i bought some tube for the front "bumper", but am delayed by my tube bender having a bad part. a replacement part is being supplied by the manufacturer......
mabe i'll switch to painting the roof.
how hard could that be?
gonna mount the winch differently this time, but i want to bend some tube, so i can see if it fits what i see in my head.
takes a while for me to get going, sometimes.
wanna try a fish run in a couple of weeks, something lazy.

mabe the winch will mount like this, and not rip off.
mabe it will fit a "bumper" that is still just imaginary.
kudos to woodward-fab for getting my bender fixed- now it becomes all my fault, and i can put more consideration into the "bumper".
[Linked Image from hosting.photobucket.com]
i thought mabe a zebra pattern(hatari?) would work as "camo", but don't think i could pull it off.
the white roof makes skunk possible, but i don't think i'll go that route either.
we'll see.
still looking forward

made a bit of progress on the winch/controls/"bumper" project.
mounted the solenoid box near the battery, and the control cable plug in the dash.
[Linked Image from hosting.photobucket.com]
the "bumper" will look like this......
[Linked Image from hosting.photobucket.com]
i painted it to smooth out the metalglue.
mabe it won't just rip off.
mabe i'll make a contraption for the rear.
"planning" another test run soon, we should try the front axle a bit, to confirm function, on this foray.
still forward movement.

then i bolted the fairlead holder("bumper") on and wound up the winch.

i'm getting used to how it looks, and am beginning to add some accessory circuits.

Amazing! So bummed we won't be seeing it on the trails this year but good to see you've been hard at it!

Also, for future reference on the solid rotors you can swap to IFS spindles and brakes for the bigger vented brakes if one were using a yota axle on something heavier. Not really worth doing on a Suzuki i don't think, plus it adds width.

Good work Richard

suzitoo took me into the sierras last month, on a shakedown run.
went to the shaver/huntington area, and was amazed by what that fire last year did.
suzi worked fine climbing out of the valley, and she got me home.
i only put it in 4wd once, and that was for a poser for toasty.
[Linked Image from hosting.photobucket.com]

mostly just imagining some "fitting out" things, and i need a spare tire to cram into the back.
some rocker protection and a rear bumper should be in the plan somewhere,
and mabe a small rack, so she can carry morestuff.
gonna mount the spare gas on the tail, and probably h2o also.
the lotus is receiving needed attention.
looking forward
