Been a While...
 
I've been overloaded since the end of summer with highschool, college classes, a stupid senior exit project, a K5 build, and the girlfriend so I haven't been doing too much with the Jeep lately but there have been a few changes.

I got bored one day and thought I'd try painting my white grill black. I used some Rustoleum Satin Black spray paint on top of some basic primer. Pics were taken in the Black Mountain area of North Carolina.

And for sh!ts and gigs...

A couple of the college classes I'm taking are MIG welding and TIG welding. I get bored doing the same joints over and over so I end up making things such as lockboxes with whatever scrap metal I can find. The other day I decided to make some stronger CB antenna mounts as the ones I made before bend if an antenna hits a low branch.

TIG welded 3 "coupons" together for each one. They're now painted satin black, have the holes drilled, and I'll be welding them on the Jeep this week. My camera sucks at focusing close up :mad:

If I had a lot of extra money layin around right now I'd probably be buying a set of Jesters but with lots of college expenses around the corner I've made myself cut back on the spending. Might still end up with a set but only if the opportunity falls perfectly into my lap haha

Generally i'm not a fan of the flat black but on your rig it does look good! Really gives it a mean look.
