no dough high line

WARNING!!! THIS IS NOT A SPELLING OR GRAMMER LESSON.


so i started to do "high line" fendes on my 98 tj.


pic 1(shittie i know, look at the time stamp) fenders are off. i started on the drivers side so i could just remove the 2nd battery tray and not fight it like i will have to do on the other side.

pic 2 i used tape to get the line i wanted, i started at th high part of the beval at the cowl and ended at the low side of the same body line near the hood latch.


pic 3 fangs. after looking at many pics of rigs without the 2k high line kit, there almost awalys a gap after you move the fender up. i going to try this but i don't no that it will work.



pic 4 no turning back now it took 4 harbor freight cutoff wheels to get both sides done.



next i have to mark the new hole locations to match the inserts on the body.

Oooooh. Can't wait to see it finished. I think about this now and again, but I will probably wait until I have mashed the fender a few times.

I did the same thing and so far I love it. Instead of drilling new holes, I reused the old ones and drilled 1 new one at the bottom. How did you handle the latches? The TJ latches were a PITA to work with, and although I got it, I might do YJ/CJ latches in the future. I didn't to a write-up but here are a couple of pics in case anyone is interested in doing it...











Sorry for the Hijack, thought it might help someone out trying to decide if they want to tackle the project!

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

after i drilled the holes to line up with the body, i put a level on the fender and put a self tapper in it to hold it in place.

pic1 i'll have to trim this part down to keep the curve of the hood.

pic 2 getting closer,

pic 3 i'll have to trim some more of of pic 1. it will be close but it doesn't look like it will fill it. i have a plan.

that looks good!

hi-jacks are welcomed here. the more ideas the better.


as far as the latches go, i think i'm going to use pins. they are a pain.

what did you use for the "molding/weatherstripping? i found some that goes on the outside of doors and such, but it's only 1/4 i would like somthing 3/4 or so to really seal it.

Not sure if you figure something out yet, but I bought some from some edge molding from Advanced Auto Parts, its really nice, it has adhesive in the slit so once its put on and let set, it sticks really well.

Why would you need to pin the hood?
Just remount the latch, or if you don't like the look,
what about moving the whole thing back on the fender a little.
