Looks good man, nice sharp clean lines. Well done.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I appreciate it. The only thing I'm concerned about is the paint peeling. But I decreased the area, taped it up, scuffed it down, and used a very high temp header paint so it SHOULDN'T peel but time will tell.

Should be fine but you could throw a coat or two of a high temp clear over the top to seal it and promote adhesion. Probably overkill but that never hurts...

In all honesty you probably don't 'need' high temp, just would be nice. The under good temps should never be above 300 at most, which most reg paints should handle.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

replaced floor mats with Mopar OWM 'luxury' mats - wearing office shoes with sharp heels has dug too much into the driver side, to ashamed to show pics and had to dump it ! the new ones with the Jeep logos look good , pics to follow.

-- and Holland will win the world cup

What did you do to your WK today?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

In light of all the "oil change" posts, I felt obligated. I've had Truck Norris for 8 months, put on 4k miles, but this is my 3rd oil change.
Here's the drain plug (missing), with oil draining...
