I just had my alternator rebuilt and installed. It putting out 16v. I have to take it down and send it back to the shop to be rebuilt again. I should be putting out no more than 14v.

Installed a new brake light switch, did a oil change, replaced two turn signal bulbs and greased all the fittings underneath.

Took it for a drive and the pin that holds the blade on snapped off the passenger side wiper arm..... Sometimes I think it hates me.

I installed the latest prototype designs of my new aluminum grill and headlight guards yesterday. They are in small batch production this week!

More to follow...
Nice floor looks fantastic. Did you remove and reinstall yourself? If so how difficult is that?

My floor had clearly been repaired once (I don't think replaced) and looks a bit shotty.

Shockingly easy. I've just finished the drivers side, so I've;

Replaced all foam with Exmoor from Zack. ZG

Washed original covers

All seat parts powdercoated

Floor pans, seats, sills, etc. pulled, cleaned, foam replaced and all hardware replaced with stainless...

Sourced original cubby, radio-you know who you are-etc.

I will post a few more pics shortly.

And snuck in a few drinks between!!

Donaldson muffler in. Straight pipe sounded cool but kept setting off alarms.

And wired up glowplug relay... Pain with the original wiring diagram so I did my own style.

Very nice. I think I will get on that job this spring. I have some Coniston Green TouchUpDirect waterborne paint and clear coat that I purchased on Amazon. Surprisingly good paint that goes on like powder and dries real even. I used it for all my replacement hinges. After clear and water sanding it looks quite good for a DYI. I have a ton of it left so I think I will try replacing and painting the floor panels myself with that.

why does your switch protrude like that ? Typically the face of the ignition key way is just proud of the plastic surrounds.

Had front and rear diff oil changed. Wanted to do transfer case but the shop didn't have a tool that would fit between the emergency brake drum and the fill plug, oh well guess I'll try somewhere else.

Easily done with a 1/2 to 3/8 reducer and a 1/2 open ended wrench...
