What did you do to your TJ today?

Looking Damm good

Thanks. This Colorbond LVP product worked great.

I got the full lineup from their website; prep, adhesion promoter, color, and clear coat (satin).

I used half the can of adhesion promoter, 1.5 cans of color, and half a can of clear coat. I have leftovers of each if I ever need to reapply.

I used a rattle can handle for the first time and I'll never not use one again.

finally changed out my flasher for the led version for my back tail lights and on the way to work this morning it started beeping from the dash, well after reading some threads here seems like with that flasher it thinks the turn signal is on, so I guess I fixed a problem yet started a new one :rolleyes:

I did order a new radio from cruthcfield this weekend so hopefully it comes in before Friday so I can toss it in.

I changed my relay when I went all LED, little did I know there were different styles of relays and mine had an extra prong so I had to order another one. I hated the hyper flash.
Only issue I need to resolve is when I hit the brakes, my left turn signal will go solid unless I bump the turn signal switch. I’ve read it’s probably just a bad connector but I’ve yet to address it 😅
 
So I had a Barnes Pritchett canyon front bumper with a winch guard. The guard was not tall enough to have a thimble fairlead from BMB. So with @mrblaine expert help the winch guard was cut off. I also purchased Savvy winch guard and light mounts. I used Sd Powder Coating to powder coat everything since my rattle can job was so bad. It is all back together and looks soon much better.

Nice I noticed you switched out the factory tow hooks. Did it give you a bit more clearance from the fogs?

Yes, that is why I changed them. I did like of look of the OEM hooks, but there was hardly any room for a rope or soft shackle. I ordered theses from Wetmore, they are the Buyers products hooks.

oh good grief, which one did you get I ordered the LM470 which I thought was the right one, only other thing that I did was switch out he marker lights up front but those are not led and maybe I did not get one in all the way,
 
Calibrated my speedo today, much better than rough guessing on the fly. I kinda missed the easy to swap gear from before, but now that this is done I never have to buy anything else again. Unless the little box shits the bed, then I rebuy it.

did you feel like this was a better option than trading out he gear ?

I guess if you expect to need to change your speedo gear a 3rd time then $80 for an electronic solution makes sense I guess. Or if you change your tires frequently? Otherwise $40 for the new speedo gear seems like the better buy. You have the gear you already have, the one you changed to, and then you could buy a 3rd one if you needed and still about break even, never mind the reliability question of the device vs how reliable that gear is going to be long term. Or maybe I'm just cheap (very very likely).

I believe I ended up going with the EP26 for my 1997. Sure was a pain to get to since my tilt steering doesn’t tilt

yes they are.
Turns out that they took an original OEM switch and remade it. You can easily remove the actual rocker from an OEM one and the aftermarket one and swap them.
All you have to do is use a #30 drill on the left hole so that the aftermarket switch can fit.
OEM housing, aftermarket rocker.

original on the left.

Are those ON switched the aftermarket kind found on eBay and Amazon?

If so, how did you get the text to light up?



This is AWESOME! I have been trying to figure out how to do this for so long!

But, can an OEM switch still be found? Is there a way to modify the one they make to have two lights? So strange they only added one 'on' light.
 
We may need a companion thread "What should I do to my TJ today".

I have plenty of To-Do's, but when I turn the key and it starts and drives, it is on the bottom of my Spring To-Do list.

Taxes, lawn, hot tub, motorhome are all eating up my time right now.

I did hose the pollen off this morning, it was back by noon.

Sorry I don't mean to laugh, but it is weird weather season here. Last week we had a couple 70* days and it was snowing again yesterday.
