Had to stop the resto for a while because my brother totaled the van i was supposed to be driving. Yesterday and today i spent putting everything back together. I'll get pics up when i find the camera

Also, there was a little hose just hanging there i found, i traced it to the washer fluid bottle. Is it susposed to be like that?
And another one but this hose is connected to... nothing! Its right next to the radiator and one end has a cap on it while the other was hanging down by my front diff

that one hanging that has a cap on one end. thats probably your vent line for your front axle. look around the diff for a fitting to pop it onto.

and the one for the washer fluid bottle, does your washer fluid work? if not...thats probably why

it works, but it isnt very powerful (only reaches the bottom on the window) I thought it was just the pump going on me.

Since you have a hardtop, there is a second pump on the bottom of the washer bottle for the rear glass - likely the "dangling" line.

That's probably why it's not hooked up to anything.

That third pic looks like the hose is coming off the washer fluid. There are two pumps in it, one for the windshield and one for the rear window. Since you don't have a rear window wiper, that hose doesn't go anywhere.

As for the other tube, I can't answer that. Maybe someone else knows?
