I am fairly happy with the way the color matched. If I had to do it over I would put some clear over it. It came out kind of matte rather than gloss.

Try not to make hard lines with tape. you have to either use a molding or something so the old and new paints arent touching or kinda "blend" or "mist" it in over the factory paint.

If you get what I mean lol

Thank you. It is pretty much the way I want it now. Minus the halfass lift. I wasn't planning more than a 2 inch lift(when I had hopes of buying a stock XJ) but now that i have this i really like how it sits its not too much not too little ya know. So I will be sticking with this lift height and just get everything dialed in and replaced/fixed with better parts.

After that its just working out issues as they arise. The end game plan is to have a reliable rig that can handle the snow around here, maybe do some mild offroading, and be a good road trip vehicle. Me and the misses like to go to the beach and road trip to concerts and such and out Civic coupes arent very good for that lol

thanks man. I found your build thread right after I bought mine. I probably read your entire build thread 3 times. I love it. Quite the inspiration

I never even noticed 2 door XJs before and I had no idea they ever came with window wings or how rare they are.
