    loaded up the panels for the bed, cab corner, and rear drivers side fuel filler to be welded in by my welder. Will be dropping off tomorrow. Hopefully not longer than 2 weeks (exhaust shop that does stuff on the side). Otherwise I get to listen to the wife bitch.....well that gonna happen anyway, but I don't need more of it lol.

    May have to use this one to shut her up: I got a threshold for the abuse I'll take. And you're crossing it. I'm a race car and you got me in the red. Just know, it's fuckin' dangerous to be drivin' a race car when it's in the red. It could blow.

    Name that tune.....

    Took the 87 on a road trip, stopped in lower Alabama to see my mom, went out to the old family cemetery/farm, then headed down to Seagrove beach, just west of Panama City Beach. Put about 900 miles on it from Thursday to today. No issues whatsoever with it. Even got it over 95mph a few times, thanks to overdrive and 3.08 gears lol 92F19F4B-4A43-4960-8DBA-1C94D560CE57.jpeg A6FC965B-A2C4-46FA-897F-3E2479E1F7E9.jpeg C634CA0F-EE1F-4BBE-9043-7991F17829C3.jpeg 7FBFC750-5A3D-45E0-B18D-E1816D572E67.jpeg

    Did you check the oil? Try tightening the TBI mounting bolts? Intake bolts?
    Does it hold coolant lol?

    Who says you can't have fun with your parts truck!?!? everyone who has seen this actually believed it.... it's a sad world we live in haha could've got away with murder at this point

    Jimmy slowly coming along. I should be working on getting it to run better (timing, radiator) but instead i threw some AC stuff on. was just so excited!

    Mini square (S10) today. Have had super dim dash lights in the mini since i got it, never knew really why until @bucket suggested a burned out dimmer switch. BTW after swapping gauge clusters it didnt change. So i ordered another dimmer from rock auto and popped it in today. Heres the results before n after. Thanks andy!:happy160: $10 fix! :rockit:

    I recently finished a Blue interior, here’s some inspiration 1E661D0E-C0C9-479C-AA8D-4665F02DCBE8.jpeg 7C100374-4F0B-42C0-A14D-1A6DFAB3C025.jpeg 700F3952-EA73-427D-8E75-E4EAEC5F18A9.jpeg I raised the door pocket to be even with the arm rest (just personal preference) and can easily be moved back to factory position.

    Oh, Man !
    That looks awesome. Great job on it.
    I gotta ask, did you paint the plastic trim? If so, what paint did you use?
    It matches really well. I tried the Dupli-Color "med blue" and it's a little lighter.

    Definitely inspirational !!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Picked up a pair of free doors on Craigslist. They are rusted out but the mirrors aren't too bad, and they are painted not stainless, which is what I need for the CUCV. Saved the glass, handles, and regulators. The shells will go to the scrap yard with an old bug that I scrapped out.
