ramblings on my CJ5

hey all. nothing really important, just wanted to boast of my accomplisments. ive had a fun time playing with jeep. first, i put a big white star on the hood, and 2 little ones on the sides(had a friend make me decals). looks really good on my OD green. then i fixed the leaky gas tank( broken at the filler neck). these werent made to be taken out from the bottom. also found out why gas gauge dont work, the wire is broken off and tied around the frame about 3 feet in front of the tank. dang PO, tearing up my jeep. also fixed the speedo cable, it was broken and hanging down. so the speedo works now. im so happy. i finally put the winch back on. i took it off a while back, planning to slightly dismantle it, paint parts, weld nicer front to it, never did. but it works, which is cool. also took out the back seat and put in a big box/ trunk. made it out of plywood and 2 hinges. i found the plans somewhere on here. a guy made one for his CJ7. so im slowly getting everything together and un-scary. only the cig. lighter and gas gauge dont work. luckiy the heater works still. getting cold here... well, guess thats about it. im setting off on my first jaunt outside town in jeep tommorow, i got jitters. jeep gets scary at about 55, so its gonna take a while. well, im off. sparky
