    Aluminum radiator replacement

    I need a new radiator, the old owner had tore off the mounting brackets and it was only set into the cradle resting on the bottom tank! I looked at champion cool. I've used their stuff before and I was very happy with the quality built in the US, 100% aluminum (no plastic tanks), TIG welded...

    What holds the radiator in place?

    I have the bottom felt and the bushing from the battery tray. What I don't have is anything that holds the radiator into the cradle. It appears my side brackets on my radiator are no longer there. Is there any kind of rubber that goes on the bottom of the radiator or is it just those brackets...

    What holds the radiator in place?

    I'm working on my BJ42. I started to notice there is nothing holding the radiator into place inside the cradle because the two hoses? It's just put into the metal cradle with no bottom bushings, top tie downs or anything from the side. What is supposed to hold it in place and what is supposed...

    Different type of front bench seat

    Looking at yours I guess that's pretty much how mine is. I just suprised by the big gap between the two seats......... Now I have to figure out if I want to put the bench I have on the passenger side and passenger has no headrest, put it on the drivers side potentially crowding the driver, or...

    Thinking about the unthinkable and painting my entire bj42 with bedliner

    I'm planning to call tamco tomorrow and figure out a plan. It sounds like their "monocoat" is basically like a UV resistant version of POR15. Their HP5311 looks pretty good as it's an epoxy primer and their say it's a very high build similar to polyester primer. I will have to figure out...

    Thinking about the unthinkable and painting my entire bj42 with bedliner

    It sounds a little silly and I don't think it's dramatic. But the wind rolling over the smooth surface of a car can make a big difference. It's enough for racers to notice the difference between a dirty and clean car. I'm not sure anybody ever put a bj42 and a racer in the same sentence but...

    Different type of front bench seat

    It has to be the left hand side because where the tilt lever and headrest is. I didn't think of it coming from a RHD though. Plus I don't think it's long enough to pair with a regular bucket seat because there would be a big gap between a bucket seat and this one. The other match for this...

    The finer points of a flipped 3b manifold for a turbo

    So after about 8 hours of reading threads on turbos I've decided to post a question specifically about flipping the 3b manifold. Most people have touched on the concept of flipping the stock manifold. It seems most people opt for the 13b manifold instead. But as the old saying goes...

    Different type of front bench seat

    I picked up a set of long style rear jump seats for my 81 bj42. They are in great shape, got a good deal, and prefer them over the one single rear jumpseat. As part of the deal it also came with one side of a front bench seat. I wasn't really looking for a front bench as my buckets are in...

    A flared out quarter panel

    So this is kind of odd. I bought a bj42 project. It's in pretty good shape, pretty low rust and it was the right price. It wasn't until I got it home I notice the quarter panels a little over halfway down to the wheel wells are flared outward. It's barely noticeable but there is two...

    Thinking about the unthinkable and painting my entire bj42 with bedliner

    Eventually I talked myself out of this. Thanks in large part to the suggestion for Tamco paints. It looks like they might have something that will work pretty well and get rave reviews. I will need to do more prep work than I would with bedliner but at least it will look good. Another thing...

    Thinking about the unthinkable and painting my entire bj42 with bedliner

    Yes I used to be a person that would make fun of anybody even considering it. I called it a "high school paint job" because at some point every high school kid thinks it's a good idea. And it is for 2 years until the UV fades it, dirt gets in bedded, and the rubber in the actually paint flakes...

    MUDShip  Does anybody want me to drive something from LA to Portland on 8/15

    I'm flew down to LA and renting a car to drive back to Portland. Kind of a long shot with short notice but I thought I'd try anyway and might be a win win for me to save on a one way rental car and someone to save on getting a vehicle shipped. I'm completely trustworthy and capble of some...

    Wanted  h41 transmission for 81 bj42

    I posted a few months ago and got several replies but most are too far away and by the time I could ship it, it makes it cost prohibitive. Anybody in Oregon, washington, or california with one of these laying around?

    mistmatched top and body.

    I see what you are saying now. I thought you were talking about the opening being squared............... So the conclusion I'm getting at from those that replied is the mismatched top and tub are due to the DIY job on the tub? This is not a case of a certain year of hard top that doesn't match...

    mistmatched top and body.

    It is square and the other side is off the exact same amount. Lots of repairs on the rest of the tub. Overall the repair jobs are pretty decent. I wouldn't say a pro did it but it's better than your average high school project. He got the part by the passenger door right. Just this section...
