bah.... you have 4 inches of body work to do.. and its all straight panels... unless you were going to paint it with a colour change..
i really think things would go quick after the drivetrain is in place.. you seem to get things done quick and its a lot of putting big chunks on..

i just wanna see someone build a buggy and i am two projects away yet...

hahaha

it still sux. Cool

the interior floor needs to get completely redone. The toybox pushed the t-case in to the PS floor which means the fuel tank won't fit. (well it will raised up an inch or too) The tranny hump is going to be a PITA. It needs a cage (I need to get those metal tech hoops)

plus I want to completely assemble and then take it all apart to get the frame coated.

Man the list goes on.

scooby doo where are you!!!!!

So I got two 3.73 difs ripped apart and cleaned up and a set of 5.29s ready to go. Ring gears and new bearings are all installed. Hopefully tomorrow I can get them set up and installed in the truck. JP and I must have made a tool for doing difs back in the day because I found one in my tool box that I didn't know I had (or at least forgot). It worked GREAT.

Feels good to get 4 boxes of stuff installed and a set of difs off the floor.

Shop is cleaned up. Old sony 27" TV is in the alley and my cupboards are all finally where they should be.

I can't believe how heavy those old TVs are. I think I paid as much for that old trinitron as I did for our new 56" tv. Sad
