Starting a build/maintenance log for my 40, a daily driver that can be a garage queen from time to time.

History: I found her two years ago (2009) with 5 years expired Montana tags. This year (2011) she turned 30. Stock, factory power steering, factory Air conditioner.
09/2009~ -Gas tank leak fix: Had a leak, PO fixed it with leak stopper, took the gas tank off, had it leak fixed by my radiator guy. removal and reinstall of gas tank was a big PITA.
09/2009~ -New tires
10/2009~ -Carb rebuild: Did not idle, later found out the issue was with idle solenoid. :eek:
05/2010~ -Roof off, bikini top!
03/2011 - Found a used tiger top for $200.
05/2001 - Full tuneup, OEM parts.
06/2011 - New OEM clutch master and slave cylinder.
06/2011 - New battery

Upcoming projects: I don't plan to wheel it, maybe my son will when gets old enough to drive it. I will keep it stock, keep the top off, enjoy driving it as much as possible.
So upcoming projects... Replace driver side tub, Knuckle rebuild, tailgate...

Love those wheels, have a set in my back garage.

She is a looker, although she would really rock with a factory style soft top.
