definately not... only lil rich would do that and then have a floppy noodle suspension because his shocks are mounted 1/2 way down the upper link arms and it has 24" of industry revolutionizing travel

This will be very conventional in design and appearance, 14" travel shocks are plenty and the rest will be your average "jeep" buggy...

Thanks, I guess I havent thought about that much... Depending on what level of completeness I figure it would range between $3500 and $4500. Half of that is materials.

I have been swamped with school lately, pretty much 2 weeks of finals and now I have a 15 page report due tomorrow that I'm not looking forward to. Last weekend I didnt have any power and managed to get a couple things done earlier in the week. I came back to work after class yesterday to finish up some design work. I'll have a few more hours into it today but I should have another sizeable amout of stuff to send to Tab for cutting and when that comes back things should go quickly.

x10 on pricing info -

monitoring build expense as you go is smart reguardless -

seems like when people put out build numbers there either way over or way under estimated and therefore useless.


nice work btw, its looking good

I got my Branik high steer arms yesterday and they are amazing! 3/4" thick chromoly, machined out to my design and they are a work of art in themselves. If anyone wants high steer arms go to Branik, seriously, you cant beat the price or quality. They'll even make your custom design for less than others sell their kits for! I'll post up pictures when I get home tonight.

I've been working on the fuel system lately, I'll post pictures when I get it all together, it'll be a work of art hidden in the tank.

this is my super bad ass fuel tank that has way too much work and time into it. 4 switching pickups feeding an airtex E8248 fuel pump with a corvette pressure regulator and filter, all in the tank using 3/8" hard line and compression fittings. I need to run 2 wires to a military style cannon connector that will seal to the tank. I will have 2 wires to the tank and one -6 pressure line from the tank to the engine. my goal is to make it so simple looking that it looks unfinished.

originally the tank came with blue -8 connectors and a crappy excuse for a pick up tube. I decided that I wanted black fittings for all of my AN connections since i was already swapping from -8 to -6, it was a little tricky but I got it to work. I searched all over and couldnt find a -6 roll over valve that was black. I bought a -6 bulkhead in black and did some light modifications to make a -6 roll over valve out of it.

the rest are some random pictures of things I have been killing some time on until the next batch of plates come in from Tab at True North Designs.

and a couple full size images for people to look at....





anyone have any goode ideas on how to clean up the cowl area at the door bar/A pillar area? I have a couple ideas but they take away from a clean look. I really dont like the 90 degree corner right there but I dont have much of a choice with the hood on there.

Why all the bling in the gas tank? Good pickup at any angle maybe?

Oh, and Stan is cross eyed right now.

yes, after running out of fuel on the side of the road in west branch with a quarter of a tank I made certain that it will never happen again. I should be good for 90 degrees in any direction with 1/4 of a tank or less.. I need to address the lubrication system next but I think I'll wait until it's moving first. something about a never ending project comes to mind when I keep adding things to the list.
