Damn, 2 bedlined interiors in a row? I'm still rockin the 3-tone (grey, sunbleached & stained) OG carpet in mine! It'd be groovy to see pics of the inside once one or both of your ZJs get the bedlining treatment!

Drove Blackbird to work. No driveway die out that plagued it for 3 days straight last week.
Popped the hood & got under it once again (that's 4 driving days in a row now) to witness my claimed leaking water pump that the shop said was pouring out the weep hole last week when they kept it overnight to diagnose the die-while-driving issue (which they didn't...I'm pretty sure it's a ground out PCM from the heatshield set screws or maaaaybe a CPS slowly going faulty, since it's not electrical nor fuel based) but for now, every single time I've looked after 15mi. driving or more, it's bone dry, no leaks at all! No reduction in coolant in my overflow tank either after 45mi. driven, mostly stop & go traffic.

Was planning on swappin the H2O pump Saturday but not so sure I'm touching it if I can't visibly see a leak...

If it's not broken don't fix it. Especially on these zjs

Did a nice performance tune-up today. Killed 2 birds with one stone, knocked out a CEL and gained a little power

Yesterday I cleaned up the front sway bar and plastic plate that covers it, installed new poly isolator bushings. Discovered that the links I got to replace my worn-out/broken stock ones were for the older style sway bar and one of my factory trans cooler lines is leaking a little at the quick connect fitting.

Pulled the bad starter and out to save the core charge and of nowhere came a flash storm. FML. But lifetime warranty on a starter that sees some gross life.

Ceaned the IAC, and discovered it is worn oddly. Did the voltage test on the TPS and it passed. And I replaced its valve cover gaskets. Took a good while because I am OCD about leaving gunk on parts I am reinstalling.

And topped her off. I'm getting right at 11mpg. But a lot of that is idling while working on AC, diagnosing, and just running it though it's paces.

last night tore into the rear axle and replaced the limited slip clutch packs as they were TOAST! also swapped in some axle shafts from a late 90s XJ as the ends of mine were all sorts of worn/mushroomed. also replaced the pinion seal as it was leaking but it looks like ill be doing that again as the new one is leaking worse than the old one, wtf?!

In the shop getting a tail pipe welded in.

Hate when someone else works on my ZJ.
