me too. the garage isn't setup exactly like I want quite yet, but it'll get there. I was hoping to get some more welding done this weekend but I'm missing a darn adapter fitting for my TIG, so everything was just tack welded with the stick welder. Frustrating, but it'll be ok once I get the TIG back up and going.

I've been doing a few little things. Sold the plastic seats and got some new Corbeau seats, so those are ready for install.

I got a running EFI 351, which I pulled out this weekend and is now sitting on the floor, waiting to be installed in the buggy.

Now my goal is to get the darn F150 sold and out of the garage so I can have some room to work on my junk. Once I do, I can pull the 302 and get rid of it and start with the 351 install. I'm also working on taking the harness and computer off so I can send it off to get reworked.

We'll see whats next.

Got new seats, a new rear winch (and installed), and some other goodies.

Also got some H1 wheels and runflats. I'm getting new centers cut out as we speak at work and will be adding new rock rings to protect the 8 bolts.

I also removed the engine from an F150 for use in the buggy. Its an EFI setup, so it should be better than waht I have.

no, still not done.

However, Bri really wants it done this summer so she can ride, so its looking much more promising for a summer completition this time.

I'll be working on it more this weekend. Hopefully I'll get at least the seats and the front steering cylinder taken care of as well as new centers put on my H1 wheels.

both would be fine I can read them both. Hey can your burning table read eps files? I have a guy that cuts out our signs on a routing table that uses that file type. If so I was going to draw up some stuff and see how much it wouls cost to get it cut.
