CopynPaste:

Took an M12 1.75 Tap to the Nutserts to get them back to stock after having 1/2" bolts jammed in there from the TC kit the shop put on 3 years ago. Got 6 Grade 8 M12 1.75 40 bolts and washers from Lowe's, which thread on easy after the tap, whereas they would struggle and deform before. All that's left to do is paint the skid and get the friggin exhaust shop to lift the cat up high enough like they were supposed to last time.

I was going to continue my amp-in-console project but I'm too tired from bad sleep.

EDIT: And I just ordered some Delrin Hinge bushings from the BMB Co-op.

Had the Grade 8 hardware come in long ago. Haven't heard a thing about the Blaine washers. No idea if they've shipped. So the TJ remains broken and tarped up at the farm.

I just bought a nearly new top sans windows for $108 shipped so hopefully my back window will zip in without issue.

Started bedlining the sub box, which takes way more bedliner than I expected.

Hoping my sliders ship soon (yes, Metalcloak sliders ordered)

Not real sure what I'm going to do about the tank. May try to cut away part of the tank skid so it doesn't screech so bad.

Top and secret item in.


Having an easy recovery. Gums stopped bleeding, anesthesia wore off pretty quickly, I've had zero pain and I stopped using the head wrap icepack since I had only minimal swelling.
