Today 08:59 AM
Ralph77 So I let that piece on the seat soak in the Evapo-Rust for about 24 hours.
And this is already used stuff. You can keep reusing it till it gets black.
I did wire brush it a couple times yesterday after it had been soaking for a bit.
Imagine if I used fresh stuff. Probably would have looked like that in less then half the time.
Going to do the other side now but it is no where near as bad as this side was.
Today 07:34 AM
RedJeepster1 The start of a long day today!

RedJeepster1 After spending some time cleaning up this used trailer hitch this week, I bolted it up to the Jeep tonight. Nice to finally have a tow point on my fiancé’s Jeep. Now I just need to put the flush mount LED’s and trailer wiring in the rear bumper, paint, and reinstall.

Ralph77 So I decided to turn my attention to the back seat bottom.
Figure clean it up best I can. Going to get rid of some rust first.
Wired brushed it and going to let is soak in some Evapo-Rust. Using stuff that I have already used.
Depending on how clean it comes out will either spray it real quick with some spray paint or maybe
hit is with some of that rust converter crap.
The front heated seats that came with this rear seat were in pretty good shape.
Never have I seen a back seat trashed this bad and look worse then the front seats. LOL.

Ralph77 So since I am running Agate heated seats under the seat covers I decided to use an Agate seat for the back too.
I picked out the worst upper and bottom from the 2 sets I have. One cause I have to cut holes in the upper for the headrest mod.
They are going to be under seat covers anyway so.......
And two cause if I can ever find any Camel heated seats, the color that should be in my '00, I will sell the Agate ones.
Figure sell the nicer back seat with the fronts.

Speaking of which if anybody has any Camel, found in '99 to '01, heated leather seats for sale in really good shape contact me.

So I have never had a problem taking the cover off the upper part until now. The zippers were corroded and frozen.
There are 3. One across the bottom and ones on each side. The bottom I freed up. One side I freed up after soaking it in Evapo-Rust.
The other side I could not get to unzip to save my life. But I was able to get the seat cover off with just unzipping the two.

On another note best I can tell replacing the FM Modulator stopped my 6 CD Changer from kicking in and out like it was so.....

I sold a pair of manual 2nd gen doors for $400 that had barely any rust.

Ralph77 The listing is probably long gone now but on Craigslist awhile back I saw what was listed as brand new Mopar door for a 2 door.
I think the asking price was $100.
Can't remember where but I do remember that they did not say for what body style.

I may be wrong but not the $350 per door I've been seeing.

kluttsy01 Picked up a brand new set of flat fender flares. On a side note, does anybody know where to find 2 door xj doors? (So. Ill.)

RedJeepster1 Well yesterday I took mine out in the woods for a few hours. Successful day. Today we took my fiancé’s Jeep to the lake for a few hours. Also a successful day.

Ralph77 So today I figured cause it was going to rain and haven't really done anything since I went back to work would do something concerning the rear seat headrest mod on the porch.
Decided since the front seats are Agate would run a Agate rear seat. Picked the worse back and bottom to use out of the 2 sets I have.
Going clean it up the best I can today and that is it.
But one thing I am going to try is the painting the carpet on the back of the upper part with that SEM Color Coat I tried out on the door inset.
It is made for carpet. Going to get covered with the seat cover eventually so figured lets give it a shot.
But not today cause I want to try on a less humid day.

Thanks for that.
That is like my old headlight harness relays too that I had to replace with a Dorman one I found that worked in its place.
I might do that. If I ever get to putting in the aux fuse box and the bezel for factory switches in the overhead console I will have an extra spot for switch for that.
It is a 4 slot bezel. I figure I will run one for the lights I want to put on the brush guard. One for some rear lighting. And I am going to set one up for those big LED's
light bars that go on the roof.
That last one I will probably never do though.
I was just going to wire up a fourth fog light switch just to fill the bezel.
But now....... LOL.
