  1. Seat is there, no covering though, also missing passenger side glass. It had a few layers of wood in the bed with a spare laying back there, no fluids other than oil. I'm finding out that I was probably taxed for a couple hundred pounds of Arizona dirt that has been collecting in every possible corner, nook, and cranny possible. Got a bug last night and started hosing stuff down after ripping the wood out, driveway now has a dried desert running down it. Plus it has that monster rear bumper on it from it's farm life.
  2. Finally got the majority of projects at the house wrapped up, so we pulled the truck of my in-laws property yesterday. Got it weighed 3320#, dropped it at the house and headed to the DMV, was an out of state purchase that required multiple different items to get a clear CO title. With that being said and done, the banging of knuckles began.
  3. The one installed is dry rotted in other spots like the windshield is. I'm in the same boat with the door seals though.
  4. Here's what I plan on using all my fixed glass: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NL48HSE/?coliid=I2YP270WU5A2YG&colid=2U54QLMAVKE8H&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it I'll probably find a universal door weather seal too, gonna have to bite the bullet with vent windows and roll up though. just my 2 cents. My current windows all have this style:
  5. I definitely have to figure out how to get out there next year, this looks like an all around good time. Glad I didn't try to go this year, since work has me in mandatory training right now that doesn't allow me to miss more than 2 hours of class....... Only upside to class is the cool stuff I get to play with.........
  6. Glad the long drive around the block went well. Also a good find on the Reverse issue...... Let your weekend of shake downs continue....
  7. Give it a shot....If nothing else a good learning experience. Wish my run around beater was a truck, but for $600 and a clean title, the little PT Cruiser "$hit Shaker" gets the job done for me as a commuter. Wifey took over my Jeep..... funny how that works.
  8. I would think that scuffing/sanding the existing primer and clear would be enough for single stage to stick and cover. In my past painting experiences (all done in the garage at house) I've used the single stage over rattle can primer that had been sanded with 220. Of course I wasn't looking for a trailer queen. I built em for driving and enjoying. My 2 cents. Eric
  9. We had the rain for 6 hours before the temp dropped yesterday and the snow started flying, so driveway was a skating rink till the sun popped out this morning.
  10. Well, it's been a fun 24 hours here in Colorado Springs. Got kicked out of work yesterday at 945, watched the weather fall apart yesterday afternoon, watched neighbors fences get blown over and tossed around like leaves in 8 foot sections. Now back at work 2 hours before needed time to have the drive in be mostly dry roads. I know other parts of the city and especially out east of town in the plains got hammered with snow drifts and closed roads....... Record 97mph wind gusts at the airport only 3 miles from the house, power was out for 2 hours, but we all survived.
  11. It's gonna be a long day at the shop, knowing that it's got a spark of life!!!
  12. Brent, Yes the arm pits might get funky from time to time, however this is getting added to next years calendar for me in CO. That is of course depending on when the trip with the wife to Alaska is finalized. Thanks. Eric
  13. How often does the UPS truck have to drop off all your food needs from Chewy.com? I thought it was rough for me with a 4 kids and 2 dogs.......kids are between 10 and 20 all at the house too....
  14. That's impressive........
  15. I 2nd the relay notion too. Additional wiring/components yes, but worth it the long run when done correctly. My 2 cents in past wiring projects with a central fuse box, I would pull all fuses and check circuits as completed 1 by 1 to find any issues that way. Example of only fuses needed for ignition, then moving to accessories and other items, till completed.
  16. This definitely sounds like my kind of gathering, just won't be able to do it this year. Gonna shoot for next year, by then I'll surely have parts available for those who might need or want them. Flippies are the perfect footwear for beer and darts too!!!!!!
  17. Just curious with the notes about the fan assembly, does anyone have a PN to reference for a replacement? Thanks. Eric
  18. Looking good! Next thing we're going to hear about is your speeding ticket through the neighborhood on a test drive.
  19. I understand that draft seals are only on cars, however this could potentially work if you wanted to add them: Wrong link in 1st post. https://www.kaiserwillys.com/category/weatherseals/draft-seal-kits/clutch-brake-pedal-draft-seal-kit-fits-46-64-truck-station-wagon-jeepster
  20. Hood welting option: https://www.kaiserwillys.com/category/body/hood/hood-parts/hood-welt-kit-with-rivets-top-of-grille-fits-41-66-mb-gpw-cj-2a-3a-3b-5-m38-m38a1
  21. No pic yet. Still working on getting garage ready for starting on the project. Need to build shed in backyard for large tool storage rarely used.
  22. There should be a felt like sea/gasket there with little metal push pins...... Can't see how welding 'em up would hurt other than allowing for future metal on metal contact from cowl and hood not having a spacer. Maybe something like this to fill the holes and create a gap, if a good size can be found? https://www.amazon.com/Glove-Door-Bumper-Stoppers-Rubber/dp/B01N7OE5ZB/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1550785723&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=glove+box+bumper&psc=1
  23. I noticed with the current location of my stomper, my size 12 boots found the stomper to be in a comfy spot, so I planned to move it closer to the firewall, but keeping it under the floor pan like it currently is. Cleaner wiring IMHO.
