The heat will do it man. That's what I dealt with last year......the lake, beers and girls took precedence over the Jeep. Take a break and wait for a cold front.

Heat always wins. I work in a car port when I wrench so I have to have good weather to really feel comfortable. The heat makes me rush and I don't have good results.

Take a break hit the pool and have some beers!

Got to keep it fun, that's what I have been trying to tell Johnny. These projects shouldn't become work.
It's way to easy to become burned out on these things

GOOD IDEA!
Ive found you get alot more done when its fun and when the wife doesnt complain because she feels you have abandoned her for a pretty Jeep.

Ron

Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

I wish I had just an ounce of the skill and craftsmanship that you have, my friend... My Jeep could use that kind of attention!

It's cheaper also, when a Jeep widow feels abandoned, bad and costly things can happen

There would be a cold front pushing through this weekend, cooled it down outside very nicely. Jeep is getting nothing though, smoking some ribs and chillin by the pool. I thought about it all day, in a few weeks its going to be way over 100 and then I will be ready to fool with the Jeep. I will go out and take a few pictures to update you guys here in a little while.

This should shine some light on that question. Thread started on the flop by the new owner
