Patrollers-

I got tired of staring at the old girl while she waits for her springs. I took some pics to remember where we started.

Alright... After a little more than 3 months I just got a call yesterday that said the springs will be here Friday. I'm excited to finally get the old girl back on the road! Hopefully I can knock it out this weekend.

A few questions for anyone with answers:
What swaybar links should I get for +2?
The parts page seems to be down, where can I find new brake lines?
Does Raul make the soft top as well or just the frame?

Raul makes the soft top as well and makes a fine product.

So as it turns out the weekend leaf spring project has turned into a 3 weekend endeavor so far with 3 leaf springs in. The front is completely done and I'll have the right rear done this weekend.

My brakes have been leaking and I took off the hub to see brake fluid all over my front shoes... I've found the ebay link for them from AUS. Will they fit my 63? it says 67-80 I believe.

Also I still don't have rear sway bar links that are long enough. Does anyone know the proper length needed like on the Green Machine? Speaking of Green Machine, who made those shackles? I might need some for the front since it seems as if the "+2" I received has quite the rake.

Three weekends? Sounds about right for a Patrol project.

The wheel cylinders will work for your '63.
