    Rebuilding Troop seats

    My troop seats are in need of some TLC. Currently the seats are old Rottenwood in the headboard is the newer fiberglass. I assume hardwood is ideal for troop seats. What have you guys used? I was looking for some green composite decking material, but unable to find any longer than 8 foot.

    Big Mikes External Brake Fluid Reservoir?

    I bought the Big Mikes Motorpool kit some years ago and never installed it. Came to find a lot travel in the brake pedal yesterday, reservoir was just about empty, but i still had brakes. My yard waste run to the dump was cancelled. No wetness on rear wheels, but fronts are wet, mostly from torn...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Swapped out the ancient spare tire for a fresher one that matches the driver's side with new inner tube and flap. The old spare was terrible and out of round but it worked. The shock was toast on that side anyways, so I installed a Monroe for $30. I took a picture of the driver's shock part...

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Brought my flat steer tire to W & W Tire in Finksburg, MD to replace my inner tube and flap for $52. Its been flat for 6 years and have been running a very dry-rotted and square spare. I supplied the flap and tube. Well worth it since I have never done one before nor have the time. They work...

    Major rust repair help/ideas.

    Keep up the good work. I foresee some patch welding on mine. I have a 120/240v stick welder. What do you mean by backer strip or the washer method. What gauge steel are these panels?

    I have dreamed of those tires for mine since I got my Deuce. Maybe in 10 years...rofl

    Finally bypassed the FDC in my deuce.

    To confirm what I understand: In order to bypass FDC (without adjusting fuel) an EGT is required since the FDC does not work anymore?

    What did you do to your deuce this week?

    Hey fellow Tim, I forgot about another recent purchase, a Monroe shock 66903, since the passenger side it totally shot from my ancient spare with flat spots. This and the tire needs to be done next week so I can take a large load of trash to the dump from my recent basement job and torn down...
