Dude33, when you put on the sealer, is it just a regular primer type (like a rattle can) or would it be smarter to use a spray gun and a specific product..?
I've got the gun, but it would be easier in a rattle can. I'm doin all my work in a storage unit... THANX..!!!

Beach-Bum... I DIG YOUR JEEP..! Very cool man..!

After the lift I found she needed ball joints and gave her a new steering stabilizer as well. I think she rides better than the wife's 02 mini van. Now she will steer better too...

Master Cylinder clutch

I lost clutch pressure the other day and ended up replacing the master Cylinder for the clutch. Works great now.

Then I have had a issue with the brake light on my dash staying on all the time after I replaced the entire brake sytem including brake booster. I had to end up resetting the sensor. Works again like new.

Little by little she is coming together.
