    That's exactly where that came from, good call.


    I started some engine assembly this evening, getting the flex plate bolted on and torqued down, starter installed and checked for clearance, and checked clearances for the header..











    Kyle blocked out the doors, it looks like our "adjustment" with the stovepipe crimper pliers did the trick to remove the high spot...

    Man, those fenders look so nice! A lot of people would be happy at that stage!

    Strange, they were all there earlier, but now just the icon....

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    They were here when I checked in first thing this morning; and they're back again now.

    From this site I skipped to the Mavericks NZ site; and there were no photos there.
    So your assumption of photobucket doing maintenance is most probably correct.

    We worked Sunday this past weekend, Kyle got a few more pieces media blasted so we could get some epoxy sprayed.. Then, as I was spraying, Kyle gave the wagon a Scotchbrite scrub with some soapy water to neutralize the soda...

















    Doors moved out of the way.....for now..









































    Sometimes the part has no holes for securing for paint....

    Great work! The chassis really went together fast. That v banded exhaust is awesome too!

    Great save! Somehow I just feel better when I see a pro has to do "an adjustment" on final assembly.
    I'm not the only one!
