Huh, I can't see the pics...
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!
And I realized it's been a year since I caught myself on fire.... Hehe
And made a new handle for the winch
Man time flys!!
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.
Put some sex appeal on the front end too
All I got now...
I dont know if its the angle of the pic but the belts dont appear to be lined up between the alt and the water pump. Might wanna check that out, if they are off your asking for some problems...damhik
They are off. just haven't adjusted the new bracket yet.
sammy love your build! i would love better pics of the passanger side of your warn winch. have one just like it but missing the brake. I need to fab one for mine. your help would be much appreciated.
Sure, no problem, I'll get em in the...tomorrow... i probably won't be up in the morning, haha!
What are you missing? the brake or the handle?
LOL I didn't even take my own advice!!!!!!!!!!!

And I'll try and keep this thread up to date in HERE:
Slowly....Need to rebuild the front frame horns now.
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
I have a water pump pulley here for ya, grabbed it from Dad's.
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?
Hey it was in!
Then it came right back out!
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.
