suzi the psychic has spirit, and she always has gotten me back home.
i poke into the sierras- that is a humungous granite rock!
btw- suzi's frequent trail partner, miss bitchy, is an '87 Montero(still on first owner).
forgot to get a better b4 pic...…sawsalled the mount bolt and considered what to cut next...

spent a lot of time removing the tar/vinyl sound deadening stuff from the floor, 'cause it makes a mess when it melts, and it burns well.

i have cut some angle pieces to replace that sheetmetal squash, and will build the mount point on that.
this will probably be better than the other side? mabe.

Looking at all your pictures again and noticed Suzi has plenty of Scrapes, Scratches, bumps and bruises, not to mention the metal stitches. And through all of that she always manages to get you home.

I would say she has the serious toughness, never give up spirit and can do attitude that her owner has instilled in her. Keep up the great work “ Rascott” and she will always do you right.

managed to butter in some steel pieces, and this should work for awhile...…

inside will be a bump under the "carpet", so i'll have something to rest my heel on.

i also found the front mount was also failed, so i had to revisit that.... this is where a po had impaled her, in her previous life.

these little suzukis are built pretty lightly, so that whompin' 1.3L motor can push it.
haha

changed my mind and am revisiting the rear end again.
the noise that has been developing for some years seems to be related to some very worn pinion bearings.
this should be interesting.
got a fish window opening in a week.

Sounds like fun, hope everything works out. I'm not quite ready to take on a project like that yet, I don't even have a press (yet).

suzi the psychic has completed another run, but weather and road closures forced us to camp on the river near hwy89/4. hoped to get thru the gate for the next couple of days, but the caltrans guys pretended i was invisible...…
the thursday run over carson pass was interesting- lots of snow/mush.
friday cleared up nicely, so i put her new top on.
leaning goth?
[Linked Image]
saturday-sunday was on/off snow/rain, but simplecamp worked fine.
[Linked Image]
no stretching her legs on this run. good lazy.
looking forward

suzi the psychic appreciates the nod.
i was real pleased with her last run, even though it was mostly hyway stuff.
a bit more driveline spacer has since been added, some useless wire has been removed, and a failed battery terminal clamp(in the "house" batteries)
has been replaced.
couple more stickers added......
