  1. Didn’t like seeing the corrosion on that metal ring inside the fan, bead blasted it, polished up to 3000 grit and then gold plated it, also I powder coated the fan clutch in a metallic blue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Those clips usually break off on one side and the rubber falls out, or is torn out. If you got some gasket sealer around I think even the high temp stuff would work on holding onto the rubber, just an idea i’m going to attempt on mine since interior and especially exterior rubber trim costs almost as much as what most people pay for entire vehicle.

  4. Love the angles you got of pic 4 and 5 looks like a fun time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just curious what is the weight on one of those legos, they look heavy, probally never heard of one cracking before Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Gold Plated the grill emblem, The 25 year old black paint is all chipped off, will probally tape off the gold and give it a nice deep black. I think I make gold plate the cylinder locks, and was thinking of the the steel part of the rear lift gate piston rams things as well, maybe even the seat belt buckles and any other metal I haven’t managed to powder coat yet, like my brake line connections, trying not to get carried away and make the Pathy to “ricer” looking haha may be too late Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Tore off all the old plastic conduit split loom from the main engine harness, depinned all the connectors polished up the tips and put some di-lectric grease on, used 3/8” and 1/2 “ braided loom. here’s a before and after Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. was unable to replace my backing plates so I bead blasted them as best I could and threw on some gloss black powdercoat I also did the rear axle hubs, taping off carefully where the bearing and seals sit, just getting them pressed in and mounting them when I get the new seals and bearings.

  12. Finally got my diff back from the shop all new bearings and races, also the speed sleeve was worn. I installed most of it today just working on my old backing plates, since they are impossible to find, plus I can never justify the shipping. Lots of patience and looking back in my photos. I also re loomed the speedo cable with some braided stuff. Next project is doing the braided loom to the entire engine harness, lots of connections and fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. finally got the axle coated, I marred up the flange when I was separating the diff, polished it up with some memory cloth still waiting to have the new bearings and races installed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Best option is to get it bead blasted and have it powdercoated, I went with a semi gloss sandtex black powder, It’s similar to rock guard with texture in it, last longer and look better than spray can paint Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
