  1. I have a Newport I put in TODD....same: simple, easy and layed out nice...as with most things like that....not cheap.
  2. You read my mind....sell it to someone you know who can "hold" the title for 6 months/year and then sell it back. Flipping it quickly (days/weeks) might raise a few eyebrows...might need to take a longer approach with a trustworthy person.
  3. Mark.

    Would you make my raffle thread a 'sticky'?

    Then un-sticky it after the BBQ.



  4. split the rad support so I can loosen and tip forward a little JIC the serpentine needs replacement after...well, whenever
  5. Yah he did my gen and starter tags....good stuff.
  6. Up above I have a pic of the location based off the bolt on the door hinge, should get you inthe ball park easily.
  7. Stock would be 2 solid mounted on one side and springs on the other end. This allows the frame to flex and not twist the tank. The spring loaded side of the tank should "float" on the springs to allow for this flexture.
  8. After much angst and time and thought and putting it off....the front clip finally has it's home on all the new mounting points.
  9. The recent COE made me think of this.....were is the project Joe?
  10. Doing a roll back or ramp with PUMA was my original plan, but now I plan to bob the frame and make a trailer hauler. Depending on what you want to haul, a ramp really restricts what you can do, anything bigger than a car gets almost impossible due to height and a tall CG. The COE's are a "cute" ugly. 😛
  11. Yah you'll need to pry it out. Then things will slide off. I'd think MAP or propane would suffice for heat.
  12. Keeping things similar and not moving to a solenoid seems to be the way things were done back in the day. On my COE I do scratch my head...but such a limited run likely didn't necessitate a new direction.
