    With my race season all finished up I decided I better push this project back inside and get back to work on it! I don’t think I have touched it since June.  Up first is finish the cheapo cage kit and reinforce it into the suspension. I am struggling with the cheapo body lift kit. I really like the lifted look but it fits about like a soup sandwich.

    Looking good Travis, skip the body lift and let the tires rub.

    What’s up guys!! It’s been a minute. I got landed some great paying customers for the balancing/machine shop. Everyone has been blowing my phone up, I’ll get back to y’all. Give me a minute to screw my head back on!!

    So I sold the sandrail, I didn’t fit worth a dam in the car. Had about 1” above my head before the top rail. I still can come out and whoop on JJ with the 4 seater I did for my buddy a few years ago.

    Picked up this 70 baja. Made more since, I can drive it on the street and off road, the rail was off road only.  It’s a runner driver. Going to do a subi swap in it first, then do the 5.3 Chevy swap. I want heat and ac in the car.

    I did some 3” lifted spindles on it, made some 3×3 rear arms, it already has a bus trans. 31” super swampers, cut the fenders, and jacked the back up. Made the tail light panel. Guess my picture order is backwards.

    I think going link pin on the ball joint pan head would be interesting. Just make new trailing arms that are longer/wider to fix the beam spacing difference. I got 15” of ground clearance right now. Anymore and I’ll need to do some coil overs on the back to get that kinda lift. Front the beam is stock ball joint, just spindles. 2B3ACA5E-8D60-43CE-92E0-9E0109BC4254

    Looking good Andy. Don’t make goofy arms. Section the pan head top portion/upper beam bolt down to link pin width. It’ll give you clearance for a saco rack and pinion. Install the electric power steering assist on top of that and you’re golden.

    Kendall showed me a picture the other day from slettenengineering of a modified pan head.

    Mmmm, I like your thinking franz. I wasn’t even thinking of that. That seems a lot simpler/easy to replace parts if need be.

    Going to make some mirrors like the ones you had on your old red baja. I want to do some type of cage but not sure where to even start.

    Here is that panhead mod I was talking about. They sectioned the middle of the pan head and dropped the top, so that beam is mounted lower than it would be on a link pin panhead. And you get some tie rod clearance too.

    Hope you’re planning to buy a Mendeola transaxle and 934 cv joints before Chevy junk.

    I welded radio brackets on the backside of the dash, and cleaned all the foam out of the c pilars. What a fun job. Another step closer.BB700DCF-D733-4ABE-AA25-779FA0FA8CD9050B5514-6558-4F31-964C-EF6CD0BEB408
