put my 2 drings on front bumper last night, vaccuumed out the interior. there was sand all stuck in the carpeted area of the back seat so that took a while. noticed a rust hole underneath my back seat, a rust hole where the passenger puts their feet.

also turned the air conditioner on because i realized i had bees nests in behind my mirrors and my gf didnt want them flying in..so used the AC and after shooting dirt/dust out of all the vents because its lack of used it then decided to pee some coolant onto the passenger floor. no big deal. just wont use AC lol.. so after she put my 5 dollar bill into what she thought was the change machine..it was the actual car wash machine. i then had 12 minutes to wash my jeep. so washed it and sprayed all the bee's nests out of the mirrors...

also put some stickers on her

Got two bolts in the oil pan. Still have to put one more in but ithe oil pan isn't a perfect fit so have to possibly get a smaller bolt. And pretty sure my gas tank is rusted and leaking :/

Yours looks a lot like my DD minus 2 doors. But then again I guess there's a lot different. Looks good.


Was your garage on fire when you took the picture of the parts in the floor?
