Default V1.25. turd polishing

well it's been a short year it seems and wheeling the xj and driving it have taken it's toll on the body.




stopped REALLY driving it after this happened at bundy

but the gas tank leaked and I didn't want to weld while I was trying to fix it so.....
before


during


once you go purple you never go back




so after that was done it let me weld in this


there is plenty of stuff that isn't perfect, but it works for a beater and thats fine with me. next project will be the rear shackles.

Cool

hey if anybody complains. let em know how happy you'd be if they came over and did it better on their dime and their time!!

I have a lot of "learning experiences" on my jeep. but I did it myself and don't care what the nay-sayers think.




"shut up and try following me" . . .
