We all know that we know nothing, but we're stuck with each other.

Roadrunner,
I'm originally from York, Pa and sold a green '73 Land Rover 88 to a guy in Indiana, 25 years ago...I want it back if you see him. Who knew they would be worth money.

Myrtle Lynn,
Not suggesting it, but when I was looking for my 345, I saw some real creative uses of Tupperware jugs and bottles.

That one is way off from mine. 21 is more like mine. But still a bit different. I wonder if it would come with a new basket type holder to mount to frame like my old one? Thank you again. You always have an answer. :-)

Tupperware is very durable as we know. And we can get at any Walmart when staying over night in parking lot. :-) that's a great idea.

Can't you make one for me? Lol you know mold it out of something that you find in your garage? The amazing things you do this is an easy project. I actually think the universal one looks good to me. I am going to hit some local places tomorrow and see if they sell universal ones. Thanks agin.

Well I ordered one from car quest today. Just saw these posts tonight. It looks to be an exact one. It's a universal with basket. When I find out more details I will post. Thanks again for the help.

Myrtle, I would definitely like to know what you end up with. I need to replace both the radiator overflow and the wiper washer tanks. Mine are as brittle as can be.

For sure. Ha. My wiper one is bad too. I forgot about it until now. They said they will have it at my shop in the morning.

Well got it this morning. Exact one. Wow! Can't believe it. And for $17. Now I have to figure out how to set up the low coolant sensor

Looks great...
This is what I have...
Complete with special venting!



Not sure if its the same as mine tho, but at $17 I will go for that too!

Ok, time for an update...

The Cherokee went back to the girl, and she is pleased... But I still had to flush the radiator, replace the Thermostat... and I finally figured out why it was running too warm... Fan Clutch was toast... Jeez, my hand are trashed... its tricky to do!

That was in the morning, so to save me from getting bored, I did a transmission filter and fluid on my Grand Cherokee... I think its been running on the Mobil 1 fluid for 40k... it was time. Also did the adjustment on the front and rear bands while I was there.

Then I got a call from here to say the Check Engine Light came on...


Then I had a little SCORE...
10 top quality wool buffing pads...
If anyone needs to buy some to do some polishing, PM me...
I got a deal for you!

Today, was Airstream day!
Today it was raining too!
So good chance to check for leaks...
Rear corner still leaking slightly, but I need to buff out the Upper marker lamps mounting spots before I reseal..

So, I ripped into the floor...
Set my Circular saw to just under depth, marked the nails...
And away I went...

I didnt get much further than that, as I needed some more tools, so stopped when the rain stopped, and moved onto Gas pipes.
Amongst the things I got this last week was 3' of 1 3/4.


I pulled the 2" pipe off the tank that I has put on as a stop-gap, and replaced it with the correct 1, 3/4" pipe.. and I used a piece of the 2" to replace the section in the bedroom...
Done.

Then I wanted to revisit the Front window seals....

I swear, I cannot do these fin seals... the one between the fixed and sliding glasses.
There is no way to get the old one out... I did by destroying it...
So you cannot get the new ones in intact either!!

Seems like Dan The Man (Smartstream) replaced his with the parts he got from Andy. I'd sure like a update from Dan 'cause mine are shot, too.
