    Semi and flat paints take practice hard to spray them without gloss. Go faster and try a little dryer coat if that makes sense.

    Hi Grant, gee, I forgot the name of the paint other than being a Shopline brand. But no, it's not the same as the mustang, but this paint job will be, Flat orange, pretty much everything will be Flat.
    I should be starting a blog on it fairly soon, I've been lazy not having posted:( But since you reminded me, I'd better get started on it soon or else it will be done! lol
    Thank you Grant!!!!

    How would these Miata seats look in the jeep? I had an extra set that I renovated a while back, but never could sell them, so I was thinking they might look kind of neat, plus they have speakers in the head rests;)

    they look a little long in the butt area best to measure to see if there is enough length without a wheelhouse notch.

    Thanks guys;) and yes Txtoller, it did wind up looking Pumpkin! lol I hope decals will lessen that effect. When we were looking at colors, originally it was to be a glossy color, but then Robo liked the flat look. So it's Flat~ ;) I had mentioned the Miata seats to my brother, but he wasn't excited about them. I've got a lot of time in those seats! However, I could re-upholster the seats that came in it and be happy.

    Perhaps a decal based on txtoller description~"The Great Pumpkin" in a font suitable, might be fun;)

    We were following the idea of the look of this googled image, kind of got the shade off, but should come close enough;)

    We're still playing with these wheels, they're too glossy for one and that will soon be taken care of;)

    I'm thinking it's becoming an art~ so pretty!

    We took off the entire exhaust and cleaned it, I welded the joints and Robo sprayed it with Eastwoods Exhaust coating, the entire system for a nice clean look;)
    We are really having fun right now!

    HI!!

    A new clutch cable~ I had Robo push on the new clutch system, and the first push the ball end came off. Luckily I was able to retrieve the part with a magnet!

    Herm the overdrive guy came through getting the parts for my PTO, got it back together and obviously installed it.

    Here the PTO shaft, I've installed new u-joints and it's ready for whenever we're ready for it;)

    I've got two more days before the weekend, then grandkids and kids will be here and no more fun in the shop until Monday:( But have to kick ass over the next couple days;)

    At the end of the day, I played around with the miata seats~ I think they may work, just need to play with them some more.

    The project is looking great. Like those Miata seats. Built in speakers would be cool with a bluetooth amp connected to them. No visible radio. Although, with that being said, I do like the look of the stock low backs.
