thanx rusty. I appreciate that,

it could pass for some of those RC videos of 70s suv's I have seen that look realistic.

I have to get some interior photos

the j-10 got tested yesterday

not planned,.....

girlfriend called, our 6 yr old lab had a seizure lasting longer than ever before

I hopped in, hit the road and held it on a 2 lane black top at 85 MPH

down a country road with straight aways and curves making sure I

remembered, this is not a sports car, be careful.

all went well. previously I had only got it to 55 mph.

our lab "Lilly" is doing fine after an injection to re boot the brain
( she takes gabapentin in low dose, she has had a couple seizures over 6 yrs )
mostly brought on by anxiety, anxiousness I think.

Yikes! That sounds like a real scare. Glad to hear Lilly is feeling better and the truck had the decency to hold together!

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

she went into each foot well,...

into the back and to and fro.......labs need an FSJ.

I'm not sure anything could get as much attention as granny did but a I've noticed that a Jeep tuck in nice shape does get it's fair share.

Very nice build! Just got mine out of the body shop and putting all the little parts back on (totally the fun part!). I'll be referencing your build a lot!

Where did you get your 3M wrap vinyl? I need to do this exact thing!

I can find the 3M Chrome no problem but I'm not sure which one for the silver. When I look closely at the original it almost looks like it has a brushed stainless look. Do you have a product number of what you used?

Chrome:
https://www.amazon.com/24x78Chrome-M...81565278&psc=1

I would not recommend that stuff on THE AMAZON LINK
if it is not one of the major brands I suggested...

hold off on purchasing anything
I discovered today I have some left over

PM me your mailing address....

the regular silver was just silver metallic

not brushed finish but they do make that....

FOR BRUSHED SILVER, SEARCH THIS ON EBAY

YOU WANT EITHER 1X5FT PEICE FOR 25.00
OR 2X5 FT FOR 50

1X5 PROB WILL BE ENUFF

3M IS WORTH THE EXTRA COST

USE THE SELLER NAMED
METRO RESTYLING

THAT IS WHO HAS THIS MATERIAL LISTING
