  1. Start with Cruiser's tips. Cruiser54.com Another thing to check is that the electrical connector on the back of the instrument cluster in fully seated. But you gotta read and knock out many of those tips.

    Eliminator bumper color

    I used Rustoleum semi-gloss black on the front end (did the back bumper too). Took the bumper off, sanded it, and rattle-canned it in my car port.

    driver's window trim

    To remove the trim from the door, you have to take all the glass out (having done it a few times, it's not that daunting), remove the inside and outside scraper seals (easy), and the window channel (easy). The trim is just wedged on around the door frame (like a pinch seal) and comes off with some gentle prying from the inside edge. Remove the lower trim first. It's kind of one of those things to do when you have another reason to be gutting the door. It could be possible to remove the lower trim without taking all the glass out, but I haven't tried that. It would seem that the triangle window would be in the way on attempting to remove and reinstall the lower trim. If you are wanting to remove all the trim around the window (probably because the black coating is peeling off or painting the door), definitely remove all the glass.

    Are you talking about the lower silver metal trim in the photo (yours might be black)?

    Replacing idler pulley

    Sometimes I had to remove the rear bolts completely to allow the pump to move that little bit more.

    Pilar/Dome light

    Model, year-ish? That way I could look around the junkyard.

    Water pump

    I have replaced mine twice over the years. Just got what AutoZone had. Now makes me think, it was about every 10 years.....I'm going to be due soon.

    Chrysler Humvee Proposal 1981

    I would buy that.

    door window guides

    Yes - To clean it off well since the black coating wraps around the edges. Sorry - no photos. But if you can envision how the seals around the door frame are held in place, it is the same concept. When you get to the point of removing the trim, stop and look for a moment. Start trying to work it up off near the ends, but go easy and slow. I retract my earlier statement....the bottom trim has to be removed first.

    Random high idle kills me!

    I experienced high idle on start up too. My issue was solved between cleaning the electrical connector for the coolant temperature sensor and replacing the ECU with a 1990 ECU from a junkyard Cherokee. I did both at the same time, so I'm not sure which one solved my issue. That said, I don't recommend that you run out and buy a new ECU. It is something to consider if you have another one laying around or can snag one at a junkyard (or as a last resort). I am sure you have done some of the things below a few times: Recommend you check, check, and re-check TPS adjustment. Clean the throttle body. Clean the idle air control valve and ports on the throttle body (and then clean some more). Remove and clean the idle air temperature sensor (the brass thing the screwdriver is pointing at in the photo below). Do it well. Clean every electrical connector you can think of (TPS, CPS, IAC, IAT, CTS, O2, MAP, ECU, C101....just to name some). Clean and improve grounds. I feel you. It's maddening.

    door window guides

    If you are referring the the silver trim around the window below....The trim originally had a black coating which was almost like a decal of some type. I cleaned mine with a heat gun and then sanded it with a 240 grit emery cloth (to finish removing the adhesive). I appears to be aluminum, so I left it stripped. I do intend to remove it and paint it black one day when I replace the door locks. To remove the trim from the door, you have to take all the glass out (having done it a few times, it's not that daunting), remove the inside and outside scraper seals (easy), and the window channel (easy). The trim is just wedged on around the door frame (like a pinch seal) and comes off with some gentle prying from the inside edge. Remove the lower trim first.

    Plastic under front bumper

    Straight-ish. It will curve some tying into the fender flares, plus the years of wind beating on it.

    Lap belts and more

    I agree with Minuit. Not sure why you would want to install a lap belt versus a three-point belt. As far as fixing goes....If it isn't working right, get a new one. Your life is worth a new belt.
  14. From the photos, the interior looks in pretty good shape. Can't see any cracks in the dash, headliner shell looks to be there. Pulling the carpet and washing it always makes things look better. If it was in my area, for that price, I would definitely give it a quick hard look.
