Its either gonna be this or I am gonna sand the hood down and satin black it. Won't look too bad I don't think. I mean there is no way I can make it worse. My only concern with putting vinyl down is that the paint is already gone to the point of bare metal in some places which is rusting a little. I think the only saving the hood is to take it down to bare metal, prime it and paint it right. I think the best alternative until that is to scuff it smooth and rattle can it for now. Not trying to make it look like poo, just trying to save the hood from further damage by the elements. Snow is here soon, that means salt. So I best get on this soon!

Amazon is getting money from me tonite!

As well as that I am also putting some headlights in it.

From Amazon part#B007KBL8TE as a whopping $45 they are non sealed glass bulbs that have the H4 bulbs that plug in the back. Then we can do lifts and snorkels and 40s

Besides putting the bumper on I need to paint the hood. Also need to get a headliner and then I can start mods.

FISTFULL I had some leftover Raptor Liner, so when my head liner started to come down, I took out the board. Used my shop vac to suck off all the crappy foam and sprayed the board with the Raptor Liner. I get compliments on it, if someone happens to notice it. I can also tell you I didn't spend 6 hours on it, maybe 5 and a 1/2. But, it will never sag again!

Either way, make sure you don't use spray glue if you want it to last through the heat.

Thanks for that writeup I will use that once I get to that stage of fixing this thing

Amesbear Regarding the headliner: I went to the local fabric store and got the thickest felt they had, bought two cans of spray glue, and spent 6 hours of my life I'll never get back. It worked but I'll never do it again.

FairlanePhil Sorry but you literally said ANY suggestion was appreciated.
I guess cammo or grey like every other person with a sagging headliner - but if that was what you wanted, why even ask?
Just go to hobby lobby and look at the shelf and post a pic when you are done.

I actually do plan to do something crazy with mine because it's 16yo POS truck I paid $1200 for and i have a sense of humor.

Good luck with your project

USAFRecon Confused here. Why is it when I have a serious inquiry people think its completely fine to be a jackwagon? Phil, uncalled for. Completely.

Been a bit as I have been busy. Got a starter on the Jeep and sorting out various issues. I bought this knowing fair well I would have to deal with some issues. Well in typical fashion there were issues I wasn't even ready for, nor knew they existed.

Exhibit A




I wasn't expecting a deal tail light bulb to be a hacked wiring mess. So fleaBay had one and I got it on the way.

Other thing when I bought it sounded a bit like a diesel. So I threw on a starter and tightened up the flexplate bolts and now she sounds like a 4.0 again. I will have some wheelin pics up soon.

And hey, if you didn't know, the light harness on both sides just unplug. Just remove the panel where the spare tire mounts to a ta da, unplug old one, plug in new(er) one.
