But trust me I have been busy, but thats not important right now haha
So, this is my recently aquired 1988 Suzuki Carry van, got it cheapish, blown head gasket, no wof but stilled regged, has been a service vehicle for something. so probaly thrashed prime time haha
But still, will be mean, so far have pulled off head and found that the water has been pushing past blown BHG and corrded head into the cylinders, so sorting that out now
other small issues currently include driver window reg stuffed, so pulled that out today, and welded up the stripped teeth on the gear, next will be to sort out the play in the spindle and reshape the teeth
Will be max awsome
so heres some pics, will get pics of work tomorroe

preferably some jeah booyds, wide steels will suffice though. make sliding door into gullwing to clear them to.
EDIT: did I hear someone say van nats?

Cam is picking me up a head of CXGpwr this weekend so hopefully its better than the one i have, and if so will get checked and decked
Also the window winder on the drivers side was shot, so pulled it apart, found flogged out spindle bush, which had caused the teeth on the gear to flatten
So welded up the teeth and will reshape with grinder and files
And get bush remade
Welding them Up I clamped a flat peice of alloy on the back to keep shape, as mig steel wont weld well to alloy. and then flipped over and Oxy weled the other side to get heat and good penration on then
And this yuck engine bay

Cam just dropped in the new head from john, its over 9000 times better than the original
So will rip it apart tomorrow and get it checked and decked

Anyway dropped head off and looks like its just a hole in the core plugs that has caused the problem, apprently pretty common, will find out tomorrow
Anyway, just been plotting away at the window reg today
And would be so keen on 12's but mega HARD to find etc

Simple as, yeah might just buy those 12.5 comerical rims and tires for like $200, they roll pretty low profiles Really
