I had about 6 cars when I first started driving, but the first one was a 79 nova in 96

I knew from our first conversation at brake masters we had a good one to add to the pack. Good job on the build so far, sorry we haven't been able to wheel with you yet.

FIrst rig was a short bed 91 Nissan and I wheeled the piss out of it

I'm trying to. Hell, I'm trying to come down from Scottsdale (Douchetopia) to meet up with some Tuscon non-members but seems timing has been bad or someone refuses to strap a small generator to their roof in place of a working alternator. Rolling Eyes -

I actually have enough spare battery to drive about 24 hours now, but that's without AC and XM radio. No dice. I'll have that bolt out this weekend, PB penetrant, heat, and bolt removal tools. I plan on taking pictures so my life can serve as a warning to others.

So just got the wheel spacers from Bilzerd and installed them today. allpro centric 1 1/2. They fit great and hopefully this should stop the rubbing. I will throw up some pics tomorrow

Spacers move the wheels outward and reduce the problem of rubbing the inside of the tire on the suspension or frame, but they also increase the radius of the moving parts when you steer. Be sure to check clearance from lock to lock, both at full droop and full compression to check for wheel well contact.

Bellydoc I just did this today when I pulled out of my driveway to go to lacrosse and I heard a really nasty sound. The spacers fixed the first problem and created another one. The tire almost clears, it just hits one small bolt that holds the trim piece on. By close I mean like 1 nm. Considering just removing the bolt and hoping that all the other ones hold the trim on.

Just finished the snorkel install, will post pics tomorrow. It's ghetto but it will do the job until I have the money do create a more permanent solution. Talked with trailbus and he said that a exhaust place could custom bend some pipe to make a nice seamless snorkel. Has anyone done this or know a good place to get it done?

I also re-geared my rig to 4.30 from 4.10 and added a factory e-locker. Bumpers are in the making, with lacrosse season winding up they will have to take the back burner but I hope to get them finished asap
