I’ve been plugging away at this a little every day this week.
Final roof bar done.
Cut gussets for upper part of the cage and burned them in on the top side.
Knocking out the last two uppers tonight.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesModeratorMarch 26, 2021 at 7:25 amPost count: 7693
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.BBWBParticipantMarch 26, 2021 at 9:21 amPost count: 1011
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.John JonesModeratorApril 14, 2021 at 7:38 amPost count: 7693
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?Pat KModeratorApril 14, 2021 at 8:49 amPost count: 1926JasonSParticipantApril 14, 2021 at 12:07 pmPost count: 193
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.Pat KModeratorMay 6, 2021 at 7:19 amPost count: 1926
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.

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.
