    Me . . .

    -Continue with the mystery of the temp gauge. :confused:

    -Install brand new radiator hoses and clamps. :)

    -New connectors and/or wires going to ignition switch. (PO had a field day with butt splices.) :mad:

    -Mount a cup holder on the front of my behind-the-seat Con Ferr storage box. :cool:

    -Clean up that ugly seam under the hood. :rolleyes:

    -Hug my FJ-40 because I've been completely ignoring it for three months. :eek:

    Pull tranny and t-case, continue cleaning out frame, and decide if I really want to pull the body off. Also buy a canopy from Costco if they still have them in stock.

    It's a 25 in body, frame, and springs only.

    Eric, How did you make out with the frame cleaning? I did my last one with a pressure washer, made a right angle doodad I could sneak in the openings. It was messy as hell (wear full face protection) but worked darn good.

    John, if the oil on that third member didn't burst into flames in the heat, I could probably use it. :D

    I welded up my shock mounts for Krusty, not as pretty as Mike's work, but they'll hold up.

    Well, I did jack on the 25 this weekend. But I did buy a canopy from Costco to cover the rig while I'm working on it. It's pretty sweet. Anything I can do to keep the neighbors happy ;).

    Jim, I'm using a narrow blade putty knife to scrape the crusty dirt/grease out. I could use a pressure washer.

    I used to drag motorless Cruisers to the spray'm yerself car washes to clean inside the framerails. Towing the Cruiser on a dolly helps tilt the Cruiser back so most of the crap flushes out the back of the frame while you're washing it...

    HTH,

    Explain 5 of the soft top loops on the body. Maybe a pic would help too.
