tried to bolt up the flex plate to my new (to me) 258 and found that the theads were stripped in one hole. gonna try some permatex thread repair tomarrow. i also pulled out my AC evaporator and blower motor. im converting my pump to a air compressor.
I installed a brand new rear driveshaft. Put on a new glovebox door and grab bar. The jeep did not come with them and now the glovebox door hits the grab bar. It seems that I am missing a dash brace. Also found out that the front and rear are geared different. Good day Bad day:suicide:
(that was easily the biggest sticker I'd ever seen on a Jeep)
Yes....it took 3 hours to get it....and I agree it was the biggest sticker I have ever seen on a Jeep
The sticker was kind of baked on the hood from the heat of the engine so even with using a hair dryer to make it more plyable it still would rip every inch or so...
I tried WD40 and Goo Gone on the sticky stuff after I got the sticker off, neither worked very well so after an hour or so of messing with that my wife suggested one of those magic erasers....it worked like a charm....took 4 of them to get all the sticky off.
I buffed the hood with Zymol cleaner wax and put a coat of Meguires Show car polish on it....looks brand new.
Gone but not forgotten: '86 CJ7, '06 Wrangler X, '03 Rubicon, '97 Wrangler, '77 CJ5, '74 CJ5(RIP)...gone and forgotten: 07 JK Sahara Unlimited, '78 CJ5

Removed the ignition switch so I could gain access to the brake light switch to adjust it. Had to remove the spring on the brake pedal to reach the switch. Got the switch adjusted but am now having installing the spring.
What a bad day I had..finshed up mt heater core install,took it for a ride after letting it warm up and checking for leaks,and low and behold when I got back it was gushing worse than before..Disgusted with the 7,I pulled the scrambler out of the car port,and I forgot I used a tie down to hold the rear of the carport down to the rear bumper of ther scrammy...BANG whent the back of the carport...It now has a custom fastback look to it...all in all a good day
