After about two days of wrestling with this damn carpet, I was able to get it to look close to factory as possible. Yes, it was quite the pain to install, but the end result of fresh carpet made it worth while. If you have the patience and want new carpet, go for it. If not, I personally would wait around for original Sahara green carpet to pop up at a jeep junkyard.
I took the Sahara rear bench to work to get it power washed and its nice and clean! I just wish it wasn't so faded and it kept its dark "wet look". It's a challenge to find 25 year old Sahara seats that aren't faded. Rear bench is now installed!
Special delivery from my good friend and fellow expert Jurassic builder and pioneer, Brandon C. I bought some Sahara front seats from him and he was kind enough to ship the giant box to me. $200 later (ouch) in shipping fees and the seats arrived safely and well packaged in Houston!
Also, I painted the spare rim so I can finally get all 5 brand new BFG all-terrain tires installed. I just scuffed the clear coat, primer filler, sanded, and painted with ford performance red. Good as new!
Still waiting on the fabrication shop to finish up the light bar.. That is taking much longer than i'd long for it to be but I will try to give them the benefit of the doubt to finish VERY SOON.
