Once I was sure it was fully sealed I put it back in.
I started it up and my VIC only tells me the time and date. NO beeps and coolant low message!!!!!

Just wait give it a month lol
Fixed my sensor too like that and 2 or so months later its back!

Plasti-dipped the hood and rear bumper... Testing it in black, eventually the whole jeep will be done in desert tan!

The last picture is from a while back but I also have the slats cut out with a custom mesh background. Love the look

Quiet day. Just washed her and got started on repairing the vinyl arm rest on the driver and passenger side. I don't care about the aesthetics - it's more because I'm tired of slicing up my elbow when I bump the area. That damn vinyl edging is sharp!

Plastidipping something that big is silly....I plastidipped my snorkel and cab antenna and it lasted 1-2 wheeling trips before looking like crap....

on the rear of it, near center.

once you take the pan off you'll see the only area of the trans where nothing is there ie valve body, solenoid, band etc.
