You know you won't find it till you buy a new one...
wonder if the hood was open when you were messing with the hold-down - so maybe its in the engine bay under the hood. I like to put stuff on top of the grill right in front of the radiator under the hood.
I'm glad i'm not the only one that loses things in plain sight
Fabbed brackets for steering shaft and to convert clutch hard line to hose. Then I tackled some brake line . I bought a 3/16 kit from Summit and have to say I'm ruined. Never touch steel line again. The t bracket and rear cover needed a quick flap disc tuneup to mate up cleanly.
Ah yeh, that came out brilliant. Looks fantastic.
Did a few small things today. First, did an oil change. Then put in a new accelerator pump in the Rochester 2G ( the one I replaced was not giving a good solid spray to each barrel anymore ) and last changed the oil in the oil bath filter. Ready for some sunny weather, it’s pouring out now.
Farm Jeep Willy earning his keep towing a tractor to my garage so I could change a hydraulic line for a customer.
I know I need to post a pic but it won't go from my IPhone. Anyhow, the Jeep got flush mounted tail lights and reverse lights cut into the tub(shudder) and bumper. I think I shed a tear when I pushed the 4 1/2 inch hole saw against the Aqualu aluminum. I primed and painted the edges before installing.
I feel your pain! Every time I drill a hole i cry a little.
Replaced the unsightly and ill-fitting factory release handle for the swing away spare tire carrier with a more simplistic and aesthetically pleasing design. It’s an old shock absorber shaft threaded to fit a shift knob I had laying around.
That was a bold move.
I waffled back and forth a bunch before I committed. I'm glad now, but it hurt my soul to cut into the tub.
I think that looks nice and clean, had to be painful but to me seems well worth it, nice job!
That looks great.
I used the Spencer trailer and hauled leaves for the third weekend. It was alot of work but fun at the same time using the jeep.
I got my new fancy Fog light bar built.
the clamps started out here

Mark - that looks great. What fog lights are you running there?
