Sure, just use a heat gun about 1-2" from fender flares and as the fender heats up they start to sweat and turn back black, work your way from one end to the other. It is pretty cool to watch, almost looks like you are painting them.

Owning a TJ is getting quite frustrating.. I've been trying so hard to save money for California Roots: Carolina Sessions in Wilmington, NC, and nothing has worked out since day 1. First unexpected repair: battery. I had to replace my battery last weekend... then my radiator developed a significant leak, so I bought a new radiator, thermostat, and gasket last night to put in tomorrow... then tonight, during my short trip to Walmart, my brake pedal lost about 95% pressure. I'm guessing master cylinder? Pumping the brakes a few times with the engine off stiffens the brake pedal up. Goes to the floor with the Jeep running. Great, just what I needed!

What do you guys think? Master cylinder?

I am wondering how brittle that will make them over time. Basically your cooking. Just a thought ....

Time to go bathe. I've been working on the Jeep for about 5 hours today. New radiator, and thermostat went on relatively easily... then diagnosing the brake problem didn't go as well. The problem is definitely in the drivers side rear brake drum area. A line appeared to be broken. We went ahead and replaced the little wheel cylinder and got new brake line, but hey gave us the wrong size fitting on the brake line and were kind of dead in the water. It's almost dark, so I guess we'll finish tomorrow.

What do you guys think? Master cylinder?
Check for leaks first, or old/brittle brake hose. Worst case scenario, you're in for a new master cylinder.

JEEP = Just.Empty.Every.Pocket.

Nothing to the Jeep today, but the other day installed some new spark plugs. Today, among cleaning my room, I organized my parts that need to go into one pile. SYE, MML, BL, extended brake line (rear). Still need a rear driveshaft and upper adjustable control arms, along with a new transmission mount. Then I will need to find the time to get it all put in.

2 jobs, plus holiday season coming up (retail. :/) = no Jeep time.
