I hung my tank and split the fuel fill hose trying to slip it back on so I had to stop there and wait for after work tomorrow to run to the parts store.
He used duplicolor vinyl and fabric charcoal gray.

almost forgot I got around to replacing the light in the heater control finally no more instant cold outside air because the wife cant see what she shouldnt be touching in the first place.

Last night I fixed a pinched vent line on top of the fuel tank and replaced the o-ring on the clutch master cylinder line. Took it for a test drive and all was right with the world. Got up this morning and tried to crank her up and the ignition switch wouldn't work. So, tonight I wired up a toggle switch and push button start.

How do you flush the tranny, and what do you use to flush it?

Disconnect the out line from the tranny at the rad, turn the jeep on, put in neutral til fluid starts sputtering out, shut off, reconnect line, refill, repeat until fluid coming out looks like the fluid going in, drop the pan, replace filter gasket etc., replace pan, fill, add some lucas stop slip, and pray to the jeep gods that it works.

came up with a design/plan for my rear under-seat storage.



Divided rear compartments will have drawers only accessible with tailgate open - seat mounted on top. Front compartment is top-hinged for access from the front.

With the installation of the new windshield seal and the "Jeep" decals on the side, the exterior is finished. I'll do the underside and detail the engine when it gets warmer.
