Meh nothing much, just had to put all the useless stuff back in the center console. Looks good when you open it, but after rummaging there's nothing worth taking. All the good stuff is locked in the big ol metal footlocker in the back

Blew apart my RR wheel cylinder. replaced both wheel cylinders, drums, shoes, hardware. then my RF caliper locked up, so replaced it, then ceramic pads and rotors. THEN my brake line blew apart on the way to work today. So, I guess Ill be replacing all my steel lines too. otherwise, theyll keep blowing one at a time. Oh, I wheeled a little between everything breaking, only have a few pics though. First time since I put the new wheels and tires on in february. Ill post a pic or two in a few minutes....

If there is a felpro rubber gasket I get it. I can't stand working with RTV and cork. Horrible stuff.

The new one comes with a molded rubber gasket on it. I was thinking of just adding a thin bead of rtv to it

Drove it around today as illegally as I possibly could ha!
Since I stripped everything yesterday and was planning on doing work today, I didn't bother putting certain things back together before bed last night. My daughter had t-ball this morning and my buddy with his JKU was supposed to take us....he never showed. Found out he stayed with a lady last night so I can't be too mad

I ran around town with no license plates at all, no mirrors, no doors, etc. Glad I didn't run into any problems. Was kinda scary. The last thing I can afford is a ticket right now!

Thank god for small miracles I guess! On a side note, the little lady LOVED riding with the doors off.... Picked out of my ear as they say ...

Oh and bought a new radiator to replace my broken one. The list of things to get done today just keeps getting longer....
Cheers

100% pure Silicone works better than anything. Especially with a rubber gasket.

love my jeep

Well the valve cover from Q tec is about an inch too narrow so I was forced to clean up the old one. I thought all these 4bangers were the same
