You mean you aren't going to be like all of my professors that make us call them Dr. so-and-so when they teach physics, English, chem, or the like? Good for you, and congrats.

No. I hate that myself. I work with people like that. Drives me nuts. Sure it's an accomplishment but that's not how I am. My students call me Mr. S and they will continue to. I won't even change my business cards. Actually I won't even officially tell my district. Unfortunately in today's education environment in this state, higher education limits your job possibilities.

Good for you. I hate people that have that kind of ego.

(except at the mustache run where they have to call me Your Highness Mr. Scorekeeper. )

hahahaha I wish I could have made it to that.

Have a physics teacher up here like that. I called him Mr. X and he corrected me in a meeting and said I should call him Dr. X.

Whatever. LOL

Well here is some clearance and other testing. New changes are mostly looking good.

Rear is looking good on full stuff. Probably going to add bump stops eventually.



The front works good but going to have to add bump stops for sure right away. At full stuff the steering ram now hits the frame.

Measured, overall it ended up 2.5 inches lower. Happy with it.






Also cut some foot holes in the side.

Maybe in America it's different. Here it is customary that if you invite someone to go wheelin, you arrange things.

I can't remember the wheelbase. I have measured it 4 times so I would know and forgot what it was every time. Sucks getting old.

Weight is about 2950 with full tank, spare tire, recovery gear and me in it.

Fawk...I would have to cut the front end off it to fit a v8 in. There isn't even enough room under the hood for the brake booster, brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder.

That's why the brake booster and master were relocated sideways under the center of the dash and the clutch master is under the dash on the far left side backwards facing the driver.
