Nice job on the top.

Installed a new sender in the CJ8 today. Boy do some of these companies put out some garbage. Could even get it to adjust for empty even when it was out of the tank. 1/2 on gauge=empty; 1/2 tank/10 gallons = almost 3/4.

Oh well, at least I know where "E" is.

SCREWS

Finally tracked down the 3 screws that locate the brake drum on to the hub on the rear axle.

At some point in the last 30 years they had been lost and I have been scratching my head over the brake scuffing noise for some time. Turned out it was not sitting right behind the wheel spacers and was a good 1/4" out of true once I got the frame up on blocks and ran it up.

The PARTS GUY here in Denpasar is fantastic but I sat in a jam for 2 hours for a funeral procession before I made it to his place. The screws were not on the parts diagrams (strange as they are hardly unusual) so I sent him scurrying amongst little tubs until he found some that worked. Having that peculiar flat countersink head makes them hard to replicate.

Anyway all spinning smoothly now so I took the kid for an ice cream.

BagusJeep lives in Bali.

A little list...coated the dash with some new paint, restored the jeep logo with it; Painted a cigerette tray, it was rusting to hell; drilled some defroster holes, it is kinda necessary in CT; coated my front bumper with some new paint, too. Side steps were re-coated as well. I only used one can! Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was in a rush to beat the cold front, so I had to move really fast. I don't have a garage, so I'm in the elements.

WHAT? I'm sorry, I have no idea how your car got towed from the spot i'm in. WHAT? Um, no...the winch does not work...

Removed the windshield frame, tailgate, doors, windshield wiper linkage, spare tire carrier, fender flares and some other small parts. Getting it ready for paint in the spring. I also changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. I am going back tomorrow (Jeep is being stored at my brother's house) to remove my Alpine headunit, speaker boxes (the plastic kind that mount to the roll bar right behind the seats), sterring wheel, dash knobs and some other minor parts.
I would really like to remove the dash. Is there an easy way to remove the whole thing without removing the instruments first (speedo, tach, clock, etc)?

That is a clean looking cj. That rear bumper with tire carrier is definitely going to be one of my next buys.

Drove it out in the snow for the first time. Forgot to lock the hubs and wondered why I wasn't getting traction. Noob move. Then found out a light Jeep with heavy tires and engine don't fair well on ice. Need more snow!
