Jeep #29: Version 1 – Complete

This week, my vinyl guy came through and handed me the door logos.  The door logos are the same ones #18 is using.  With my stripe being a slightly different color than his (his are paint, mine are plastidip) the red in the logo doesn’t match the stripes perfect.  However, being as this is “temporary” until I save up enough to do a full repaint, I’m not going to worry about it.  But he accidentally printed another hood JP18 instead of my JP29.  Instead of having him redo it, i decided to just make a stencil and plastidip the hood logo same as I did on the side numbers.  I got that done friday night.

Today, I installed the Whip CB antenna.  Since I don’t have my light bar on yet, and may not until I do full paint, I attached it to the windshield with some zip ties for now.  Not elegant, but functional.  There was no actual CB in the movie cars, and I don’t have one, so at this time I am not worried about the antenna grounding.  I’m not sure if I will get a CB or not, so for now (as in the movie) the antenna is just for looks.

I also installed, and wired up a license plate relocation and lights for my rear plate Colorado plate, which my custom JP 29 vanity came on friday. I will detail what I did for that later.  For now here are some images of JP29 in her Version 1.

In these images, you  can see some of the existing paint issues, and why I need to do a full paint job on it.

Jeep #18: New Vinyl Installed

The new 18s look fantastic!

The last stuff was reflective material so it actually changed colors depending on what angle you were looking at it, but these babies are flat gray and pretty!

Rollcage and flares tomorrow, I’ll be enjoying tonight as my last night that I can easily put the windshield down.

Jeep #18: Vinyl Installed

Spent 2 minutes taking pictures… they aren’t great, but you’ll get better ones later.

Everything is excellent, fantastic, wonderful… except the 18s… their color is a little off. I’ll see what it looks like in daylight and then decide if I want them redone. 


Thass it for now!

Jeep #18: Jurassic Park Decals

Got them today… about $200 worth of 3-color vinyl, with paid labor to plot and vector out the numbers. Quite a bit of money, but they are soooooo pretty, and sooooo big!

I also scored 5 tires with the correct wheels.

I have tomorrow off, and HUGE to-do list!

-Shop for rollbar covers
-Get crap tires off of wheels
-Paint wheels
-Buy new tires
-Put new tires on shiny red wheels
-Paint fenders
-Put all old tires and wheels on Craigslist

If I have time and Chad lets me use his lift…
-Take old rear flares off
-Attach new flares
-Take off old tires and replace with shiny red ones

Here’s hoping it’s not a million degrees again!
