Tried to save a couple bucks by going through "Bumper Superstore" for my seat. 12 days later and they still can't give me an order status. Cancelled that order and called wild horses. Shipped that day! I should have the seats to mock up by Tuesday so we can start the cage.
Moral of the story, if you're getting good service somewhere, just suck up the price difference. I'd have the cage started by now if I had the seats.
My list of wants is starting;
Saginaw swap
E-fan
Rear axle welded
Rear axle trusted
Add more shocks and bump stops
Relocate battery
Not sure how much I want to tear into the engine compartment to clean and lose weight. Same with the exhaust. Just seems like a lot of work

Rule 1.5 of race car building is it must be loud! Off with the pipes!

Anyone available Sunday for a build day? Lots of of fab work with roll cage, seat mounts, seat belts, sliders, rear bumper.... it's only going to hit 90 and we'll be in the garage so it shouldn't be too bad. Let me know. Starting at 9am.

You're closer than a lot of the other guys though, so I wanted to see what the distance was.

Post Re: "The Other Bronco" bronco build thread
Pictures aren't in order but basically I'm getting close to done with the cage and once I'm done I can mount a seat and belts, fuel cell and take it out for a test run to see if it runs ok. It's giving signs of a cracked block with smokey exhaust and oil congealing inside the radiator. Might be a worn valve guide causing smokey exhaust and internal tranny cooler could be leaking into radiator so I need to flush it out and see what happens. Shocks are 2.5" FOA 2 at 12" travel and 2 at 14" travel
