The weather is crappy, no wheelin' in the forecast.  It isn't too hot and you're itchin' to do something off-roady without getting wet?

This weekend I'm going to start the last big push on the buggy.  The goal: At the end of the weekend it will be suspended and the punch list will be down to plumbing (brake lines, hydraulic lines, cooler lines, fuel lines, etc.), electrical, drive shafts and exhaust (the last two I'll hire out) and if I run out of time there may be some painting or body panels to do.

If you're bored and want to see the last hard bits fall into place feel free to call and swing by. I might not stop to visit much but if you come in work clothes I promise to put you to work.  I'll put on my best Tom Sawyer act in the process.

If you don't know my phone # then just PM me and I'll send it to you.  I should see the PM on my connected email account which I do check periodically while in the garage.

Very close.  Thanks for asking.

I'm very behind on blogging now.  Might have to spend an evening this week catching up while waiting on a few more parts.

0- Removed a bunch of parts for painting and dusty work this weekend.  Covered engine and some other parts to keep overspray down.

 

1- Fully suspended the buggy on links and coilovers (woot!  Long time in coming)

 

2- T-case shifters done except for knobs... can't decide what to do for knobs. 

 

3- Chassis primed and painted (decided to rattle-can instead of powder coat)

4- Replaced several things I removed before painting

Pictures will have to wait.  I can't upload from my Ubuntu box to the forum...and that's my main box at home.  I'll try to get something on the blog soon.  Trust me that a coat of primer and some paint makes it go places.

Here's an image very near the current state.  Final assembly is soon.  The image was huge when I directly pulled it in here.
