Well I dove into the rear breaks tonight with the intention of replacing both wheel cylinders, but once I got in there, I realized they were actually in good shape, along with all the other parts in there! The bleeders even came loose without a fight. While I was messing with the right side is when I found my leak though. Brake line corroded through right at the cylinder. Ran and got another, and put it in only to realize the line coming back to the rear end also had a hole in it. Going to try to splice a new chunk of brake line in there tomorrow. seeing that really made me want to start restoring it now, but I pulled myself together, and decided to keep putting band aids on it, and at the same time, start stockpiling parts that I will need for the resto. Once I have everything I need, then I'll start the frame off. With my antique registration, I don't need to worry about it not passing inspection at least!

Just got an Email from PayPal saying my $102.00 payment to Classic Enterprises for my wheel well repair panel was refunded!?!

Never even heard from them, other than a receipt. I guess they feel I can do better by making it myself, which I shall do now!

Better a refund than an unexpected charge!

Thats right! Took that money and ordered a Prothane master bushing kit to replace all the 30 year old bushings in this thing. Won't use them all right away, but I'll have them all once I really get going on the rebuild.

I also found a good gas tank skid plate, and transmission skid plate in my inventory of spare parts, both of which need replaced on the new Jeep. So I'll sand blast them, POR-15 them, and put them up on the shelf waiting with the rest of my parts. New fuel line came already, and I'm going to have to find a new windshield frame, brake line kit, and some other odds and ends before I dive in too deep.

Since I plan to keep this mostly stock, and I'm starting out with a complete vehicle with almost everything in working order, my parts list is quite smaller compared to the last build! This restoration is going to be more like take everything apart, clean and paint, and reassemble!

Find any bump stops?

Edit: I am (mostly!) just teasing you, if you don't have them I will just buy some. I imagine the bolts are broken off in the frame which is why they didn't get back on. No big deal.

Haven't had a chance to look for them yet, Tomorrow is garage cleaning day. And no bolts were broke off in the frame. If one wouldn't come out, or broke off, I welded a stud on top of it, and heated it up cherry red and got it out. So new bump stops will go right in.

Cool, thanks. I didn't mean any offense about broken bolts.

Here's my last band aid on the braking system. Holding good, and she stops on a dime now. Brake light even went off. Now, on to the next project!

Is it bad when you've memorized your credit card number from buying so many Jeep parts online??

It's even worse when the guys working at the local Advance Auto have it memorized.

Or an order for anything other than Jeep parts gets you a call from the bank for suspected credit card fraud....
.......And the wife tells them they can keep it because they spend less than you do.....

Hasselback, those look like the compression sleeve type fittings. Are they? If. So, they aren't suitable / rated for brake systems. For brakes you should use a double flare tool and flared fittings.

I know they're not the "proper" fittings, but like I said, it's just a band aid, not a permanent fix. Everything brake related will get replaced with SS lines when I do the resto.

All I did to the jeep today was drive it a bit. Spent the bulk of the day cleaning and organizing the shop, and built some shelves for all the parts. It's amazing how much more room I got now! I think I even wore out my helper!
