I did my first brake drum/shoes replacement. All those damn springs and clips are a b!tch to put back together. My hands are really hurting today from gripping the pliers but I'm happy knowing my '91 YJ will be on the road for that much longer.

Here's the pics as I promised:

My terribly rusted floor pan!!!!11!!:





Cleaned up a bit of the wiring for my CB radio (shortened the wires, that's the two butt connectors) and tucked it up and out of the way, along with repositioning the antenna cable so it was farther out of sight. Also repositioned and loomed the wire for my Auxilliary Lights:



On the passenger side, I re-routed and looomed my RCA, Power, and Remote lines for my stereo. They used to run right underneath the seat in the middle of the floor, but since I tossed the carpet I needed it to be out of the way and out of sight as much as possible:





I did leave part of the carpet under the rear seat in going into the cargo () area just to help keep the wires out of sight.

Like I said, nothing major, just a couple of little things I've been putting off.

Changed out front diff fluid with some Royal Purple, installed new Rockcrusher diff cover. Very nice

Took top off, ready for summer

Drilled 6 holes in the bottom of my factory console. Now I can fill it with ice and have a nice cold beverage. Water runs out holes and out the floor!

Installed new black stainless hood hinges.

Bought a York compressor to start gathering parts for OBA.

It was a nice day.

Over the last couple days I replaced cap, rotor, plugs, wires. Added an inline electric fuel pump to help with fuel starvation. This all on the 94'.

Finally got around to putting on my Kilby Gas Tank Skid!

I got it for Christmas, and have been waiting for warm weather, free time, and understanding from the "missus" while I wrench.

I go up early to minimize the time this takes away from the family. I went slow since I did it myself, and that Kilby skid is heavy Fortunately, I barely had a gallon of gas left. I am very satisfied with this new skid plate. I cannot wait to take it out and 'test' it.

I'm off to start my honey-do list now.
