    Spent some time on this yesterday. Body mount was in the wrong spot on the aftermarket section, leaning forward and about 1” to far back at the bolt hole.B68321C9-F2F0-408F-A6B8-BAC5165C0E85

    Drilled out the spot welds and relocated to the correct spot. Sectioned in the correct shock bolt hole. Fit and ready to burn in.10A55F88-3846-4D30-A631-34CB9C298F04

    We will build it if it comes.

    Nice work Pat!  Lots of people would’ve just left it, but that’s a nice fix and ‘good to know’ for the rest of us 🙂

    Good work Pat! You like what you do, it shows in your work! Wish I had the same drive to get my projects moving faster. It seems this dang desk woops my 45 year old butt on the daily. Then when I get home my 7 year old boy finishes me off. I wouldn’t have it any other way though I’m blessed even in my mess!

    Bit more done over the last couple days. Patched up the drivers rear quarter. 9429F0D5-352A-4186-A259-F67762768017

    Fit bumper mount.  Passenger-side will require the same work. Will need fit fenders and bumper before burning in bumper mounts. F76C86FD-F70A-4BA3-A05D-1E9CF90366E9

    We will build it if it comes.

    <p style=”text-align: right;”>Personal projects seem like they would be easy at kcw but truth is it’s not. Customers projects always take priority and after working 10+ hours to make 8 billable hours of pay it’s hard to keep pushing on your own. As you’ve all seen with Franz building his bus it took years.. not months as a customers would. It’s the “Friends” of kcw who show up on weekends who are the ones who really benefit the most from the shop. Good luck finishing your car Pat. It would cool seeing drive something nice</p>

    ^^ That is bullshit!!!!!!

    KCW is what you make of it. Best part is JJ gives us the freedom to choose our own path at the shop. Some of our paths are shorter then others. Choices we make lead us down that path.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Hard to find better friends then at KCW. Accidents happen when you are having fun. Baja’s are made to be broke and fixed. DAMM I MISS MY RAGTOP🤪

    Scoop up that one you showed me on samba ready to hit trails for the same price I’ll have spent when mines finished. I need to start looking at upgrading at least driver seat, I really like the ones in . Franzs Baja
