Nope. Not working. Borrowing a friends car to go get a new starter and tools hopefully.

I think his bolts are seized. Impact wrench won't budge them and we don't have an air ratchet

OK. Got the starter and my tool box. I should be good to go to switch it when I get out of work.

I'll post an update - wish me luck!

Ok - so starter came out easy peasy!

The bearings in where it catches the flywheel did seem a bit resistant.

All in all it was a 10 minute job. No problem whatsoever (for the first time ever on this Jeep)

Started RIGHT up... like.... right the f*** up. After I did the fuel pump it always had a bit of a lag. Turns out i think the starter was wearing out the whole time.

I did to get it home from sears the first time

So - had a mildly productive weekend. Spent 5 hours at the DMV - switched my residency, got my license and Alice has new tags. I just ran out of time to get my class M endorsement. However, I did also buy my first car off my mom to fix up and use for school. I start Tuesday - almost 400 miles a week for 2 years.

Here she is, looking good.

You know what would make that look hot? A chrome grille! Just kidding, it looks great.

Ohh... that is a good idea. Ill have to special order some chrome plastidip!

Thanks man - I am really loving it. I cant believe the difference $3 made in using half a can of Krylon Fusion leftover from the fenders to paint the entire console.

I will get some good pictures as soon as the sun comes out. Promise! Happy Monday everyone!

Waiting on these pictures still!

I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

Won an old cabinet from work in a random drawing. A few people asked how I would get it home. I chuckled.

I present - my new garage chemical storage delivery system!

Sweet! Judging from the shape, it has plenty of experience.

Meh- its a little dinged up on the bottom (put it in upsidedown - almost rolled it up and over on the jeep to get it standing up without lifting the whole weight) but the Jeep has to be pretty - not the garage.

Looks like tomorrow I am having a Jeep party at my house- then we will all be departing from Winsted in a convoy to Ellington for the Great American Jeep rally. I am excited, it should be a lot of fun.

Like my new paint color guys? I decided clay was better than black for my grill



Getting some flex next to Andy on some jeep only parking
