Little CJ

Okay, here she is in her current state of repair. R has been telling his mom about the Jeep, but hasn't been able to show her any pictures. So, as much as he teases me about this blog (Why'd you put that on there?), he asked me to put these up.
Over the past 4 or 5 weeks, we've been going back and forthh between internet shops and our auto parts store trying to get the brake parts.
Back in the beginning, all he wanted to do was take the tires off to paint the hubs. From day one, I knew it wouldn't be that easy. He found a few one very bad brake drum and decided to replace it. He also "accidently" got air in the brake lines--which required new brake cylinders since the previous owners didn't have them right. Since he was breaking (ha! how'd you like that pun) the whole thing down, he decided to check the wheel bearings, which also needed replacing. The parts ordered online came in very quickly, but the little things from our auto parts store kept getting mixed up and we would wait days and days to get one tiny little thing in!
Finally, last weekend, he got them all put back together. And, they even work! (Of course, I never doubted him!)
