my goal is to see every gauge (and switches) of the CJ on a laptop or smartphone with wifi connection...
Hi Gilles.

Nice build so far. I may have missed the point of the gauges being displayed on a laptop? For diagnostic reasons?

Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

Easy's Good!

Hello,

Thanks

The remote gauge ... is of course for diagnotic reasons... but the MAIN one: It's funny...don't you ?...

The other reason is... it's my job...

In France, there is a 'caustic' sentence:

it's useless ? therefore essential !!!!

Seriously, do you know a nowadays car which have this customer option (even Audi,Mercedes, and so on...)

You will keep job of mechanic in garage...

The next step (when the CJ7 will be completely rebuilt), it's to take control remotly of some actions of the jeep ie: horn,lights, and so on...
BUT NOTHING WHICH ENGAGE THE DRIVING SECURITY...

Again it's NOT a priority... I think I have a lot of work before that...

Regards,

Gilles

You show the temp gauge as having the regulator inside but I think you mean the fuel gauge has the regulator inside. Make sure you don't mix up the faceplate putting the gauges back together.





Love the animations and the having a glass cockpit in a CJ would be Awesome.!!

Here's my (tiny but efficient) garage...



And!!! she is on 4 wheels !!! so far ...everything is rebuild but the wheels...

It's quite hard to found a chrome shop in France which is doing wheels

And ... I HATE THOSE RED BOOTS!!!



Some pleasant help ... for the brake line setting...







Sorry for the dust... but my garage is NOT dust proof...



To be continued...

Regards...

Gilles

Hello!

Last (but NOT least) the final batch of powder coating...

Before :



After:





And about the frame...

Everything (but the exhaust) is set...




And the axles breathers are set...





Transmission and transfert case are set "as is" because very low mileage( ~40000 miles) ((no leaks, no noisy and works fine ) the only thing
done: fluid swap and "light" clean up (theses parts will be rebuilt too at the sametime of the engine: I've already these parts as spare parts: T5, DANA 300 and Renault Engine J8S)

So I'll enjoy drive my CJ at the SAME time I'm rebuilding theses parts... and the swap is very easy: ~20 bolts and everything is down !!!



Front details:




Next step: the exhaust... and tub time (mid of july )

To be continued...

Still looking for a business which will chromate (again) my rims wheels

Regards,

Gilles

looks great and agree the red boots don't work for your project, just eliminate them, you don't need the boots anyway just like Hoss said in an earlier post...
