35 foot pounds is what I retorqued them to. They were a few turns loose after some miles on the brand new gasket. One of them just quit tightening and upon attempting to back it out it broke. I kinda thought 35 was pretty high for those little bolts but the other ones are just fine. Maybe I'll have an explanation after I get the bolt drilled out...

Drove it to the store a few times to get some tools to rip the alternator out of my Nissan. I also finally managed to get the solder joints on the sunroof relays, properly soldered. Now the sunroof opens by jumping the switch with a piece of wire. Now all I need is a new switch, and i'll be good to go. Possibly going to tackle the fixing the headliner, and fixing the memory mirrors in the next few days.

Ordered a desert sand and black touch up kits, to cover up the fender trimming and to paint my door handles black.

You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to that lol. All my previous vehicles have had too many miles or I didn't keep them long enough. Hell, I was late to work one day driving around in my last truck so I could watch it roll over 100k lol

I ordered 4 bilstein 5100's, moog super trail boss, RR recovery kit, Superwinch lp10000, and a heim joint for my RE ftb from Kolak today. Bought some hockey pucks at the local sporting goods store for front bump stops, and made an appt to get my front windows tinted.

Not as bad as it could've been if I'd ordered it through somewhere else. Still under $1k including the tint. I'm trying to get it setup as a DD and part time trail rig. It's getting there.

Mine should hit the big 200k by the end of next month. Also I finally tracked down a replacement D35, everything I need to make the disc brakes on said D35 work with my drum system and a new gas tank. Mine came dented from the P.O. and suddenly developed a pinhole leak the other day. I patched it with some quik steel but I don't trust it. Picking all this up Friday, and then I will literally have every single part I need to fix every last known issue on my ZJ!
