And the charcoal cannister. The original can was trashed. Got this NOS unit off the internet. Modified the mounting bracket to keep it tight on the frame.

Ok, moving on to the front suspension. To start, I'll be using the Jeep steering shaft, and a steering gear re-build kit.

Disassembled the gear box, then, a complete solvent cleaning. Happy to see very little to no sludge inside, (considering it's age).

Found some old photos, then re-sized. The buckets are the same size as the bench.
