So what's everyone workin on over this nice rainy winter?

Personally I haven't had time to work on any of the VWs, been to busy trying to keep the daily drivers running.

On a side note I did get a new daily: A 1989 Ford Bronco 2 4wd, 2.9 V6 and only 82500 original miles.

Been driving mine. Had the motor out before New Years to fix the rear main seal. But other than that just driving it. Lots of duning lately that's about it. This rain sucks! Lol

I worked on the rail ... I did the maintenance ... forgot a few thing the first time.... was not happy with the shims on the passenger side hub.. re did them ... NASTY SHIP GREASE.. took a nasty hit to the armor.. not sure if I can get it off to change the oil... Changing the oil is the last thing I can think of that needs to be done.

On the Baja I started stripping it down and tabbing things out before I send everything off to the power coater.

striped down the RV.. everything is ready to go to the power coater. - got most of the stuff for the air horn in last week. Not happy with the front rack I built last year... Had some time over new years campout to sit and think about it... came up with a plain on the last day we were out there packing up to go home.. Put it to paper when I got back... looks good... (I hope) checked the funds... they look good ... we will see what is left over after the power coater gets his cut.. Going to use bed liner as a bra on the RV.. thinking of using Rhino liner Inc. to do the job.. need to get it done before I put the bumper back on or President day weekend. did not think anyone wanted to see the work .. so I have not posted anything.

.

I have the old class 5 car torn apart to repaint a few things. However, this cold rainy weather has slowed my progress.

finished lifting JINX, progress has been a little slow because of the cold. the car is in the backyard, bleed the new brakes some new tires and it will be a driver then I can start on bumpers and skid plates and a complete rewire.

Hi all,

Sorry i missed the last couple of events, Life just gets in the way sometime.
Car is running good for what it is. Been running up to Wickenburg via the Castle hot springs road then taking the Buckhorn rd around Buckhorn mnt into town. kind of an easy fun ride just to get some dirt time.

Hope to see you in the dirt.

Just installed new new spark plugs, a new belt, changed the oil, installed a new oil pressure switch and also found out that half the bolts were missing from the steering. I'll get new bolts tomorrow and hopefully it won't end up that the threads are stripped.

Replaced my single brake master with a dual setup that has the bias on the pedals instead of the inline setup I had, single master was sucking air and I would loose all my pedal half way through a ride and be using the turn brakes to limp home. I also changed the front shocks from 2.5x12" foa to a 2"x10" fox that required me to cut the shock hoops off and shorten everything up, went out behind pleasant last weekend to test run. Little tuning on shocks and some smaller bore masters that can actually stop the car and I should be good
