just slowly inching toward the "shop" area.
2 major things are planned for the first go-around:
repair some body mount failures(front of "the tub").
install front locker.
the tub is collapsing onto the mounting points, so suzi is wanting to flex at the firewall and door pillars. so far it's just effecting the door alignments. mabe i can flex it back level.
got the locker today, and some recommended transmission/transfer case mounts, so i can remove the straps that are holding her together.
also gonna upgrade a replacement r drag link.
fordyce was brutal.

hey russell- how u b?
no cal-mini on suzi the psychic, and probably not much more flex in her future, but perhaps a bit more body clearance if the body repairs work.
i am interested in putting this locker in front, and seeing how much difference it makes.
while she's getting this attention, i may look at making some changes to rear shock mounts- get the lowers raised so they are not rock feelers. may have to raise the uppers, to keep the shock from being the travel stop, or find different shocks....
we will see.
my brother is doing some work on miss bitchy, so she will be able to play this season. his place burned in the butte fire last year. miss bitchy is one of the only things that survived the flames- scorched and melted plastics- somehow the tires didn't cook off(unlike the tractor, pickup, golfcart, house, all the out buildings, a good number of trees, etc).

this forum looks and acts different. wasn't able to modify my last post. must be something i did, 'cause. wadaino.
anyhoo, "the lotus" is still inhabiting the service area of "the shop" with no front suspension, awaiting parts from england.
i will setup for welding, and "beef" a replacement draglink for suzi's right side.
this will be the start of the "sierra carnage" repairs/modifications.
i will take some pictures and see if i can make that happen....

i have completed the first of the sierra carnage repairs.
suzi bent her right draglink(again), so.......
took a replacement draglink from a later model unit, and some 1 1/2" angle stock.

stick some stickers on, to show the rocks- next time.
this is an "improved" version of what suzi's wearing on the left.

note: the later model draglinks look beefier than stock, but are really just bigger in diameter. actually pretty thin.....
haven't bent the left one since adding some "slider/stiffener" material some time back.

not sure about the picture thing, and there must be some way to make attachments, and what happened w/being able to modify a post?
anyway, next step is to lift suzi's body off the chassis, so i can figure out how to repair her collapsing body.
apparently, her "tub" requires more support than the stamped sheetmetal "here- bolt to this" can supply.
note that the tube rockers(body)and tube rockers(chassis)are doing a good job as sliders, and the front skidplate has held up well.
the center skidplate had to be removed prior to fordyce, so it is undamaged, and the plate mounting struts did a pretty good job of fending off rocks, so they need straightening.
still need to replace the trans mounts.........
been eyeballin' those rear shock mounts, and something will have to happen there.
oh, yea. the front locker.
and mix in fluid changes and filter changes, and valve adjustments and plug changes as we go......
i'll be taking pictures, and will continue trying to figure out this new website.......
dreamtarget- late april.
haha

I can't make your pics, either.

I am well, and have been assigned to a project in Klamath Falls. Will be there off and on until August or September.
