    back for some updates!

    finaly tired of riding static and decided if I dont get my ass in gear ill have paint on this unit before the hydraulics are working!! soo…. I allready have my plans laid out to order a few things but I went ahead and setup a single dump gate pump for the rear and hooked it up so I can lift the rear for some travel again…little did I know in my infinite wisdom of hyrdraulics I went with a too tall of a cylinder and they hit the underside of my deck when hitting a heavy bump….doh! and durrrr…. I should have known better but sometimes I just see stars..lol got some 8 inch cyls comming next week that will fix that slight problem… 😆 🙄

    also got tired of my roof lookin like dook so in the little bit of free time at work I welded the emblem holes up, seamed sealed the drip channels and blocked the roof

    then threw on some primey prime……..cant wait to finish up the body work on the right side!!

    ill do some more work next week for sure!! hopefully I will be ordering my manifolds for my hydro pump and finaly finish my suspension!! 😈

    had some custom spoons made of my design so I can straighten up the camber on the front, using heavy duty 2500 balljoints it did the trick, now my tires are perfect vertical rolling low. made of 1/2 because I dont need nothing heavier for this application.

    well I started back on trying to get the rough bodywork done to this monster so got onto the front end again

    getting the body up top to match the hood and blocking the rest out halfway decent

    hood fit alot nicer now

    also blocked and did addtional work to the fenders as well along with blocking and repriming the roof

    and for the first time in a long time it was solid again

    well got back on it again doing smaller spots like welding holes up and smothing over bad spots

    along with finaly smoothing out the fender jambs and sealing them in well

    then I decided to throw on some color on the outside at least till I have all my ducks in a row, then do my final paint only after I have my wheels, new chrome, full interior…etc…etc… no reason to paint it all wild and put junk back on it…

    prepping her down

    in the booth, getting ready

    out after two cure cycles… it pinched up some but it will be a good solid base to fix all the body imperfections and other things that may pop up before I do my final paint

    nothing special about the paint right now, just a black Limco Singlestage, witch I got to thank Accurate Auto Paint in Valdosta, GA the hookup

    its a 20 footer right now, wich im happy about. I drive my car every day and shinny black is a whole lot better than ghetto shadetree faded primer black any day lol

    got the pump filled and ready togo in

    it was a pig making it fit in… I knew it would be tight in there but damn…lol…beats having it taking up space in the trunk


    made a quick template for a close out panel ill get some sheetmetal to make thse out next week

    all I got to do now is run my battery wiring and hook up the solonoid and install the front cyls and she’ll be back adjustable again!

    did alittle work on making some back interior stereo speaker pods, my next main adventure is sorting out the interior this summer along with some stereo

    first fabbed up the backing board and speaker pod and test fit

    then I stretched some material over it all and fiberglassed it


    got them all smoothed out


    then covered them in some temporary material until everything is ready to be done.


    and that’s done…next im onto making the door panels next

    and picked me up a few small goodies

    maltese cross cast covers for my lakes pipes

    my little homie rocky approves, said Bark Bark

    and some windshield wiper bullets
