    Thanks, I will. Two doors have been non existent in the pick and pulls here. Everything of real value is snapped up by a Jeep only yard that has prices near to new stuff. Probably be up there Christmas some time

    Yeah. We have a local jeep/chevy yard (all they deal in) ok prices on some stuff and crazy prices on others. I bought an alternator for 25 that was tested before it was sold to me. Then I asked about manual doors and got 100 for just the skin. For around 65 I can get a full door at PnP.

    From looking at my door the 86s have a stud latch.

    I picked up some seam sealer and some flex seal to finish sealing up the rear fender wells. Also bought two 5" round convex mirrors for my flop shop trail mirrors. Going to paint them tomorrow along with my wiper arms to refreshing them before install with new wiper blades.

    Ok well over the weekend I got some work done and a few steps closer to driving this thing.

    I got my flop shop trail mirrors on and love the look. Definitely different with round mirrors and not square like stock.

    Sealed up the rear fender wells. Used a silicone base sealant then sprayed flex seal over it. Need to do another coat of flex seal but in will hold up. If I can seal up a cracked tank on a toilet with it. so It should hold up.

    A mid week junkyard trip. I was lucky enough to find some xj wagoneer tail lights that I couldn't pass on. The chrome/grey trim around the headlights were faded some. So when I painted my mirrors and wiper arms I taped the off as well and everything got a satin black treatment.
