UPDATED 7/9/12 NEW PICS 1997 Jeep Wranlger I'm working on.
#1
Heres a few pics of the wrangler that I am currently working on. Right now i'm replacing the floor pans and also fixing the body mounts, torque boxes and any other holes i find in this beast. Then After the metal work I will probably be painting it in a few weeks. I have the passenger side front pan tacked in and I am still fitting the rear passenger pan. Hope to get that all fitted and tacked in tonight after work. I will keep you guys posted on the progress. I need something to work on since i havent had much to do on the mustang, but DRIVE IT!!!! Big Grin (really hope i didnt just jinx myself) Have a good day guys.

My parents had a 2002 PT cruiser that I recently had to replace the entire rockers on both side beacause of rust. And they dont repop the rockers for a pt. I had to hand bend those bad boys. Talk about fun. The salt is horrible up here in the winter. Eats these cars alive. I would love to head out west with a trailer and bring home a nice shell of a car with minimal rust. Very hard to find anything around here, older or newer with out rust somewhere. Heres a couple pics of the PT. They didnt want to put the money into painting the whole thing so I just shot the bottom with bedliner and it turned out really nice.

Nice TJ project, Kevin. What's your plan for power? We've done a couple small block Chevy conversions in YJ's we've owned. Jeeps are a blast. Thanks for sharing.

Im just doing the work on it for a guy. I think he is gonna leave drivetrain alone. Previous owner put a brand new reman motor in it and it runs great. he also had the Tranny rebuilt at sametime with new clutch. He is running 4.11 gears so she hums along pretty good with that six banger.

Got the passenger side floor pans all fabbed up and tacked in last night. Also made some patches for the rocker panels and got them tacked in.

Nice! And Nice Job! I was fortunate that my '80 CJ-7 was pretty much rust-free, but still had some bad spots on the rear corners. I popped some new repro corners on it and rattle-canned (with some spray bombs I had made at a local paint shop), which turned out awesome.

Here's mine:
