Since I have the engine out and in about 50 pieces, I thought I would work on the interior.

Took out the seats and carpet and found a decent floor. Nothing except a little surface rust:






Then I figured that the A/C hasn't worked in nearly 20 years, I might as well get rid of all that crap under the dash. Now I have leg room
Here's the offending part:


And the resulting spaghetti under the dash:


I got rid of all the A/C wires, and tied up the rest (radio, speakers, etc).
Next step is to Herculine the entire tub and plug some of the holes where the A/C lines ran.

Fixed the sagging skid plate after the jackhole who fixed my AX5 did a half-assed job putting it back on.

Of the three bolts on my drivers side, he torqued out 1 fine, cut one off, and stripped the nutsert out of the other.

Jacked up the skid plate with a 1 1/2 ton scissor jack, drilled out 1/2" holes for the cut-off bolt and the stripped one, and extended the holes all the way through to the other side of the frame. Sprayed some rust inhibitor inside, and put 6 inch galvinized grade 8 hex bolts through to the top of the frame. Washers on both sides, and two nuts on the top of the frame, and no more sag.

Now to fix all the other rattles.

I attempted to reconnect the linkage to my interior passenger door handle so I can open the door from the inside, but it got dark. Working nights and waking up at 5pm sucks. Maybe tomorrow I'll take the door off so I can work on it inside.

Gave the Jeep a well deserved bath, washed all the red Moab dirt and dust off the exterior. Spent extra time cleaning the engine and underneath. Wiped the dash all down, now I just need to vacuum the carpet. Then everything will be nice and clean and ready for the next wheeling trip.

Having steering fluid come bursting out of the cap and spraying your engine makes a sticky red mess everywhere when you mix the fluid with dust. We were just happy it was from an over full reservoir and not a leak.

Took the hard top off, put the soft top on. Pulled the winter tires off, put mud tires on. Cleaned up the newly acquired 8.8 getting ready to install after some more cleaning, paint, and brakes.

This was yesterday, but I broke my horn while fixing my loose steering wheel, washed it and made an oil catch can out of a coffee can. Today I changed the oil and cleaned all the leaked oil from the engine bay (coming from the air box, hence the catch can).
