Lovely Wife bought me a digital camera!!

Well all of these years i've been without a digital camera or a scanner. My wonderful wife went out the other day and bought me a Kodak DX3500 digital camera and docking station that lets me take the pictures, place the camera in the dock, push a button and all pictures automatically download to the computer. Cool stuff. Well below is a link to some pictures of my 2 Jeeps, more will come later when I actually get the Scrambler out of the garage, and get the 3" tera lift I bought on the TJ. Before you say anything about the stuff on top of the Scrambler, that is up there to keep the cats from jumping on my soft top from the ceiling beams above and ripping the top or something. The Scrambler is almost driveable, just need to pressure up the brake system and fix any leaks from the flares I made, and have the exhaust system modified to connect to the stock exhaust manifolds that are back on there in lieu of the headers that were there. The TJ is completely stock right now, but I just ordered the remaining parts I needed last week to put the 3" tera lift I have on. The 31's that are currently on the Scrambler will be moved to the TJ and 33's will go on the Scrambler. Well here is the link:

Re: Lovely Wife bought me a digital camera!!

Cool!!!
I have been wondering what your Scrambler looked like. Did you just finish making your own brake lines? How hard was it? My original lines are still intact, but the connectors are shot. I though I could bend some replacement lines using the originals as a template. How did yours turn out? What tools did you need?

Later,

Re: Lovely Wife bought me a digital camera!!

Thanks Tom, I did finish my lines although they haven't been tested yet [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. The only thing I worry about is whether the flares I made with the cheap tool I bought will leak. I broke down in the later stages and bought a Craftsman flaring kit, which gives you the tools to do the two step flare, wheich seems to look better/more uniform. Its really not hard, I bought a cheap bending tool at Harbor Freight for like $6 to bend the brake lines with, the flare kit (which includes the bar that hold the brake line and the tools that makes the flare), and a good tubing cutter with a ream to ream the tube right after you cut it. It just takes a little practice, As soon as I get it bled and tested I'll let you know how everything worked out. Now I just have to get the emergency brake working [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
