found the cause of my "stalling at the stop light" i believe...
short story is the main lead from the coil to the Distributor was trapped on the edge of the ALT heat shield and rubbing.. literally it rubbed a grove in it about 50% or more to the wire.

So at idle, the short through the remaining wire was enough to cause a stumble and stalling..

again i believe as i've only done 20 miles on it since fixing it (repositioned the lead and taped it, until the new wire set can arrive from Kingsborne)

the joy of 14cux it is amazing sensitive to ignition issues.

BTW, not codes from the stalling at all, i got my CL 45 solved (physically destroyed O2 sensors..drive shaft hit them)

Love it or hate it. Mounted the sand rails. Wanted a location that worked with truck cab and soft top. I have forward facing bench so I was able to use existing holes where the old troop seats mounted. Make pretty good seat backs

Similar location as the MOD Wolf XD. Too bad they are not black anodized.

personally, I like it, especially given the truck cab/soft top combo and forward facing seats

Installed the EGT probe on the 200tdi manifold.

Yes, it's cocked at a slight angle. Not sure why it occurred, because the drill went in straight and so did the tap. Oh well *sigh*

Also I've had to extract lots of broken studs on this exhaust manifold and turbo...very tiring!

Out of curiosity, has anyone used ATV ramps as sand ladders? They are extremely robust and not very heavy.

Paul, i'm sure that you already know, but just in case you'll need to change the strike for the doors. Also, enjoy the new doors.

Made a Photoshop mock up of Gold Wheels to my RRC

I have my latest project which is my 1995 SWB RRC and I have a quart of BBS Gold paint from my 1978 BMW 635csi wheels project. I am tempted to paint my rostyle wheel BBS gold. I figure its only paint and I can always go alpine white or dark gray should gold go out of style. I kinda dig the combination and I think I can only pull off this look with steel wheels. I have a set of 235/85/16's BFGs All Terrain so I will have a skinny look. I already have a set of white Restyles on my 1988 40th Anniversary RRC lets see if the purist don't end up rock pounding me. What are your guy's thoughts...... too "FootBaller" of a look?

Why would you put Rostyle wheels on a '95 RRC?

I am building this Retro Grille that has the Vertical Grilles for a that vintage 70's look.

Hoop Foam Repair

Attempted to repair the rubber/foam on the C-Hoop. Looks like previous owner was careless with fiberglass top fitting and removal. I probably should have spent more time getting the texture to match but figure I can always go back and touch up if it holds. Been on about a month now. Used a combination of gasket maker and rubber spray.

Hells bells. I was ready to order some Td5 hinges but wasn't sure on strikers. Do you know the part number or description?

Thanks,

Paul.
