    I am almost done with my Geo front brakes conversion. I kept floor pedals so, even when I installed a dual MC I have no power brakes. I have read in a couple of threads that the pads to use are the organic ones. Does anyone have a part number/supplier or a different idea? Thanks!

    I wish I could divert time and resources for that now! I need to finish the mechanics side of the CJ ASAP so I can slap the body on it and get this show on the road already! It has been 2 years in the making and still not even near something that resembles a vehicle! But it is written on the "I wish" tab!

    Alex, Your doing a great job considering what you started with. Most folks in western states would have considered your Jeep a parts source at best. We're in an old Jeep "desert"; there are very, very few around these parts, so we work with whats available, which isn't much. You amaze me with what you've done. You're bringing back an old Jeep to get it back on the road. You'll have touched just about every part, improving many to better than original.
    Unfortunately, it takes time!

    Most likely the pics will be on my thread 62 Cj5. The Miami Project. I take as many pics as I can remember at the moment if I don't get too busy or greasy and post them there. If you have any particular question, let me know and I can take additional pictures as you need!
