    do yourself a favor and dust a guide coat of black rattle can paint on the primer,it really helps with finish sanding.i hold the can back and move fast so its just like sticky dust when it lands on the primer.

    I'm still going through boxes of various parts trying to piece her back together again. Its kinda starting to look like a Jeep again. I still have one box of parts that is MIA. It's floating around somewhere, I just have to find it.

    You have one of those pesky floating boxes as well. I have a bunch of them, they hide in a little dark corner, then when I'm not looking , they move to a spot I have already looked for them in. Hate that. :D

    Like little Ralphie with the lug nuts, I watched the oil sender ferrule fly through the air. Bobbled by my sausage link fingers, a solid hour of crawling on the floor I came up with it. Swear i know how Gollum felt getting the precious back. Oil and temp sender 100% now. IMG_20180603_162409_603-1.jpg

    Finished the brake lines on my '68 project:

    I worried that with the frame flexing, the brake line might wear against the shock mount. I added some protection:

    Yes, it's a single circuit system. I bought a hanging pedal kit, master cylinder, and hydraulic clutch kit from Advanced Adapters and it comes with a single circuit brake system.

    Even though the molded letters on the MC say, "CLUTCH" and "BRAKE", the connections are reversed in this Advanced Adapters kit.

    This week I installed a new water pump on my 1966 CJ5, F4. Took about 5-6 hours to remove the old pump with fan, and then the prep, installation of the new pump, bolt on the fan, and refill the coolant through filter paper (re-using what I had drained) also took about 5 to 6 hours. All of this working alone (and losing about 1/2 hour to hunting for a dropped bolt). Only did a short test run. Pump and hose connections seem to be solid. Actually, first few miles out, I overheated because I left the cap loose to burp out the trapped air. That left too little coolant in the system and steam blasted out from under the hood. Freaked me out. Never had that happen before. Luckily I carried some water with me to cool matters down until I got home to add 50:50 water/antifreeze to proper level (about an inch below the bottom of fill spout, cold). I think that I can now safely say that the system is burped of trapped air. Now using a 7 psi cap to replace the 14 psi cap that I had long been using.

    Here are some pics of the final product
