  1. I’ve got to give credit to SandDuneSam for shooting the picture on my phone to add to the forum. I was informed tonight that it was a long walk around so as not to leave footprints in the sand. You see see what I did there with the new site feature

    Absolutely!! Nice to meet you as well.
  3. You would think he’d prefer the other side of the road Maybe it was too rough on that side. Btw the road condition was 100% better than the weekend before except right at the river crossing. Thanks to whoever fixed it up
  4. Pete I don’t see your moon picture in here.

    I put the hood on side burner for now. Hindsight is 20/20 though and I should have just finished it instead of jumping to the dash. I really wanted to take care of the dash first but I got distracted with the hood. Anyway here’s a couple pictures. Still more to do but I like how it’s coming along. Just a lot of work.
  6. Get us some better pictures. Looks like a cool car. I’d like to check it out a little more.
  7. The pictures of the moon you put together is killer!! Nice ride report. I vote for photo of the month February

    Hhmmm. Do you not like the shape or? Or just like to see the motor in the open? For me I want to cut it back so it’s not so far forward. It’s just sitting on there. I was going to put some tape on for different cut lines to shape it some.

    Thought I would update this. I’ve been toying with some aluminum tins for the car. Here’s a couple pictures of what I came up with. Still working on the (hood) still trying to envision it. I am open to thoughts or ideas.
  10. Tom Pro car Tom pro turbo system with blow off valve Ceramic coated ball bearing turbo  Reverse box 930 cv’s King shocks Bead lock wheels Hid light bar Front and rear brakes Jamar pedals, dual reservoir on slider- just rebuilt- Fire extinguisher 3” crow padded belts Razor front tires, awesome turning even without a differential.  Pictures are of the car after rinsing it off. I will update the ad with new pictures when polishing/detailing is done. This car has been in storage and has not seen the sand in 5 years. It is in very good shape. I cleaned out the old fuel and put some fresh stuff in and it fired right up. -The vacuum lines had some dry rot so they have all been replaced. -Currently working on detailing the car and getting the aluminum polished out. This is done. I need to take new pictures. - Reverse box only has a couple of trips on it. It was completely replaced by Tom. The original was built before Tom had his cnc machine and was thought maybe something was off. So he replaced it. Fresh oil in it now. -Auto meter silver gauges. -Sealed sand switches. -All wiring in good shape. No issues. -New agm battery. This thing rips!!! I had forgotten how strong it runs. As soon as boost comes on (which is pretty much immediate) this thing becomes a violent uncaged beast.At the same time it can just be a cruiser if you want to drive it that way too. No lagging turbo to make it undriveable. Frame and panels powder coated. Springs are powdercoated silver. Floor is powdercoated in hammer tone. Rear trailing arms powdered in hammer tone. Artwork done by k-daddy here in Bakersfield. The guy has real talent and it shows. Seats have been detailed with upholstery cleaner and look great! The bad- Car shows minor signs of being run. Some of powdercoat is worn off on the rear trailing arms. Few very minor scratches in high wear areas. Radiator tank cracked on a weld and was repaired with JB weld in the dunes. I plan to rebuild it out of a little thicker aluminum to keep this from happening, but for now that’s the way it is and has been fine since doing it years ago. The front left wheel is bent a little. It was straightened as best possible by hand and has no noticeable input on steering but has a tiny wobble if you look close at it while driving. The turbo is mounted very low due to space limitations. It does not hang down where it would be damaged by bottoming out. It however does not drain the engine oil well back to the sump. This causes the car to smoke at idle. This has never been an issue other than seeing it smoke. Motor is tight. I just got a California vin and am in process of getting the green sticker. If I had the coin I would buy this myself. Unfortunately I am not in a position to do so. I think somebody is going to score. $18,000 obo 661-201-2246 Scott
