Swapped out the tps. Now its running but has a low idle. Going to adjust it tomorrow.

Sprayed shock/suspension bolts down with pb blaster in prep for tomorrow. I just tore into its suspension early this year so i hope it goes smoothly.

Should be a good over-all learning experiance for the gf thou.

Finally got around to painting my cladding. I think it looks so much better.

Also got the new(to-me) coils in the gf's jeep. They worked out perfect. Only snag we ran into was the RC shocks we picked up didnt have the front shock stud nuts. It a weird size and tsc didnt stock it.

I finished installing the heater in my post above. So toasty in the garage.

I pulled one carrier bearing. One. Axle is 90% sandblasted.

I can hear the rain. Is it turning to ice?
