Yes, yes it does.

I won't be doing any laps until I have the rest of it buttoned up. I need to tune it quite a bit, I also need to install the O2 sensor. But it starts like that every time.

They fit on the lower part of the windshield where it meets up with the body(held them in place). Not the best fitting item, but I haven't installed them yet so I'm going to hold off judgment until I see the final fitment. I have never liked the pass side arrangement, so I'm going to skip that ~ it'll probably die on a rock anyway.

The SS2 mirriors the light line dealers sale are just Heep CJ mirrors with a different bracket to mount them to the windsheld. I had them on my Terra for awhile untill i rolled it. When i put the Terra back together i didn't buy another set since they where kind of hard to see out of.

I'm only planning on putting the driver side one on ~ I figure it'll keep the Scout legal ~ I really don't like the way the pass one works ~ I know its stock, but it just seems a little wierd. So I'm going to be putting on the driver one, we'll see how long it'll last.

More bling.

The steering wheel is your standard 760 Grant, cheapo ~ but nice. The little thingy next to it is a pinless quick release... diggin' it.

Basically its like a cam-lock system, squeeze the ring and the wheel pops off. Squeeze it again and it goes back on and locks down. Obviously not recommended for street applications since you can pull the wheel off without thinking about it.


Putting it on.





Its just a touch smaller than the stock wheel

No, I haven't died, neither has Rusty. We're sitting here and waiting.

Actually, I test flexed it, and found that despite of having the SAW's 8" away from the tires at ride-height, the tires will come in and RUB the body of the shocks at full flex.

Not just that, but when flexed and turned, the tires will rub the front tube work. ~ Frankly, I'm going to cut all the front tube work off and start again. Yes, I now, but I don't want to run it the way it is. and if I do, I'll do nothing but make excuses for it. Which I don't want to do.

Sorry guys, nothing else to report.

Batteries died on the camera.

Actually, Dan isn't posting pictures and he's making more progress than I am, so I figure if I don't post pictures, I'll get more done!

Here we go.

Despite over 6" of clearance between the shocks and the tire, the tire will RUB the shocks at full stuff if the other side is completely drooped out ~ and it doesn't have the second spring on it yet.



Further, when stuffed and turned, it hits the front tube work. As you can see, I cut the tube work away to make sure it doesn't hit the tire.


With that amount of trimming, I'm going to cut the tube work away and redo it.

If things go as they should, I may be moving the shop, and Rusty needs to go on to a garage. So it needs to be done QUICK (its kinda stressfull). Yes, we may be moving the shop again. This time it's to a new house ~ That is, if the freaking realtor gets out of my way (we don't use realtors, we find a house and offer $$ to the owner). This one wants a 1% commission for her....uh.....*work* She didn't find us, we found the house, now take a hike already.

I saw Dan's computer last night ----- it's an itsy bitsy Blackberry - so I think getting posts from him at all is a bonus. The thing is smaller than my digital camera. Between my fat fingers, flying tools, grease and hammers I'd break a Blackberry in a matter of minutes if I took it into my garage...

So have you driven it with the big wheel and then the small wheel? I was thinking about going to a smaller wheel, but not that small. I just don't want to get into a constant over correcting situation.
I do drive mine up to 80 MPH on the highway thats why I was asking. At 82 and over I start to get some tire shake for some reason.

I'd lower the bumpstops and run it. I like to limit the front up travel. Mine are set at 3" and the poli compresses another inch. With the bump stops right under the frame you should get just about full stuff before rubbing anything... Or at least that's what it looks like in the pics.

I think I'm going to keep the shock hoops as they are, and just move the shocks in on different mounts. Bump stops for sure ~ But I can't hang with having to run cut-up tube. It won't take long to replace it, so I"m going to cut the outer tubes out and run a hoop like most guys ~ I'll have to make it different some other way.

Shadowman: Running full Hydro, so I don't think 80mph is going to be a good idea. but I'll find out what she'll do sooner than later. The new wheel is 13 3/4" (I think), the old is 17" or so. So the new wheel isn't that small, its the same size as the one I ran on Snoopy ~ it was find on the street, highway, rocks.
