Going home to install my new rear caliper brackets, calipers and rotors on my 9". ByeBye drums!

Installed front recovery points (AKA bumper protectors) on Frank's. Carpeted the kicks.


Cleaned mine out a little, removed the grille guard & prepped it for some remedial welding.

Figured out why she was making a high pitch noise every once in a while when I tried to fire her up - the starter was about to fall off! It was way loose! Re-wired the ARB compressor. I've some how managed to fry 2 relays. I've been utilizing 4-prong, 12V, 40A relays from the auto parts store. Did a systems check and all is fine... now. What gives?

Also did some minor fender trimming to keep the sheet metal above the bumpers. Hoping to do some wheeling either this weekend or the next - weather permitting. No more top (a side panel shattered last winter when it became brittle) or doors for that matter. She's a fair weather rider now!

Fired up the '73 this morning. Loaded up the kids and my 15X10 vintage slots that I just acquired. Dropped the kids off at school and headed to Ralphs Wheel Polishing out in the valley (250 mile round trip). As usual, received comments from bums on the street to hot chicks in the parking lot loving the EB.
Also spotted a '75 ranger clone on the way. Wish I had my camera. I BS'd with the owner for nearly an hour on his $50K restoration. It was worth every penny

Bought a Stereo to fill the big hole in my dash. Went with the Sony boat/marine stereo with IPOD connector. Was 125.00 new, with free shipping.


Researching marine amps now - will probably go with some wake board speakers, too.

Gonna start stripping mine down today so I can get ready to paint it next week. It's already in primer so hopefully I can get it ready for paint in a week. I painted the half cab last week so thats all set.
