Put in a new set of autolites. That was the only part of the ignition I hadn't replaced. A couple of the old ones were looking pretty rough.

Patiently awaiting return call from radiator shop plus heard this from my new girl during our post-run stretch...." I like the color of your Jeep and it looks like it should run".......classic and funny.

Cleaned out the storage box in the back of my CJ. I built it to house speakers, an amp, power inverter, tools and so forth and it quickly became a sort of kitchen junk drawer. Now it's better. Along the way I came up with a way of securing my bottle jack using an old fire extinguisher bracket. Just cut down one of the straps since the jack is a smaller circumference than the old extinguisher was. Now off to get some hardware so I can finish securing other things in the box like tire iron, flashlight, ammo box for tools, etc.

(oops, not sure why the pictures uploaded like that - rotate 90 degrees in your mind to view :-)

Got all the lights in the dash working finally. Had to cannibalize some junk yard dash indicator lights to get a complete working original dash lighting system, courtesy lights, tach & clock inc.

Nothing. Gave it a rest after wheeling it yesterday. The good news is that my transmission rebuild was successful.
One trip up one trail left us with one broken axle,a kinked track bar,a broken U-joint, one flat tire, and a broken windshield.

I removed the dash and prepared it for paint. Decided that while I had it out I would replace all the gauges and and dash lights. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/images/attach/jpeg.gif

The great thing about experience is that it allows you to recognize the same mistake every time you make it.

Attempting to replace distributor cap and rotor and damn rusted bolt snapped in half (see pic). I didn't want to deal with rusted bolt so purchased new distributor and replaced that as well.
