You can do it! The last stretch is always the hardest but it will be worth it!

Yup... after I moved, I spent soo much time remodeling and building the house that I never got around my getting my shop setup. The shop is HUGE with 2 2 car bays, and a seperate machining room and another storage room. I finally got the electrical panel wired and a few plugs setup so now I can start welding and doing other work.

hopefully I will have pics of the cruiser doing work up pretty soon.

You wouldn't believe the small things that kept this thing from running. Luckily, we were able to trouble shoot and cure them and now the end is in sight.

This list is short. I'm guessing that we can have it driving around the yard in a week or two. Motor just needs to be tuned a little (timing mainly), steering bled and some gauges hooked up. Then probably a few cans of paint and off to shake-down city. Assuming that the Transmission works, that is

Not worried about the trans (I have a great trans builder). I am worried about the t-case though hahahahahaha

That wiring was some thing else!! Not sure how the last guy made it run with it.
You should have seen the trans when I checked it out!! Case was blown out, sprags and clutches were gone. its should be good to go now but it's Dima so who knows what could happen.

Well, it's all buttoned up now and runs well. Probably better than any crawler Dima has had in the past ten years I'll do some more cleanup on the wiring and it will be good forever.

Good to hear about the Transmission. And the plumbing on the truck looks factory!!! So bit by bit, little by little it's getting done.
