I installed a CRT HEI distributor. It was pretty easy after I read this link at jeepaholics.com. It is the instructions from the manufacturer, but with notes... the notes were the greatest help. I still have to get the timing set right, but am pleased with the dizzy, and with how many wires I got to pull from the engine bay.

Took the top off, and added a fresh coat of wax that was terribly overdue.

Very busy week for me... new CJ and all.

Today I took the hard top off for the first time and went to the beach. It looked a bit odd with full hard doors, but the wife isn't ready to go doorless yet... haha... and before she'll ride I'll need half doors or ride like it is. I was also given a bikini top bought for a YJ, but didn't work out with his family bar... so I tweaked the channels on the front and slapped it on... works great for a free new top. I didn't mount the tie down straps, as it wraps conveniently around my tractor jack mounted in the rear cargo area.

Mike G - I'm jealous.. Not only about the CJ2A, but a large garage, a lift, and a CJ2A..

Got the Eastwood Inner Frame Coating today from the FedEx guy... Now a few warm dry days and I'll be able to start on the frame. It's May and we are still in the 40's here with the weeks at a time of rain..

I wish that was my shop. That's my buddies place. I need to do the Eastwood frame protection to my frame. I primered it with bloxide but it's rusting.

Worked on the AMC 20. grinding, cleaning, painting. Decided to paint a wheel to see if I liked the color. I wanted BLACK, but that's kinda gettin played out. So what do y'all think of the color on the wheel?

FUNNY. Yea, Superior one piece. I didn't feel right even GIVING those axles to a fellow jeeper. I'm trussin it up and disc brakes, 4.10's. I'm not a serious rock climber so hopefully it will be more than I need.

Drove it to work, this morning, after the headlights went out on the J 10.
