82 WAGON RALLY MACHINE
« on: February 06, 2013, 08:08:04 PM »
so i figured i should start a new topic because my eagle has been an ongoing project since i got it. heres the list of

what i have done.
-Rebuilt the carter bbd and converted to a manual choke.
-new front struts
-new fuel sending unit
-welded leaky gas tank
-welded a new seft of 4 door handles
-used the modified vacuum diagram to get rid of some unnecessary lines
-welded a tube bumper for the front
-got all the gauges to work
-lots of cosmetic stuff

And what i have planned.
-manual 4x4 shift conversion
-2" lift
-getting the windows tinted
-transfer case swap eventually...
-new rims/ tires
-lots of other small things

also if someone wants the rear left bumper cap, it was the only one that hadn't rotted apart, i also have "honey" colored drivers door panel etc and a set of "honey" speaker grilles if anyone wants or needs them.

the day i got it and now

Proper installation might be a challenge, but if you're up to the task then I'm sure they would be more reliable than the stock seats/seat frames. You might want to get measurements of the seat back though, it looks a bit tall.

Personally, I think that red would be a little too bright for my taste and the style/color would clash with the interior. Otherwise, looks pretty comfy :o
