  1. Pulled the quick change out of my car today. Off to speedway for some upgrades. Going to an open center diff setup.
  2. Looks much better. I like how you tied in the rear with the plate.
  3. Wow!! She’s sharp and smooth!! In the second picture on the ridge, looks like it’s super soft but the ridge line is solid.
  4. Too hot out there now and in August. Halloween is usually the first big weekend at dumont kicking off the start of the winter dune season. If the weather has cooled off some before then people will start making trips on the weekend. Dune season lasts into March- May depending on how quickly the weather heats up.
  5. Taking my car to a shop to do some tin work. I’m excited to see what they can do.
  6. Ok time for an update to this ad! Things that have been fixed replaced or updated Car has been detailed and polished and looks great! Engine oil and filter are new New coolant New aluminum polished radiator reservoir New vacuum lines New gear oil in reverse box New cable on reverse shifter A few new heims on front end to replace the worn ones Shampoo'd seats New gas New radiator hard line New steering wheel quick release Added a concoction of radiator seal and coolant to the tires, they no longer go flat Rebuilt brake pedals and polished reservoirs Polished light bar New coolant hoses Re-routed the turbo drain line to oil pan, this had previously caused the motor to smoke at idle, its no longer smoking at all There's probably some more stuff I am forgetting but the car is ready to hit the dunes. It's such a nice car and rides great. I hate to have to sell it but that's the way things go. You won't be disappointed with this car. Walk around A little rip Backing up
  7. Wanting to pull the quick change out and make some changes. Would prefer to have a pro do some aluminum work but need to take care of this first. One of these wiring gurus will are on the want list too but not ready for that yet. Working tomorrow.
  8. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
