Yes I am a smartass. People who type without proper spelling and grammar annoy me. Shows a lack of brains.

Agreed. When I was a heavy truck mechanic I'd spend all day being greasy, and working on my own junk, which I enjoyed, became a chore. I just didn't want to spend all weekend greased up.

Snoop, the updates can't come fast enough!

The reason Rusty isn't done is simple, at the end of the day it takes a lot of effort to 'get-r-done' when I'd rather go home and sleep.

FYI: Today I'm having a crappy day, so excuse the negative sediment, but you need to know its not all fun and games in this arena.
A-fucking-men to that. Oh well its still fun most of the time

Snoopy you blasted that 60 If I had known that I would have given you a rusty ugly fawker. That had about the sweetest patina of any midwest 60 I have run across

I think I'd get the link-mob from Led and the gang if I didn't run Indy for the first trip. That would be this trail:


Its a tradition with Led to test run all HIS rigs there ~ yes that's the FIRST run they go on. Since its only about 30 minutes away from my front door, and has a driveable dirt road all the way to its entrance ~ it also makes it the easiest to tow home from.

A con-run would be awesome. I know you wacko's in Cali have a con trip sometime in the fall, so maybe that. I do plan on having some spare time this fall ~ Led and I are already planning a run to Avalanche Ranch, a 'take-2' trip to AZ. Its a personal goal to get to the Hammers and the Con sometime.

This one wasn't rusty? Holy heck, the sand blasting busted through thinner parts of the rotors! And the dust-covers resembled rusty's original rear floor! J/K.

I really do appreciate getting me one of the cleaner ones, but I needed to do some clean up work on the pumpkin to mount the upper link mount to. However, when I got my stuff placed, I realized that I'd have to grind/sand on some of the contours of the pumpkin ~ and a place or two that my 4.5" angle grinder couldn't possibly get into.

So, I had the hubs & rotors, caliper brakets, what you see of the axle/knuckle assembly blasted to save me some time and headache. Cost me $60 and it gave me a nice place to weld to.

Talk about over-kill ~ My machinist has been getting every last part of his axles blasted for powdercoating and zinc plating ~

I'll be honest, I think it came out freakin' killer. I really like being able to touch the thing and leave smudges rather than getting them.

That's a friendly flipoff, as evidenced by the in the middle. You sound like you wanted or or or

Ok, back to tech.

It looks like you use square tube for your link mounts on the frame. What about the axle mounts? I'm not sure if I want to try to figure it out myself or just buy a kit or what.

Any updates?

I see. That looks easier than trying to weld separate tabs on and keeping it all straight. What if I just want to buy those mounts and do the links myself?

Funny you say it that way ~ I literally tore the wiring out of Rusty when I removed the dash ~ tore it out of the whole rig ~ the only thing left is about 15 wires all 1" long hanging on the starter!

It feels so good to do that. The 50410 wiring harness is a 8-curcuit system that controls EVERYTHING. They retail for $139 from Summit. There aren't any fuses ~ which could be a problem if you sever a wire ~ but its cheap and worked AWESOME on Snoopy.

Check it out:

Push-button start can easily be swapped to a key ignition (which I did on Snoopy), it runs the blinkers, headlight/parking lights, horn, fans (I wire the fan switch as a high/low), fuel pump, and I run the York compressor on the "shocks" setting.

Frankly, everything you need for a street-worthy rig in a box. Wiring is so freakin' easy it isn't even funny ~ each wire is color-coded so all you have to do is run it to where it needs to go and attach. Since you're only working with 8-10 wires, it takes about an hour.

If you don't like the non-fused thing, then you can get the ultra-bling version with curcuit breakers:


or the almost-ultra-bling fused one


Prices top out at $309 ~ but I'm a cheap so I went with the ultra-mega-cheap version and I pray for no shorts!

Maybe I should add that Rusty's EFI system will be run on fuses ~ just in case

Lets think about this for a second. How long has it been since I started this thread? 8 months - 1 year?!

I've got the same problem, gotta save just like everyone else

I scrolled back a ways but I'm sure not far enough - you using coils or coilovers in the rear?

Nice kit, just checked it out on your site - would be even nicer if it included coil buckets, coils, etc..
