Thanks for the confirmation Pat!
The box coming today will be a big, ugly box that looks like my kindergartener put together (it was me). Inside will be the almost new WW gas tank and 2 smaller boxes, one with the speedo (recently reconditioned) and one with misc parts (mostly related to the gas tank).mdubgParticipantApril 11, 2019 at 9:31 amPost count: 291John JonesKeymasterApril 12, 2019 at 8:30 amPost count: 5888

Your box with the gas tank arrived.John JonesKeymasterApril 13, 2019 at 10:29 amPost count: 5888
I honestly feel better out moving around than sitting… and they told me from day one to walk as much as I can without excess pain… so… I’m easing into it. I worked on your truck for about 4 hours total yesterday and took a 2 hour nap after I ate some lunch… 😎 I’m not trying to push it… I don’t want to push it… I want to heal up and feel better!!!!! This week has sucked… 😎 I am hoping to get my head out of the clouds today… damnit… 😎 😎
I’m through every box and baggie now.. looked under every piece of green tape…. and a little blue… 😎
There’s a couple old pics from last week.. prepping vent window frames.. They have already been down all these roads before… but someone got the drill off one of those times… and so I wanted to weld up the extra ones… 😎 also all the glue and crap in the channels.
Front door strikers look WORN OUT! I think we will get some new one’s. Need some tail light screws and seals, yours look old and one is ripped… and misc other stuff!!! well make a good WW order on monday!!!!
The safari latches look pretty bad.. corroded a little, etc.. I thought about painting them black… Franz is going to check when he makes your big order and see if Black vent latches are back in stock. and then we can run correct black one’s in the doors and safari’s… will look nice… 😎 Your sliders and such were pretty beat up also… small investment for some nice bling. 😎 How about those awesome early DC/BD pop out latches!!! Your missing one brown knob…. Not sure they make those or not….. 😎 ???
Soaking in CRL!!!!
Safari pivots look like hell but just need cleaned up…. 😎 I need to get wipers and bases… I have not seen those yet…
Heater cable has already been twisted once…. I think we will replace so it works smoothly.. 😎
Got the glass out it’s all there! need to do wiper stuff, those two switches, headlights, fresh air flap, and paint a few small items!!!!!
Gates look great…. I should get a picture outside for you today….mdubgParticipantApril 13, 2019 at 4:28 pmPost count: 291
Lots of baggies and tape and labels. I tried to be as thorough as possible. That said, I know there are some things that might be missing or need to be replaced. I’m fully expecting a significant WW order.
I have the wiper arms here. They aren’t terrible, but I thought new ones are probably easiest. I’ll send them your direction, but if you think it’s just better to order new ones, go for it.
I’ve always liked black safari and wind wing latches, if they have those…awesome!
I decided to order some NOS glass Hella rear turn signal lenses from WCM. Those plastic deals always irritated me. They should be heading your way this week.
