Trip cancelled tomorrow for SL. Not risking the storms.. Hate to drive that far and unload just to reload and drive back to Conway to unload in the rain.. Sucks.

Well, I think I figured out why my front passenger flare didn't stick well in one spot. After I pulled it off I found the inner mounting brackets I installed were slightly out of whack which caused the flare to not fit to the body correctly.

This is when we were screwing w/ those crappy bolts so I guess I overlooked it. No biggie. I have replacement rubber gasket and new bolts so now I just have to stick it back on.

It was kinda informative to have to pull a flare off. I now know that the piece that sticks to the body is pretty damn solid. I had to pull pretty damn hard to get the adhesive to let go.

Gotta love quality! Glad ya got it handled.

David informed me that Jenn's jeep, Lucy, has low compression on cylinder 1 after they borrowed the compression tester..The plug looks oil washed so I imagine they will need a new engine soon. That just blows! So...she'll have a new ride when this is all over. still some checking to do, but I imagine it's bad news..

Hate that we didn't go
Jeepin today, but didn't know storms would hit late.

Finally sold enough parts. Looking to begin the paint job soon. Will appreciate any help offered. Seems as though Jenn and David have offered one of their bays to do so. The sooner the better but I'll be gone next weekend. Anyone up for sanding?

Good grief. Sounds like Lucy's been a lot of trouble. Yuck. Sorry to hear about the engine.

Reminder to all that we have adult beverage night this Friday. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we can hit the deck.

And we have an SL run set for Sunday.

PM me if you're in for one or both events Thanks.

I'm up for it, need to learn. I'll offer my sanding assistance, I have an air sander, if that helps?

Call City Motor Supply in Dallas TX. Cheapest place you will find. I have used them before and they are picking up my engine this week to rebuild. They didnt have one in stock so they are rebuilding mine. I have a 4 banger though.

Here is why I have not been on here much:

Our biggest run has been around 8-10 but we've only been running together since early this year.

We've been talking about a possible camping trip this summer one weekend and we could add mountain home to the list of possible spots.

Sway disco kit will be in tomorrow and I'm gonna go ahead and replace my brake pads so hopefully I won't have to deal with anymore squealing at SL (at least not from the brakes). LOL

Bad new Ladies and Gents.... I totally forgot about a convention I'm having to attend this weekend (Associated Builders & Contractors - Excellence In Construction Banquet)... I won't be able to make it to Cajun Night Friday as I have to be at the Travelers game for a "business" social event. Then Saturday, I have several meetings and a banquet that I have to attend. SUCKS TO BE ME.
