Installed a new stainless steel front bumper. Work on the fuel and temp. gauges. Trying to figure out why my jeep is so hard to start after it sit for a few days.

Today, fixed electric choke problem! It wasn't getting power.


I've only had it for 6 days and have already:

New water pump

New thermostat

New (d-shaped steering wheel 15") steering wheel. I highly recommend this, I went from no being able to get in without squeezing my leg in to almost being comfortable getting in.

Fixed choke

Installing tach

Removed soft top <first time, what a treat!

Installed stereo

-
O, and I found it funny that my nephew choose to play in my jeep over going to the playground.

Was busy the last 2 weeks...

Bought a Waggy Dana 44 Rear axle.......



Did some body work with POR15.....damn salty air in Hawaii..........







Installed a temporary cover for the Jeep so I can ship my transmission and rear axle over to the Big Island (getting them installed).



Installed a new Yellow Top Optima.......killed my old Red Top by accidentally turning on the hazard lights.


Installed a 14" K&N X-Stream Air Filter (Breathes much better now.....)

SWEET MILITARY JEEPER....you and I was on the same page today.

I cleaned, scrubbed, and scrubbed again the interior floor of the BlackPearl. Then I Purple Power cleaned up, put some Metal Ready(that stuff is awesome) on the rust scale, washed it all of and put a nice coat of POR-15 down.

Getting the BlackPearl ready for Herculiner!!!!

OH and she is officially naked for the summer. The jeep that is!! Louisiana weather "forced" me to take the doors and the hard top off for a wonderful drive around.

Rebuilt the Carter Carb. First time rebuilding a carb. Worked out really well reinstalled it and the CJ is running great. Drove her around for about 40 minutes and not a stall at a stop light. Now for the next project.
