I finally replaced the broken and wrong style header panel that was on my ZJ with a new one, changed the grill to black, added clear signal lights and corners, and painted the front bumper black, which was green on a tan Jeep. Then went and got some more pics for the current Jeep Bingo Challenge.
Next Weekend I plan on doing the back bumper and the rest of the molding black.

For a couple of weeks I tried to nurse my rear windshield wiper back to health. Disassembled it and cleaned and lubed the shaft. Re-soldered some burnt posts on the circuit board, patched the circuit board twice. Always just enough repairs to get a little life into it.
Gave up and purchased a working used one on e bay, paid $0.01 for it yes one red cent. Put it in today, it works on full time but not on delay. I dont have the balls to return it, I'll live with it.
today i put my new to me tailgate on. had to buy a new handle, and im goin to get a new wiper motor for it eventually. the new gate i got about a year ago just havent had the time to put it on. it cost me about $50 to pick it myself from a local jy. it was a perfect match and the pinstripes even matched up perfectly.
after the new gate went on i went and picked up a spare set of tail light lenses from my local jy for about $7 per lens (told them it was off a neon so they basically just gave them to me. once i got back from that jy trip, i tinted my tail lights and kept one set just in case i didnt like the look and so that i can pass state inspection easier. i must say the zeej looks 10x better with the new gate and the tinted lenses
Today i replaced both battery terminals,changed plugs and wires,replaced valve cover gasket w/ both pcv elbows and painted the vc red,changed gear oil in the diffs. and painted the cover red to match the jeep,changed oil,replaced upper radiator hose,changed trans fluid and all new brake pads...when your lucky enough to get a day off you learn to use it wisely....Tomorrow i plan to take off the cladding and repaint the bumpers
Adjusted the tuning coil on my remote start module and rerouted the antenna. Gained 100+ feet of range from it! (350ft total range) Now only if the OEM RKE system could be tuned. THAT would be helpful. There's always the under-the-chin trick i guess...
Removed both left door speakers. Complete cone surround separation. Gonna rig up some steel pieces to mount some 5.25 rockford fosgate speakers (from my xj) until I can buy the proper brackets to mount aftermarket speakers.
