Last night we pulled the rear drive shaft, and beat the crap out of the old U-joints to get them out. Buddy held the ballpeen peen side down and me smacking it with a 4 pound sledge (a lot). They just laughed at the C-clamp and vise method. Slapped'em all together and the nasty vibration is gone. I hope to throw the new soft top on today.

Installed new (to me, it belonged to a fine fellow named Craig, got it from his list) CB. Straightened steering wheel (again): pulled the steering wheel to kinda center the horn button and then pipe-wrenched the drag link. Was about to take it for a test drive and I noticed the pleasant smell of gas. Second fuel leak since I replaced my fuel filter (third in about a week since the output hose started to leak). All new clamps now, no more leaks. Test drive to buy dog treats and a mother's day card in a few minutes, hopefully.
I think that's 50 posts for me now. I can start posting pics of my rusty pile!
