Took a break from serious Jeep work and put the painted body armor on. Here is a bad picture.

Hey, what kind of screws am I supposed to use for this windshield cowl seal? I didn't have anything to go off of...is it going to leak with these machine screws and washers?



If anyone is wondering, I'm the one that got kicked out of bed due to Jeep parts, not my wife. :P

There close enough, originals were oval head screws with a finish washer.

Yes, you will have clearance. Now... making it so it doesn't leak water all over your feet during a rain... THAT's gonna be the challenge.

Going to post a couple updates in a couple posts.

So I had this hole that all my coolant poured out from. Did I tell you guys this story? Where I noticed my feet were wet after four gallons were on my shop floor? Anyways...



I was lazy and did not want to remove my exhaust after getting all the cables and everything the way I wanted.

So I tried finding a bolt that would fit, and modifying it:



That didn't work...different thread or something. It would go in a good ways then stop. I took it to the hardware store and we thought we found the right replacement but it just didn't work.

So I went back to the original. Which meant taking everything out and putting it back together:



Next I wanted to fix my brake light, which was not adjusted right. This is one of those two minute fixes that ends after an hour and a half and spinal injury. But I got it. I had to weld a new clip and bend it and paint it all over again.



This is a bit back, as I showed you some pics of it painted, but now you get to see my temporary seat before I backed it out of the garage:



Another story I might have mentioned, but I got the Jeep out, but due to me not having the vacuum hooked up right...and not having enough ATF in the tranny, I couldn't get it back up. It was pretty embarrassing, but my trailer worked off its purchase price by keeping me from rolling into the neighbors living room. :|

But I got it washed and painted, as you know already:











next post incoming

When I got the painting done I was absolutely disgusted with how the armor turned out. I had painted over the crinkle powdercoat and it looked like crap. So I spent some quality time with the power sander and some hand sanding:



Washed em up real good with dish soap and got Jeff to help me carry them around. :P


After painting I was really happy with the smooth look as you guys saw last time I posted.

The next part of my adventure took place at Jake's. I got me a seat riser for the passenger...after about 40 mins of separating:



I still have yet to get the slider off. xD

I ALSO got...guess what...TWO sets of nutmeg sun visors. Jeff has one set as backup for me now. :P I was pretty dang happy. I wasn't even going to ask Jake because they are so rare but he said heck yeah he had some. Man, to have a Jeep "junk"yard!

My new windshield frame had the holes already tapped for some screw that I didn't have (for the windshield wiper motor). I wanted to use my 1/4" 20 stainless, so I retapped it.



After some research and playing around with it, I got the linkage all back together and lubed up. I also sleeved the cable so it didn't look so out of place:



I only am using one speed, low. I found out that the motor grounds to the frame...not sure what the green wire is for. Are these things three speed? Dunno.



I put the hinges level for the install:



Everything seemed to go well. I got all but one of the screws in no issue and thought I was going to take an early lunch, but this little sucker decided to be a pain. It would NOT line up no matter what, and after two hours of trying to make it work, I just jammed in a lobotomizer in it and bent the internal keeper till everything lined up. Brute force was the most elegant solution in this case. Just gotta repaint it now. xD



The PO had just carpet bombed the whole windshield red, so I needed to clean the hardware. Aircraft stripper had the paint off these ?lead? alloy keepers in seconds:



!!!! IT LOOKS LIKE A JEEP!!!!!!
