That was just a point-n-shoot pos Kodak. Ray shoots really fantastic pics.

I don't know my plans for the remainder of the year, will be made around moving and work. Fixing up Roxy and my new turbo Mighty Max (haven't settled on a name yet), are my current automotive plans.

suzi is sitting a little taller now. i can think of places where i had to watch clearance overhead before....
i now have her body fastened to the chassis. i now have cinched-up the mounting points and measure 1 1/4" more lift(i believe 2 3/8" over stock), hereby to be known as "a 2" body lift".
i used a variety of scrap to make up cushions/spacers/etc. as well as a lot of blocking and my stock jack(i love that thing).
[Linked Image]
i had to modify the steering shaft 'cause it seemed too short for some reason. washers did the trick. seems good enough- it's only steering.
[Linked Image]
the gas fill was a little tight, but shouldn't be a problem, and the brakeline block(passenger side) still bolted up to the chassis.
the front "bumper" pieces fit back ok.
[Linked Image]
the rear bumper will require some thought.
[Linked Image]
i never figure on "using" my bumpers. i consider them to be
more like "feelers". i mostly need the support for the bumper cover. i am thinking of butchering the bumper to lighten it, making some sorta brackets to raise it, and fasten that cover back on.
i still have other pieces to massage back on, but i can mabe move her around to make sure i'm not overlooking something.

ok- i did move her back and forth, and i may have to work over the transmission shift hole in "the hump". it does find 2nd,4th, and reverse,but it seems tight.
i put the headlamps and grill back in,
i mounted a 70cm antenna.
for some dumb reason i had attached a couple of exhaust hangers to the body. they don't fit anymore.
more to come.......

suzi the psychic is almost back into run shape.
the front end pieces went on pretty much as they came off, and she looks kinda like nothing changed.
[Linked Image]
i was able to modify the rear bumper to mount it higher, and the bumper cover will make her a** look nice.
it's just mocked-up here, but it'll work with a little more fondling....

Deleted post on Page 8 with large pic. At Richard's request, a down-sized version of suzi in action, a little bit of articulation going on:

Richard, whatever the uploaded picture size is, I don't believe the Wire postings resize the pics. I was happy to comply with your request, and found a better shot to boot.

thanks again for that, russell.
i don't see many pics of suzi "in action", and now i realize how much higher she is sitting since my last suspension/body tweakings.
i'm winding up this phase of playing with suzi- i have a couple of exhaust hangers to weld on(not to the body this time!), and a little wireing(radio circuits) to do- and am looking forward to seeing how she works.
always looking forward....

i was able to spend a little quality time on suzi's communication gear.
i replaced the pos midland cb radio with a used cherokee cm5. seems functional(real sweet swr) with more features- i must look at the manual and learn how to use it.
i also ran a new power lead from the #2 battery(behind the seat) to the "ham cluster" on the dash. this time i used some 16/2 boat cable, and am considering replacing the original lead in kind.

so.
suzi the psychic is pretty much ready to run. i still have some ideas of trying to gut out the remains of a/c stuff from under her dash, and i probably should totally unload all the gear for an inventory/repack and add the early season equipment(chainsaw, boat anchor, chains).
work is still interfering with the rest of my life.
