Mine's not a wagoneer, but you gotta deal with it. I'm excited and no one here cares.
Apricot got some new shoes! She's now sporting a brand new set of BFG A/T 31x10.5x15!!!!
She also got all new front brakes. Stock rotors; 84 k20 calipers, pads, and hoses. I had to customize both rotors and one hose. New stock rear brake hose. Tomorrow will be the buying of the rear brakes (my pnp ones wore out finally).
Also lately, She got a new headliner, which I covered in goldish corduroy.
I remade the door panels out of plexiglas and covered them with the stock fabric (so they still look 30 yrs old). Put the chrome strips in the arm rests. Installed mechless head unit. Couldn't fit it in the glovebox, though. Added round speakers in the doors. Installed rearview mirror. Windexed windows (best improvement of the list)
New doors! Apricot's a 76, and I put on doors from an 81, which are the different lock setup. If you switch the latch side on the cab (which requires new holes), you can retain all door functions. I, however, did not do this. I switched the latch part inside the door. I used two of three original mounting holes without having to modify anything. I can no longer lock or unlock my truck from the outside. Oh well. Kinda stands out, and nothing inside worth stealing. New doors also have tinted windows, and the gaskets on the vent windows are way better than my old ones. Ordered window wipes from TGW (sorry bjs, but they were cheaper). Will get the rest of them a little at a time. Donor truck and my truck were painted the same color at the factory. My truck has 30 yrs of nv/ca sun, and the donor has 30 yrs of az sun, so the doors are quite a bit lighter. Looks like a good waxing would even it out. Too bad. I'll deal with the off-color doors.
Ran my dedicated cab ground wire. 8ga from cab to ground bolt by battery. All grounds (that I could find) ran straight to the 8ga. I am also going to add one more wire from the 8ga to the dash. Used that opportunity to clean up my toggle switch wiring.
Anyone got any advice how to get the engine noise outta my speakers? Ground is straight to dedicated ground wire. Power comes from fuse panel, through 1 toggle. Speaker wires are good. I have the chevy style alternator.
