I lost my buddy at the end of last year. Bonham was only six, but cancer can happen at anytime I guess.

Im convinced my wife prefers the cats to me anyways.

Jim,
I hope you're cat hangs in there. It's hard watching our friends get old.

Brian,
I'm sorry you lost Bonham. I hope he lived a good life.

He did. At least I hope he did! He could be a huge pain in the ass, but that is what endears you to them. Kinda like a rover. It can be a pain in the ass, but not sure what I'd do without it.

Looks great Andrew! Keep the pics coming!

P.S.- A point of personal preference (so take it for what you will), but I would have asked for the white letters to be mounted in rather than out on those Michelins. To each his own though! They'll still get the job done!

I was thinking the same thing, haha. I am definitely not a white letter person.

Looks nice. Normally I'm a writing in guy, but I've seen a few defenders where it looked great and very period! Kind of a late '80's tuff Safari look. Disregard first pic of my P38 posted by mistake.

Yeah it kinda looks retro. I didn't give it much thought when they asked me. I just said white out because that's the way they are on the Jeep. They'd probably charge to mount them again if I wanted them reversed.

I think the Michelin looks old school so I would not switch them.

I got a new starter. I decided I wanted a Denso starter because I read they're better than the Bosch. I wasn't able to find a brand new one, so I ordered one remanufactured from Denso. When it arrived I opened the box to discover a Bosch starter rebuilt by Denso. So I sent it back. Then I found the Denso starter rebuilt by Bosch. Strange huh? You'd think they would rebuild their own starters.



I also got a new water pump. It's the OEM Saleri. I read it's better to go with the original one with a composite impeller vs one with a metal impeller.



And I painted my axles today.

Now I know you're tempted, but don't hit that thing with a hammer! Try to restrain yourself ;-)

But in all seriousness with regard to starters, I had the same thing happen to me on the '95 RRC. Also, there is a big difference between made in Mexico Bosch and those from Germany.

Yeah I bet. That's an original Denso made in Italy and rebuilt in the USA by Bosch. The original Bosch is longer and doesn't have the end cap. Beck/Arnley also rebuilds the Denso, in Mexico. I don't know if they do a better job than Bosch. Here's the label on an original.
