Ordered the rest of my rod ends for the front links

Really hoping to get coilovers this weekend so I can start test fitting them in the rear once I figure out where my link placement ends up.

Work has been having me work open to close this week everyday, no time for buggy . Pay isn't even any better then any other week .

I'm heading down today. I'll give you a call tomorrow, but I'll be vehicle less so I'll have to figure out a way to get the press and other thing over to you.

Mounted my seats....ended up using my coilover tabs I bought .




I also removed the clocking ring on the tcase, turns out in stock form it still clears my rails and the bottom of the belly. Now I just need to rework my crossmember a bit to clear the output, but it made the floor and seat mounts a whole lot easier to deal with.

Ordered up my steering column mount for my orbital from psc and my steering wheel from speedway motors. Was really hoping to get more done today but i think i am getting sick . Thought it better to get a days rest instead. With an unemployed wife, if i dont work bills dont get paid.

Well decided to skip RandV today, first time missing news year day since they started doing it. But decided the funds and time was better spent in the garage. I actually feel like I accomplished something today.

Probably a good thing you didn't make it up to R&V. You probably would be putting a motor in the explorer if you did make it up. It was slick and had to use lots of wheel speed and momentum to climb the hills.
