Made a little progress this weekend.

- Removed all the decals which was a little more pain staking than I assumed it would be. But using a plastic scraper and some Goo Gone, I was able to get er done. I must have gotten ripped off though, dude sold me a JOOP! :lol:

Im not really sure why this JOOP photo is uploading upside down, but i'll include it anyways.

- My lightbar from Jamieson's Fabrication arrived. I must say, their customer service, quality of work, and speed of shipment was above my expectations!

- I placed my order for the Sahara Map Pouches through Vic. Really excited for those to come in! Just need to find some half doors to attach them too.

- Sold my full doors and placed my soft top and hardware up for sale. Funny story about putting my hard doors up for sale on FB Marketplace. Some guy was telling me how foolish it was that I would take my vin matching doors and sell them and ruin a perfectly good Jeep to make ANOTHER Jurassic Park Jeep. Didn't really want to get into it with the guy, but needless to say, I think a Jurassic Park Jeep will bring more smiles to peoples faces than a stock Jeep.

My next project will be to strip the Jeep down. Take out the interior and carpet, take off fenders, etc. Basically get it ready to prep for paint. I just want to get ahold of some half doors so i'm doing it all at once. Half doors are proving to be more difficult to find that I thought they would be. Or at least finding a good set of them.

opinions are like ass holes but he has a point. Your jeep will be worth less money converted. Actually, with patience you might be able to buy one for less the cost of converting one.

This is the first i have heard of Jamieson's Fabrication. Its good that another company has started building these. You should post info in that section. I was just reading about how obsessionoffroad had failed at this.

I don’t think I’d put all this time and effort into making the Jeep if the thought of selling it was on my mind. At least for the time being.

As for the light bar , I got Jamiesons Fab’s contact directly from the JPMP Reference Page.

Got my Half Doors and OEM Sahara Panels!

I also got an extra set of regular panels and since I already ordered map pouches from Victor, I’m gonna make a spare set of Sahara Panels. May sell one of the set of panels in the near future so keep an eye out!

Got the doors mounted on the Jeep already, just need to do a little fine tuning on getting them to fit just right. I also swapped out the mirrors that were on the half doors with the OEM mirrors that I kept from selling my full doors. The mirrors I took off didn't have the "OBJECTS IN MIRROR ARE CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR", but the ones I put on did, and also had the Jeep logo on the mirror. With that, I've got an extra set of mirrors I'll be looking to sell as well.

Yesterday I did a test fit of the lightbar I received from Jamieson Fabrication. Their contact information can be found on the Jurassic Park Motor Pool Reference Page, and I highly recommend them as their price is fair, delivery is quick, and customer service is great. Not to mention the product is quality and screen accurate!

I love the way the lightbar changes the look of the Jeep.

Next step really is paint, so over the next few weeks or so, i'll slowly start removing stuff so that its ready for prep work.
