I agree.. your Bus is perfect!!! Don’t change a thing!!!!
X2! Run a taller tire if you want to try an pick up a little more ground clearance.PeteParticipantMay 4, 2023 at 12:39 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #77233
Thoughts? That’s full compression
I’ll show my ignorance here….is it possible to remove the end casting from the axle tube a reinstall a few degrees turned, just enough for the shock to clear?PeteParticipantMay 3, 2023 at 5:50 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: on Craigslist…… #77172
Not Craigslist, but Bring A Trailer – that badass custom lowlight KCW did several years ago.PeteParticipantMarch 29, 2023 at 8:41 amPost count: 1128in reply to: Tom’s 23 Window Deluxe!! #75737
You can only control your part. It sounds like the customer made other provisions early on for the drivetrain, for whatever reasons. Complete your obligation and tell Tom it’s done as far as you can take it, and to bring a dolly and pick it up within a reasonable amount of time since it’s taking up an indoor storage spot. Basically step back and leave it in your customer’s court to sort out. If Tom still wants to drive it from KCW let him know that can still happen, but he’s got to take the reins and get the parts (and the people if he wants someone other than you to install it) to KCW to do it ASAP.
This new dynamic between everyone is all really unfortunate.PeteParticipantMarch 23, 2023 at 12:51 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: all things JJJ’s #75360
Nice work on the semis and tailights. The detail is impressive. And quit giving your engines so much hell!PeteParticipantMarch 20, 2023 at 12:03 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s 58 Single Cab! #75069
Considering the plan for the rear suspension I figured you were throwing your norms out the window, lol.PeteParticipantMarch 20, 2023 at 9:02 amPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s 58 Single Cab! #75060
I may be mistaken, but I thought I’ve read that Bay beams can go higher?
edit – ‘68-‘69 bay beams are supposed to be 1-2” higher in their stock form.PeteParticipantMarch 1, 2023 at 6:52 amPost count: 1128in reply to: Pete's 58 Lowlight Karmann Ghia #74180
Not much of an update…just driving the wheels off of it. The only thing high on the list to tackle is the tie rod ends need replacing. Also considering adding a pair of Stefi.G’s 36hp rocker shafts…he’s made some that add springs to the outside, so the exhaust valves aren’t floating around…should be really quiet. Pretty slick design I believe.PeteParticipantMarch 1, 2023 at 6:39 amPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #74178
That car is badass. Short course racing looks way more fast/fun than that rock-crawling/trench drving out in the desert type stuff.PeteParticipantFebruary 16, 2023 at 12:17 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: KCW randomness #73807
Great shots as always, Will.
Thanks for the sweet Pics Willy… I know you take plenty.. But we only get to see a few… Doing MY LOG today… already done…
When shooting stuff that’s moving I’m lucky if I get 1 really good photo for every 10 or so I take….so if Willy shoots anything like me you’re seeing everything he’s got that’s worth sharing. 🙂PeteParticipantFebruary 9, 2023 at 6:24 amPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #73632
Time for surgery in an hour!!!! L2 lamnanetatomy!!
Hope it goes well and the recovery is quick!PeteParticipantFebruary 7, 2023 at 7:14 amPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #73587
Congrats John and Audrey! I bet making it to the finish felt like a victory in itself. Step in the right direction for your racing program. Couldn’t watch live, but hopefully it’s on their YouTube channel of past races to catch later.PeteParticipantFebruary 4, 2023 at 7:13 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #73525
I couldn’t spot the 1131 in the start line, hope they were able to race. There’s a few cars that could have been the 1164…hard to tell.PeteParticipantFebruary 4, 2023 at 5:10 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #73522
The land rush start was cool.PeteParticipantFebruary 4, 2023 at 4:58 pmPost count: 1128in reply to: JJ’s Class 11 Oval #73521
I haven’t seen either KCW car yet?
