    I got a bunch of old jeep seats from a guy in Seattle on craigslist. None of the seats were in great condition, but they'll do in the meantime for my '68 project jeep. The hole mounting locations on the seat (marked by blue tape) didn't line up with the holes on my seat bracket.

    I cut two long rectangular pieces from 16g and folded an edge over to make them rigid. I drilled matching holes where'd they'd bolt to the seat and drilled holes where they'd bolt to the seat bracket.

    i ordered the disk brake conversion parts for my front axle on the '70 cj5. its got 10" drum brakes, but i went on a 60 mile drive yesterday, and it just felt unsafe. after doing the disk brake conversion on the wifes, im pretty comfortable in its vast improvement over stock brakes. i already also have a dual MC, so it wont take much more than an afternoon.
    (+2 weeks, knowing my recent history:study:)

    150 bucks for the brake parts is cheap enough to not keep me up at night.
    i have a NT dana 30 sitting around, but need to re-gear that to be 5.38. so, that was about 600 bucks for the ring and pinion and spider gears and such. for as much off roading i do, the geo conversion is fine for me. some day that dana 30 will get built.

    I am now up to date and Trail Rated with the best of them! It is actually serving a purpose covering a 1/2” hole in the dash made by someone in its past :D Sometimes it’s the little things.

    Existing PS Rigid Line.JPG Nice , Man . I wish I was there !
    Trying to solve this problem
    I've got a a Gm Hydroboost setup with all four wheels having 11" Bendix brake shoes & drums. Works great. No 'Face Planting' . This is what I'm working on today. Post Note : I've been having on hell of a time adjusting & tightening the PS belt, If you can believe it ! Somethi'n so basic.... yet its been giving me fits ! :banghead:
    I found why the 1984 GM adjusting bracket would not pivot . This hard line was holding it in place , by hitting the motor mount . I swear it was just like a 4th hold down nut ! This is for my Hydroboost Pressure line. Ive got to adapt a flex line to this then problem should be solved . Monday Morning , when the Local hose shop opens. :waiting:

    We're you letting it stand in the water to take a leak ? When you get old, sometimes it's necessary.

    HaHa No, took care of that in the bushes just after the pic. Not much of a turning place, so I got its feet wet.

    I "occasionally" forgot to cancel my non-canceling turn signal, so have been planning on adding a buzzer.

    Done today! --an Icstation DC 12V 85db Active Piezo Electronic Buzzer Beep Tone (that's what's written on the pkg.:D) Couldn't find them locally, so had to go Amazon for a package of 2 for $7.99 (with free shipping)

    Simply tinned/soldered the tips of the wires so they would be a little rigid and "plugged" it into my flasher--black to L and red to X. Then I covered the grill of the buzzer with two layers of bath-towel cut to size and taped it on the flasher body. Works great, plenty loud--heard above any road or engine noise.

    [​IMG]

    Below--you can see a slight edge of the purple bath-towel "volume-suppressing material" under the wrap-around tape.
