    Here we go.

    Ripped out the driver seat. Literally ripped it out seems I need to order one more piece of floor pan.

    Drilled a bunch of spot welds.
    Flushed the coolant and changed the belt.

    Project Blue Jeep

    Side project:

    Found a a set of beat up doors. Shouldíve walked away the price wasnít amazing and I donít need another project. But they were blue, and Iím really not a fan of half doors even with the hard uppers. Just not my style.

    IMG_4978.JPG

    They had been ďrepairedĒ on the door latch and both had wrong size screw with threads that didnít hold the latch in place. Itís really one of those things they make you wonder how it was damaged to begin with as itís just not something that breaks unless you try to break it, itís not like they were in an accident or something like that would make sense. One didnít have the linkages hooked up. Etc. and the driver panel has a crack.

    So today I fixed the linkage and reinstalled the door handle. Installed the correct sized bolts so the latch doesnít fall the fuck out. I hung the passenger door and got it relatively aligned which took me about an hour and a half. Itís not perfect and Iíll likely adjust it better when I have a second set of hands. Swapped the mirror over.

    Waiting on some parts to do the driver door. Paint ordered for the door cards.

    I'm sure if you don't want those half doors some one will pay top dollar for them.

    Thanks! Yeah theyíre coming along. I understand how theyíre more convenient for popping off the upper and throwing them in the back to drive around and toss them back on quick when it rains. But Iím used to driving naked all summer anyways, and my biggest complaint is that itís just the wrong height for my left arm. Its like 6-8Ē shorter than a full door and isnít comfortable for my lazy leaned over style of driving.

    Hope so. Theyíre in pretty good shape for 10 years old. Started snowing today so I know the aftermarket hard uppers will sell quick at least. Once I get the parts in to fix the handle on driver side I can list them locally, would like them out of my way for sure.

    Hmm.
    Well that didnít work like I thought it would.

    For some reason the epoxy didnít fully harden, which the package said sandable in 30 minutes and I left over night.
    Guess Iíll try it again, maybe there wasnít enough of the hardener in the jb weld? It was the syringe type so I assumed it would be correct.

    Good idea with the can. The epoxy didnít hold?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
