Oooh, interesting, someones been looking at the links in Daves sig
That reminds me, I have a standard chassis that not likely to be used again....... although my cheap dremel is about to die Schumacher wheels are tough little blighters

Wonder if I could make myself an upper bumper support... my extra alloy post already helps more than I thought it would

Dang Joseph, very nice concept, never seen that done on a Cuda before I like the swaybar mount in the rear as well, very good idea!

Run heath run!!!!

In the middle of rebuilding my Cuda, in preperation for tomorrow Giving the bearings the full treatment most have been soaking for about two days already so should be mighty free spinning when I'm finished
Had myself confused when taking out the diff bearings though, found 5 of them Stupid me didn't realise the bearing in the Xenon drive system uses the same size Was trying to work out how bearings could multiply for a few seconds

The weather here really is depressing right now been raining for days, it's dull all the time, get dark really early and is cold and miserable, you SoCal guys think you can send some sunshine over here please?

Ooh, I thought you had the hottest swaybar mount out there... Do you think you could mount it onto that plate if you had the right mounts? I can send you some mounts from my SD to try if you're interested in experimenting.

When I was going to work early on Thursday, I heard a station from Iowa, on a.m., talk about this stuff on a news show, they had a report on that stuff and it was a hit, they sold out of all what they made in like 2-4 hours on the internet. The money was raised for charity. Some caller said that it tasted like turkey and gravy put in a blender and sat out for 3 days...(how did she survive??) lol, anyway, it would be pretty nasty and that is what I think DJ drank while watching the packers and lions... while playing w/ his strapping tape.

Hey if you guys had a chance to get a web special, would you? It's more than I wanted to spend but other than the relocated battery and motor, what else does it offer other than exclusivity?
