hey russell-we think alike.
the rest of her old tube was fine, but the drain plug was becoming difficult- so much of it was ground away!
i made up some sacrificial skin to thicken the bottom.....
[Linked Image]
and stiched it on.

after i flail around at it with a grinder for awhile, i'll add another smaller layer - bring it up to grade.
interested in how these larger rear brakes could work. everything always felt kinda weak back there.

weather has conflicted w/suzitime, but the axle is complete.
in little bits, the brake plumbing and cables are going together, and i have decided to replace the front brake hoses.
30yrs. could be pushing it, and caps510 showed us what losing a front brakehose can be like- on the last sierra carnage run!
anyway- mabe suzi the psychic will take me to work next week. testrun.
i can smell the season, and want to be ready.
looking forward.

kinda wet, but i was seeing the possibility...….
finished the plumbing and bled out all the old brake fluid, and put her shoes back on.
[Linked Image]
bent the stock brake lines to run higher across the tube- used to be right across the back. mabe a bit less exposed.
gonna street her in the am- see if i tightened everything.

been having only bits of time recently, but suzi gets tickled when possible.
a couple of years ago she suffered some of fordyce, and destroyed one of the right side bodymounts.
the left side showed signs of similar failure, but i only fixed the "broken" one.
mabe i can make a neater repair this time.
i should take som pics...… mabe this weekend.

i hope it will take abuse better than the stock xmember, and help align the driveline better- still have to adapt the skidplate(s) to the new arrangement, but it'll happen.

this is the left bodymount(under drivers feet) that finished tearing off last season.

gonna metalglue some stiffener/mount stuff in there....

kinda crappy picture. i'll try again before i hack it up.

OUCH! Looks like Suzi has a booboo. She must be a pretty tough girl'. We don't have much for rocks to crawl around on here in Kansas. Can be had in any direction but north, but it takes a minimum of 5 hrs. I'm interested in seeing how you do the repair so keep up the pictures (please).
