So here's what I have been up to the last couple days :
I picked up some new (to me) mirrors for 10 bucks a piece, they were wired for electric mirrors but i just didn't hook them up! Fits like a glove ! :thumbsup:
I also got a new windshield put in for a pretty good deal, surprisingly there wasn't any holes in the frame, the installers ground off the surface rust, and sealed it up!
I also replaced the Coolant overflow tank, as it had a nasty crack in it
Next to fix was the Valve cover gasket, as it left all that sludge on my transmission.. Unfortunately there was not even a gasket, just orange silicon someone had put in ! So I had to do a half hour to 45 minutes worth of scraping to get all the orange residue off, in order for my new Fel-Pro Gasket to seal up properly.
Now for the new Gasket!
Now the leak seems to be fixed! (Yes I put the hoses back on the Valve cover )
Next on the to-do list was to fix the Tail light blinker wiring... My problem was when I turned on my right blinker, I got back feed into my left tail light, making it appear as if my flashers were on. However, the left tail light was quite a bit dimmer. So I pulled the left tail light to see if the ground was connected properly, and it was. Pulled the right light, and discovered a shorted out bulb! While pulling the tail lights, I also discovered some not so proper wiring connecters... so that needed to be fixed too :laughin: Once I connected the wires using some heat shrink butt connecters, and replaced the bulb, they worked great !
This was covered up with some duct tape..........
And lastly.. this isn't a mechanical fix, but a cool addition nonetheless. I picked up a Jeep Keychain off Ebay with the old AMC logo! Thought it would make for a nice picture
