Tempering For Transport

With all the modifications done, the truck was loaded up on the rainy, wet morning of April 2nd for the start of the journey. Read the rest of this entry »

Wheelie Machine!

With the RTV and JB Weld solid, I disconnected the stock BST40 carb and promptly drop kicked it into the nearest trash can. I then had two more adjustments to make as I hooked up the carb.

Power!

The past week was very productive. I had my local shop install the new headers and cats and button all that up. The result is awesome. I don't have a video/sound clip yet but I will get one soon. IMG_2789 Read the rest of this entry »

Something to Pull

This morning, with the bumper solid as a rock, I went and picked up the trailer and a gallon of latex white paint. I've got half the inside painted. E-tracks are ordered and on their way as well. Read the rest of this entry »

New Rear Bumper

I went to work with a grinder and flap disc to clean it all up and prep it for paint. Note that the gussets from the bumper to the bracket arms are too large and I did need to cut them each down three inches so that the frame could clear. 20140629_163556 Read the rest of this entry »
