Getting the Wheeling Fever
Suzi looks like she's coming together nicely! Those 33's should help get you to those fishing holes a little easier. By the time you get done with her she'll be "SUPER" SUZI the wonder truck.

Keep it top side up and rolling out the progress updates,

suzi the psychic is wheels down again.
assembled enough to move her around a bit(after gear oil fill), so i can sort out any alignment issues and see if things still look o k.
still more metal i want to glue-on under her.
still eyeballin' the 33's- i'm conflicted- want to believe she could turn them.
haha

put some fluids in, made some alignment tweaks, and tried some street work.
feel o k, so progress(?) will continue.....still need to beef the rear a-arm mounts, this will probably include building a new front skid.
last season suzi started leaking steering fluid, and i have a new pressure hose to put on. the low pressure hose seems to be soft&swollen, so should change that too.
movin' right along.

managed to r&r the window and crank gear, driver's door, and made it work better.
the passenger door is exhibiting similar symptoms, so i'll apply some of the same boogery to it....
there is beauty in function.
the driver side mirror is too busted up to repair, so i need to find a replacement.
got some tune-up stuff arriving to promote a successful smog testing. hope that works.
also gonna refresh her front brakes.
put steering fluid in it and tried to see where it leaks from again.
guess i should replace those hoses...… mabe that'll fix it.

smog testing didn't go as i had hoped.
idle HC is a bit too high, and the tech didn't like my modified header or the non CARB catalytic converter...….
gonna throw some money at her- replace the header/cat setup.
decided to revamp the stowage, and have torn out 'most everything.
i hope to carry less stuff, or at least organize it better.
considered mounting the spare differently, played with different locations, considered not carrying one,....
finally getting some rain here. we need it!
still pretending to be in "go" condition soon.

i need to take some pictures.
i am almost done with a mostly new exhaust- at least back to the muffler.
this better work- started with a doug thorley header and a new catalytic converter.
should be able to make 'er smogable(?) in couple of days.
still trying some stowage changes.
this corona situation makes this all more interesting.
stay safe.

very pleased to report that suzi the psychic has passed the smog hurdle(once again!), and cleaner than ever.
now we can start getting serious.
here is the doug thorley header.

watched the tech drive it and see the back-up lights don't work.
mabe stopped a powersteering leak- this is a recurring problem?
still looking forward.
