Test fitted the fenders before taking them to get powdercoated. Had to modify them a bit so that the hood didnt contact the tubes.

Finished the interior yesterday. I really like how much room I have for people in the back seat.

Rebuilt the doors and mounted the hard top. The Jeep completely seals up now.

Awesome. Guys screw around with suspensions and call it a build. You can honestly say you've built that Jeep.

I can't believe what i'm seeing, that jeep in the first picture you posted was completely trashed and now it looks better then new. Thats just insane, your dad is a god at painting, that red is amazing.

Thanks for the props guys. And trust me, these crappy cellphone pictures dont do it any justice. The paint turned out AMAZING.

Nice build! Bet you can't wait to drive that! Is your hood latched down? I'd hate to see a picture posted up of a trashed hood from the wind catching it.

I zip tied it on both sides to the grill using the holes for the hood latches. The hood isn't going anywhere. Thanks for the concern though, that would be a sucky day for sure.

The jeep runs and drives now! It has no brakes and no sway bar so it doesnt drive very well, but it does drive. That dual exhaust i added is LOUD. Im planning on doing a long arm lift though so it probably wont last too long.

So the battery was dead in the jeep this morning, which was confusing because i knew it was a good battery. Later i discovered it was the radio. The cd drive is messed up and wont shut off, running the battery dead. I recognized it because it happened to someone elses jeep that i know (i was the one who discovered it in his jeep). Since the stock radio is fried it does give me a good reason to buy a nice aftermarket radio though.
