What did you use for touch up?

Maybe the fender had scratches/surface rust on the flat portion and they cleaned and repainted?

I used the Mopar touch up paint in the little applicator, and I'm gonna put the Mopar clear coat on tomorrow.

I'm thinking that's what it was, it's too straight to have had an serious damage done to it. I don't think it was repainted too well though because there is more scratches up on the fender than anywhere else.

Shop visits. Cussing while lying under it. Maybe an engine swap. And the discovery of rust. Either way, it's gonna be interesting

Not sure name brand exactly. It's Cree led bulbs though. For off amazon for $105. Just installed LEDs on the windshield. Amazon. $45 for the pair

Check out my build. It's called my buildup from stock...

I don't even need headlights even more. They are crazy bright.

Finally, replaced my front balljoints! Did one side last Sunday (never done it before) and it took 4 hours. Did the left side today and only 3 hours start to finish with all tools put away and area cleaned up! Whew! Another job done. Wasn't hard except getting the old joints out, man were they tight! Time for some 4 wheelin now. Just need somewhere new to go.

Ah well trip to the west coast beach next month, that will have to do.
Damn, Petrol has gone up in price here again!!!! That's .17cents per litre in the last two months! Grrrrr!

I think $400 retail, but I got the hookup from a post here and got them much cheaper w free shipping and no sales tax.. .

I was going to go w new headlight bulbs w all the stuff and it wasn't that much more for these and they are just so much better. IMHO

Found out the front driveshaft I had in shed is not complete, the yoke that attaches to axle is smaller than the shaft I had. My 4wd linkage will not work so I am forced to get a cable set up. The bushings in my lower and upper rear control arms need replaced. Lastly the new tool box I bought last week is to small.

Found some more stuff to sell in addition to the full doors and hard top, like door surrounds, windshield header bar and tailgate bar.


Also got stuff ready for my push button start and airbag switch that will be used as kill switch. Write up to follow.
