So I've sold my Original '66 but I'm keeping my screen name the same.

No new pics, but I just put in BIG orders with JBG and WH...

Also getting the garage cleaned up/prepared for final assembly. I'll post pics once I have updates.

Bumper Shave

I got a better pic of the bumper profile I used. If you crop this pic, blow it up to roughly the same bumper width, cut it out, and then trace it, it should be exactly the same.

I took some parts to the plater and powder coater today. Should be ready for pick up next week. I also love the fact that I've placed a few orders with Wild Horses this week and each time I've received the parts the next day! How great is that!?! I also sent my Gauge to Kevin to be restored and my window regulators to BC Broncos for their power window conversion. I bought an old school Kayline top which I'll use as a template for a new body color German canvas top (using the Kayline hardware).

I'm also sending the bronco back down to mark at Beach City Broncos for final sanding/touches and I'll have the top painted, but that won't be for a couple weeks. Hopefully I'll get some of the wiring done before that, but I doubt it. I kinda feel like I'm at a stand still until I get the paint finished/worked out so I just keep ordering parts I think I'm going broke...

My next delima is tires. I really want LTB's, but I'm not sure how practical they are. The other option is KM2's which is a great all around tire, but not nearly as aggressive looking.

I wish I had more pics of my progress, but it would be just a bunch of boxes with parts in them. Damn there are a lot of small parts/rubber pieces to these things!

You must feel like a little kid ready to rip through all those boxes to see your new toys . As for tires you can also look into the toyo open country m/t. My friend has those and they are amazing tires, and pretty quite on the street.

Yeah, it's kinda killing me. I've opened every box and just stared at the parts (some test fitting) then put them back! Arghhhhhh, the pain!!! I have all these parts but i dont want to put them on until the paint is worked out. I still need to take my axles apart so hopefully i can get that done before I take it back to San Diego. I'm trying to stay focused on being done by FFF and not rush it (although it's only 7 months away)! I've thought about the Toyo's but the LTB'S and KM2's have the sizes I want for my 17's. I might buy a second set of wheels in 18" and I will either run the Toyo's or Cooper STT's.
