Thanks John! Only 7 weeks left?? Dang- I think it will be ready for the dunes, and you are more than welcome to take it out to break it in :) All we'd have to do is find someone to tow it out there...

John - I call shotgun!


Jer - excellent tube work buddy! I’m glad to see some extra head room out back; don’t want to have any incidents like in the rubi and brotts extremely tall relatives (or is it I’m just really short)?

This K5 is going to rule the dunes or anything else it rolls over!

Thanks man, well I didn't do any tube work on Valentine's day, did that stuff the days before. Last night I did get the rear down tubes double plated and bolted to the body so I can run my outriggers to the frame rails. I have four of those to do, and the 10 point cage basic structure will be complete.

I'm glad at least you and John will be having fun in this beast while I'm at home changing diapers haha.

Thanks guys, we're really happy that they're doing so well - sorry Jay I'm not selling the K5 haha. It's convenient that it can sit three in the back though isn't it? :) By design!

Should be, my wife got readmitted to the hospital Saturday and has had two surgeries since then with another tomorrow. We should be home Thursday though so I'll give you a shout.

Default Update 5-16-08

Thanks to my sister in law for helping with the kids, my father in law and I were able to get the last two tubes in on the cage and check that off the list completely. I just have to take apart the dash and unbolt the seats so I can get the rest primered.









It's moving along again :)

Updated to-do list:
-Coilover mount tubes to frame
-Finish cage work inside
-Mount seats
-Fab dash and maybe a console
-Spare tire mount
-Tube work for front sheetmetal
-Radiator mounting and fan
-Bare bones wiring
-Fire up and systems check
-Replace distributor, cam, heads, timing set, seals
