Been a while. I went to Lowe's and purchased a few rolls of adhesive weather seal. I used it around the door frames and it is actually quieter and holds heat better.

They do sell the classic look too. Looks exactly like the stock sealed beam but with the projector in the middle.

Spell out some acronyms...I get the PS = power steering. What are the others?

TJ Rear Brakes figured out among others.

Finally finished installing new radiator. While into that project having had so many E-fan controllers fail wired up an over ride switch. Kinda a pain due to the particular controller.
The one I'm currently using uses a resistance probe shoved into the fins, there is a potentiometer to adjust setpoint which in turn triggers a 4 pin relay. I ended up using an additional 5 pin relay, it's normal off position sends power to the "automatic" fan controller. In the even that one fails, I flip the switch sending power around the automatic controller directly to fan.

On to the brakes- ever since I put new shoes on the rear it seemed as if I had no rear brakes. Much reading and research and about 6 months later I figured it out. My son pumped and held the pedal and I "bled" the front. Somehow doing this must have shifted the spool in the combination valve. Now I've got rear brakes, the difference was immediately noticeable.

Lol thanks. It's just a mini glass mount phone holder. It has the automotive 3m double sticky and the small tab can be stuck on anything. Holds real well too. Can't war to start recording some of the climbs.

That's good. Tj mirrors aren't the greatest. I have spot mirrors that do pretty well
