Owen_TJ I got a chisel out and chipped all the rust i could off my frame...then i got a wire wheel out and wire wheeled what i could with a drill...then i got some rust fix and sprayed the whole frame. Currently letting it dry and will then go out and paint it...then undercoat it.

oh, i also adjusted the pinion angle after doing my tummy tuck

Daffy TJ NZ I plasti-dipped my front bumper on the weekend...the steel was starting to look its age a bit....seems to look the part. Tonight's job is fixing the cig lighter and working out how to mount and install a "OOOGAH" klaxon Horn.

Roll on the better weather... Im hanging out to go topless

I started to climb a telephone pole at my school with my teacher trying to get measurements for my bumper! Haha, didn't even mean to but my front tires lifted with my custom built bumper! Now how exactly I can't tell you that haha, that's confidential!

Awesome. Thanks alot. Beautiful Jeep, BTW!

Also added an ARB AIR UP kit to my compressor, now I don't have to wait till I get back to town after airing down on the trails!

AVtj03 Replaced clutch slave cylinder. Fairly easy. The only pains where: 1. fitting was seized to slave; 2. I should have left break-away plastic on all the way to the install on the new slave cylinder (not just after bench bleeding). live and learn.
