Went and picked up the samurai body and frame. Not in as good of shape as I thought. It is solid rust wise for a MI samurai but the tub is in rough shape and is dented up quite a bit. But it has a title so that's a big plus. Going to mix my samurai and that one together to make a slightly nicer one that is road legal. Might make a samurai trailer like Tim Hardy's out of what is left over.

I just meant the trailer, not the samurai.

Since my nickname is Shrek these days, I decided to name the samurai Fiona. Not really any other updates, it still works, my tires don't hold air for more than a day though.

I don't think that actually counts as holding

I don't think it does either. But they are older than me so I think they are past their expected life

I am too, hopefully my quad sells quick so I can finish it and make it street legal.

Broke down the tires today and beadsealed them, they hold air now.

This is the only Rig Build I am interested in these days. Need more updates. Its the biggest little Samurai in the game. More interior room and head room than a JK. Kinda similar to the Mystery Spot.

I haven't done much to it because I have no money. It's just been sitting around.

That sounds too official. I meant like an Echo or Poulan Pro.

Will a craftsman 32cc leaf blower work?
Or is that too much power?

I might split off half the air flow to blow into the bellhousing to create a fan cooled clutch, in order to handle the double excessive power.
