Soft top cleaning

I used 303 fabric cleaner, it is actually a multi surface cleaner. While it did not get it perfectly clean it did a pretty good job. I also use a pressure washer to rinse the cleaner and dirt out of fabric with the pressure dialed down.

Re: Roof rack opinions

Just finished 1 phase of roof rack. Easy to modify if I don't like it. Only going to be for light loads. Very quick to remove probably won't have it on most of the time.

Re: Roof rack opinions

Hoops have not been cut in picture yet. The front brackets are made from scrap pieces I had laying around which have not been cleaned up yet.

Re: Roof rack opinions

Laying out material for light weight roof rack that is very easy to remove when not in use. Machines a piece of stock to fit inside conduit prior to welding. Unistrut will be used on the top.

Brake light/ Ignition switch

I have a question.
Does the ignition have to be on for brake lights to work?
I am troubleshooting rear flashers not working and notice rear brake only work with ignition switch turned on. All other lighting circuits work.

My jack was leaking from the valve that relieves pressure on the jack. Since that was the only leak I decided to try to fix it myself. I machined a piece of Delrin to fit over the valve stem which will compress rubber seal. So far no more leaks.
