Yeah, I think the Craft Shack is far too effeminate for a Jeep shop!! Well done, Paul. Better to have a shady place to work on the Jeep with summer coming on.

Wait a minute now! ... That was my work shop before it was her craft shop and you're calling it effeminate? Just kidding .... My new one has somehow become a lot bigger as it has progressed ... I have NO idea how that happened!!!!

It is taking away from jeep work but it is close to getting done.
What are the dimensions of your second workshop? I really like the design for my own!

The front cover is 12 x 32, the main interior is 24 x 32 and the back storage is 14 x 30. I am going to build a 12 x 26 side shed on the left for covered parking of my duck boat too one of these days.

Just a note if you are going to do the power steering upgrade also. Don't just buy the $30 GM power steering pulley installer. Go to the counter and ask them if they have a new rental one. If they don't they can get you one on the next truck and it is the same price. The big difference? It comes with a hard case for storage AND it comes with the bolts to do Ford pulleys too for the SAME price.

When I was first starting this project I had to remove and clean out the poly 20 gallon tank and skid plate. I dropped a logging chain and some kerosene in the tank and swirled it around by hand for a while and then water jetted the tank out and let it air dry for a couple of days upside down. It was tedious but it worked. Then, one of the guys on Capital City Jeepers saw my thread and told me I had been wasting my time and energy ... and I needed to have more ingenuity ... here was his plan!

That's not a bad idea really, for a metal tank. But I'm curious why you had to clean out your poly tank? Mines been on for 17+ years and it looks clean inside.

It sat for years with gas in it and had varnish, sludge and crud in it .... not to mention the remnants of this ......

Welcome! Pull up a chair! Let me know if you find a similar Dead sticker somewhere, I am pretty sure that one came from a surf shop over near Carolina Beach North Carolina.

Yep! I tell you . Getting that poly tank out of the skid plate after 30 years of crud is not a simple task either. I framed, beat pryed, banged and scraped for 2 days. Finally I got a jet nozzle for my water hose and just kept running it around where I could on the sides. I had a stick tied to a rope in the sending unit hole and slowly was able to work the skid plate loose. It was a real PITA. Funny part is..... with my bad back I was having issues so a friend offered to bolt the tank back up there for me. He didn't hook it back up when he did so I'm taking it back down this weekend

I finally blew everything else off to spend at least some time on the jeep. Got the intake and manifold back on, 23 lbs doesn't seem like enough but that's what it says for most of them. I was about to put the EGR back on and decided to delete it. But I don't have a plate to cover it. I decided to modify the EGR itself.

First I took a sawzall and removed the body of the EGR. I could not for the life of me get the rest of the shaft and valve out though? Anyone?

I tapped out the hole for a 7/16 bolt but I need a shorter one. I will make sure it seats against that valve to hold it in place to keep it from rattling until someone can tell me how to get it out.

With the right length bolt it should look better than me hack fabbing a plate.

At that point Paul I just welded the hole closed. It seems to be working fine. Unless that's the reason all of my oil keeps blowing out of the engine! Make sure you have a good gasket behind it.
