Oops. Picture didn't attach. Guess I'll have to figure out how that works.
What sliders did you go with? Who did the install?

Swapped out the bad battery and got the truck running. Tried to replace the broke parking brake cable but after 2 hours. Went to the ABC store for some vodka and tequila. Only question I have is how the hell do you get a wrench onto the nut on the inside of the mounting bracket.

Personally I wouldn't use crimp connectors back there. I'd go for solder & heat shrink followed by loom tape (like electrical tape but without the adhesive).

figured someone would say that... those wires hanging on the right have to be routed back up on the top side of the frame -- when you finally connect them back you are working in pretty tight confines with 16x wires. Only way to do it was route one at a time, connect it, heat shrink it and then pull another one.

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.
