I'm think of using some stainless to mak a set of door sills for the heep. What do yall think?

If I have any stainless left I'm goin to try to make a emblem for the hatch that says XJ.

Sounds good. Checker plate (Or diamond plate depending on which term you know it as) would also look good...

you can always grind some nice design on the SS and throw some clear coat to prevent rusting, I know stainless steal does not rust but you never know, I did an art project one with a 4x4 plate of SS and I grind some designs and it look real cool, but I did not protect the finish and it got a lil dark, also if it ever get dark or not as shinny as it used to be, you can buy some SS cleaner for refrigerators or stoves.. I have some at my house and it works wonders

I start with a homemade stencile


then marked the metal


then crudely cut it out with a cutting wheel on a grinder


The put them in a vice and finished them with a grinder


They still need to be mounted but there they are.
What yall think

probably stainless screws and counter sink them just right to whrer it is a flush mounted screw or JB Weld.
