History I found MoonShine in Tampa, where she probably saw more tittyz than the Stripclubs up there. She was well cared for in her previous life, but I noticed the clutch needed a new throw out bearing, so I started taking her apart. As I did this, I found the Tranny (Bruce Jenner) leaks, as well as the transfer case, so I figured to really get up in her guts and reseal, and get rebuild kits for the whole drivetrain. Oh, and I painted it all in AMC Blue, and POR15 Black on everything that I could, eliminating all rust along the way using Evap-O-Rust and wire wheels. Iíve been working on her part time on and off, just because Home projects have been taking priority (yeah I canít believe I said that either, but I have 2 young children), due to hurricane damage last year to the roof, then the water heater blew out in the garage next to the Jeep, A/C problems, oh yeah, and I had to dig up my outfall structure to the septic tank and leach field to correct crappy construction practices. So I am finally getting back to her and hope to get her out of the garage and back to the road, or Off-road. We are almost there, and now the kids are asking me when is it gonna be done? I am getting Anxious and Excited! I am just running into little problems of either figuring out what parts were used from what the previous owners have swapped out or ďbastardizedĒ. The Mystery Continues...
