Picked up some half doors yesterday. Some touching up needs to be done in some spots but nothing major or to worry about for 20+ year old doors.
Biggest thing no RUST. Small miracle around here. $700 with the windows and key, plus they match (Sorry mismatched door club)
Next on the list full doors and fenders.

Looks like you already have full doors!
You should probably lower the oil pan so the crankshaft seal can self center over the harmonic balancer when the timing cover bolts are tightened.otherwise it might be forced upwards and have a limited sealing life
I was made aware of this by feel when I first tried to wiggle in the TC cover (maybe I got lucky) I stopped and was able to feel about 1/8” of ‘squish’. So I did un tighten all the bolts to create ample space.
I got the new calipers, new rotors, and new BMB pads installed today. I also tried to flush the brake system, but I don't think I did it correctly. I may give it another shot tomorrow.
I tested out the brakes. They work, but they are weak. There is resistance in the brake pedal so I don't believe there is air in the lines. I do need to break in the BMB pads. I don't know when I'll get around to doing that though. That's probably the reason for the weak brake system right now.
Put on my new plates. This time with fancy ass white tape instead of black. Zip ties for the win.
All you guys cleaning out your radiators....hah. If I need more cooling, I'll pop off the plate to increase air flow.

Heater worked great at 25 F below zero last winter.
I think that's a little overkill for finding the parking spot curbs in a grocery store parking lot.
What's the ballpark going rate for something like that?
I just picked up a nice set of red half doors for $500 this weekend in Chicagoland area. They were listed for $600 at a local Jeep rehab place
No rust, but the beige interior needs to be SEM matched to slate grey. I ordered all mew pins and bushings for them
It took me a few months of watching and waiting.
