Over a year ago, I rolled our Project Teal Brute Jeep at Hollister Hills. The occurrence all but totaled the vehicle. As such, I've been slowly piecing the rig back together with new replacement parts. The aftermath cleanup has taken much longer than I would have liked. The process has encountered several setbacks. However, progress is being made none the less. So, I wanted to post some photos for those readers who might be wondering why the rig has not been getting much ink lately. Take a look.
The rollover was one complete barrel roll, counter clockwise, back onto it's wheels. The damage sustained left the vehicle in dyer need of frame work, body work, and lots of new parts and pieces.
The force of impact crushed the grill, hood, hardtop & windshield frame, factory hard doors, and the top corners of the pickup box.
The vehicle's frame was bent badly towards the passenger side. So we had it fixed by a collision expert in Ukiah, CA.
Dustin Chernoh of DC Customs has worked to repair the dents and dings in the body of the vehicle, but due to other more pressing projects, the progress has been slow.
Quadratech supplied a whole assortment of replacement parts at a good price so that we could get the rig back up and running again.
This new TJ grill was painted last week by Dustin Chernoh. The progress enabled a whole week of attention to patching up the damaged areas of the front clip.
I took advantage of the rebuild process to showcase some new products such as this stainless steel front bumper from Metalcloak.
After a weel of labor, this is how she looked.
Check back in a few weeks for more update photos.
