did the chevy 64s on saturday, took all day, ran into some problems drilling out the rivets. in the end it was all worth it. the truck rides great, havent had a chance to stretch it out yet. ended up with 3 of the half ton chevy leafs and the smallest leaf from my explorer pack. no overload. still have to go back and paint a few things. she sits with a little cali lean now that i took the blocks out.
possibly in the fall ill grab another set of 64s and build them with the ranger and xj leafs ive collected and have them arched a bit with a shackle flip.
quick little whoring.. just been driving her mostly. got my brake conversion done, having a few issues with bad pads and might need a new master. but no biggie ill have her sorted out tonight. might even be able to get the parking brake fixed.
finally got around to uploading pics from the race over the weekend in fallon, nv.
cruised out to reno and got a little too schwasted on friday night. still managed to get up early and hit the road to fallon on time.
randoms from the course prerun,
found a sweet spot on the side of the course to watch the race and chill for the night. my buddy and i ended up leaving at 2am when the race was over to get back to sac cause he had work sunday morning. what a day..
cool thing was i got home and was able to have a full day. gave her a bath then replaced the wheel bearings as well as the fuel filter.
what she looked like when i got home..
turns out my passenger side seal blew on a landing. at least i changed them at the right time! haha. still had plenty of grease inside the bearings either way.
last random cause she looked good parked all clean at work lol. thats all for now.
still trying to get vids chopped and uploaded. what software do you guys use? had movie maker on my last hard drive and loved it but it didnt get moved over when i got the new hd.
my tire gate got redesigned to be a laydown to be used with my shell and still keep weight over the rear. other than that, found a leaky main seal ill have to deal with soon. been putting off a clutch as long as i can since its my dd and ill have a few other things to tend to while the tranny is out.
also, deavers are too mainstream. i loved the way the 64s rode, so i found another set. an arched set. these are built with ranger leafs and chevy leafs. arched 12in iirc. these leafs were originally on alec n's truck, made their way up to yuba and now (after cramming them into the gf's lexus), theyre mine. they need some work. ill be breaking down the pack and painting everything, the center pins were a little jacked so a bigger 7/16th pin will be going in. still thinking on how im going to make or weld on "straps" or whatever you want to call them so the leafs dont separate or move. these should handle the weight the rear end of my truck sees a little better than the f31s, which are too soft for my liking. although i have a fairly used set.
