Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

More baby steps! I work 5 days a week so my weekends tend to fill up quick, lol. Small updates but lots of pics! 20190420_192542.jpg Battery was dead. It was also kind of old. The connectors on my wires looked fossilized. 20190428_120415.jpg Here are the old and new side by side 20190428_123429.jpg ...

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

Looks like you're making some good progress! Cant wait to see the transformation when you start to lay down paint and such! Heck yeah! That's the next big step. Unfortunately now it's just down to time/money. Buying the paint and buying the tires are the last MAJOR expenses I have in front of me. I...

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

Finally had a sunny weekend! I tackled a bunch of really small stuff. 20190420_175553.jpg First and foremost, I finally got the rusty seat belt screw to come loose. I combined multiple methods I've read about with what some folks have suggested. I started by saturating the top side and underside wit...

I plan on reaching out for quotes later this week. I think I'll go this route as well, would make for a nice, easy painting process.

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

Those are some clean looking rims! Do you plan on sand blasting them or just sanding them down yourself? I totally forgot to answer this! However, I'm not really sure yet. It depends on how much sand blasting costs. I'm leaning towards sand blasting since, like you mentioned, these wheels are in RE...

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

Does your roommate know he is supporting your strange Jurassic Park addiction? Just kidding ;) Those are some clean looking rims! Do you plan on sand blasting them or just sanding them down yourself? I heard that as long as you do your regular maintenance, these Inline 6's will last forever! I orig...

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

Small victories! My old soft top had a small tear in it so it leaked at the corner when it rained. So thats why my JP18 is a garage queen for now. Im fortunate that I have a townhome with a 1 car garage I can store it in. After I buy a whip antenna, rear fogs, and ramsey winch, i'll get around to b...

Re: JP22 Build Thread - Willamette Valley Oregon

It has rained every single day this week... But despite the gross weather, I have had a minor success! 20190406_125000.jpg I finally have a back window! It took a good 30 minutes of loosening and tightening the right parts of the top, but I got there eventually. The non-locking #10 vislon slider fit...
