I finally fixed the front hub leak. Then I installed the new air intakes on the wings. It looks like all the parts are assembled and ready to swap the injector pump and fuel tank next weekend.

Not easy by any means.

Sheesh, I'm getting old...

Clay barred the top, washed, then orbital with Zaino PC, then washed, then Zaino Z5. Neighbors laughed and said I'm the only guy who needs a ladder to clean a car.

And that was just the top white part of the Wagon.

I'm so sore I can barely walk....

Failed crimps is the usual suspect when I go digging in the wiring for faults. I like to solder, shrink wrap then tie everything with bar strips.



Headlights work again, and it's the first time both parking lights worked since I've had this truck.

I think it was a quick fix bc some ass f'd up the wiring and didn't know it!

Clean up of non-loved D-90

Over the weekend I removed the Rocky Mountain door tops and painted them black. Not perfect but at least not bare aluminum. Then I cut polished the red paint to get rid of the oxidation. Looks almost new again. Today I ordered some TF tree sliders, a TF 2 inch lift, a new rear tire cover and a new left front wheel arch. I'll paint them all semi gloss black when it all comes in. Next week I have to get the transmission out so I can replace the clutch, throwout bearing, slave cylinder, and whatever else I can find wrong. Then it's summer cruising time.

I pulled the front Diff out of the old RRC to transplant in the 110.

Drove it for the first time in months. Finally 50 deg and no sign of Salt on the roads. This has been a long cold winter.

I haven't had mine since then either. Overseas tour and 2 deployments later. It's had a lot of love these past 6 months though

Changes the thermostat because it was running cold and swapped the plenum hose. Found my old one had a leak underneath. Hoping for improved gas mileage now!
