Well lets start at the beginning....End of a nice day run, later part of February at the end of the trail...I roll the jeep. Lining up for the serious section, got to far to the right, small rock jerked wheel uphill and teetered me on my left wheels-lookin down a serious canyon, briefly, then over she went. So begins the saga of repair turn repaint turn refurbish. Our jeeps seen a few miles over the last 12 years and was gettin pretty threadbare, but as long as we could wheel most of it got put on the round toit list. Decided to create this page to fill in the waiting for bondo to dry and back ordered parts dead time. Seemed a little more constructive than lookin out the window to see if UPS would stop.... I was gettin ready to pull fender off and replace and decided what the heck-I cant make it any worse so I ll try to bang out some of my frustration. Lo and behold it amazingly came out pretty good, so I started taking pictures.
Work In progress
We've decided to paint the entire Jeep-so the project grows. I cant see drilling the new windshield for a 14 year old soft top, so filling all the snap holes would be in order. I cant BELIEVE the prices of new tops. Hokey Smoke! AND THEY DON'T EVEN USE SNAPS ANYMORE...ua old school :) There goes this years budget-all for a moment.
Last comment- for those of you in soft tops w/ no cage. The windshield frame wrapped itself around my roll bar. If it hadn't been for the cage at minimum the windshield would have been in my face, the jeep on its top. But more than likely the jeep would have continued to roll and off the ridge. Or dead Mark-cost of cage-100/150 bucks.
So were thinking of late ford explorer gray-green what do ya think?
