Re: Bad News

@BSmith0612: Thanks and that sounds very interesting/appealing. On a side note, I'm diggin' that custom user title "Jeep Owner + JeepGarage.org = Empty Wallet" as well as your signature.

Re: Bad News

^ ALL of the previous is good sound advice. You just need to sit down and figure out your goals. I am from the Stacey David school of automotive endeavors. If you're going to tear it apart, might as well go for broke. Make it look and perform as best as possible, but that's me.

Some things to consider;

Do you have access to another vehicle for work and errands, or is the Jeep you're only ride? Whatever you do, it could be down for a while.

Do you have the disposable cash for a project like this? I think it'd be safe to allocate a minimum of $1K for this, and could be much more.

Do a LOT of research. Very often buying new and pretty is only a few dollars more than rebuilding old and worn. In this economy, there are incredible deals to be had.

I would also say upgrade whenever possible.

Just sayin...

Re: Bad News

Forgot this;

A few cans of engine enamel go a LONG way to making things look amazing under the hood. Straight six engines look great with polished accessories and painted valve covers.

Re: Bad News

I agree with and did what S.O.T.I. mentioned, I made a list with prices, etc. Pretty much, a spreadsheet lol. But my time is limited, so I take it bit by bit and check off an item whenever I actually get something accomplished lol.
