Black '94 XJ, 2dr, 5spd(AX-5), I4(BOO!!), D30hp, C8.25, 3.55gears(I think?)...scooped it up for $400, thanks to SgtSkid.

Chop is already in full swing...cut & enclosed...just gotta get it all sealed off real good(exhaust fumes are KILLING me!!), then body filler, sand it down, then stripping the paint and goin 2-tone black & od green!! OOHRAH!!

Sorry, last night when I opened this thread and reloaded it multiple times non of the images would load. my bad.

BUT... Now that I can see the images, I like it a lot man! I reaaallly want a 2 door just so I can do this exact idea. Make a 2door thats a chop top/open air rear cabin. Kinda like a bronco set up.

Keep it up.

& you wouldnt happen to have better/more detailed angles of the rear? Like how you cleaned up the rear end and sealed the cabin?
