|thefixxer||You mean cooler lines right?|
|03-06-2019 05:44 AM|
Yeah, I finished it up and have been wheeling it. I just don't know an easy way to upload photos onto Pirate 4x4 anymore. If you know of a way let me know.
If not, my Instagram for the build is "OG_4x4"
My current problem with the rig is a leaky th350 where the coolant lines enter the case.. Seems to be common to TH350's that had the coolant lines tightened too much.

|wildman4x4nut||So did you ever finish this? Got any finished pictures?|

|zuzu||Awesome. I am following. Looking forward to it. In my Willys the speed at about 65 seems okay body wise and noise I just wish the t90 and D18 didn't sound like a 747 taking off.|

|sigseth||It drives great on the highway. I can let my hands off the wheel and it'll drive straight and smooth. The only thing that limits its top speed is the TH350. To drive 75 down the freeway the revs get pretty high.|

|zuzu||Awesome build how is the drive ability on the highway? I love the way it turned out.|

Love the build! Looks great! What did you do with the extra windshield? I'm 6'5" and would love one of those windshields! Also I'm doing a similar build as well doing a CJ-2A onto a TJ frame that I'm about to start as well but I'm going with a Kubota V1903 Turbo Diesel to a Wrangler 32RH 3-speed automatic and NP231 transfer case!

Volvo Electric Cooling Fan
I set up my electric fan using the Volvo setup from the above page. Seems to work good! I pulled the Volvo fan controller off a wrecked 850 at pick n pull. Cost $6 plus a $2 entrance fee. The used ones off ebay were going for about $30...Always worth a junkyard visit.

I used a volvo 2 speed fan and relay. I have the low speed triggered by a temp switch on the engine and I have a manual switch to turn the high speed on. 95% of the time the low does everything I need it to do, However, on long grades I can turn the fan on high for extra cooling.

Thank you for the input guys. I stumbled across an internet page tonight which explains dual speed fans with two relays towards the bottom.. It contains useful information for other types of setups as well. Going to stop by the auto store tomorrow and pick up the relays and supplies I'll need to make it work.
Here is the link for anyone interested:

|bdkw1||To turn the fans off, run the power trigger wire for the relays to a switch. This one wire will run both relays since they are ground switched by the computer. They are also low amperage so that you don't need a giant switch or wire.|

Sigseth, found this...an msd support tech chimed in so hopefully it points you in the right direction.

Happy Saturday Pirate,
I need help from all of you who know more than I do with wiring up an electric fan in the rig. I've tried to research and teach myself over the past few days, but I'm spinning my wheels and wasting time at this point.
I'm running a Derale 16819 electric fan on my radiator, and I'd like to set it up to be triggered by the two ground wires off of my MSD Atomic EFI.
As far as relays and such go, what is the best thing to use? piece something together myself, buy a kit? I'm basically clueless..The fan is a dual speed..How many relays do I need to use? I'd also lie to have some sort of a switch so I can turn the fan off during water crossings.
This is the last hurdle before getting to fire up the rig for the first time..
HELP!! hah I need info and everything is appreciated. Thanks guys!

I sprayed the Ceramic Insulation at 70 PSI.

|J_Impact||Pictures don't work?|

|Gojeep||The ceramic insulation looks like the texture I am after. Would that hold up under the body as well to stones etc?|

I sprayed the Raptor Liner with my compressor set to about 50 PSI. I had some trouble with one of the bottles in the kit where it started to harden before I was able to spray it..This caused the applicator gun (The one recommended by UPOL) to clog and begin to shoot out large chunks of the product. I discarded the entire bottle of product I then cleaned the applicator gun and continued application with the fourth and last bottle of product at about 60 PSI.
Since it seems like there is an interest in the Lizard Skin I'll share some of the photos of its application. I had added some reinforcing to the bottom of the tub following the body stretch. I first made sure to prime the new metal and bottom of the body. I then scuffed the primer to assist in adhesion with the lizard skin sound control.
Photos of the Lizard skin while it cured:
The bottom side of the hood had a smoother less chunky texture to it as it was only sprayed with the ceramic insulation:

I've read about the lizard skin products and have been curious to see how they hold up. It's popular in the hot-rod community but haven't seen it used in a 4x4 yet, so keep us posted.

|Gojeep||Least you will be able to give a good back to back report on how the different liners work. What pressure did you use on the Raptor lining as that affects the texture?|
