Swapped my front shocks out in favor of longer ones so I can utilize my long arms and got my steering painted and ready to install. It should be going on along with my front extended brake like this weekend!

Well I cut my bumper caps to accommodate the tow hooks. I had a couple different tow hooks and eyelets but am going to stick with the factory ones with the big base. They are soaking in Evapo-Rust so I can POR 15 them. Also got my rear spoiler back on. See how long it stays on this time. If the double sided tape lets loose again I guess I will just have to drill next time and bolt it in. Now trying to figure out what I should do next to not waste what is left of a nice, but hot, day.

I tried my hand at some rattle can painting. The passenger reat door had two very deep vertical scratches. Some sanding, primer and Paintscratch color and clear. I did not use the 2k clear. I think if I ever do another panel I might. I am going to wait a few days to sand and buff the clear coat.

The paint is obviously darker on the door but it looks much better than the two scratches it had.

Installed the new headlight harness, will have to check the output tonight. Still have a weird issue, my passenger side headlight doesn't kick on with the high beams. The wire loom is pinched underneath the radiator so I figured it was that but with the new harness it still does it.

I've put in new headlights and changed the interior switch and neither fixed it so I'm kinda of at a loss honestly. My wiper stalk that handles the high beams and wipers has been acting weird (with the wipers) so I thought it might be an issue with the clock spring but I can't seem to find a non-airbag clock spring for the life of me online.

Did you unpinch the wires and fix them?

No I'm going to this week. I thought by-passing that harness would fix it honestly since it's the wires going from the passenger to the driver side and I disconnected that passenger side plug from the light. But the light that doesn't work is the passenger side. It doesn't make sense with how I understand it's wired. I was also trying not to have to mess with the rad.

So yesterday to not waste the rest of the nice day I started messing with the passenger seat that I want to turn into a drivers. Not going to be easy and there will be a fair amount of mickey mousing going on here. I separated it from the frame and then grabbed the cleaner of the two driver's frames which will have to be prepped and POR 15'ed. Let all the rusted seat springs soak overnight in Evapo-Rust with the tow hooks. That stuff is great. I am still on my first gallon. I just put whatever into a container, fill it with enough to cover, let it soak, and put it back in the gallon jug. I figure sooner or later it will stop working but hasn't yet. So still have to prep and POR 15 the tow hooks. Today decided to take take it easy and tackle part of a few on going projects because of the possibility of a shower here and there. Finally got my new cowl seal in. Pulled my rear bumper caps in preparation for putting on the new ones that I bought awhile back. I am going to make a couple of adjustments as to how they bolt on and how I am going to attach my mud flaps to them this time. Crawled under the Jeep to see how the Transfer Case Skid will hang. Which I already POR 15'ed awhile back. Thinking the holes don't line up. Have two in the tranny cross member and one in the uni-body. Thinking 5/16" rivnuts will work in the existing holes and will have to drill one more in the uni-body. Also thinking am going to have to elongate one hole in the TC skid for the uni-body. Also put the plastic part of my running boards and door molding in the Jeep. Goal is too get them to Line-X tomorrow. Thought long and hard about whether to put the door molding back on and decided I would. Hoping that the Line-X'ed running board plastic and door molding will give a nice look to the Jeep. I didn't get a quote or talk to them about my roof skid strips but thinking I would bring them down and see what they say. Not really sure if I want to put them back on. Not like I carry anything up there.

Looks like that posted OK .

Those are pics I stole back from my 'held for ransom' Photobucket account .

And , just to stay 'legal' , I topped off the motor oil in our Country . It seems to burn about a quart in 2K miles . I guess that's not too bad , considering it has 228K on the clock with unknown care prior to our ownership .

Adjustable upper and lower control arms installed. I have pictures but they are potato quality after I was done. Pretty bad about taking pictures while working (i had about 3 ish hours to get it done). Front end is way tighter, was able to actually drive highway speeds on the highway and feel mostly safe which is nice. It needs an alignment badly, waiting for my next paycheck to grab a tie rod then I'll get it aligned and hopefully tires in the fall.

Right now my tire choices are between the General Grabber and the new(ish) Falken wildpeak AT3w . I'm leaning towards the Falken because I've had great experiences with Falken tires (ran them on multiple cars), I've read some pretty good all around reviews (including snow traction), and I don't see a lot of them on the road yet. Mostly on 4 runners if I do. I want to go to a 33 but with my current gearing that would be bad and I don't have a plan to regear in the near future unless I win the lotto or something, I can find the rear Ford 8 for fairly cheap but re-gearing the front and throwing a locker in is $$ because I don't want an auto-locker in the front since this is a DD and drive up in the mountains in the snow during the winter. I currently have 3.07 gears and the Peugeot BA10/5 transmission. So I think 31's are the biggest I could go for now.

Happy Monday!
