Cool Quieted down the tap, tap, tap

Felt a bit embarrassed in my ‘87 Grand Wagoneer with the annoying sound of exhaust manifold leaks! Took some time out of my lazy 4 July afternoon and looked closely at the drivers side manifold and found all of the bolts to be in need of tightening! Cinched them all up and definitely better. Need to install some remflex gaskets I happen to have sitting around. At least it is mo betta for now.

I drove mine...it hasn't been getting much road time this summer. After driving other stuff I'd somehow forgotten how nice this one is...quiet, plenty of power, a feeling like you can go anywhere, and just a very solid all around driver. These Waggys are awesome Oh, and it was even better because with the new bushings and the steering adjusted, it drives like a normal car AND the steering wheel is straight when you're driving in a straight line...well close enough to straight now. It's not pointed 80 degrees to the left anymore

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend! Well, those in the US...I don't suppose people outside the US states and territories were celebrating too much. But Canada got their day on the 1st.

I dug in the shop trying to find parts I have had stored. Realized the majority is buried under 3 years worth of stuff, LOL! Will have to wait for kids to claim their property and clean shop up to get to parts.

Worked some more on the 73 j4000 roof section and welded up some small pin holes and gaps on the brow.
It's ready now to drop it off at the sand blaster.

I'm really hoping that there are not to much extra holes appear when it's blasted and in welding primer.

Thought about working on it a lot, but weather still too hot, and Monsoon season here with increased humidity levels we are not accustomed to! Not safe to be out in it too long!

In my dreams.....I traveled the country, stopping by to meet other FSJ members, and we had a good time talking about our trucks and what it took to get them where they are

Thinking about and mesmerising is also a good thing when it becomes your Jeep project!

I cleaned the inside of the new painted doors from dust and brushed them with owatrol in all nooks and crannies and some areas inside of the doors that didn't got good coverage with paint to make them durable as possible.

Also the new 13' flywheel for the 12 valve Cummins with nv4500 needed some more work on the hole for input shaft and pilot bushing ,so had that dropped off at the shop after taking measurements for dept.
The new painted frame and fresh drive train is coming together nicely!
