    Yeah because from every attempt at getting the windshield in, it seemed too big and I had read that’s what people were doing. Low and behold, the PPG glass I just put in was slightly larger than the AGC that cracked after 6 hours of sanding and I didn’t sand it so it can be done. I’ll be putting...

    Haha looking underneath at everything being so clean and nice had me cursing myself for making it too nice. It was supposed to be a weekend warrior replacement to keep wear and tear off my cruiser. Anyways, it’s super fun and has already skated across some chunky gravel corners and down some...

    Thanks! I just snagged these pics real quick before leaving town but once I wrap up those last things, I’ll be sure to take some more before it gets driven in the elements and wheeled

    Well since moving to KC for work at the beginning of July, I’ve been commuting back on the weekends to wrap up the build. The gasketed windshield has been a huge PITA with sanding one down until it cracked and then getting the next one in 99% of the way before it cracked. Third time will...

    City Racer 16” wheels with Yokohama M/T G2003s and KM3

    I’ve about got 20k on mine. Still smooth but have gotten a little noisier. Still looking good, but no idea on an actual measurement as it’s 5 hours away from me in storage for the foreseeable future

    Builds Corax's 1UZ VVTi swap

    @corax I think I remember you mentioning running a GX rear driveshaft? Is that a double cardan, or will you be switching to one? I would bet it was because the differential is offset. I briefly looked at doing one under mine as I had a spare 9.5” rear axle with 4.88s already in it but quickly...

    80 Series Factory Bumper Swing Out DIY Kits

    PM replied to, but for anyone else wondering, the ball stud assembly is held in place by the 2x4 outrigger after it is drilled and tapped. This is how the hole looks from above the bumper wing, going through the skeleton, and into the 2x4 outrigger. The latch gets welded on, and the zerks are...

    Thanks...I would like to do some flip up gull wing windows there and I’ll probably play around with designing some down the road if I don’t just design a new top, but it’s not something I have time for right now. I’m actually moving tomorrow and with this thing not running, I’ll have a 5 hour...

    Finally out of the garage. Brand new CV axles have some wiggle so may have an issue with both of them which seems unlikely or something with the front diff. It also looks like I’m going to have to cut every mount off the rear axle, raise the pinion big time and have a custom and extended double...

    I recently did some installs for a couple guys. This one is a traditional kit The one below is a hilift kit and is a new version with the plates that support the wheel plate. Aesthetically, it’s basically unchanged with the tire on. I originally had plates CNC cut on the last batch to gusset...
