Here are the half doors I picked up in Nashville, TN, for $300 off eBay. Will need to sand down and paint Khaki color. Would like to replace half door panels (black) to Khaki color if someone has a like-new condition for sale.

I changed the oil and lubed the front end. I also rotated the tires.

I picked up half door yesterday also! What's your plan on getting it re-painted to match your TJ? I don't want to spend lot of $$ to get it done, so I'm planning to do all the prep work, then get it painted by a paint shop. Don't know what to expect how much this will cost.

You shoud've bought my doors -- matches your color!

Yeah!! I saw that. I have a paint and body shop that does great work at a reasonable price. I will remove ALL hardware and take them to him.

Pissing anti freeze all over the place.. i replaced the lower radiator hose thinking it was cracked.. and the valve cover gasket because it had a small leak.


The antifreeze problem ending up being the water pump gasket corroding away, so i replaced the water pump as well. What a pain. Take of the radiator, fan shroud, fan clutch, blah blah blah.


and now my radiators leaking...gotta love it

Are you going to have them just paint over it or sand down old paint, prime and paint to match?
