Just went out and ground/sanded the bit of rust from underneath my back carpet, then hit it with rattlecan rust treatment. Go out later for another coat or two, then the primer and paint.
Found the leak underneath the rear external "vents", I took them off and found a little tiny rubber plug had come loose from a hole under there.
Gonna paint the vents while I've got them off, as well as reseal the little louvered vent that is in there.
I installed my 4.0Litre badge I saved from my 89XJ in the proper location on the hatch. I also fixed my dead drivers door speaker and put new clips on both front door panels. They had them at our little TruValue store. They have everything imaginable.
Got 0% of my planned projects done today, thanks to the torrential downpours we got last night and so far today....
I did manage to get to the JY and in between downpours I snagged a 136A alternator(from a Caravan, not 100% sure if I can make it work though....), a Dakota air hat, and a Durango console to modify to work in my wife's YJ.
No rain when I got back home so I did the air hat swap. Took about 15 min total, including cutting the hood sub-structure to clear the air hat.
It does rub on the underneath of the hood just a tad, so I'm thinking I might just use some washers between the hood and the hood hinges to give it enough clearance so it won't chafe through.
It's raining again, so that won't be today....
Haven't test driven it yet, but I gotta go to the store soon. Will I notice a difference?
Made a little progress on tearing down my new-to-me 231. Got to the chain and couldn't figure out how to get it off. What's the easiest way to get this chain off?? The chain was so loose on my old 249 I was able to just pull it right off, this one's not so easy...
Oh, and I did go ahead and modify my shifter with the 231 shifter from the xj, now once the swap is done I'll have the correct marker, uh, thing.
