I was gonna go camping with friends in the jeep this weekend...and now my brake booster has decided to totally go south. I can HEAR the vacuum leak from inside the truck. Sigh.

Aite, started the process of replacing my booster. I figured I'd need to make sure it was just the booster failing. Ive heard stories of the master cylinder leaking brake fluid into the booster and causing the diaphragms to leak.

Everything looked fine at the back of the MC.

There is some tight fitting linkage in here, which is gonna be a beeotch to get back together...thank goodness my girl has small hands to help me out.

Pulled the booster:



MC doesnt look bad. Had a lil seepage around the cap at the back, but that's it. wasnt leaking or anything I dont think.


Booster has definitely seen better days:



I was going to convert it to a later style MC with a reservoir, but the issue is that the brake lines attach on the driver side of the new style, and the passenger side of my old MC. I'd have to bend new lines down to the main valve from the MC, and I'm not really up for that.

Crappy thing is that a booster for a 1973 costs 125 bucks. Ugh.

Okay, so a little more cosmetic "pretty" work done.

I have no money right now, so I havent been able to replace the booster, but I did find something free to do this weekend.

I wanted to touch up my wrap-around corner signals. The chrome is all nice, but the black painted accents are long gone. Chipped up, or faded to the point of non-existance. I went around and re-did all the black on the grill this past summer when I first got the truck, but never did the corners.





As you can see, there aint too much black left.

So, i grabbed my supplies and threw on a movie.


first one took about 80 minutes to scuff up and completely mask.


then gave it a lil spritz with Duplicolor Trim Paint


And proceeded to do the same to number two, which only took about an hour. I wasnt 100% satisfied with the masking job, so i did some small touch ups by hand with a paint brush.

I had an awesome picture of a re-painted one sitting next to one that was original, but my phone likes to delete pictures I just took, or maybe just not save them.

Anyway, the finished product on the truck...dont mind the huge dent in the grill, the crooked hood, or the rusty spots behind the bumper...just focus on the chrome!




So, nothing big, but at least i got to work on the truck while It's sitting there with no brakes.

Not related to the waggy, but...

Had a visitor go under the knife in my operating room...my neighbors must love me.




Threw a 2" lift on my buddy's TJ.

He's at 2 or 2.5" lift, on 32s....I'm at 4" lift on 33's...and he's still taller. FSJ's arent as big as everyone thinks!

I bet your buddy doesn't need a step ladder to reach everything in his engine bay, though. That's a huge difference between my TJ and SJ. I actually feel short messing with the SJ!

LOL no SJ's are not that big, My J4800 gladiator isn't as big as a regular chevy ford or dodge pickup, its just a bit smaller. The main thing though it SJ's are LOWRIDERS stock. Especially the cherokees and waggys.

Anyway looks good with the chrome cleaned up and repainted.

Oh and a friend of mine has a grand waggy for sale locally for $1200 (could probably talk him down lower with cash). Damn, I would like to buy it but Im currently broke. Its a mid 80's in real good shape and it has the full exterior scorpion lined. All it needs is a transfer case (or more likely the internal clutches replaced) Im pretty sure its full time 4wd with no 2wd. He says it just stopped going but works when he puts it in lock or low lock.
