fast, did you get your powercoated parts back yet? 23 days to go!!

All but my wheel rings.  Trans, Motor are in and running and shifting.   bounce jj: Broke my own record for how many times they were in and out.  Five times in and out before I got it right  beathorse.gif~c200 <a href="http://www.animateit.  Still have a radiator seep but I think the barrs leek is going to take care of it (got a little rough with it taking it out).  Console is in with all the radio crap, sifters, fuel pressure Gage stuffed in.  New temporary seats are in, have to take my Twisted Stitch seats back to AZ for a recover.  Rear trailing arms are on with the hubs and brakes, started putting the front a arms on yesterday.  Back brakes are bled will do front tonight.   Install all the sheet metal and Aline the wheels.  And I think it will be ready. No time for the dyno to tune for E-85 right now so I'll have to settle for the 510 it has on E-50 I need to replace the turbo it is sounding a little scratchy. So I have reservations and will shoot for the 21 to the 25th.   

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Not sure about you guys, but i'm getting STOKED!!

Next week i'll be doing some car prep.
-New Doug Heim joints in the front end
-New rear suspension bushings
And that's about it.
I've gotta make a list of tools to bring and add a spare tire to my trailer, oohh and grease the bearings.

I will probably bring my welder too....just in case.  Possibly some random nuts and bolts too.  I like to be prepared for anything.

its a shame carl and enemy are missing the trip. sounds like fast will be there.

always excited to go for sure! infact i'll be pulling the toyhauler around next day or two to clean it up and start loading.    you meantioned spare tire......if your pulling a tandem axle you might consider 2 spares considering the distance you are traveling. just a thought is all as i always have 2 spares after seeing people blow 2 on the trailers.   


i am not sure of the weather but as long as the highs are above 60 with min wind....... it will be great!

65* ambient is damn nice weather down there.....in the sun or on the sand. now when it's 50 to 55* for a high and cloud cover plus a breeze and misting/ raining off and on for 2 days straight then it gets a little cold  ;) ;)
