Yesterday I Broke my half door interior door handle strap closing the door. I took it off and the end of the metal strap broke where the screw goes through.So I got to looking at it and seen the other side was getting bad as well. So I thought... what's an easy fix? Looked on the workbench and seen this...

So I grabbed some pliers and pulled the broken metal piece out of the handle, sprayed a little WD40 in there and shoved the metal strapping through. It fit tight but perfectly and with the numerous holes in the strapping no drilling required.

So for those with a broken door handle strap, no need to go to the junkyard to find a new one.

Removed my fender flares to start adding the TJ flares sometime this week. Also took out my T-Case lowering pucks. Hopefully I won't have any vibrations.

Hey look at it on the bright side. Makes cleaning up that mud easier, it doesn't get on your interior.

I used rivet nuts or nutserts...depends on what you call them. I am going to machine some new window crank handles soon the aftermarket roll cage interferes with the handle knob...lol In the beginning of spring or summer I am pulling dash out an doing aluminum flat dash to match the door panels. The bend can be done on a roller or cut door apart and weld a flat piece in. My drivers door had tree rash so thats what I did.

I second this! I used to think my Sebring doors were hard to work in! What paddles did you use to replace the shitty levers?

Hay I am going to do the same myself with the dash and the panel on the floor around the shifter and do the same with the fender undecided yet but my plan is to make everything rust free. Where did you find the rivet nuts I use a set for my soft top reinforcing kit but have no luck looking for more if those and they would be perfect.

I picked the tool with multiple sizes and an assortment of rivet nuts out of a tool supply place online called McMasters. They have all kinds of stuff including materials like metal, plastic etc. To make the parts out of.

I replaced my passenger fender with a scrap yard one that had no rust, ground all the rust off of my frame as best I could and painted it with chassis savor. It's not a permanent fix, but it will get me threw the winter and next summer I can do a more thorough job of it.

Long overdue repair

10 years ago, my brake vacuum booster developed a vacuum leak. I spent $150 on a rebuilt one from Car Quest. When I took it home, the vacuum leak on the original one, stopped leaking and was working perfectly. SO, I put the rebuilt one on the shelf, thinking it would be only days before it started leaking again. Only last week did it start leaking again. It took me about 2 hours to completely replace the unit. The brakes are working great again.

The story gets better when I boxed up the old one and grabbed the 10 year old receipt that had a core charge of $48 and handed it to the man behind the Car Quest counter. He started looking at the receipt and I could see his smile turning into a frown. He said, "HOW OLD IS THIS?" I told him 10 years! I guarantee you, if I had not put the receipt in the box with the booster, I would have NOT received my core charge back. AND, If I had not gone back to the same man that sold it to me 10 years earlier, who was a good friend of mine, I wold not have gotten it back. I think, 10 Years is the worlds record for getting a core charge back. Thanks Mark.
