Stop somewhere you have wanted to see eat sleep investigate the surroundings and then drive the rest of the way.  Make a mini vacation out of it.  Enjoy your self.  Hell take your wife drop her at some ladies event and roll into Canby.  Tell your wife it is a honeymoon!


Right now I'm going after work. And faster if it's just me.

I ran a Z20 5 speed in my 70 521 with a 520 drive shaft for over 250,000 miles with no problems.  Eveven hauled over 1 ton sand loads with it more than once.  Ran it down the freeway at 85 to 90 miles an hour all the time traveling back and forth fro Bagdad AZ to Phoenix AZ. 

I agree its a fluke thing. Or pounding gears and got some axle wrap. I am 1 piece aluminum of course custom made with a 280 Z and FJ and no problems all the way up to almost 120 MPH. If it saves you money Mike put the old one in plus it is better for lowered trucks anyway. I just like the fact of no carrier bearing, just one more thing to give problems.

If you leave the trailer at the motel... who's gonna know you're a trailer queen? Oh, did I say that out loud?
Besides, once people see how big you are they'll totally understand.
I can say that, I too live in an extra large format.

I am not tall but just girthy.lol

Also I only trailer when broken. which has not been alot lately. thank god.

Still debating about towing truck to Canby. Leaving after work towing will take longer. If i leave at 0400 am on friday i won't be there until about 2000-2100 hours. Hmmm

Not bad. Not factory either.

Ready for final sand and spray. It will be far from perfect but it in itself an improvement on the OG fenders.

 

Will start on the passenger fender next. I want to finish both and spray both at one time. Tis metal is so thin it is hard to make straight. The passenger fender will be done different by welding factory hole first on the car and then making the new hole for arrow light. metal gets wrapped bad and well you got to build up with body filler. I hope the passenger one goes better.

#1487255 Cuz President TRUMPS Murican dictatorship??? (It's a Traitor free zone!)

Me being a Trump supporter, I think this is good. Comey did nothing with Hillary and we all know it's true. How ever if the so called fucked up left is right they will find out once and for all if the Russians played a role in the 2016 elections. Done properly they will hire a independent investigation team to look in to it and find the truth. Because if so I will be the first to dump Trump myself.
