Finished up the basis for my tablet mount, need to do a bit of finishing work to make it look a bit more presentable but it's functional for now.

I went back out in the snow and sound deadend my driver and passenger door. Put the door panel back on and then installed a new switch plate cover so my dome light switch doesn't dangle from the wires anymore. You can also see the fog light switch that I mounted where the choke cable used to go.

Ok so the updates as of late have been slow since it got to cold in Chicago to go outside let alone work out there.

The second day of the cold snap I had a intake manifold gasket fail and I had to fix that. PTSchram described it as to much crank case pressure. I think it flooded gas into the oil and fumes ignited

So while I was at it I replaced a few coolant hoses, thermostat and gasket as well.

Turned out the battery was shorting internally as well so a new interstate battery went in today as well. Luckily the old one was still under warranty so it was free to replace

Finally I put my rear spacers on and did a oil change. I'll take some better pics of the after with the spacers on tomorrow in the daylight.

Got the over head TerraFirma console and a stereo installed and wired.





Well when it rains it pours. Along with the water pump it looks like the front diff is in the process of eating itself. Over the last 2 days I had noticed a vibe and a rumbling coming from the front of the 110. So of course I figured it was U-joints got under there and looked and they are solid. I noticed there was a lot of slop on the front diff when turning the shaft by hand. So I pulled the drain plug and out poured a really metallic version of diff lube. So I'm going to be pulling a spare front diff out of the old RRC parts truck and swapping it in.

Need to get the water pump ordered. I was also debating a new fan and clutch but I think instead I'm going to install a thermostat controlled electric fan along with a manual over ride.
