I always pre-tin the wire and what ever I am hooking it to. I secure the wire in the connector (for example) and then apply a small dab of flux. I quickly dip the tip of soldering iron in the flux and load it with solder. Then all I have to do it touch the wire/connector just long enough to flow the solder. If I need to draw some of the solder to the back of the connector, I touch the back with the iron and the heat will wick it back that direction.

I used to do wire bundles on UH-1, UH-60, AH-1, and AH-60 helicopters. IIRC, there is about 6 miles of wire in a CH-47 Chinook....


Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Picked up my good-as-new waggies from the powdercoaters. One step closer to taking the 7 back to stock

The black set came out awesome too and are for my friend's CJ8. It will be tan or beige on blackouts. Will look unreal and go good with a Buick 3.8LV6 and 4L60E trans.

Thanks guys, I'm pretty easily excited I know but these make me feel good. Better than new I reckon. The powdercoaters do a three part treatment same as for the frames on our reverse osmosis desalination frames which need good corrosion resistance in case of chips scratches etc.
First is a good full garnet blast then "metal spray" which is basically melting zinc into a powder spraying on, then powder prime then colour. Get this though, $240 for 5 rims! That's cheap even for our overpriced neck of the woods.
We will need to put a tiny bead of silicon or polyurethane in the seam inside and out though and of course the black or blue pinstripe around the white ones. I'll prolly also need to sand out where the nuts land too to be sure we're metal to metal there.

The guy who's 8 we're working on has been caught up with work but I reckon there's nothing like something shiny and new to get us moving again. You watch, he'll stretch some new rubber onto those blackouts and it'll be all engines full ahead!

Gazzo...really like the wheels.

I was able to get a coat of Raptor liner inside today after painting the exterior. It is starting to come together!

Those are awesome. Are you going to put the pin strip back on them?

Replaced the left and right broken side blinkers and ended up rewiring the left one since the socket was fried.

Received my first rock chip in my two year old windshield. I need to check if I have glass coverage on my insurance.
Honestly surprised it lasted this long...

So last night as I was replacing my inside door handles on my '83 cj7 in the parkinglot of my apartment complex, some shirtless guy in a beat up civic pulled up and started asking if I would sell my jeep. I kindly replied that I was not interested in selling it, he then claimed he would pay $10k right then and there. Again, I said I was not interested in selling the jeep, he called me an idiot, said it wasnt even worth his offer and drove off...definitely an odd occurance haha.

Are those wire nuts? Do a quick search on here for jeep hammers wiring basics and that will help you out in the future.

x2 wire nits no good. solder and shrink wrap, or second, use weather pack plugs. I'd go for the former.

Look it's a 4.6!

Yea, this was a quick fix and I'll be coming to correct with crimp terminals. I just did not have any at the time.
