I secured all of my new SS brake lines to the frame yesterday.

I finally got my temp. sensor guage working.
After taking apart the dash to get ahold of the speedo cluster and cleaning everyground I saw, it was the sensing unit on the block that was fried. Originally I gad cleaned it all pu when testing the connections and voltage. There were no moving parts on that little bugger, so I figured it only needed to be cleaned up.
If I just spent the $7 originally I would have cheated myself from hours of tinkering.

After removing the steering column to get to that d@-n brake pedal return spring, I cut 1/2 an inch off it, rebent it and put it back in. TaDah! pedal stays up and brake lights go off!! Pulled the headlight switch out, looked okay, so I put it back in until I could get around to ordering a new one. But after I put her back in, the headlights work! Great one less thing to replace. Also finished up the patch panel below the taillight on the driver's side. Had a nice bit of cancer back there that had to be removed. I pulled out the sway bar and soaked all the spring to axle u-bolts down with liquid wrench, getting ready to put in a 4" superlift. Since the drop pitman arm finally arrived, I'm ready to get started!

Drove mine to work today, needed to get some mileage on her, she's been sitting too long due to what I eventually figgered out was an electrical problem.

After a rebuilt carb and new coil, I figured out that it was the magnetic pickup coil in the distributor.

The Iron Mistress runs a lot better now.

I ground off the rest of the bolts holding the roll cage in. I hate torx bolts. But now I can get to doing floor repairs.

Drilled mounting holes in my fiberglass cowl induction hood. Now I just need to get some new rubber spacers for the front of the hood so I can measure and drill for the front latches. Then pull it off and paint!!

Today nothing but this summer will be a busy one. I have accumulated a ton of parts for my baby. I have rocker guards, tires, seats, speedo, tach, tuffy overhead as well as center console, a Hurst shifter and a few other gadgets I haven't picked up yet.

Took 3 YF Carbs and combined them all into one working YF carb that runs my jeep like a champ now. Replaced my door hinges as well.

Finally got my fuel gauge working. There was a comedy of little things wrong that I have corrected over the last several weeks, but I dropped the tank today, tightened the power connector on the sending unit and made sure the gound was good and viola! A working gauge.
I've only had the thing for what...7yrs.

Went on a poker run and pulled the p-side brake hose out of the fitting and the d-side almost out. Did a trail repair on the d-side with new spare hose and put a plug in the p-side. Rode home on 3 brakes.

Finished the twin shifters on the D300 and started back on the rear disk brake conversion. Now if I could just find some wheel studs that have a slightly longer shoulder to fit through the rotor.

I took it to the car wash when it was raining out, so I could spend some time degreasing the engine. It's a bit cleaner now.

I just finished repainting my jeep in 'midnight metallic blue'. I painted it white back in 1987. It was originally black.
