    finding the time is still an issue

    Looks like a pretty decent deal you got yourself there, Warren.. Even though it's a ZJ, still look forward to seeing buildup of it..

    It sound's like the bull bar I have bought for it is off an XJ so that has to be close .......

    Got most of the roof lining glued backon tonight have left the edges till tomorrow night as I want to be able to get the lining to stick to the curve, hope the glue I am using will hold

    ok no pic's yet ...............
    roof lining back in all other bits back in have the roof console ready to put up but the wiring for the lights are different colour and can't work them out ....yet
    it has been vacuumed out and even horror been washed with soapy water and a brush ................................

    the bits on order for quadratc aren't in stock slightly pissed but happens
    as for the front bar it looks like getting harder the more I look at it not only removal of the air bags and sensors etc. now the seatbelts need changed from the pretension one to the old fashion rocker ones
    may be a turfor may be the go ...... but where's the fun in that

    am using to tow the caravan back to camp this weekend and may be allowed a little play where we stay

    well she drew first blood last night a little oops getting the spring out.

    after having a look I think she may be lifted ?

    anyone know the stock height to the guard mines 810mm on average, have found 165cm to the roof bit hard to measure as she sits

    ok so the roof console is done not 100% happy but it can be revisited if required

    the lift is on hold not sure which way I will go, and don't like spring clamps any more

    the front bumper came off tonite it's a bit different than I expected time
    am thinking replicate the left hand recovery point and bolt/ weld the winch plate to that but would like a top mounting point to stop any downward flex


    suggestions

    and have started collecting bit's for the rear bar / tyre carrier
