wJP29 had her first day in the sun today since the conversion began! She runs and feels great, and gets a ton of smiles. It's always a lot of fun driving around topless feeling the breeze flowing through the Jeep.
Today I took JP29 to replace the rims with the screen accurate rims. I was a little nervous the tire shop would scuff the freshly painted wheels but they did a great job being careful. PHEW!
New rims are on, the white lettering was flipped so its on the outside of the tire, and now there's a night and day difference!
I also dropped off the light bar to me other Jeep at the fabrication shop to have the bar replicated. I emphasize on how important it was to replicate it exactly as the one I brought in because every detail matters to me and my OCD!
I see the finish line!
It's Monday, and I took the day off from work to continue working on JP29. Today, we put the "cherry on top" and applied the door decals, the jeep logos, and the 4.0 decal as well.
We kept moving along today and applied all of the stripes, and stencils as well as painted the rims. The hood stamp is a stencil as well as the numbers on the sides so they are permanent. We also painted and restored all of the black parts like the front and rear bumper, wipers, door handles, soft top framing and rails, basically any part that was originally black got a fresh coat of black paint. If you're going to repaint a vehicle, its a must to repaint everything else so its uniform like a brand new car! We also painted the door panels sahara green and applied my world famous custom made door pouches! Available to purchase in my store.
The new project is moving right along! I decided to build my third Jurassic Park Jeep, and this time I chose number 29 because it was used in both Jurassic Park, AND Jurassic World! JP29 is the hero car in Jurassic World that the kids found in the old visitors center and used it to get them to safety!
