I warmed up the garage and bent up some prototype powersteering tubes:






Then I boxed them up, FedEx'd them to a place that will make some custom ones in stainless steel.

Asked myself when I was gonna get off my butt and do some more work to it after the nasty call from the bestfriends wife. Guess she is mad about it being in her garage, lol. Bestfriend laughs!

Frame is almost done, tack and ready to bead it, brake and fuel lines, motor is close, tub is still in seeking mode, I would be happy to have it back and running by May 15th. Then I find a great deal on a Ford 9" and 38.5's. So might have to reconsider my original plan.

Nothing today, but several parts arrived and will be installing this weekend ( gas filler hose , grommet, plastic defroster duct, wiper/washer pump ). Just scratching the surface.

Got my tire carrier on, lightbulbs for my front running lamps, parking brake adjusted, tranny linkage adjusted, Ahhhh, feels good to be getting to the bottom of the barrel. I can't wait for it all to start over again.

Dropping $2500 because PO was an idiot when he did the engine swap. Put 304 in with a 4 spd (borg&warner stamped on the side) Didnt put the bellhousing on right,missing 5 bolts, found out the through out bearing and pilot bushing are junk which cause the shaft on the end of the tranny to wobble around. Yeah you get the pic. If you dont know how to do it. Take it to someone who does. Man I am going to go bald with this one.

Drove it. Yay. Can't tell you how awesome it is to say that so often after 5 years of sitting. You know!
Drove it.

I broke mine. At least I think snow. Oops did I say snow?

Well yes right in the middle of this blizzard, blowing and drifting so fsat I finaly took out my windows because they were being covered with snow I couldn't see backing up. I think I did everyones driveway at leaset 4 times in one day. By the time I finished the last one it was time to go back to do the first one. Only got stuck twice.

Wait until it's over. Can't it's only a CJ5 got to keep up with it. I did make some impressive piles though. at least 6' high. I couldn't see over it from my jeep.

What did I break. Engine mount I think. Im getting a lot of flopping around in first gear.

Anyway, spent spent quality time with my CJ this weekend.

How did I get stuck? 1nce trying to move a mountain of snow back to make room for more. Dropped a front tire in the drainage ditch it raised one rear tine in the back. Couldn't get the plow off the pile. Second time was in my drive and got caught sideways off the road. Could go forward and back but not up or down the drive. Either end was blocked by 4' piles of snow. A little tug from a Kubuto and I was out.

Next year new tires! These are 4 years or more old.
