You know Best!!! I’m gonna shoot for all new/rebuilt parts and try to start out right on this lift job! Order up whatever I need!!!! Bearings, adjusters, shocks, tires…..what else??? (Please!) 🙂
I’ve got E brake cables and rims, that’s it! 🙂John JonesKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 7:36 amPost count: 5695
I think you should just do it like you do customers Franz… Just flip the springs and call it good… 😎 Some Bilsteins would be good… 😎ColeBParticipantMay 8, 2019 at 7:58 amPost count: 1231
I’d recommend the bilsteins from a stock beam perspective! Excited to rally them off-road next weekend and give them the true test. They are also blue and yellow which =speedPat KKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 8:12 amPost count: 1096
Finished up basic engine wiring yesterday. This one has a few extra wires, for worry gauges, to hook up that I need to speak to Franz about.
Fit the oil cooler housing. Had to fill in the gaps with a bit of filler for a flush fit.
Sanded and laid down some spray polly.
Also mounted the oil filter and crank case breather.
Sanded and sealed the cooler housing this morning.
Mike was here yesterday and started on his front window seal. Hoping I see him today. We need some oil lines, and some perforated stainless for oil cooler housing grills.
We will build it if it comes.FranzKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 8:39 amPost count: 2876
Stainless punch plate is probably a mcmaster item.
Tell Mike to “hurry up” like you did Will. 🙂
I’ll try to come in tomorrow morning. This ankle is still hurting like crazy.RustabusParticipantMay 8, 2019 at 6:45 pmPost count: 1651

Mike grabbed some expanded alum. yesterday for the snorkel grills. I got them bent up and in by days end. Mike went to get oil lines made up today. Parker store was out of stainless braided line. Should have everything tomorrow for final install.

We might need to add some of that aluminum mesh onto the race car’s scoop! Looks pretty bitchin.FranzKeymasterMay 9, 2019 at 9:21 pmPost count: 2876
Killing it Pat! Seems like you’ve pretty much handled this project the entire way through.
The panel/flake paint job is going to be ridiculous. I’m excited to do it…..seems like Mike has built the car with it in mind from the beginning. I’ve been doing my homework on layout and techniques.
