Sorry to disappoint, but the wood grain goes right back on. To me it just wouldn't be a woodie without it.

Yesterday's progress. Finished putting the front together and most of the back. Waiting to put the wood back on before finishing the back. Messed around with some electrical stuff and got started on the inside.

I think I got too much heat yesterday. I'm sitting under the ceiling fan today watching TV. I had good intentions this morning, but I'm wiped out.

Nice refurb, that thing must have been parked with rear facing south or west in Arizona, the wood grain looks like it took a beating.

I was curious if you are pleased with the replacement grill shell from TGW, I am on the fence on trying to refurbish my original aluminum piece are just getting a new one.

I wish they would put the black accent stripe around the perimeter.

It looks like the groove/channel for the accent stripe is there. I got some black pinstripe tape when I redid my metal surround. Its held up well.

Finally - two steps closer:
Working fog lights and working interior console map lights.



She's coming along now. The plan for this weekend is to get the wood siding back on, recover the overhead console and headliner board.

During the week work on getting the wood trim cleaned up and ready to install next weekend.

Thumbs up

I gotta be honest. When I saw the underside of your Jeep I was really jealous! Great job so far. Can't wait to see the finished product

Dam back problems again. I've been down for the last month and a half. Got me some new injections yesterday, so I did a little on the Jeep today. Of course, after I rode my motorcycle some - just enough to really irritate the back again, but at least I got the overhead console disassembled and prepped for the new covering. Instead of using headliner material, I'm going back with cordovan vinyl to match the seats.






If I didn't mess my back up too much today, I hope to get it covered and reassembled. Then to recover the headliner. And maybe insulate the inside of the rig. That might be too much tho.

Started putting the woodgrain on today. I'm not happy with it. Going to look for another route.

Recovered the overhead console. Still gotta put the guts back in it.


I'm pretty happy with it. The color is almost a perfect match.

Jim here are pictures of some of the woodgrain samples I got.
I can't find the do-noc woodgrain samples. If I find them I will post a pic.

I'm not happy with the way it turned out. No problems with the quality of the vinyl or the look of it, except that I think it looks a little too dark to be Marine Teak, but maybe that's just my eyes.

[quote=medinajim2000]Thought I'd test fit the new console. This lets me have rear air, cupholders front and back, power devices and a place to put the heated seat controls.




Love the console, what is it out of?

Got the front part insulated. I'm waiting to finish up the back part until my new roof grommets come it. Don't want any leaks.
