Here we have that new blower motor. I hope it's as good as I've read. It's been getting cold out here. Negative five this morning.

Somehow most of these are supposed to fit in the next pictures

I used to think my favorite part of this whole rebuild project was the opening of boxes from Quadratec or Morris, now I'm simply irritated. I ordered some lights, I got the wrong light for the drivers side. Called, they paid for return shipping and sent a new one. Wrong light again. Finally they just sent me the other side of the same model so I have the same on each side rather than trying to get me the correct one that I ordered. Fortunatley I got it upgraded for free from the 19.99 to the 39.99 lights because the warehouse was screwy. Oh well. Rant over, just wanted to get this done. Two and a half weeks waiting for the correct lights! Yikes.

Will be headed home this weekend(currently at university) to finish the road ready work. I am gonna have a lot of fun with the top. I am not the greatest with fiberglass, it's all a learning process.

So I get a call. My brother, before I can even say hey blurts out "she runs so nicely! Cruised her around the neighborhood"

Apparently my father, brother and a good neighbor got her all road ready today. How I wish I could be there.

The top will be loads of fun, but will get done soon!

The center console, and fuel pressure regulator and she's golden. Wish the weather were warm enough to go without a top :/

I'm looking to sell my hardtop and I'm looking for a price estimate. Anyone give me prices they've seen recently?

Very nice... Well done! I drove a '79 across from Denver to Greenwich a long time ago... Mine was more sea foam teal... NUMA colors. Enjoy your toy!

We all know a Jeep is never finished. I got a stereo to put in her for xmas, but I knew I had some issues with my breaks. I took em in to get looked at, woah. After realizing how much work she needed on the tie-rods, the hubs and the breaks I am out of her for a week or so. Hopefully she makes a full recovery, I'd love to drive her around pumping some tunes.

Also, Idaho is incredibly god damn cold. My driver side soft top window snapped when I attempted to unzip it to not fog up my windows. It's the life I suppose.
