    Oh they're there trust me!
    The guy who did the break lines (and a good friend of mine, Ryan) swung by after work and we knocked them out. He knows his stuff!

    Seth wanted me to update this, since I got the dunebuggy ya'll are worried I'm gonna be a VeeWee convert... Well, now it's split time. I am literally 6 hours off of wrapping up this build. It's registered as well. Had some issues with the radiator overheating so I said SEEYA to the fan and put a perma cool fan in. Wiring is done, put some rocklights in. Put Hella conversion bulbs in, man they's bright! Also did a new alternator bracket, it works now haha. Plus it charges. Also re did my cage.

    Needs some brackets for the daylighters, some grinding on the seams, a brace for the winch cut out, some D ring mounts, etc....


    Engine is going in tomorrow: June 27 2010

    OBA beginnings. York 210R and it even works...79 volvo wouldn't give it up without a fight... But I won. Next time I need anything from that yard I'm bringing a sawzall...I'm willing to cut through good parts to get what I need. Had I had the sawzall today that volvo woulda lost it's front clip.
    I'll need to hop on the rail runner and meet ya in Santa Fe... Never been on it, wouldn't mind learnin it, if it's cool with you.
    Did he have a crank pulley as well?

    Must be quite a beast if it jumped right back out again. Reminds me of the old GTO commercial with a tiger under the hood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWQue8XTUDg

    Motor mounts-done. Cross memebr-done. Frame straightened-done. Engine square but offset to the driver side? Check.
    I need to bend my brake pedal to clear the bell housing though.

    Pics maybe tomorrow :)

    Ride hight, kinda like it without fenders.....naaaaaaaaaaw
    My hood fell and bent right at the seam, I'll have to fix it. Also the driver side light looks like a wandering eye. Notched the headlight buckets and it sprung the spring. LOL.
