I bedlined my grille last weekend. I like the way it matches the texture of the bumper and fenders.

I kept the original and picked up a used one off ebay. That way if I ever want to go back to stock I can.

Also, I am going to be adding a home made grille insert hopefully this weekend.

finished of the trimmed fender liner. A quick and easy fix to stop it from flapping.

I went to Lowe's and got an L bracket (B7140 - about 2") and at Adavanced Auto I picked up some universal trim retainers.

Posted Image

I removed the first bolt right by the wheel well.

I used a 3/4 Uni-bit to open up the holes on the L bracket because the bolt hole did not line up with the bracket (it was a tiny bit off) and so the trim retainer would fit.

I placed the L bracket between the two metals. I marked where the other hole would hit the liner and marked it. Drilled a hole through the line for the trim retainer and then inserted the retainer. Some primer and a quick black retouch and done.

I replaced all of the lower control arm bushings on my TJ. They were in terrible shape.

I also added the universal holder sold in Quadratec.

Smokey, Goblin,

The bedliner front grills really lend a tough look to the Jeeps. Nice job! I wonder if the coating has any impact on radar detection :tongue1:

Well, i stripped down the frame last weekend. Got rid of the fuel and brake lines, dropped the tank and removed anything bolted down. I started to remove the rear shackle mounts for the front springs but i couldn't find any cutting wheels. I was able to drill out the top of two rivets but ran out of time.

Posted Image


This weekend i had to put the frame aside to consentrate on stipping parts off of the tub. I was able to get everything i needed off except for the seat belts and two steel plates for the show bar.

The build is going slow but it's not too bad considering this is only the fifth day that i work on it. Just have to consentrate on the frame first then work on swaping in the glass tub.

I think the window frame might be a little too far gone...Just gonna keep it for the glass and wiper motor.
