I'll probably leave Sunday morning.  Don't plan on wheeling Sunday

I gotta work a half day so I can roll about 10.  I'll see if Amber can uber to my work so I can just take the rig loaded and head out from there.
sure wish that 202 was completed, maybe next year

Really nice build Chuck.  You are definitely fast and get a lot done in a short period of time.
Looking forward to seeing this done.

Edit:  This is my opinion which should carry no weight since I have no experience just a lot of reading on the subject.  You'd probably be better off talking to Davies as he is going to do his buggy and may be in the process of building the rear axle now.

You have a few options but it's going to be cheaper to find another 60. 
Links below are for reference on price and parts you may need if you go the 14b route

Oh, I forgot to add that I got some comfort items added as well.  A remote volume for my amp and a double 12 volt outlet for charging phone, gopro, etc. 
It's not in the picture but right under the dash.  I plan to do a switch for my winch as well.

Thanks Pat. 

Got everything wired up, cleaned up the wires and did an alignment. 
Damn my eyes are way off is all I got to say.  I ended up cutting my passenger side arm too short, luckily I have tube to fix it.  Just need to get 2 bungs tomorrow from Foddrill.
Picking up my trailer tomorrow after work.  I need to do the bearings and fix a few wheel studs and that will be ready.
Hoping to get out Saturday about 10 am or so. says it should be a great day

Anybody ever seen an ArtCarr shifter do this while bolted down or know what may have caused it?  I assume it's related to the cracked housing at the seams. 
Edit:  I took the shifter cover off and fixed this and re-routed the cable so hopefully that resolves the issue.

Got half of the dash completed for the panel.  The other half will house the 3 gauges I haven't purchased yet.
Coil over reservoirs mounted.

Some progress. 
The 3 link is officially complete.
My brand new shiny radiator was great for about an hour until I stripped out the trans cooler threads in the radiator.  I'll be running an external cooler now

I did just loop #2 to alternator lug. Left #1 off.
Now I'm on to wiring my lights and accessories then mount my panel

The top picture below is what Patrick sent me on how he did his. 
The bottom picture is just another one I found while searching if you wanted to add an indicator.

So, what you're saying is you know about as much as I do? haha  :lee:

Anybody else?

I was reading that diagram wrong. 
Basically what I'm needing to know is where do wires 1 and 2 go?
I have 3 going to the solenoid already.

Is the below image correct in that all 3 wires from my alternator on my sbc 350 can go to the same post on my starter?
Bypassing all original wiring and don't want to buy a 1 wire right now just for this.

Davies was over today and helped me solve problems I didn't even know I had. 

I ended up having to put a bend in my panhard bar to clear my diff on one side and the harmonic balancer on the other while flexed.  Glad my protools bender could bend the 1 3/4 .250 wall DOM
I was out of square but fixed that
Found out I need to move my shock mounts down about 2" for better up travel and to sit level
found out where I need to mount my bump stops and lenghts for limit straps
I can leave my brake lines how they are which is a win

It's still leaning but I'm not that worried about it anymore.  Davies thinks he has a spring that will work to level it.

I flexed it out pretty good finally and on the passenger side i get it to 15" of shaft exposed.  13.5" on the drivers side due to clearance

I was dumb so you guys can sound smart!

If anybody else is going to get links hardened at Phoenix Heat Treat below is what was done and the 2 questions of what they asked me where I had no idea what the answer was.
My material was 2" x .250 wall 4130 chromoly

Their price is $125 setup charge and then .85 cents per pound

- The welds for the bungs aren't big enough to need normalizing
- When they ask what hardness it was 38-42

SO you can build the buggy now without tearing yours down?

took advantage of this cool morning and put in a couple hours on the blazer. 

What would be the easiest way to bend or clearance my exhaust out of the way of my top link?  Preferably without removing the exhaust.
I'm pretty sure this is what is causing my body lean
