How does a "brain fart" happen?
A couple of months ago, summer was coming, and I had debated on buying a new 4-wheeler. While on my way home one Sunday, I passed a Jeep for sale. It looked a little rough around the edges, and I thought with a "little love" it could be alot of fun. It had these big massive tires on it, and a "lift kit", and I was told it had a real good motor in it..it just needed a clutch. So, I did what I was suppose to do, and took an objective opinion to look at it with me. (Granted it was dark). But, I got a "thumbs up".
First thing I did was go to a body shop, and got an estimate on the paint job and body work. Cheap enough, of course, there is no body to it, really.
Clutch went in ok..and so did the U-Joints..the hubs, rotors, and new brake lines. Took a while to get the new "dip stick". (the old one was broke off). The leaks in the power steering pump and the rear end get fixed tommorrow, the new "flow masters" go on today, the busted shocks and the steering suspension bar..well, hey, you gotta get that fixed, right? (seeings how you can't keep it in the road)..
Hadda alot of fun out of "that ole Jeep" this summer..All five of the miles I've driven it..the wind was blowin' thru my hair, the sun was out, and I still see what I saw when I first fell in love..dang those tires looked good!!!
