    best source of expo build parts and pieces

    I love this idea. I prefer to be creative and build my own expo gear when possible. My wife calls the garage my “therapist”. I go in there and come out happy and inspired. So here’s my addition: I am currently building my own roof rack using v-slot bars and hardware from these guys...

    All fun projects with the exception of the engine replacement. I did not enjoy that. As far as the swing out, the only thing I would recommend is welding the fitting in the bumper that the strut connects to. I threaded it in and it moves around a lot. It will pop out one of these days and smack...

    The last thing worth mentioning is the addition of an air chuck to the front bumper. Now I don’t have to open the hood when I want to fill the tires with the York:

    Next up was finishing my project to add a jerry can and propane tank holder to my swing out. I got a lighted license plate holder out of the junk yard and wired it up. I think it turned out pretty good:

    Next up was replacing the AC condenser that got dented while swapping out the engine last year. It is amazing that it did not leak at all, I messed it up good:

    I decided to go ahead and delete the ABS and the LSPV. Huge difference in braking. Always had the feeling of not being able to get all the air out now I have a solid pedal. Now I have a spot to put extra stuff:

    A great vacation: week at home getting caught up on cruiser projects. First to mention: I replaced all of the brake discs with Napa brand. Installed 100 series EBC green stuff pads in the front and 80 series EBC green stuff in the rear. I also replaced all of the rubber brake hoses with OEM...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Also replaced all rubber brake hoses, disc’s and EBC green stuff pads. While I was at it I deleted the ABS. Now I have all of this extra real estate: For all of the edge of your seat excitement be sure to check out my build thread. I took a week off from work so was able to get lots done.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    I replaced my AC condenser. The old one was a little bent up but surprisingly did not leak:

    Just bought my first 80-Series - many pics!

    Nice man! I'm in Gwinnett too. Hit me up if you need any help wrenching or want company on a trip to the mountains. My 80 has been begging to get dirty.

    Exhaust over or under frame, options?

    Would it be easier if someone built an exhaust pipe that includes the cat and the muffler that exits before the rear tire that tucks up high enough to not get in the way of sliders?

    I’ll hit the dash with a closed fist maybe that way I can get the light to come on and create another cup folder. Win win.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Over the weekend, much to my dismay and heartbreaking disappointment, the D light finally went out at 292,300 miles. What’s next, my electric antenna not working?
