Tom, I guess there is no time like the present( do I have a choice?) Alcans are ordered (thanks for the part number by the way) Atlas 2 5.0 sitting at my house, Dana 60's HP front and rear with ARB's, Chevy power 350 as a mule engine mild HP for now, 300 Plus, I decided to go with a SM 420 because I have 4 in the shop, parts wont be a problem, Allied beadlocks with 44 TSL's, and the build is under way, I wanted to get a little further in the process before I posted so thanks for the shove , It's all I can do to four link the thing but that would mean going backwards, as for when it will be done?? we'll be breaking it in in the snow

Scott

What I was looking for was a all purpose rig that would hold up to abuse, just good old reliabilty, I look at Tom's (Gunmetalcruz's) rig as one that get's wheeled more than most and holds up very well, I think buggy's are cool but at this point it's not my bag, most say go auto, I'm kind of old school, autos are nice but more complex, let me see you bump start an auto, So for this rig I'm going with a stick, I'll post pic's soon

Here are a few pics of the 65 build that we just started, in the process of grinding to bare metal, welding all holes and getting the body ready for paint

The tub was fairly rust free

Removing all the paint by grinding to bare metal, finish it off with a self etching primer

That's a really nice start,
But We were hoping for the pics of the 63 build up, with the 60s and 44s??????
At least I was...

And what year is that dark blue Heep parked in front of the 65 in that first picture????

The dark blue heap is a maroon BMW 740, I do have to find ways to fund these projects.

I left my camera battery charger in Canada (drank too much beer) Brand new camera too....Damn!

I'll get some on the 63 soon since it will be finished before

Call me a newb

Sorry Guys, not much time to post on the thread these days.

We have the tub at the painter and everything else is ready to fall into place, picking up a front d60 this week and the 14 bolt is ready to go

Been kind of busy with my kids sports, Seattle next week then off to vancouver and hopefully NY in July

Looking back on it, I should have had Derek at Trent Fab build the damn thing, we would be wheelin right now.
