Hope your doing well for the holidays! Yah the dreaded white stuff, it's great to play in, not so great to work in. Spent an hour digging the dumpster out of a snowbank for trash pick up tomorrow lol. The parts are still sitting in front of the shop. Hope to get them stowed tomorrow. Really want to make a wall art project out of the grill for sure. Looking more seriously into adapting the YJ windshield frame to replace my rusted one since good used CJ ones are not around anymore. Probably just hold the rest for another day.

CJWoodman I got a call today from a guy who collects scrap stoves from my parking lot. He asked if I was interested in some jeep parts. He was cleaning out an old timers garage with all sorts of stuff. The owner was in to jeeps, it looks like he didn't finish his project. This is what he dropped off. Some older cj parts. Replacement fenders with the stickers still on them. Also grills, a dash, a few hoods, one a yj hood, rust free doors, I was hoping for paddle style doors, not sure what I will do with these doors. A yj windshield frame in ok shape. Going to see if it can be made to fit my cj8. Either way I just felt I couldn't let all this go to the scrap to be destroyed. He's going back again soon so I told him to keep the parts coming.

They were $134 and the lead time wasn't bad. I had them in about two weeks. Found this video on someone fitting them up.

CJWoodman So here is the next chapter. I want to make my seat belts safe again! This is the passenger side but both sides are in about the same condition. I figure I'll start by sand blasting what's here then assess to see how much of the b pillar, floor and rocker needs to be cut away for the repair. I did't keep the area free of silt and dirt so here is the punishment. The b pillar repair parts from Classic Enterprises look like the original so that should make it a go a little smoother. Probably won't start on this until the new year. I have to get a welder and practice stitching pieces together.

CJWoodman Been busy as most of us are, for me mostly with work but beats being bored I guess. Here are some updates. I got the front drive shaft installed, it took the machine shop two tries to get it right so that took 2 weeks the first round because the yolk was too big, then some vacation time for them, then two more weeks to put the proper yolk on it. Nice product all in all though. Made me miss an event I wanted to attend but maybe next summer. The tires had to get changed, the shop couldn't smooth em out so I chose to switch to all terrains while they were reordering. Put a couple thousand miles on the jeep and it has been awesome to drive. Love the sound of the flowmasters. I like the AT's better now that I have them. I did some light wheeling and it feels so confident off road compared to before. I found some good mounds to pull upon and check the drive shaft clearance. It's so tight I can't believe it doesn't hit the trans pan. The only time it did hit the pan was while taking a left into my driveway. It was in two wheel and wasn't spinning. After inspection I could see that there is a high spot on the yolk weld that I need to clean up and then it should be fine. The body shop I had lined up to paint it backed out just last week and said come back in June 2020, not going to happen like that so I'll make time to get started on the sheet metal repair, probably in January realistically. I already got the b pillars from Classic Industries and will post pictures of them when I can. Looking for a good welder now and should get that for Christmas. I can't wait to get started on the body.

CJWoodman I just got the new rims and tires mounted. 33" General x3's on 15 x 10 wheels. 32 psi seems to be the the correct pressure to keep the tread flat. Next is to mount the spare but I need to modify the tire carrier to the correct pattern first.

CJWoodman So what happened is that when the harness was re assembled the o2 sensor wire plugs were configured in such a way that I reversed the order, the right bank was reading the left and vice versa. I got help from Mike Rowe, the harness assembler who gave me the pin numbers and I chased the wires back home to the blue harness connector at the ecu to confirm. I had to cut a bit of tape and stretch the harness to make the wiring reach but I got it done. I plugged them in to the correct sensors and it's running great.

CJWoodman It's a mixed bag. The exhaust is done and overall I like it but I think I have to have it reworked because the pipe is too close to the starter, it's about 1/2". I love the way it sounds but I am having trouble with the upstream sensors so I can't drive it at this point. There is 12 volts at both sensors connectors but yet the sensors are not heating up. They are new sensors and I verified the part numbers to make sure I got the right ones, so from what I can tell I'm good there . I checked them for ohms on the heater elements, got around 5 ohms and that should be ok. I have some research to do at this point.

CJWoodman So off to the shop for exhaust today. I had to put the top on before heading out because rain is coming and it may be left outside. I haven't seen it together like this in over two years, sure nice to drive it. Here's how it looked. The ride from the new skyjacker hydro shocks was nice. I'm having dual flowmaster delta 50's mounted, can't wait to hear it! I'll post a video when I can of the exhaust.
