Finished installing shocks, Koni heavy tracks. Rear needed new upper shock mounts as the threads were totally knackered. Guess someone went apeshit with the impact wrench. Luckily no rust behind mounts. Installed tires and went for celebratory ride with one of my daughters, who helped this afternoon. Noticed a knocking sound coming from the front it was a loose steering box tie bar. Bolt was loose at the panhard/chassis bracket. Tried to tighten and the bolt shaft sheared.

I'm planning on Saturday to see if tightening the front wheel bearings fixes the wobble.

double check your tie rod ends and swivel preload as well.

I changed out the tensioner bearing. It seems that I still have a bad bearing someplace.

Installed a sweet shovel mount on the driver side wing. Then took it out for a drive and apparently I fried my starter solenoid. It had been clicking and having issues from time to time but a few turns of the key and it would start the diesel 2.5 up just fine. Not tonight. Of course it waited until I left the house. So I also just spent $185 on it. It works for two weeks, then takes a month off. Are we sure they're not French?

I had a bit of divine slack and clunk. I think this may have been the issue.

Surgery.

The Cube went under the knife; rotten crossmember was entirely cut off, along with sections of the rails affected by terminal rust - chassis was 3D scanned previously and a custom jig made - and new bolt-on crossmember is being made.

Finally!
I've been thinking about this for a whole year or more.

Once the chassis will be in shape again, mounts for the rollcage will be welded on, then the rear tub will go back in place and the rollcage dropped on.

I can't wait.

Hmmmmm. Now I think I know what one of my problems may be.

Took the hard top off for the first time in years. Now I remember why I haven't. Pain in the ass.

Reassembling the interior (loosely) to get it over to get an inspection sticker. Need to make a few trim panels to hide my wiring and future AC ducts.

Clean up

Removed the homemade snorkel that was on it when I bought it. There was some damage to the fender under the snorkel, want to get it fixed, but I just bought a Safari-snorkel, so I may just through the new one on to cover the dent.

Used some plasti-dip to cover the diamond plate on the door sills and bonnet wings. Wheels are next, just to hold over until I decide on new ones.
