    Been getting various trim pieces ready for paint. These pieces will be painted a high quality aerosol black color. Will make touch up easy. I also polished the amber lights and got them looking better. Took about 5 minutes a light. [ATTACH] [ATTACH]

    The small pattern adapter looked to be the easiest to modify, and after opening up the mounting holes with a dremel, it fit like a glove. [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] As you can see, the wings do interfere with the manifold studs/nuts. Adding...

    To fuel the rebuilt motor, we decided to go with fuel injection. I’ve used the AFI GM TBI conversion kit several times in the past with great results, but since the last AFI install have become aware of the new Sniper EFI system from Holley....

    I just went with ORIs out back. Did the 4 link myself but subbed out the new cage work and had the rear frame cut off to outboard the ORIs as wide as possible (and still retain space for a 30" backseat for the kids). Doesn't much look like a 40...

    I have a friend that recently did a truss for his buggy utilizing the landcruiser offset axle. It was done on a torchmate and I'm sure he'd be happy to share the file.
