Took all of the the old faded peeling woodgrain off. Didn't take as long as I thought. Just the right amount to heat gun and four plastic scrapers.

Pick-a-part on Sun morning and got misc parts for the Super, the J2000, and '79, then replaced rear brake shoes and rotated tires on J10 in the afternoon.

So, now I have rebuilt the carb, cleaned up the engine some, replaced a belt, and am still needing to fix the exhaust leak. I started the paint this weekend by sanding and shooting the tan for the roof. (it was too hot outside to do much more than that)

She runs great, even did a death run test in stop and go traffic on I-5 through downtown Seattle in 90+ weather. She ran well, and took the heat without an issue.

Now the Kaiser is finally parked at my house so I can work on it whenever I like, instead of an hour away at my girlfriend's place.

Finished the front axle. New seals and bearings. Took it to a local Threshing show and got into the parade. Their was a long incline that worked out great. In 4WD low and first gear, I was abel to let it idle up hill. With all the other tractors thumpin and being the first vehicle behind the steam traction engines, you could'nt hear in running. A lot of thumbs up and suprised looks on peoples faces after the anouncers let them know it is a 1963. At the auto shows I hear "Nice Jeep". At the threshing shows I hear so many Jeep stories, it's a very fun time. This years best stories came from a guy that worked for Kaiser Jeep during the 1960's as a sales rep for the upper midwest states.

I ran my baby straight into a freak May snow storm in the WA. Cascades...dumped 4 inches and my sweety 77 told me not to worry, she will get me home...So onward we went deep into the Cascades to explore and camp...No worries...and never slipped once... I love my big girl with all my heart....

I put a second set of speakers in my truck. Fabbed up (more like hacked up) some aluminum brackets for 4" speakers behind the seats. They're not too visible so I didn't really care if they look good or not. They work.

I also got most of the parts I'm going to need for my front brake job. The rotors are warped so rather than trying to press apart 26 year old rotors/hubs, I went ahead and bought new rotors, hubs and studs. And as long as I was replacing parts, I bought all new bearings and the Warn premium lockout hubs are on the way. But while I'm in there, I figured I'd swap out the axle shaft u-joints too so a set of spicer joints are also on the way.

Oh, and I got brake pads too...

Installed a Sun Pro II Mini Tach on the shift column. To be clever, I tapped into the wire going to the coil at the ECU to avoid running a wire all the way to the coil. But the stupid POS tach stops at 2200, even though the engine rpms keeps going.

Removed the snorkel inner door vacuum motor and screwed the inner door in open position with a sheet metal screw though a rivot hole that the vacuum motor used to use.

Hooked up the EGR.

Tuned/adjusted so it purrs at hot idle and runs nicely. And now it runs like crappola at cold idle. Can't friggin win!

Oh, and finally got a K&N air filter.

I've got one of those with a wire going all the way to the coil and it works great. Try moving it closer and see if that helps.

I realized I wasn't paying attention when hooking up my trailer wiring harness and accidentally wired it to my left-rear speaker. Installation guide said hook it to a brown wire, I found a brown wire and hooked it up. My stereo didn't like that too much. But its fixed now.

Got tantalizingly close to getting the tailgate open on my 86. The motor tested ok, just need to straighten out the jamming track guide, clean out the bottom of the gate, and force it open to sort out the latches. I'll have a functional wagon yet!
In other news, I looked at my 67 and just got angry.

How long did it take you? Did you use any adhesive removers or just the heat gun?
