    Traveling today, but it's a good day for the 70 to get new shoes. 31 x 10.5 with some bite. White rims!

    Backed her out to bake in the sun. Letting it cure then maybe buff it a bit to try and get more shine then to put it all back together again (y)

    Lol! It’s sore! I got one of those Rustoleum spray paint guns and it works great for awhile then the paint builds up on the tip and drips...:steamed: so that wasn’t used very long.

    I guess I never thought I’d be doing anything worthwhile to start a build thread but I guess I should!

    Had to change the Lt fr wheel bearing on the blue one. Been hearing a noise lately but could not hear well enough to know where it was. Near 40 yrs of heavy eq has taken a heavy toll on my hearing, so I got the wife to ride with me a few days ago and she pointed to the Left front wheel. Got my parts from RA yesterday. I've had some problems with the starter also lately so I took care of that problem while I had it in the air. Sorry no pics.

    So fellas here it is, my rattle can paint job. Buffed and waxed. I am working on starting a build thread but that may take a little while so I figured I’d share the end result here. Tomorrow I’ll mount the rear bumper back up and finish up a few odds and ends. So what did I do to my Jeep today? Put her in the sun and enjoyed the new look :D

    I also painted my fire extinguisher so it would blend in a bit

    Don't spill any lacquer thinner on it. DAMHIK! ( That means "don't ask me how I know," not "Damn Hick" by the way)

    Those are good pictures too!
