Re: Re-wiring CJ....advice needed
Taz, I do like those baggies. The bins are a good idea too, for larger things. I used about 60 of baggies, a few with just two or three bolts in them, but it really hasn't been a problem digging through them when I need to.
When I finished taking everything apart, I went through the bucket of baggies and inventoried everything that had to be replaced, putting the information into a spreadsheet. Then I sorted it by description and turned it into a P.O. for the bolt house.
The supplier put each type fastener into a separate baggie with a label, so I took those baggies and stapeled them to a piece of plywood. When I'm putting something on, I look at the spreadsheet sorted by application, pull the nuts, bolts and washers out of the bags, and go to work. It's a pretty good system because I am replacing almost every fastener. The little brackets, clamps, spacers, springs and things are in the labeled baggie in the bucket.
