the dash and interior parts and fixing everything that I missed.
So I am selling the full steel doors that came with the Jeep, they are in great shape and the bids are already up to $250 on eBay. Im also selling the nerf bar steps to make room for these (http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-ne...j8.htm#sliders
So between the sale of those two things, I should have enough to afford the necessities (POR15, paint, bedliner, etc...)
How do I know if my leaf springs should be replaced?
