Clay and I had some Jeep work planned this morning. We pulled the tub and started prepping the underside. A couple of things jumped out immediately. Former PO repairs, the inevitable CJ oil stain, spiders, and the biggest problem, a Gremlin!
Wifey made a run to town and picked up "stuff" for us, then ran inside and was ill! This is the second time this has happened to her after eating some home grown eggs. A friend gave us 6 dozen eggs!! Nobody else got sick, which is good, but it makes a tough day when Mama is sick.
My neighbor's worthless child is over here today. I DO NOT LIKE this boy...he is only 9. His father is a joke! Pray for me.
The biggest problem I found was this Gremlin! It was hard getting him out of the Jeep!
Then there was these spiders from a mud dobbers nest. Creepy!
The circled areas are factory pieces installed for forward tub mounts. They are poorly designed. We will have to strengthen them.
This is how to PO attempted to repair the passenger side tub mount. They were originally factory riveted. Does anybody have an idea of the brand of this glass tub?
The PO repair on the Driver's side. He used some kind of epoxy??
Clay using my sander/grinder with 36 grit. We decided we should pressure wash first!
Shots in the sun.
Bottom of tub with the well preserved tranny tunnel.
That's where we are right now. Time to get back to work!
