Sadly it was Bud Light, but it was free to me (G/F bought it) So I won't complain

T/A is in my dad's barn ready for spring, we re-built the motor in it last fall, spun it around the block a few times and the new cam woke it up a little but nothing outrageous.

I have comandeered the neighbors garage for this build since they don't use it, warms up nicely too with my bullet heater, and I only have to walk 50' to get to it 99GrandTJ and I have been working on it pretty much on weekends with the goal of taking it down the street By JAN 1st. (It won't have a windshield, paint, or wiring or twin sticks installed though. I am hoping to find a stock soft-top winshield frame with glass though as I cannot use the hard top windshield frame without the hard top.

Basically parts I don't have for it right now are:

Wiring Harness $112 + shipping
Spare tire bracket $20ish + shipping
Tires 34x9.5 TSL new $650ish
Paint $50ish
Lettering $40ish
Taillights $50ish
Guages $300
Brake M.C. $30ish

I am hoping to put it on the road by next August 1st, obviously not everything will be done (IE guages, tires likely)

Any chance you can do me a small favor? Can you measure how wide the tub is? Like say outside to outside around the cargo area?

Mine is 1 hour away in the barn, working on some calculations and needed that number.


Looking good! What size radiator do you need to fit?

I can measure it when I get home for you do you want the length from firewall tot he rear too?

radiator I need is 16-17" tall, and 17-21 wide depending on if I want to rip out the original rad supports off the top of my head.

I dropped the grill off at a awesome radiator shop I have used before, I should have a quote today on a custom if the radiator builder didn't call in sick again (he was sick when I dropped it off yesterday)

Sure, if you can do it easy enough. Grab firewall to grill, too, if you are out there.


Silly as it sounds, I'm doing some scale-model mocking right now. Was sitting in the family room, and looking at the Nylint on the floor. So soon enough the wheels are off and I'm trying to mock up a chassis with balsa wood and tape :tonka:

I'm going up after christmas and will measure everything good then, but a few quick numbers would help.

thanks!

80" from rear to firewall, firewall is ~2" deeper at the motor, roughly 30.5" form firewall to front of grill.
