Gotta finish my knuckle rebuild today, grease the u-joints and TRE's, put the hard doors back on for the trip to the campsite, and wash off the crud. Already topped off all the fluids.
 
Ditto on the fuel sock filter.

Tidied up my shiny new exhaust. :)

Wipe the pollen off the instrument panel so I can see my speedo, tach, and fuel guage. ;)

Done..... now time for a nice 18 year old scotch to top it off.
 
Not exactly PM...but...

Well, I built plates and welded them to the roll cage to accept the propane tank brackets on the fender wells. I knocked out the Harlan CanOpner dents and resprayed the rear quarters, hacked up my dash to fit my ARB switches and now matching winch control switches, then resprayed. . Took time to blend in the radio compartment I had built in the past so it looks a little less ghetto. And, she had her first bath in a couple of years :)

See you all at the beach!!!

Doh!! Did something wrong with the fuel pump and my gas gauge is dead.

Had to take it back out and reinstall it. Works fine now.
 
in the last couple weeks I have replaced the vlave cover gasket, the PHH and about 10 other peices of hose. I still have to find a heavy duty flasher relay and then I should be all set. See you on the OBX.
