Dont forget to check out that clicking we heard.

It sounded like the ebrake spring was rubbing the drum to me.

Looking good man. Can't wait to see it next to the rest of our club cars at the Shilo bar.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

That baby should sound good with them open headers. Everyone will know who you are then. Look out Tecumseh your being invaded by a red baja... 8-) 8-) 8-)

Ps: Say HI to the misses for me. Tell her that i'm still trying to figure out how we know each other. lol... :roll: :? :roll:

For sure Jim! (Note: the missing tires!) Waiting on my "Torque Dude", Yes I'm a sucker for tools also. only 2K left on the snap-on bill. This exhaust is temporary as is the hideous red paint! In the near future it will be all black w/ minimal chrome and polished aluminum and a ceramic coated Tri-mill. I will post pics as I go. And yes it will most definately be seen outside of a local establishment serving up cold beverages and easy women! Hey Jim, how about one of those bitchin' club stickers for the back glass?

Update: Just located a 7 piece glass kit w/ lights front and rear, front and rear bumpers, side bars and bolt in cage all for 2OO washingtons Providing the seller will ship!

The Step Child Runs! New fuel pump and some TLC and it lives! Runs pretty smooth too. I'll need to set the timing and tidy up a few wires. Now that it goes I need to make it stop. Looked into the "clicking" noise. Turns out that (New) brake spring pin is slightly longer than the old one! Hmmm. After some research I came up with two possible scenarios. I got a couple spare parts bugs out across town so I'll try to get that done by the weekend and be mobile!

It's coming together slowly. I got the brakes straightened out today. There is still a lot to do. Just getting it mobile is a big accomplishment. I am doing all of this outside so the weather lately is putting a serious damper in my progress.

Have posted in a while but here's a little update. Wiring is done. Completely rewired and converted to ATC fuses. New Master Cylinder. New Fuel pump. Gutted the ghetto wooden box in the back seat. Stripped the padding, left the headliner. Painting the interior black. Will install metal framing for the box. Ice and Snow coming. I'm ready to get this baby out of the shop and thrash the farm!

Pics coming soon!!!
