  1. I feel like gregs post didn't do Chrome justice- What an awesome day! There were a few issues but would have felt strange if there wasn't. Dunno if i should share my vids here..Feeling insanely pissed off because a few of them have gone missing/been deleted accidentally
  2. @chris r I will judge you if you buy that
  3. jesus christ. they have a bit more steel in them than i realised. be so much easier to just put it on a better chassis.
  4. oh wow, this is awesome
  5. Very cool project. Admittedly i know very little about these things and wheelbase etc but from what i have heard about chassis strength and rust you'd probably be better (mentally and financially) using a later model chassis (like a nissan safari, could use a SWB chassis or chop down a LWB chassis to the perfect length) to give you strong diffs/easily turboed motor etc etc. I love that they made these out of aluminium!
  6. Fuck photobucket. I bought this fuel door assembly off Ali Express and am massively impressed by it. Can't recall the price but around $25 so I expected it to be all plastic- it's actually really high quality powder coated die cast aluminium! The rear of the assembly unbolts and won't be used- it's actually a Jeep Wrangler upgrade part but will sit well in my imaginary deck. Edit. Oh and its spring loaded with a little doofer on the hinge and its light but solid... <3 <3 <3
  7. Nah the plan we all need is 400 a year!
  8. Wow I really appreciate how you guys have unbuttoned panels to fix things properly. How old are ya? Your skills put most of us to shame haha
  9. Damn, killing it! Use antisieze on those stainless bolts too
  10. i did some hammering and glued in the front inside corner then made up and started gluing in the outside front corner.... then my welder went from being AWESOME to being gayyyyyyyyy. Must be new liner time as wire keeps getting stuck and it then wraps around the drive roller.. did it 3 times and i had a ragequit.
  11. I wouldn't try to copy anyone else I think with what you have done virtually ANY color scheme will look great! even if you just buffed and polished the crap out of the current tank. edit.. oh and im no expert but i like the side panels- they always make the bike look more together and finished kinda (just my opinion)... i think they could do with being recessed an inch or two each side tho- could ya cut them down and push them in further?
  12. Awesome I wonder if that area would look better with the rear tank mount/bolts painted black so they kinda dissappear
  13. Just checked out this thread- bloody love the way you think with the cut down gas bottles and leaf sprung front end. Im pretty keen to use some of those bottles for my catch can... love repurpopsing shit like that
  14. Wow not sure why I haven't stayed up to date with this- damn you are good at this rust repair stuff. Where did you get those neat magnets from?
  15. Bolted in the new pedal assembly with some rivnuts through firewall. It had to be mounted far higher than expected so I need to either make a new gas pedal arm or use a longer pad. No biggie and I deserve the bother for poor planning haha. But aside from that I'm happy as..it will work well.
