Ok, I'm back from Peru and over my food poisoning (ugh). Got in the garage yesterday to get er done, but you guys know how that goes. I have already replaced the front beam. Figured I would slap new brake hoses and wheel cylinders on it and be good to go. That is NEVER the case as you all know ( as i'm learning). All the tie rod ends need to be replaced along with the ball joints. Brake shoes were pretty worn and the hardware has been rusted solid. I'm hoping I can clean up the drums and have them turned. Here are a few pics where I left off last night.

Rusty Parts I pulled off.. After wrenchin on the new front beam

I'm no expert.. but this doesn't look good. Are these hard to change??


Motor will get put in a little later

Rusty??


New shocks in the near future

Plans are to change all the end links as well

I did get the new mounts and padded strap on. Hoping this will help with those pesky broken mounts.

I will be pickin up some more parts a little later this week. Tryin to get this thing ready for the next run Cool

Sorry Guys, been helpin my bro move his stuff in. Haven't really had time for Booger. I'm hopin to have a little more space in the garage to "play" a little later today. Plans are to get it rollin under its own power, actually to STOP. The motor runs fine. I'm pretty hard on my stuff so looks are never important. I'm usually happy (lucky??) if its runnin and the wheels still roll. Future plans... mabey upgrade the suspension a little. After the suspension is done.. better protection (rollcage, seats, harness ). The motor I would like to bump up a little later. The 1600 runs pretty good, I just want/need to make sure everything else is up to par before the car goes any faster. I'll get some more pics posted later. It's hard to get a full shot of the car when its still stuck in the garage. I have a few of the buggy in action about 1 year old, but still pretty cool pics. I'll see if I can dig em up.
