They are powder coated a graphite color, then the lip of the wheel was machined and the entire wheel was clear coated.

Specs on that new lift? That's a great looking Niner BTW.


Oh, and I broke something. That little bracket that holds the throttle cable, cruise control cable, and TV cable to the throttle body. Yeah... for some reason I decided to take off the bracket, give up half way through, and put it back on. While putting it back on, I snapped the bolt by the TV cable. Those are tough little bolts. I attempted to drill it out only to lose 3 drill bits. My screw extractor set won't do it either. Any ideas?

Just go to the yard and grab another TB. Then after you get the screw out of that one, send it to the machine shop to have it bored out.

I have an extra 2 bbrl holly TB laying around from a late model dodge 1500 that I took off of a truck that someone tossed off a cliff if you want to pay for shipping. I am keeping the sensors though!

weld a nut to the top and wrench it out

grind a slot in it and use a big screw driver

get better drill bits, lol

I thought that was going to be the answer. How much you think shipping would be from Vegas? Flat rate box?

Three good answers. However, welding is not one of my skills, grinding it would damage the throttle body, and my drill bits are decent. I've drilled through bolts before with no issue. Breaking bolts is commonplace when I work on stuff...

Damn... I can't even begin to tell you how much of both I have on the ZJ. Both bumper covers are held on on the bottom by zip ties. I have a ton of Gorilla duct tape inside my cowl and up in my dash from when I tried to seal a small leak I had. I also have duct tape over my silicone job from when I drilled and cleaned out my AC drain plug. You know you're a redneck when...

Almost positive that's Slaughterhouse Gulch. It's been almost 5 years since I've been out there though.

*Edit: Correction....over 6 years

Today, I signed and handed over the title to my ZJ. Guy has had it for a month and he is already tearing into it. I left it in GREAT condition, and the dude says he is dropping a 5.9L into it.

I just took a deep sigh and walked away. Good thing is he wants my 242 and maybe ill talk him on to the HP30 I got laying around. $$$...
