    Does everyone have their passport situation figured out, they can take up to 8 weeks.

    Hey alykat,  if you have a 67 deck lid in usable condition I’ll take it the next time you come up to KCW.

    I’ll bring the fender next trip, or if anyone is going that way from here (Hotchkiss) and can drop it off, let me know.  I think Pat got the last of my 67 stuff way back when, but I’ll look through the piles just in case.

    Stripped and in the dirty shop for body repairs. We need to fabricate some stuff before paint too. I think we’re all in agreement on 50% gloss dove blue?

    Stuff to fab/fit.

    -battery mount. Need to check rules on where they like to see it mounted and where the kill switch should be. Odyssey 925 battery looks like a good one? Surely there is some new  lightweight lithium ion type battery available somewhere. I know those smart batteries are small.

    -navigation and communication mounts

    -fuel cell/fill

    -misc safety items and spares/tool mounts

    Consider putting a Holley Hydramat in the fuel cell if you haven’t already. They work real nice! I like them better than foam, baffles, etc

    Pat and I have been researching tires. I know BFG will provide fuel at pit stops if you run their tire.

    But I don’t think they are the best. They are heavy. The maxis tires like it currently has are 32lbs. Less with the grooves, but I am curious if that is legal. Rotating mass is going to be a huge factor in the silt I think. But we also want to have a rugged enough sidewall to take on some sharp rocks.

    This will be fun to see something unusual that has to be built within certain rules.  Curious what creative stuff you guys will come up with.

    You crash us like that and I’m going to kick your ass.  😀

    I talked with Empi today about a possible carburetor sponsorship. Sounds promising. We need to put together something like a resume to send in.
