    Absolutely awesome you guy's! You and your son have a lot of memories there and more to make. Using it is definitely the best part!

    I like the color and texture of the paint job. They fit the beast nicely.

    Now, you either need a windshield or goggles ---

    Thank you! Been slow in responding because I broke my kneecap about 10 mins after I made the last post! LOTS of memories and we are just getting started! Thanks for all the help

    Glasses until the windshield shows up. Mirrors for state inspection, have since installed seatbelts too. Thanks for your help./comments.

    The floor replacement was easier than the dent repairs in the rear quarters and this is my first bit of body work I have ever done so it didnt come out perfect but I donít think there is bondo any thicker than 3/32Ē anywhere. We started with an aluminum baseball bat held under the rear fenders and I was hitting it with a 5# maul lol. Progressed down to body hammers/dollies and the slapper but never got it perfect. Was too far gone but for a first time and a high school kid we are proud and there isnt anything that really jumps out as poorly done (yet!).

    That is looking great. You are going to be an expert at early Jeep body work!
