I think I used 3/8" hard line and 5/16" rubber line for my fuel setup… I forget. I was not as ambitious as you with the brake lines!!! I got mine pre-bent from Classic Tubes… I was too afraid!!! Keep up the hard work!!!

I picked up some of that nice green brake line in 25' coil from Carquest. Had to wait 3 days but well worth in with the ease of bending over regular steel line, and it's rust proff.

Is it green? Shoot, I thought it was bronze!! It does bend easy. I expect to finish it up tomorrow... I mean today!!

Went to the woods this afternoon. Climbed up into my trusty Warren and Sweat climber. Miraculously scaled the tree! Sat there for 2 and a half hours. Then, I saw movement!! I watched four decent bucks cross the creek about a hundred yards away. I KNEW they would come my way. I clipped my release to my string. The first buck was the best one. I was ready.... but they went the other way!!!!!! I was shaking so bad I probably would have shot my foot! I had to sit down for a bit. Then, more movement!! THIS IS IT! But it's only a yearling doe, and she's about 10 yards away from me... so I watch her, and she keeps turning around. Then, A BIG doe comes out. RIGHT TO ME! A 10 yard shot. SMACK... we have venison! And 30 seconds later... do you remember the hog pictures?? That big 'ol hog comes rambling by. RIGHT BY!! Spitting distance! And my freakin' arrow was stuck up inside the quiver... wouldn't come out. I made too much noise and too much movement. The hog disappeared. Maybe tomorrow??

A pic of where I am. Waiting on Baby to get back from AZ... then I should finish the lines. I am noticing several things that I probably SHOULD do while the tub is off, like filling the tranny and Tcase. But my wife will have a cow if I call her and add something else to the list. So I'll do that the hard way later on.

Wifey just called and AZ is OUT of the hard lines!! I need some short pieces to finish the connections. They are also out of the rubber-coated clamps. She is headed to NAPA. Keep your fingers crossed!

Bow opens here on Oct 1 and you just got me psyched! I missed all of last season- that will not happen in 2011!

I have all the lines in place. YAY!! The lines bend very easily by hand... just take your time, bend a little, move down, bend a little, move down, and so on. Don't be afraid to try it. Even if you kink a line (which you won't!) they are CHEAP! I used rubber-coated clamps to secure them to the tub. I don't want them vibrating/rubbing and wear a hole in them. All pieces are joined with a femaleXfemale threaded coupler It is a great feeling to get these lines installed and the fuel line connected to the pump. To me, that means I am moving forward. I am now ready for the tub.

I thought the clouds were cool! Waiting on the storm to arrive, but it will probably blow over. It will have an impact on whether I go to my stand in just a bit.

At your age I would have thought the arthritus would have prevented you from doing the bending by hand.

Okay now that I've ribbed you about something, I can now that I'm old too. Anyway the tubing looks good Scott. When's the tub going on? Have fun hunting if you go too.

Thanks Big Jim!




The tub WAS going on tonight. I had the gang out there to help set it on. I had to tighten up all my hard line connections first. Then, I realized I hadn't bolted my tranny Xmember back up after making a lowering kit. So I had to do that too. Clay and Jake had school work to finish, so I was hurrying, or TRYING to hurry, which is the wrong thing to do when working on an old Jeep. Everything was going wrong... little irritating things that drive you absolutely bonkers, like dropping a 3/8 lock washer and having it roll across the shop floor, ending up under the my tool chest! Anyone who has dropped the Xmember knows how rough it can be getting it back on! It wasn't too bad... I was only pouring sweat, but I stripped two frame nuts when torquing them! ! ! ! Words fail me.

So here's pics of the %$^#! tranny lowering spacers. Why bother painting anything at my house? I CAN see that the tranny angle is good... so something positive came out of this last rush. But now I have to drop the skid again and figure out what to do about the nuts.

Keep the faith bro! I can't even take my tub off until the last snows have retreated from the mountains next year! This last January (2011) was BRUTAL up here. I have plenty to keep me busy though...

Thanks, Chris/Vandy (??)... you're right. I need to slow down a bit, but the work has been going so well. I also discovered today that I am missing a poly tub bushing! Where the heck could THAT have gone!?

I made it back to my stand this afternoon. Had intermittent rain, but it wasn't a problem. Lots of squirrels that kept me fired up! Saw a nice doe at 7:30, then heard a noise behind me, and there were TWO does feeding at 10 yards. I was sitting, facing the tree, and I could barely see them over my shoulder, out of the corner of my eye. I couldn't stand up or I'd be busted. Didn't matter... got busted anyway! They came in on my trail, and I wasn't paying any attention to that. I never heard them!

On the frame nuts, 3 things I've done.
1. A metric tap the next size larger.
2. Cut a rectangle hole in the frame, by the nut. Chishel the old nut off, place a new nut in the frame, install the skid plate, tighten the nut and bolt and weld the nut in place. Make a repair piece, have Clay weld it in.
3. Fastenal has nutserts, kind of like a "T" nut for woodworking, only for steel. You would have to break the old nut out, and weld in the nutsert.

Chris is first name- Vandy part of last name- I answer to much worse. Being back in college is wicked to the ever so important JEEP TIMELINE!! But I am graduating (started in 1998) in May. I told my wife that whatever I am doing I get a month off as a graduation present to myself to finish (HaHa) the CJ. However she forgot that April is turkey season......Bwahahahahahaahhah!
