    I’ve been plugging away at this a little every day this week.

    Final roof bar done.
    7F4F0C46-BD11-4BB0-B453-5E95FEDD55BF

    Cut gussets for upper part of the cage and burned them in on the top side. 9AAC601F-1BF3-4E58-A71A-89EE057FAB62F5710486-26CC-4791-B6E2-125B38A66141053FBE39-E106-4846-B8EC-9C22B506A0B1EC52655A-79E5-4E1B-B044-AF8946E505CA0736AB8C-0177-4D0D-B903-93B977F96FC0D62AA461-D08E-4177-8328-EF8F8A0F92F6

    Knocking out the last two uppers tonight. CE30A939-E979-43B6-BF2A-8FC8BC710F1EC703D366-4434-443C-84BB-F51A11686D4C

    We will build it if it comes.

    I’m digging the creativity that goes into these cages..  it’s not a one size fits all kinda thing like it used to be.

    Pat’s kicking ass! I see Dan has got himself a Baja now too. More work for KCW.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Give him a little nudge Dave… He has been overwhelmed with regular work lately.. work has been piling up again… I fear I’m gonna have to get back to it!!!

    Shocks seem to be back ordered like a mofo….   Dave what Brand shock do you prefer??  and is that no matter the class, or do have 11 favorites and class5 favorites?

    Decided the first BOR race was not doable due to parts availability. Instead of stressing I’m taking a break waiting on parts to pile up. I’ll be back at it soon.

    Pat it is looking awesome! I hear you about parts shortage, I am hearing 12-15 weeks for FOX Shocks for the bus.

    I will have some questions on a roll cage since my Baja choice has changed form a 69 hard top to my first car a 69 convertible. If I am going to sell one might as well be the hard top and keep my first car. Wife approved but the only requirement is roll cage.

    Riley and I started working on this again. Swapped out the stock trans cv flanges for 930s, and bolted it in.  Going to start setting up the rear suspension. 7F50932B-D6F0-49F1-A605-5572C3F2E28931032676-FA34-4203-A18B-9B1DB2C118940028A52D-1E01-4385-BF94-EDE4BA728BD4E9F9C1BB-1824-4764-958E-82782D185321

    Bus trans and 930 cv joints are the cat’s pajamas!

    ….King Dave, tell us about gear ratios….class5/1600 with 33” tires.

    I’m looking at the Weddle 5.14, 5.43, 5.50, or 5.86 ring and pinion to get first and second gear down. I have a 4.86 right now, but I think it’s too tall.

    Get some safety glasses on that kid. Hate to see an eye injury.
