jinxspot, the guys helping me with this build only do street rods and they just about soiled themselves when the 404's showed up. Definitely an elephant in the room moment. I plan on running my 404's on the street and these boxes will help keep heat down and V8 power. I plan on running these at some point and trying to track down the fast gears when I go through the axles. Also thinking about converting the drain plugs to a Fumoto type valve and running an oil pump/filter. That way there is only 1 service point instead of 4. Read somewhere the portals need to be serviced every 5000 miles due to the small amount of oil they hold?

Its a type of punch. The term is called "end forming" and this particular shaping on the end of the stay is referred to tube flattening. Not sure what kind of access you have to tubing tools but using a dedicated die set, this process combines three separate operations, flattening the end of the tube, trimming the end corners, and piercing a hole pattern for fastening the tube.

Thank you for the extra information. Where did the hood slide piece come from as well?

Nice build.. maybe it was answered above but I'll ask anyway..

Why did you widen and stretch the body?

When I had my wagon in high school it had 33" tires with rancho 2.5 springs and was very top heavy in off camber situations.

The number one reason I widened the body was to have the tires fit in the wheel wells. Whenever these wagons are lifted the tires always stick out and rub on the panels.

The stretch was to put more space between my face and the windshield, and additional clearence for the people climbing in the back. By widening and streching it also increases the footprint of the wagon increasing the stability in cornering. Original wheel base was 105" and is now 118"

The black hood slide piece or prop is machined out of delrin. Not sure if you are familiar with that but it is a dense plastic that gaining popularity for its versatility. It is custom to this application and was shaped with a router based on the geometries of the prop.

D Rat, Thanks for your interest in my build. Will be persuing the wood paneling in the recesses. I have come up with a way to do it just haven't decided on woods. It would be great to use teak because of its outdoor durability and density. The body will be painted British Racing Green with a cognac color interior. The panels will be a maple color. Since the recesses aren't very deep I plan on using a stainless t bolt countersunk and will cover them with a dark ebony plug. There are a lot of other details such as a glueing the panels to the body...but I'd rather be able to take them off to restain/coat them. Also thinking of routing a channel into the back of the wood to have a rubber gasket for isolation similar to the mag hytech diff covers.

I hear ya on the ambition. I have had many starts and stops and budgeting nightmares. My problem right now is firming up my ideas and committing to the chassis setup. Going to be taking a saw to the frame to get the axles to fit around the engine/steering keeps me edgy. There is a cool build on a commando in the hardcore section where they hacked up the finished frame to get it to sit right. It worked out great. Located in San Diego.

My plans are to paint it look like wood, keep the tin woody look and that tube frame commando is what gave me the idea to cut the floors out of my wagon, I have no idea what ever became of it .
If its ok I would like to stop by next time over there, you have some talent.

DRat, Gotta love the old power wagons. In stock form our wagons were dainty compared to those beasts. The green wagon is very close to the direction I'm going. Will be adding 2-4 inches to the front fenders once the axles are burned in.

Thanks Pete/Blue Skies! You'll have to send me a link to your builds. Believe me I have to take Rx's to keep the excitement down sometimes...and there were humbler times...That's what its all about.

Jeepster/Manx hybrid

Putting some ideas together for this build for next year. Picked up a nice basket case for $500 and plan to make it a long travel 2WD TTB/SBC V8/700R.

A bend in the road

To all friends, family an followers of this thread I regretfully have to report that my little can of whoopass is going into the Dr. tomorrow to see if she has ovarian cancer. For the past year we have been trying to figure out what her ailment was and this is where we're at.

Although you can understand this will take precedence to everything I'm close to unleashing on this project...Don't be dismayed. You can get a foretaste in the mecedes forum of whats in store and will post any updates as soon as we have a diagnosis.

John 15:1–5 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit; for apart from Me you can do nothing.”

The vinedresser is never nearer the branches then when he is pruning them. David Jeremiah

Amen

We will keep you and your family in prayer. I pray she will find relief and complete healing and that God will give you comfort during this trial. "His ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts..." Keep the faith, God bless.

THANKS ETERNAL! That is the weightiest first post ever!

Update...Dr. could not confirm anything cancerous from the ultrasound results. Now he passed us on to yet another specialist 3rd Dr in a year. We're not totally out of the woods because Janice lost her mom in her 20's.

If anyone has to deal with testing for cancer be prepared for waiting periods that you will think valuable time is being wasted on treatment. Lots of sleep and sanity lost. As hard as it can be at times remain upbeat as much as possible. Do things you normally do to keep your mind off it unless physcially unable.
