    Default What have you done to your CUCV today/lately? - Part 1

    Just curious! I may get inspired from some responses!!!

    Today I replaced all three belts. It was pretty easy and I used the Dayco numbers supplied in the specification section. I mounted a 20MM ammo can for my console. I mounted a 50 Cal. ammo can to use as a small tool box on the mount in the rear behind the bench seat. I removed the sill plates to see what might be lurking under them. Thankfully all looked good, nice and solid! Lastly, I got a quote for a roll bar of sorts. I have twin six year old and we ride topless and the sun beating down on them is just too much so I am having a bar fabricated to attach a bikini top of sorts to. $200.00, not too shabby.

    Thanks all!!

    Replaced front cracked windshield, and upgraded to a sliding rear glass for the summer. Replaced a damaged rear bumper. Plugged the holes in the top of the cab from where it had a light bar in the Ga Forestry. Located the gun racks, need to install those.

    I like the 20mm can for the console..... are you adding cup holders?
    I just took off the front cowling to repaint.... and cleaning the grunge from under it..... didn't find anything of value..... just a web of old leaves and pine needles.... looked in real good shape for age.....
    I am also cleaning up the insides.. pulling seat frames and painting them this weekend.... I want to do a bedliner but keep changing mind to do a thick one and leave as is or do thin and then add insulation and indoor/outdoor carpet or astroturf.....

    also looking to fab a couple of antenna mounts with guards... I gave up trying to buy.... might not be true original, but hope to get close.....
    Finally going to Limo tint the side and rear windows.... don't want too many eyes looking into to see the stuff in the boxes...... fabbed some storage boxes to resemble the old 4.2 inch rocket boxes we use to have in the Cav for the cobra's.....
    Still working on paint and lids....

    Oh yea and drove it around the block a couple times with my best buddy ..... my black lab.....!!

    Hey DXTAC, what were the part numbers for the seatbelts? Just completed a new passenger side rocker, replaced cracked windshield with a new one that has the antenna. Installing a radio will be next.
