repainted my mirrors and windshield light mounts (they were pretty rusted); re-wired all my lights and found out that one of my relays is bad....

Also painted the underside since the factory didn't paint the underside of the seats.

did the passenger side first so I can still drive the jeep if needed.
Mine are terrible--I've flooded my interior a couple times so the bottom's of the seat are terribly rusty. Did you just spray them with Rustoleum or what?

just rustoleum. Probably should have sanded, but I didn't. A little better than it was.

Mounted the Passenger seat and ran all the wires.

Also put the seat cover on the passenger seat as well. Waiting for some glue to dry so I can connect the switches and put the dash back together

Installed a 3/4" spacer to level out the front of the 5.5" LA with my son (age 11). He's just starting to be interested in the Jeep mechanicals. It sure was fun wrenching with him! He's awesome with the air tools and torque wrench...

So, could the heating element be slide in without taking the seat out?

Took it offroad, and all I have to say is that GA red clay sucks. There's not a set of tires out there that would clean or save from sliding.
