    That thing will look just as cool getting towed down the highway behind the bus as it will on the sand doing huge fat wheelies!

    havent pulled out the pamper motor just yet…  I hope it’s just a cooler leaking…   I plan on running it without Tin on the run stand I say we rebuild it though no matter what😁😁😁.

    You guys ever use UV oil dye and a UV light?  It’ll tell you exactly where leaks are coming from.

    Gonna get it off the trailer and remove all the mock up engine stuff…. It’s time to do more than mock shit up.. 😎

    I want to go to oregon dunes, little sahara, you name it… 😎

    Andy sold his sand rail when I was out there in June. Haven’t heard a word from him in six weeks. Still working nights in the tomato processing plant maybe, or just ignoring me. 🙂

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

    Andy sold his rail??  SO I guess he concedes and looses the show down…. 😎 😎     Cause my ass is still going to the dunes!!!!  😎  😎  😎

    So…. I am gonna put some axles in my tranny and what not and get my rail rolling again… 😎  Then start on the motor… 😎   I have been watching my idol Blake Wilkey and others pulling wheelies at Glamis… 😎

     

    Gearing for reference.  Super diff so I can turn….. 😎  and do wheelies… 😎
