    No Tail Lights

    I rebuilt a VW bus engine only to find out afterward that the fault was really the inaccurate compression tester that I borrowed from my buddy that owned an auto repair shop. One should always follow the old carpenter's adage, measure twice cut once. And then there's, I cut it twice and it's still too short!
  2. TV mini-series Lonesome Dove starring Robert Duval and Tommy Lee Jones. The book by Larry McMurtry is done considerable justice and it is a great read also.

    Perfect! Only thing missing is a view of the chrome bumpers but one can't have everything. Good job!

    One of our own is down

    I am deeply moved by Don's passing as I'm sure all of us are here on CC. It's a sad day indeed. He will be missed as he has been already. Wishing his family peace in their time of grief. Here's to you Don!

    moon go bye bye

    Pete, nice photo in spite of the tripod. Watched it here through some fairly high power binoculars. Haven't had a really good camera since the invention of digital Totally clear skies, 32 degrees and about 5k feet. Looked just like the photo

    preventing rust?

    Recommended to me by a local body shop. Purchased and appears to work quite well. Free delivery in 2 days with Prime. Corroseal https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CRFYG0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. If I remember correctly, with the pan off you can check how much slack is in the timing chain. Mine was pretty loose well before 200K. I replaced it along with the harmonic balancer. Easier to do while engine is out.

    Fender Flares

    I expect I will be heading down that road as well on my next flare. I'd rather be fishing.

    Center Console Options

    I believe up to and including the 96 will just drop in. After that there may be mods but not really sure. I tried to fit a 97+ at the junk yard into an MJ and it was not a drop in.

    Fender Flares

    I used penetrating oil several times over a couple of days before removing one of my flares. I still managed to break 3 of them. Hard to see that you're going to break one until it happens. Next one I will likely take the wheel off and use a dremel and rotary brush on the threads after oil and see if that improves my success rate.
  14. An added incidental while you're at it. This from Hornbrod some months back. Read down to my question about which part as there is some confusion about which one of two is correct at the beginning of the thread. I found it a worthwhile addition.
