Looking good Justin, thanks for the update.

Regarding the pic upload....try just doing 3 or 4. I've run into issues myself when trying to load 5 or 6 large mb pics....I'm thinking there is a limit on how much can be uploaded and compressed by the software.

Thanks guys.

Good call on the pics Duncan. I tried three at a time and it worked. On the one upload that did work, three of the pics were off my Iphone and three were off the camera. So how about the rest of the pics?

I framed the floor in with 2x2x1/4" angle, it`s welded to the cage and tied to the frame. In between the angle and the original floor is 1/8" plate that I cut and fit to fill the gaps. You can also see how the floor plates bolt down. I drilled and tapped the holes.




wiring is still in the mockup stage also lol.



The radiator hoop I bent up using a buddies pipe bender. Got it on the first try too. The radiator isn`t the look I was going for, but I figured $200 that I would`ve spent on a new Griffin could be better spent somewhere else when I had this one. My plan for a grill at this point is some stainless gravel shaker screen my buddy has in his junk yard.



Windstar fans. How about that ugly a** power steering pressure hose? Probably gonna redo that with AN. Nobody wants to recrimp it if I cut and shorten it. And it bugs me lol.







I built the exhaust with goodies scavenged out of my buddies "save" pile, plus two new mufflers. I`ve been wanting to try these Summit one chambers, which are clearly Flowmaster one chambers. But they have a different sound than my last set of Flowmasters. I suspect because they don`t have a sound baffle my Flowmasters did. Still not sure how I feel about them yet.







It`s been a long time coming, but I`m pretty happy with how things are coming with it. I`ve only had it up to about 30 or 40 mph, but my custom driveshafts don`t seem to vibrate or shake, The DIY beadlock wheels don`t
shake or do anything stupid, and once I get it buttoned up it should be awesome lol.

Love it!

Awesome project, glad to see you getting close to the "finish line", although we all know project are never really done .

I won't lie though, I got a little nervous with that power steering line so close to the drive belt.

Time for a little update.

I`d left the old girl outside last summer and it didn`t like that. My questionable junkyard alternator set up, and the fuel pump switch decided it didn`t like water either. And it had water in it with no antifreeze. And winter showed up early last fall. I got it in the garage and got it warmed up and put some antifreeze in it and left it at that.

In April I picked up a new alternator and threw that on. The radiator was also leaking, I thought it had froze and spread the seams, but it turns out it`s the petcock.

And I got busy on the grill/radiator protector.



About the time I cut up the shaker screen it turns out it wasn`t as straight as I thought it was lol.



I managed to get it a little straighter. Figured the bolts would do the rest lol.



Here it is in the daylight.





And another for good measure just cause I love it lol.



It`s been blocked in the garage by the truck I was tearing apart for the body for Big Blue. I finally had the time and ambition to finish that project last Sunday. Yesterday we had a birthday party for me so I moved all the stuff that had accumulated around it and backed it out so he could be front and center.

And since the grass got mowed Friday for the party and other stuff was done and today was my bday and I felt like having a liesurely day, I wired up the fans and rocked it around the hood. A buddy of mine was around, so he climbed in and we bombed through the woods to his dads place. It was the longest it`s been out and about. I only had to turn the fans on once.

It still doesn`t run right, but it was pretty good today. The only thing that`s changed is a different ignition module and the new alternator. It still has a really bad lean bog when you jump on it, but it`ll run you out of the garage because it`s too rich. I can borrow a known good carb from a guy I know to see if that helps, but we haven`t been able to make our schedules link up. It also used to break up really bad, but I noticed today that getting to 5 or 6,000 rpm wasn`t a problem.

Our 4th of July parade got cancelled so my stepdad is organizing a protest/parade. So I need to get some headlights, taillights and brake lights on it and an ORV sticker. Some wheel cylinders so it has brakes wouldn`t be a bad idea either lol.
