Jeep Went to Annual Local car show,
Soooo many goodies, i love Those Rods, rat Rods, 50's, Corvette's, Mustang's,,,,
Twice as many Jeep's over last year, mainly Wrangler's, a few ZJ and Willy's,
My Jeep was the only and best looking WJ at show IMO.

lol, Nice day

Edit: not a great job, found all inside of my new wheels and black painted calipers, and springs full of undercoating, Mercasol, really shhhh to Get away
Went back to shop 0700, heads rolling, 3 hours later, more undercoating, cleaning brakes and springs, thats ok, but,,,,
Now there Are some white stains inside and at the black painted areas which looks kinda flat not gloss anymore, at the NEW wheels,
They tried to clean off with high pressure, white spirit, polish, and clean with soap, but still not look perfect
Went back again in Rampage mode, foreign workers couldnt stand the complains, 2 guys got angry and wanted to fight me....???!
Situation got worse and boss in shop had to hold his men back.
I went out of shop and into the office, boss came and told me how sorry he was for all this, i demanded a full refund for the job, which i got,

Then i asked what he would do to my ruined wheels, if he couldnt Get them Nice again he would have to pay up for them!!!?
He had no choice other than to agree, soooo
New wheels ordered.

What a Jeep day, phu,

AND name of company Are KAMPEN ANTIRUST, Oslo Norway, STAY AWAY!!!

Now I don't regret spending four hours on my back with a wire brush getting every bit of crud out from under there. And then another hour undercoating it. No over spray for me. No new wheels for me, either, but whatever...

I used some rubberized stuff that promised to cut down on road noise on top of the undercoating.

Your Jeep looks like pure secks with those wheels/tires btw.

Thanks man i love the wheels myself
Deff gave my Jeep the stance and attitude needed

I am the kind of guy that like to do everything APAP (as perfect as possible), thats shhhh when you choose to put away work to others, i always check/Control others work, and 8/10 times i am glad i did, cause something is often done wrong, or not perfect, or something forgotten,,,,

I demand better than that, i expect perfection from myself and others, so when i pay profesionals to do some work, i expect it to be done at its best way, if i need to learn them how to do, i could just done it myself.

Seems like the world is full of retarded ppl, they Are like everywhere, braindead Zombies not Thinking at all

after all this F ups, i would deff would be better off doing it myself.

Further resurch about Mercasol rust protection shows its s Swedish product, its a 2 step process with a thinner penetrating fluid going in all cavities and undercarriage, then they Apply a thicker fluid for Maximum protection against salt, stonechips etc, going on all the undercarriage and wheel wells.
Used on vehicles, industry, and on offshore instalation, tuff stuff when its done right.

Today i got tired of the bad weather, luckily my friend was fixing his boat outside so i could wrench inside his workshop.

Got the old front diff cover pulled,
drained off smelly fluid, no water in it, looked ok,
Inspected gears, ok,
Check magnet, nothing much, no worries,
Mounted my new BTF diff cover with Black RTV.
Waited 2 hours,,,, drinking coofee and gave my both front seats a Good Meguiars 2 step threatment, cleaner and sealer.
RTV seemed quite dry by now, refilled with Redline 75W-140, got about 1.7-1.8qts in it with the new BTF cover,
and i noticed the filler Hole sits about 1/2" higher at the BTF than the stock.

Drove 2 km home, recheck, no leak
