Yesterday was a success. With the firewall painted I reinstalled the brake master cylinder and a new clutch master cylinder. While painting things like this aren't going to get this jeep ready for the Rubicon trip..... they at least make me feel better about the jeep. Everything seems to go smoother when you take a little pride in your work. The paint was custom mixed and filled into aerosol cans by a local shop back when Steve first got the jeep. The cans are all dead and no longer under pressure. Using a rubber tipped blow nozzle I re charged a can and painted the firewall. I think when the cans lost pressure some of the solvents in the paint evaporated. The paint is glossy and feels hard but it literally wipes off with a little spray of brake parts cleaner. Some rattle can clear coat engine enamel should help with that issue. Definitely not fancy or restoration label worthy....... but looks way better than the pictures from Saturday! Next up, Power Steering Mounting A couple weeks ago a 69 Buick Skylark with 350 popped up on FB marketplace. First under hood photo showed this power steering bracket standing proudly on the engine. The seller even removed it and cleaned it for me! While the previous "mid mount" power steering bracket did work just fine, this setup is just nicer, gets the pump out of the engine/exhaust heat and makes it easier to work. This upgrade is part of the pre-rubicon trip improvement list.
