Def do the rear main while you have the pan out... Cheap and have to drop the pan to get to it- and likely to leak one day if its not now

In hindsight I see I sound like captain obvious there... but didn’t see you mention it, and who knows who references it down the line... google pulls some crazy stuff out of the air some times... so for the next guy

I actually wasn't going to do it. For Rcp shake I figured I better do it right. I dont want to get kicked out of the club

So I cleaned and prepped sprayed the pan Miller welder blue. Then cleared it today. Uggggh guess I'll do it over.

Clear is eating it off

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

what clear did you use?

all is not lost if you let it fully cure and sand down the high spots, or you could hit it with another color from an angle, then sand it to get some neat two tone look.

Cheap stuff. Rustoleum or something maybe the blue is krylon. I guess the dont go well together.
It does seem to be hardening now

Nice and purty.

That should show the oil leaks really well. (Knowing how Jeeps work)

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

So we spent some time fishing and soaking up some sun Ray's on the river and lake this weekend. Missing have the jeep to go on trips in, but man I gota say the pickup is nice. I've pulled welder and tools out of it. Just nice

This is the snake river in Idaho one of my favorite secret fishing spots. One of those places you hope the small ones get of before you get reeled in.

Did manage to get flywheel bolted on bolts cleaned and locktighted with red. I tourqed to 90 since I decided to reuse the old ones.

I'm debating on going out right now and bolting clutch on and stuffing tranny. Kinda thinking i might bolt tcase to tranny and stuff them together. The tcase shift lever pivot point bracket bolt is a pain to get to while in there.


There may be random photo of magnaflow xl muffler in here. More on that later maybe
